Weezer's "Buddy Holly" video

Weezer

Midi version of the "Buddy Holly" song

Weezer is a group of four members that was formed in Los Angeles in 1992. In the 1995 video, "Buddy Holly" directed by Spike Jonze, vintage Happy Days footage was intercut with shots of Weezer performing on the original Arnold's Drive-In set. Arguably one of the most popular clips of 1995, it scored four MTV Video Music Awards, including Breakthrough Video and Best Alternative Music Video, and two Billboard Music Video Awards, among them Alternative/Modern Rock Clip of the Year. It reached no. 2 on "Billboards Modern Rock Track Chart".

The introduction of the video was delivered by Happy Days cast member Al Molinaro (Al Delvecchio), and seizing the opportunity to ad lib, Al plugged his hometown--and his words "...from Kenosha, Wisconsin: Weezer!" ended up in heavy rotation on MTV for weeks during 1995.

The video featured footage from episode #53 (They Call It Potsie Love) as well as several other episodes. There is a scene where Joanie is peeking out from behind the railing in the back of Arnold's in the video.

    Lyrics to the the song:

    What's with these homies dissin' my girl
    Why do they gotta front
    What did we ever do to these guys
    That made them so violent

    Woo-hoo, but you know I'm yours
    Woo-hoo, and I know you're mine
    Woo-hoo, and that's for all time
    Woo-ee-oo I look just like Buddy Holly
    Oh-oh, and you're Mary Tyler Moore
    I don't care what they say about us anyway
    I don't care 'bout that

    Don't you ever fear, I'm always near
    I know that you need help
    Your tongue is twisted, your eyes are slit
    You need a guardian

    Chorus

    Bang! Bang a knock on the door
    Another big bang and you're down on the floor
    Oh no! What do we do
    Don't look now but I lost my shoe
    I can't run and I can't kick
    What's a matter babe are you feelin' sick
    What's a matter, what's a matter, what's a matter you?
    What's a matter babe, are you feelin' blue? Oh-oh!
    And that's for all time

    Chorus
