Featured song: "Hey Domingo!"

"Hey Domingo!" is a Weezer demo recorded in 2002 in contention for the band's sessions for the band's planned fifth album. It was released for free on weezer.com that same year, and solo Rivers Cuomo demos followed in 2020 as part of the digital compilation Alone VIII: The Maladroit Years.

The song was likely inspired by the 2002 World Cup, held in Korea and Japan. Daegu, South Korea, one of the host cities of that year's tournament, is mentioned in the song. Cuomo would reference the World Cup in later songs "My Day is Coming" and "Represent." "Hey Domingo!" shares a Catalog O' Riffs entry number with the unheard song "Don't You Let My Heart Down," as well as "Peace" from the band's fifth album, Make Believe. Despite this, "Peace" bears little resemblance to "Hey Domingo!"

The significance of the phrase "Hey Domingo!" is unknown, though the name was later briefly used as the name of a label created by Todd Sullivan (the A&R representative who originally signed Weezer to Geffen) in 2005.
