Five weeks after forming, they had their first gig, opening for Dogstar (Keanu Reeves's band) at Raji's Bar and Ribshack on Hollywood Boulevard. Weezer played clubs and other small venues around L.A. The band eventually attracted attention from major-label A&R reps looking for alternative rock bands.

The Blue Album (1993-94)

The self-titled debut, Weezer, commonly referred to as the Blue Album because of the blue background in the cover (and also as a means not to mistake this album for their other eponymous release, dated of 2001), was released May 10, 1994. The album was produced by former Cars frontman Ric Ocasek and recorded at Electric Lady Studios in New York City.[4] During the recording of the Blue Album, Jason Cropper left the band and was replaced by Brian Bell, a then-bassist for the band, Carnival Art.

Jonze also directed the band's second video, "Buddy Holly."[5] The video featured footage from the television sitcom Happy Days, spliced with the band performing in a remade "Arnold's Diner," a familiar setting from the series.[8] The video achieved heavy rotation on MTV[9] and went on to win Jonze and the band four MTV Video Music Awards, including Breakthrough Video and Best Alternative Music Video, and two Billboard Music Video Awards.[10] The success of the video arguably pushed the band into the mainstream spotlight.

Songs from the Black Hole (1995)

In late December 1994, Weezer took a break from touring for the Christmas holidays.[15] Cuomo traveled back east to his home state of Connecticut, and using an eight-track recorder, he began piecing together demo material for Weezer's next album. Cuomo's original concept for Weezer's second album was to be a space-themed rock opera, Songs from the Black Hole.[16] 1994 was a common year starting on Saturday of the Gregorian calendar, and was designated the International year of the Family. ... Songs from the Black Hole is an unreleased, unfinished Weezer album. ...


The album was intended to feature songs that flowed together seamlessly and end with a special coda that briefly revisited the major musical elements of the piece.[15] The band began demoing and working on Cuomo's concept through intermittent recording sessions in the spring and summer of 1995.[17] Year 1995 (MCMXCV) was a common year starting on Sunday (link will display full 1995 Gregorian calendar). ...


Some songs such as "Tired of Sex" and "Why Bother?" were on Songs From The Black Hole and later released on Pinkerton. Some demos of unreleased songs, such as "Longtime Sunshine" can be found on various fansites or on compilations or EPs. several still remain unreleased to the public.


Pinkerton (1996-97)

Ultimately, the Songs from the Black Hole album concept was dropped.[17] The album would instead feature songs composed before their first album (which had briefly been incorporated into the space-opera) as well as some new ones written while Cuomo was at Harvard.[16]


Weezer's second album, Pinkerton, was released on 24 September 1996.[18] Due to initial weak sales (it peaked at #19 in the U.S.),[19] the album was, at first, viewed as a commercial failure,[20] especially when viewed in light of the multi-platinum success of their debut album. The album failed to gain traction in the mainstream music world, perhaps due to a darker, more abrasive sound on the album.[18] Pinkerton was labeled "one of the worst albums of 1996" by a Rolling Stone Magazine reader poll.[21] However, word-of-mouth kept the trickle of sales going, and the album eventually achieved a cult status. As if to validate this, in 2004, Rolling Stone changed their rating to 5 stars and inducted Pinkerton into the Rolling Stone Hall Of Fame.[22] A large contingent of critics and fans currently view Pinkerton as Cuomo's artistic peak, despite the album being outsold by three of the five albums.

Three singles were taken from the album: "El Scorcho", "The Good Life", and "Pink Triangle". A music video was released for "El Scorcho", directed by Mark Romanek,[23] who later removed his directing credit from the final version due to creative disagreements with the band (most notably Cuomo, who actually edited the final version himself).[24] A video for "The Good Life", directed by the husband-wife team of Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris, was also released. Of note are the differences in behavior of each band member in the videos. The videos show the divisive feelings growing in the band that would lead to the band's hiatus.

The title of the album comes from the character Lieutenant Pinkerton in Giacomo Puccini's opera Madame Butterfly.[16] The entire album is heavily influenced by the opera's story line. Madame Butterfly is mentioned under her real name, Cio-Cio San, in "El Scorcho." The song, "Butterfly", is written from Pinkerton's point of view at the end of the opera. Giacomo Antonio Domenico Michele Secondo Maria Puccini (December 22, 1858 – November 29, 1924) was an Italian composer whose operas, including La bohème, Tosca, and Madama Butterfly, are among the most frequently performed in the standard repertoire. ... For other uses, see Opera (disambiguation). ... Madama Butterfly (or sometimes Madame Butterfly in English) is an opera in three acts by Giacomo Puccini, set in Japan. ...


The album's title sparked a legal challenge. Pinkerton Securities of Encino, Calif., filed a temporary injunction against the band and its Geffen record label for copyright infringement two days before the album was to be released on 24 September 1996.[25] A judge ruled against the security company, and the album was finally released.[26] This injunction caused Geffen to hold back some of the initial advertising and promotion for the album, possibly contributing to the album's initial slow sales.

On hiatus (1997-2000)

Weezer completed their touring for Pinkerton in the summer of 1997. The members of the band took a break, with drummer Patrick Wilson returning to his home in Portland, Oregon to work on his side project, The Special Goodness; Matt Sharp left to complete the follow-up album for his group The Rentals; and Brian Bell went to work on his group, Space Twins.

Rivers Cuomo returned to Boston, Massachusetts, but took a break from Harvard to focus on songwriting. Cuomo gathered together Boston-area musicians and rehearsed unreleased material, including possible new songs for the next Weezer album. The group, referred to by fans as the Rivers Cuomo Band, had several different lineups and played several shows at local clubs, including their first show at T.T. the Bear's on 8 October 1997. Future Weezer bassist Mikey Welsh was a constant of the group's evolving lineups. Pat Wilson eventually flew to Boston to sit in on drums. The Boston songs were later abandoned and not used on the next Weezer album, but live recordings of the Boston shows are openly traded on the internet.

Pat Wilson and Brian Bell joined Cuomo in L.A. to start work on the next album. Matt Sharp did not rejoin the band and officially left the group in April 1998. The group decided on Mikey Welsh as Sharp's replacement. Weezer continued rehearsal and cut demos until the fall of 1998. Frustration and creative disagreements led to a decline in rehearsals, and in late fall of 1998, drummer Pat Wilson left for his home in Portland pending renewed productivity from Cuomo. Rivers Cuomo went into a period of admitted depression, painting the walls of his home black and putting "fiberglass insulation all over the windows and then black sheets of fiberglass so that no light could get through." 1998 is a common year starting on Thursday of the Gregorian calendar, and was designated the International Year of the Ocean. ...

The band would not reunite until April of 2000, when the Fuji Festival in Japan offered Weezer a high-paying gig to play in August 2000. The festival served as a catalyst for Weezer's productivity, and from April to May 2000, the band rehearsed and demoed new songs in Los Angeles. The band returned to live shows in June 2000, but without the Weezer name. Instead the shows featured the group's first use of the pseudonym, Goat Punishment, so they could play to only longtime fans who would recognize the name.


On 23 June 2000, the band, now back under the Weezer name, joined the Warped Tour for eight planned dates.

Back on stage (2000)

In the summer of 2000, Weezer (now consisting of Rivers Cuomo, Mikey Welsh, Pat Wilson, and Brian Bell) went on tour (including dates on the popular Vans Warped Tour). Weezer's setlist consisted of 14 new songs that fans have labeled the Summer Songs of 2000 (commonly abbreviated, SS2K). When 13 of these songs did not appear on Weezer's next album, fans of the songs started a petition demanding the release of studio versions. Eventually, MP3s of live recordings of the songs were made available on the band's official website for download. Three SS2K songs, "Hash Pipe", "Dope Nose," and "Slob," have appeared on studio albums ("Hash Pipe" on the Green Album and "Dope Nose" and "Slob" appearing on Maladroit).

The Green Album (2001)

Eventually, the band went back into the studio to produce a third album. They chose the title, Weezer (2001), to repeat the self-titled name of their first release. This album quickly became known as The Green Album due to its distinctive bright green coloring. Shortly after the release of The Green Album, Weezer went on another American tour. They attracted a new generation of fans thanks to heavy MTV rotation for the videos of their hit singles, "Hash Pipe" and "Island in the Sun."

The video for "Hash Pipe", directed by Marcos Siega featured sumo wrestlers and was nominated for Best Rock Video at the 2001 MTV Video Music Awards. The drug-centric title and chorus of the song led to a "censored" version, retitled "Half Pipe", to be released to some US radio/television outlets. Two videos were recorded for "Island in the Sun." Marcos Siega directed the first, which focused on a Mexican wedding, and Spike Jonze directed the second, which involved Weezer with animals in a wildlife reserve.

As reported on 16 August 2001, by MTV, bassist Mikey Welsh was checked into a psychiatric hospital. His whereabouts were previously unknown, as he mysteriously went missing before the filming of the second video for "Island in the Sun". Weezer was prompted to find a temporary replacement for Welsh.

Maladroit (2002)

The band took an experimental approach for the recording process by allowing fans to download the demos from their official website in return for feedback. After the release of the album, the band subsequently stated that the process was somewhat of a failure, as the fans did not supply them with cohesive, constructive advice. Cuomo eventually delegated song selection for the album to their original A&R rep, Todd Sullivan, stating the Weezer fans chose the "wackest songs." Only the song "Slob" was included on the album due to general fan advice.


In early 2002, before the release of the fourth album, Cuomo sent out a mixed version of the song, "Dope Nose", to select radio stations, without the knowledge or consent of their record label Interscope. The song began to receive airplay. The record label, citing marketing concerns for the upcoming album, had Cuomo send out a letter to radio stations requesting the song be pulled until an official, sanctioned single was released. Interscope also briefly shutdown Weezer's audio/video download webpage, removing all the MP3 demos. Online Weezer fans staged a brief protest with several websites proclaiming "Free Maladroit." Also see: 2002 (number). ...


In April 2002, former bassist Matt Sharp sued the band, alleging, among several accusations, he was owed money for cowriting several Weezer songs.

The fourth album, Maladroit, was released on 14 May 2002, only one year after its predecessor. The album served as a harder-edged version of their trademark catchy pop-influenced music.

Two singles were released from the album. The "Dope Nose" music video featured an obscure Japanese motorcycle gang, and was put into regular rotation.

A video was also filmed for "Slob" and can be seen on the Enhanced track of the CD.


As soon as Maladroit had wrapped up, the band immediately began work on their fifth album, recording numerous demos between tours (often recording as many as 24 songs in a day). These songs were eventually scrapped, and Weezer took a break after the release of two albums in quick succession. During this break, Bell and Wilson released LPs from their respective Space Twins and The Special Goodness side-projects. The Space Twins were founded in 1993 by Weezer guitarist Brian Bell with Susan Fox, his girlfriend at the time. ... The Special Goodness is the side project of Weezer’s drummer Patrick Wilson. ...

Make Believe (2003-06)

From December 2003 to the fall of 2004, the members of Weezer recorded a large amount of material intended for a new album to be released in the spring of 2005 with producer Rick Rubin. The band's early recording efforts became available to the public through the band's website.

Despite commercial success, Make Believe generally got a mixed reception from critics, receiving an average score of 52 on review collator Metacritic[28]. Although some reviews, such as AMGs, compared it favourably to Pinkerton[29], others, among them Pitchfork Media's score of 0.4 out of 10, panned the album as predictable and lyrically poor.

It became the first Weezer song to hit #1 on the Billboard Modern Rock chart. "Beverly Hills" was nominated for Best Rock Song at the 48th Annual Grammy Awards, the first ever Grammy nomination for the band. The video was also nominated for Best Rock Video at the 2005 MTV Video Music Awards.

The band has announced the possible release of a live DVD comprised of footage from the 2005 Japan tour. It will consist of a 2-day, 7-camera shoot of the shows in Japan, plus material that will be drawn from various behind-the-scenes footage. The DVD was announced in late 2005, but in a recent update on the band's website, Karl Koch noted it was "apparently edited, but has been put on hold for now."[31]


Looks like the albumsix.com site was a hoax conconcted by some Weezer fans, but accepted as a legitimate news source by websites like Billboard and Rolling Stone.


The record has not been titled Tout Ensemble as previously reported, and Rivers adds:


"Please note that Weezer and Geffen Records have no affiliation with www.albumsix.com. The new Weezer record is not called "Tout Ensemble" and there is no official release date yet for the album. Remember, when its on Weezer.com, its for sure. (Though I will say, "well played", to the authors of that site.)"



The record remains set for a Spring 2008 release, according to Punknews.org report.


Meanwhile Rivers Cuomo is releasing a Geffen album called “Alone: The Home Recordings of Rivers Cuomo” the end of the year.


Due December 18, the set includes “my favorite home demos from ‘92 to ‘07 featuring a lot of never heard before songs, a few covers, a few songs from my unfinished rock musical ‘Songs From The Black Hole‘ and my original demo for ‘Buddy Holly,’” Cuomo says.

It is worth mentioning that Weezer are frequently acknowledged as a big influence on the emo genre,[51][52][33] with some even going as far as to classify Weezer themselves as an actual emo band (much to the dismay of hardcore Weezer fans and enthusiasts of the "old school emo" style).[53] Many claim that Cuomo's deeply personal and confessional lyrics on the Pinkerton album, set to a backdrop of aggressive guitars and loud, crunchy powerchords helped create a sub-genre known as "emo-pop". This evidence was only furthered by the countless emo bands citing Pinkerton as an influence on their music, as well as Weezer's tours with groups such as Dashboard Confessional, The Get Up Kids, Saves The Day, and Jimmy Eat World after their Green Album comeback.[54]Although the band have stated in many interviews that they do not know exactly what "emo" entails,[55] the official Weezer MySpace page lists "Emo" as one of the band's genres. Look up emo in Wiktionary, the free dictionary. ...


Weezer themselves have listed several influences, among them KISS (with direct references in the song, "In The Garage"), Nirvana (who was their labelmate for a very brief time before Kurt Cobain's death), and the Pixies (especially early on in their career). Early Weezer demos, such as "Paperface", have very obvious ties musically to the Pixies and Nirvana. Also, the song, "Susanne" originally read, "Even Kurt Cobain...", instead of "Even Izzy, Slash...", changed after Cobain's death. As a side project, Weezer also used to play Nirvana covers under the stage moniker "Goat Punishment". In 1998, Weezer covered "Velouria" by the Pixies for a Pixies tribute album, and in 2005 briefly got to tour with their idols for a few dates. Green Day has also been said to be an influence (there is a direct lyric about Green Day in the song, "El Scorcho"), and it has been acknowledged that the two bands are friends with one another and enjoy each other's music.

Weezer Fans

Sites featuring massive amounts of bootlegs from concerts,[56] websites about the band's alter-ego Goat Punishment,[57] bizarre Weezer fan fiction[58] and even a graveyard for fallen fan sites.[59] Many fan sites are devoted to compiling the hundreds of unreleased recordings, which span from pre-Weezer projects up to the early demos and live tour recordings for Make Believe. Numerous Weezer message boards exist with large user bases. In late 2001 and early 2002, Rivers Cuomo himself frequently conversed with fans through email, messageboards and AIM. Maladroit had strong input from the Weezer fanboards including the suggestion for the name and the addition of "Slob." In the "Slob" video, a brief clip of Rivers' laptop displays a message expressing the frustration that was experienced between him and the fans from disagreements over Maladroit's direction. [60].

One notable Weezer fan tradition is the "flying W" hand symbol, which is frequently seen at live shows.[1] The hand symbol has been used for background decoration during live show, and the band now sells an official t-shirt with the symbol on it.[2] The Van Halen-inspired "=w=" symbol (Van Halen's logo is a flying =VH=), which the band frequently plays in front of,[3] is also worn and recreated in interesting ways by their fans. This article is about the band Van Halen. ...
