Weezer reveals Nirvana influence

From MTV: "Weezer are returning with a new album next month and in one track have revealed how Nirvana inspired them to form the band. On Heart Songs the group- fronted by Rivers Cuomo- list their influences and mention legends Nirvana.

The lyrics run: 'Back in 1991 I wasn’t having any fun, Until my roommate said C'mon and put a brand new record on, It had a baby on it, he was naked on it, And then I heard the chords that broke the chains I had upon me.'

The reference to a naked baby is clearly about Nirvana's classic album Nevermind."

Back in 1998, Weezer played an entire show of Nirvana covers under the name "Goat Punishment".
