Weezer is an American alternative rock band. Theyformed in 1992 in Los Angeles, California, and have gonethrough varying degrees of success over their 24-yearcareer (from 1992 – 2016). They have released 10 studiorecords, and they have sold over17millionrecordsworldwide. They have long been citedas innovators and helped to popularize alternative rockin 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 toproducer Ric Ocasek (of The Cars fame), and a series ofinnovative videos that received constant rotation onMTV, the Blue Album hailed 3 hit singles, “Undone – TheSweater Song”, “Buddy Holly”, and “Say it Ain't So.” It hasgone on to sell over 3 million copies, and remains theirmost successful album. They quickly returned in 1996with Pinkerton,which abandoned the power-pop soundof their first album, with darker tones and more personallyrics. Its release was hindered by a lawsuit thatprevented their label from advertising it properly, and asa result, it was a critical and commercial failure uponrelease. However, Pinkerton soon developed a cultfollowing and critical acclaim, with many fans calling ittheir best work. They soon went on hiatus after the initialfailure of Pinkerton and after bassist Matt Sharp left theband 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 itssingles “Hash Pipe” and “Island in the Sun". The nextyear, they released Maladroit, which saw the bandexperimenting more with the same structure, with theresult garnering mixed reactions. In 2005, Weezerreleased Make Believe, which also received mixedreviews. Lead single “Beverly Hills” reached the top 10 ofthe Billboard Hot 100 and also earned the band its firstGrammy nomination. The next single, however, “PerfectSituation”, boasted a stay at #1 for 4 weeks on theModern Rock charts. In 2008, they released their thirdself-titled album, the Red Album, which was felt to betheir most experimental to date and featured the hit“Pork and Beans". This was quickly followed by twomore studio efforts that were received poorly by fans,2009's Raditude (which featured another hit single in “(IfYou’re Wondering If I Want You To) I Want You To”) andHurley, which attempted a return to Weezer's power poproots. After another four year hiatus, the band released theirninth studio album Everything With Be Alright In The End,with many fans claiming at the time that it was the bestalbum that the band released since the height of theircritical popularity in the mid-nineties. In 2016, theyreleased their newest self titled album, the White Album,which has received even greater critical and fan praisethan their previous album, with songs such as "ThankGod for Girls" and "Do You Wanna Get High?". « hide
