- A given name, from the German form of Susan.
- A given name, variant of Susanna.
"Susanne" is a song by American rock group Weezer, which originally appeared as a B-side to the 1994 single, "Undone - The Sweater Song". It was later included on the Deluxe Edition of the debut Weezer album, Weezer.
OverviewThe subject of the song, Susanne, was a PA at Geffen when Weezer was first getting its music off the ground. Rivers Cuomo was facing the emotional challenges of breaking into the music business, so she would make baked goods, especially brownies, as pick-me-ups for him, and gave him her spare winter coat to use when he needed a jacket, in addition to having heart-to-heart conversations via telephone with Cuomo, as is detailed in the first verse of the song. The line from the second verse, "Even Izzy, Slash and Axl Rose" was originally written with Kurt Cobain's name but it was edited out (out of respect) after Cobain's death in 1994. Weezer's Brian Bell has claimed it is his favorite of the groups' songs.
