Weezer's Rivers Cuomo has revealed that he can see himself being in the band for another 20 years.

The frontman admitted that although they were recently offered $10million to split the group up, he can see playing in the band till he's 60.

"There's a cut-off point, maybe 60," Cuomo told Nola.com. "Assuming the audience still wants us to do this, I can see myself doing this for another 20 years or so. Then somebody's got to pull me off the stage."

Despite the possibility of another two decades of Weezer, Cuomo explained that the group could continue for even longer.

"It's so hard to leave this relationship once you're in it," he said. "Now it's easy for me to say, 'I should retire by the time I'm 60'. But when I'm 59, I'll be thinking, 'No! I don't want this to end!'"

As previously reported, Weezer have followed up the release of their eighth studio album, 'Hurley', with a rarities collection called 'Death To False Metal', which was released yesterday (November 1).
