Weezer is an American alternative rock band. They formed in 1992 in Los Angeles, California, and have gone through varying degrees of success over their 24-year career (from 1992 – 2016). They have released 10 studio records, and they have sold over 17millionrecordsworldwide. They have long been cited as innovators and helped to popularize alternative rock in the 90s.

They released their eponymous first album, dubbed the “Blue Album”, to avoid confusion with their 2001, 2008, and 2016 self-titled releases. Thanks in large part to producer Ric Ocasek (of The Cars fame), and a series of innovative videos that received constant rotation on MTV, the Blue Album hailed 3 hit singles, “Undone – The Sweater Song”, “Buddy Holly”, and “Say it Ain't So.” It has gone on to sell over 3 million copies, and remains their most successful album. They quickly returned in 1996 with Pinkerton,which abandoned the power-pop sound of their first album, with darker tones and more personal lyrics. Its release was hindered by a lawsuit that prevented their label from advertising it properly, and as a result, it was a critical and commercial failure upon release. However, Pinkerton soon developed a cult following and critical acclaim, with many fans calling it their best work. They soon went on hiatus after the initial failure of Pinkerton and after bassist Matt Sharp left the band to focus more on his group, the Rentals.

In 2001, they returned with their second self-titled record, the Green Album. It was another major hit with its singles “Hash Pipe” and “Island in the Sun". The next year, they released Maladroit, which saw the band experimenting more with the same structure, with the result garnering mixed reactions. In 2005, Weezer released Make Believe, which also received mixed reviews. Lead single “Beverly Hills” reached the top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100 and also earned the band its first Grammy nomination. The next single, however, “Perfect Situation”, boasted a stay at #1 for 4 weeks on the Modern Rock charts. In 2008, they released their third self-titled album, the Red Album, which was felt to be their most experimental to date and featured the hit “Pork and Beans". This was quickly followed by two more studio efforts that were received poorly by fans, 2009's Raditude (which featured another hit single in “(If You’re Wondering If I Want You To) I Want You To”) and Hurley, which attempted a return to Weezer's power pop roots.

After another four year hiatus, the band released their ninth studio album Everything With Be Alright In The End, with many fans claiming at the time that it was the best album that the band released since the height of their critical popularity in the mid-nineties. In 2016, they released their newest self titled album, the White Album, which has received even greater critical and fan praise than their previous album, with songs such as "Thank God for Girls" and "Do You Wanna Get High?". « hide
