Continuing with our Color War, the next logical step is Red's more festive and well maintained counterpart, Pink.

The Pink team's captain is a mid 90s staple, gone wrong in Weezer. This band had a huge connection with myself and my peers during the single digit grades. In fact I used to go to Staten Island to watch my friend's band play Weezer cover songs in the basement of an Italian Restaurant. Then, the next thing you know, its the 2000's and Weezer is making Beverly Hills bullcrap for the masses. Lets rewind back to the Good Ol' days of 1996, when wearing glasses meant you would never get laid ever and a little album called Pinkerton came out. This song rocks out to the story of a guy who just might be barking up the wrong tree, if you know what I'm saying. I can't help but love the lyric in the middle "Everyone's a little queer, why can't she be a little straight?"

Other members include:
Pink (pop star), The Band (during their Big Pink Era), The Flaming Lips and Pink Floyd.

Song #233: Weezer - Pink Triangle
