Long before they were thanking God for girls, on an island in the sun, while looking like Buddy Holly; Weezer was jamming in the garage.
“In The Garage” is a song from the rock group Weezer that was released in 1994 on their debut album simply called Weezer. The album has since become known as the Blue Album. Rivers Cuomo, the lead singer, describes this garage and what one might do there to unwind without anyone judging you for who you are.
If only everyone’s “thing” could be welcomed and not doused with fear, but with self-respect. This song reminds me of that and encourages me to be myself no matter what others might think or say. I like that members of the X-Men are mentioned. They know what it is like to be rejected for being yourself.
No matter what you do just keep doing your thing. That is what makes our planet a truly remarkable place in this galaxy. We are all unique.
Below you will find the studio version and the acoustic version of “In The Garage.”
