Asher Roth 

Considering that Weezer's blue album was the soundtrack to many a circa-1994 college freshman year (and probably quite a few since then), it seems kind of right that Asher Roth sampled "Say It Ain't So" for the original version of his hit "I Love College." According to Roth, the higher-education regime doesn't seem to have changed in the last 15 years — Pass out at 3/Wake up at 10/Go out to eat then do it again — although beer pong has gotten a lot more complicated. (Apply yourself to the sport now, and you can take the championship title at the World Series of Beer Pong, something any potential employer would be impressed to see on a résumé.) Alas, the original Weezer sample has been replaced with a junky replica on Roth's debut album, the not quite collegiate-sounding Asleep in the Bread Aisle. C'mon, every dorm rat knows that instant ramen, frozen burritos and chocolate Donettes are where it's at.
