"Ecce Homo" is a collection of demos written by Rivers Cuomo, from 2011 onwards, for Weezer's ninth studio album. The phrase "Ecce homo", Latin for "Behold the man", is used by Pontius Pilate in the Vulgate translation of the Gospel of John, wherein he presents a scourged Jesus Christ, bound and crowned with thorns, to a hostile crowd shortly before his Crucifixion. The album cover would have been the 1475 painting, also titled Ecce Homo, later used for the fan-club single "Everybody Needs Salvation", and would have included a fold-out star map and a picture of the Tower Of Babel. Many of the tracks from this collection would eventually appear on Everything Will Be Alright in the End. Some drafts have the characters "Sebastian" and "Mary". It is also possibly intended to be a musical.
