Weezerpedia's featured quote is a monthly showcase of a quote from our transcript archives. Weezerpedia currently has hundreds of interviews, record reviews, articles, and more, and our editors work together each month to select one that sheds light on the bands/topics we cover, highlights or "platforms" a band we want to support, etc. We have similar pages for featured songs, featured videos, featured articles, and featured images. Weezerpedia:Featured list is being put on hiatus for a spell.

Featured quote - Dave Sitek on working on Weezer (The Black Album), Black Album bio - November 2018.



I view the album as a rubber band and each finger is a song, and it pulls it apart and snaps it back into place. I think there’s certainly fidelity or instrumentation choices that are wildly different, but if you step back further, I think that can be said about life. You’re still going through the experience in the same vehicle. If I do my job right, you’ll be able to look at this as a complete body of work. “Can't Knock the Hustle” has some aspects to it — the thread is the identity of the song — the fidelity of the song is quite different in each one. When I sent over “Can't Knock the Hustle” I fully intended to be fired on the spot. When I wasn’t, I figured they were into taking chances. There’s a lot of moments lyrically that speak to the Weezer that I knew, but they also speak to people who don’t know who Weezer is. Let’s service those people too. I kind of make drug music for drug people. I try to preserve that sense of wonder. I wasn’t pressured in any way by anyone to sound by anything.

-Dave Sitek, November 2018
