Featured song: "Eulogy for a Rock Band" Play on spotify.png

"Eulogy for a Rock Band" is the third track on Everything Will Be Alright in the End. It is one of a handful songs that Rivers Cuomo wrote in the early 2010's alongside Ryen Slegr and Daniel Brummel of Ozma.

Cuomo, when asked about the meaning of the song in an interview for the Wall Street Journal, said that it was about one of Weezer's "fore-fathers," but has avoided revealing exactly who. In an episode of the podcast Post-Pinkerton, host John Carroll observed that Cuomo was known to have listened to the Beach Boys' album That's Why God Made the Radio via Spotify a year prior to EWBAITE's release, an album released nearly fifty years into the band's career, suggesting that the song could be about Brian Wilson.

According to attendees of fan listening parties in 2013 and 2014, the song originally went by the titles "Shining Star" and "The Band We Loved the Most," and featured portions of Kurt Cobain's suicide note in the bridge. The existence of these early titles, among more, were confirmed when several title iterations of "Eulogy" were listed on the riverscuomo.com demo storefront in October of 2020. These demos were eventually released as part of the Weezma Alone compilation.
