Weezer is perhaps the quirkiest band to ever make their way into mainstream rock. Their music has catchy beats that easily get stuck in your head and heavy guitar. Since Weezer's debut album, Weezer (Blue Album), came out in 1994, they have been a bridge that connected geekiness and rock music. Throughout the years, Weezer has received a Grammy Award and multiple VMAs; all awards were related to their breakthrough single "Buddy Holly" and their 2008 hit "Pork and Beans." They remain active to this day, having released two albums in 2019 titled Weezer (Teal Album) and Weezer (Black Album).
Can't Knock The Hustle
Weezer started with a self-titled album, but the egocentric nature of the band has led them to release six of their 13 as self-titled. Self-titled albums are differentiated by their colors, which so far consist of blue, green, red, white, black and teal. 1994's debut of Weezer (Blue Album) and 2008's Weezer (Red Album) remain the fan favorites. They released two back-to-back albums after their conception and then went on a two-year hiatus. Weezer returned from the hiatus by playing a couple of festivals, which seemed to reignite the passion. This resulted in their joining the 2000 cycle of Vans Warped Tour and the release of Weezer (Green Album), which came out the following year. After Weezer (Red Album) became so successful in 2008 and the release of 2009's Raditude, Weezer was featured as part of the line-up for multiple festivals, including Bamboozle, Bonnaroo and Voodoo Experience. Most recently, Weezer released cover album Weezer (Teal Album) in January 2019, and the latest original music arrived in March 2019, titled Weezer (Black Album).

What songs are usually on Weezer's setlist?
While there's some new music, including their newly released covers, the majority of a Weezer setlist is usually old favorites.

"My Name Is Jonas," "Buddy Holly," "Undone (The Sweater Song)," "Hash Pipe," "Island In The Sun," "Pork And Beans," "Beverly Hills" and "Say It Ain't So" almost universally make it onto the setlist, so there's a good chance that your favorite song will make the cut if you love Weezer's greatest hits.
