Truly, friends, the war is over. The nerds have won. That centuries-long struggle was finally put to rest last night on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, where Weezer frontman Rivers Cuomo appeared on TV in a white spangled Elvis jumpsuit and silly wig and no one gave him a wedgie or anything. They probably even told him he did a good job afterwards. See here for yourself:

Cuomo and his Weezer bandmates were on the show to promote their new record Weezer (The White Album), which comes out today. They performed β€œKing of the World,” which, while not one of the lead tracks off of the album, still made for a rousing live performance, as well as containing a rather delightful lyrical reference to CVS.
