As one of the most popular groups to emerge in the post grunge/alternative rock aftermath. Weezer are an American rock band formed in Los Angeles in 1992, currently consisting of Rivers Cuomo (lead vocals, lead and rhythm guitar), Patrick Wilson (drums), Brian Bell (rhythm and lead guitar, backing vocals, keyboards) and Scott Shriner (bass guitar, backing vocals, keyboards). Weezer have sold 9.2 million albums in the US and over 17 million worldwide. After signing to Geffen Records in 1993, the band released their debut self titled album, also known as The Blue Album, in 1994. Backed by successful music videos for the singles “Buddy Holly”, “Undone – The Sweater Song” and “Say It Ain’t So”, The Blue Album became a triple-platinum success. Weezer’s second album, Pinkerton (1996), featuring a more abrasive sound, was not as successful and initially received mixed reviews, but went on to achieve cult status and critical acclaim years later. Following Pinkerton, bassist Matt Sharp left the band and Weezer went on hiatus. In 2001, they returned with another self titled album, known as The Green Album, with new bassist Mikey Welsh. Promoted by singles “Hash Pipe” and “Island in the Sun”, The Green Album was a commercial success. After the album’s release, Welsh left the band and was replaced by current bassist Scott Shriner. Weezer’s fourth album, Maladroit, was released in May 2002 to mostly positive reviews. Weezer’s fifth album, Make Believe, was released in May 2005. Despite mixed reviews, its single “Beverly Hills” became Weezer’s first single to top the US Modern Rock Tracks chart and the first to reach the top ten on the Billboard Hot 100. In June 2008, Weezer’s third self titled album, known as The Red Album, featuring “TR-808s, synths, Southern rap, and baroque counterpoint”, was released to mixed reviews. Its lead single, “Pork and Beans”, became the band’s third song to top the Modern Rock Tracks charts.
