After giving Spotify a Weezer makeover, Rivers Cuomo and company have now turned their attention to Wordle.

The “Buddy Holly” rockers have launched Weezle, their own version of the popular word game that’s been sweeping the internet over the past few months. Just like with the original Wordle, Weezle gives you six chances to guess a five-letter word, though this version, of course, is all Weezer-themed.

“If you like Wordle and Weezer, you’ll probably like Weezle,” Cuomo says.

If that describes someone like you, you can try out the first Weezle now at Weezle.web.app. If you need a hint — spoiler alert — try looking at the track list for Weezer’s Blue Album.

As for that Weezer version of Spotify, that would be Weezify. Cuomo launched Weezify in January amid artists including Neil Young and Joni Mitchell removing their music from the streaming platform in protest of its continued hosting of Joe Rogan‘s podcast The Joe Rogan Experience, which has been criticized for spreading misinformation regarding the COVID-19 pandemic and vaccines.

Meanwhile, Weezer has been working on new music, and plans to release four albums this year as part of the band’s SZNS project.
