In the Garage is an alternative rock song by Weezer. It was recorded in the summer of 1993 and released as track 8 on the album Weezer (Blue Album) on 1994-05-10. The song was written, composed, and sung by Rivers Cuomo. The song is pretty basic consisting of only two verses and a single chorus repeated four times.

The song is about being in solitude with your thoughts and hobbies while not having to worry about being judged or ridiculed by outsiders. During my geeky introverted childhood, I fell in love with this song as I not only related to the desire to be left alone, but also shared an appreciation with some of the hobbies listed including Dungeons and Dragons and the X-Men, although I've never been a big fan of Kiss, and while I've always wanted to have musical talent, I do not.

In particular, I enjoy the harmonica opening that is repeated later on electric guitar, and the lyric, "I write these stupid words, and I love every one!" as well as the first sentence of the chorus, "In the garage, I feel safe, no one cares about my ways."

Lyrics

I've got a Dungeon Master's Guide
I've got a 12-sided die
I've got Kitty Pryde
and Nightcrawler too
Waiting there for me
Yes I do, I do
I've got posters on the wall 
My favorite rock group Kiss
I've got Ace Frehley
I've got Peter Criss
Waiting there for me
Yes I do, I do

In the garage, I feel safe
No one cares about my ways
In the garage where I belong
No one hears me sing this song
In the garage

I've got an electric guitar
I play my stupid songs
I write these stupid words
And I love every one
Waiting there for me
Yes I do, I do

In the garage, I feel safe
No one cares about my ways
In the garage where I belong
No one hears me sing this song
In the garage, in the garage, yah!

In the garage, I feel safe
No one cares about my ways
In the garage where I belong
No one hears me sing this song

In the garage, I feel safe
No one laughs about my ways
In the garage where I belong
No one hears me
No one hears me
No one hears me
No one hears me
No one hears me sing this song
