|That was a thrill having you gun me around in your Chevelle|
After a few PBRs
Poor girl didn’t have a seat belt
The Amazonian Queens
Bodies like storks, blonde flamingos
Blasting the Scorpions
You said they’re playing the Forum soon
Do I want to go?
I said I saw them on my 14th birthday
You said, “You are so lucky
You got to see them when they were weird and cool.”
According to Rivers Cuomo in a post in the Weezer Fan Club Facebook group, the song was originally written in 2012 following the first Weezer Cruise (specifically inspired by the Cruise's "80's Prom Night" party), the verse chords and melody were lifted from a 2004 demo called "You and Me Together", and the verse and bridge lyrics were written in 2015. The song's lyrics appear to match a poem titled "Weird And Cool" from Cuomo's now-defunct Tumblr page.
Demos of "80's Prom Night" were included in the digital compilation Alone XII: The White Year, released in 2020.
Almost saw her heartbeat
80's Prom Night
Another lonely night
