In the third episode, Tired of Weezer conquers Weezer's second self-titled album commonly known as The Green Album. Layne and Spenser try to understand the mystery of "Crab," the Mary Kate and Ashley movie comeback, bassist Scott Shriner vs. Mikey Welsh, and then Layne listens to Cold's "Stupid Girl," a song Rivers Cuomo wrote for the band. It's a hoot and a little bit longer than the actual Green album. Enjoy.
