Sober Up

The first time I heard Sober Up by AJR I thought, “This sounds like a Weezer song.” It was so catchy, upbeat, and quirky, with strings accompanying the song’s chorus. A quick google search confirmed that not only was the band influenced by Weezer, but they had collaborated with Weezer’s frontman Rivers Cuomo on Sober Up. AJR had a rough version of the song before reaching out to Coumo to collaborate, but didn’t know how they wanted finish it. Good thing that Coumo agreed to work with them and help polish the song, along with singing the bridge!


  1. Yes! what a great song. I wish I would have heard this when I was first sobering up two years ago, but it’s just as poignant now. Learning how to deal with your feelings sober definitely made me realize how much I was missing.
