Weezer are one of those bands who have been a mainstay in the industry for over two decades, and with nine albums under their belts — including their latest, ‘Everything Will Be Alright In the End,’ — they’ve amassed a huge catalog of awesome songs.

With so many tracks created throughout their career, it’s fun to wonder if the members have favorites. Well, we now know Rivers Cuomo does — and he’s shared his pick with the entire social media universe.

“Speaking for myself, it has to be ‘The Futurescope Trilogy’ from ‘Everything Will Be Alright In the End’ if I could sneak that all in as one song,” Cuomo said in a video posted on the band’s Facebook page. “Seven-and-a-half-minutes of guitar-gasm.”

He explained that they have been playing the new album from beginning to end on their most recent tour. And although there are hardly any lyrics, the Weezer frontman admitted that he has an out-of-body experience from playing it.

“I’ve never felt as high as I do when we play ‘The Futurescope Trilogy,’ Cuomo explained. “I know there’s not a lot of singing, but there is so much emotion coming out of me through the guitar. I feel like I’ve completely left my body, that I’m out of my mind. The feeling that I aspire to in music, and maybe I feel like all artists aspire to.”

He ends the video a bit awkwardly but with a smile as he plays the track on his phone for all of us to hear. You can check out the full tune below:
