Weezer - "Automatic"

One of Weezer's best songs of the last 10 years wasn't written by frontman Rivers Cuomo. "Automatic," off the third self-titled Weezer disc -- it's also know as The Red Album -- comes from longtime drummer Patrick Wilson, who also contributed lead vocals. Never a hit, never a single, "Automatic" would have completely fallen through the cracks if not for a remixed version showing up in the video game Gran Turismo 5 Prologue. I prefer the original.
