Rivers Cuomo's original spreadsheet circa July 24, 2008
Rivers Cuomo's spreadsheet circa October 30, 2010

"The 4 and 5 Star Demos of Rivers Cuomo" (written, or deliberately stylized, on the spreadsheet as "The 4 and 5 star demos of river como") is a spreadsheet created and maintained by Rivers Cuomo that lists the names of demos he deems of high quality. On July 24, 2008, it was posted on, with certain songs designated as songs that either appeared on Alone, Buddyhead's Gimme Skelter compilation, or the then unreleased Alone II. It released the previously unknown track list of Alone II. An updated version of the spreadsheet was again posted on temporarily on October 30, 2010 featuring tracks attributed to Alone III. Many of the tracks listed still remain unreleased such as The Bottle of Wine Song, although it was heard during Karl's DJ set on The Weezer Cruise.


Changes to the Alone II track listing were made following the release of the spreadsheet, with "I've Thrown It All Away", "Bad Girl," "Softies" removed in favor of "Victory on the Hill," "Harvard Blues," "My Brain Is Working Overtime," "Can't Stop Partying," "I Admire You So Much," and "Cold and Damp." It is speculated that all of the 2008 spreadsheet entries were conceived or retooled after Geffen wanted more commercial material for The Red Album.
