"Caveman" is a Weezer demo.

Overview

"Caveman" was leaked mysteriously on October 20, 2017, when a Reddit user under the name "ubetterstartpackin" posted a link purporting to be the song "QB Blitz" that was, in fact, the song "Caveman". The user later posted a link claiming it to be the unreleased Rivers Cuomo demo "I've Thrown It All Away," actually simply a joke remix of "I'm Your Daddy."

Though nothing about the song has been officially verified, AllThingsWeezer member Seth claimed to know that it was recorded in the summer of 2012. A month later, three demos (purportedly also recorded around 2012) were leaked - "Call the Police" and "El Presidente", in addition to the 2007 demo "East Coast vs. West Coast" with a new bridge and drums from Pat Wilson.

Lyrics

Who needs another Lou Ferrigno
Splitting his shirt when things slip out of his control
Wise men do say that honey gets more bees than vinegar
I'm not sure, so I guess I'll try and let a tantrum out

Right now, got to be a caveman, wow
Right now, got to be a caveman

I'd like to be a soft and cuddly guy
Sing songs, tell jokes, and while away the evening time
But they won't take me seriously, they'll think that I'm a puff
No drugs, I'll have to show 'em what I am made of

Right now, got to be a caveman, wow
Right now, got to be a caveman

Kicking, screaming, bitching, yelling, and hitting
This is the way we get to munch a carcass
Kicking, screaming, bitching, yelling, and stomping
Just like our friend, the mighty brontosaurus

Aaaaahhhhh

Right now, got to be a caveman, wow
Right now, got to be a caveman

Kicking, screaming, bitching, yelling, and hitting
This is the way we get to munch a carcass
Kicking, screaming, bitching, yelling, and stomping
Just like our friend, the mighty brontosaurus
