Weezer released it return to form album Everything Will Be Alright in the End yesterday (Oct. 8), and the "Back to the Shack" band took to Jimmy Kimmel Live! to celebrate. At Kimmel's open air stage. Rivers Cuomo and co. took on its new album's opening track "Ain't Got Nobody" in front of a massive, enthusiastic crowd.
And totally killed it.
Cuomo was characteristically nonchalant during the "Ain't Got Nobody" performance, swaying back in forth to the beat in little movements and oftentimes looking quite bored. (Though, given, that's his thing.) The band as a whole, however, was chock full of energy, looking like the renewed form of itself that was previously promised with the arrival of Everything Will Be Alright in the End.
Cuomo finally came to life during the song's guitar solo, and he and guitarist Brian Bell rocked it out on the double instrumental break, with Bell gritting his teeth and truly feeling the raw power of the alternative rock.

"Ain't Got Nobody" is the first track on Weezer's new album Everything Will Be Alright in the End. The record, which was released on Tuesday, Oct. 7, is largely heralded as a return to form for the alt-rock band, whose previous attempts at pop music (Hurley, Raditude) were unsuccessful with both fans and critics.
