The Weezer phenomenon would burst into existence in 1992, a collaboration
between four scrappy pop rock musicians that consisted of guitar player and vocalist Rivers Cuomo, percussionist Patrick Wilson,
Matt Sharp slapping the bass and Brian Bell filling out the group on guitar. The band's sound would catch the eyes and ears
of music execs across New York City, and they soon signed onto Geffen Records to record their debut album, 1994's The Blue
Album that would garner fan acclaim as it spread like wildfire throughout the regional music scene. The album would spawn
the band's first single and one of the most intrinsic pieces of the Weezer discography, "Undone - The Sweater Song", which
would blow up overnight as it invaded radio waves across the country and dominated the MTV network. With the help of legendary
director Spike Jonze, Weezer produced two music videos for "Undone" and "Buddy Holly" that would gain them numerous accolades
that included four MTV VMAs and two Billboard music video awards.
Now firmly entrenched in the mainstream, Weezer returned
to the writing studio and began to further develop their sound, with Cuomo's experiences of fame and his studies at Harvard
coloring his songwriting and musical focus. After their sophomore release, the band would take a break and venture to different
corners of the United States, with Cuomo in particular working on various side projects. The band would go through a tumultuous
stage throughout the end of the 90s, with frontman Cuomo experiencing a prolonged battle with depression. The band would be
shocked out of their slump with a show at the Fuji Rock Festival just outside of Tokyo, Japan, that would push the band onto
the road again and eventually kickstart their productivity, with the band constantly on the road and putting out new material
for the rest of the decade.
Now with nine full length releases and a constant tour schedule, Weezer remains one of the
paramount musicians in the alternative and pop rock music scenes, with a sound that does not shy from experimentation or risk
taking. With over twenty years on the performance scene, Weezer is showing no signs of slowing down as they continue to put
out hit album after hit album, keeping up a near constant tour schedule that takes their decade spanning discography to exciting
concert destinations the world over.
Perhaps the most fundamental piece of Weezer's discography
is their 1996 sophomore release, titled Pinkerton. The album performed poorly at first, but would eventually be accepted as
fundamental to the Weezer sound and one of their best albums to date. Despite poor performance, the album still charted the
#19 position on the Billboard 200 and received a gold certification. The album spawned three major singles that remain intrinsic
to the Weezer music catalogue, including "El Scorcho", "The Good Life", and "Pink Triangle".
Rivers Cuomo has always been a prolific song writer, and has produced solo work on top of his impressive discography with
Weezer. He has since released four full length albums original work. Other band members have ventured off on their own as
well, including Patrick Wilson's project The Special Goodness.
