Billy Talent Premiere New Song “End Of Me” Featuring Weezer’s Rivers Cuomo

Billy Talent have premiered a new song titled “End Of Me.” This track features Weezer’s Rivers Cuomo and it will appear on the band’s new album “Crisis Of Faith,” which will be released on January 21. The group commented:

“This is a full-circle moment for us. We’ve admired and have been fans of Weezer since the Blue Album until now. Before we had a title, this song was originally called ‘Hendrix+Weezer’, so it only felt right to ask Rivers to sing on it. The song encompasses the essence of ’90s alt rock, which was a hugely impactful and influential time for our band. We’re proud of the song and very happy to have Rivers be a part of it.”

Weezer’s Rivers Cuomo Says He Offered “Hash Pipe” To Ozzy Osbourne In 2000

In an alternate universe, Weezer’s “Hash Pipe” could have ended up being an Ozzy Osbourne song. During a recent interview with Guitar World, Weezer’s Rivers Cuomo revealed that he actually offered Osbourne the track back in 2000, but he ultimately rejected it:

“Once, I think it was in 2000, he asked if I had any songs for him, and I just happened to have written ‘Hash Pipe.’ I sent it to him, but he didn’t end up using it. In another reality, it might be interesting to hear him singing that song.”
