I’ve been channeling 16yo-me today and I hope you guys can appreciate it as much as I’ve been.
Weezer dropped their self-titled debut album (The Blue Album) in 1994, and it included such hits as “The Sweater Song,” “Say It Ain’t So,” and “Buddy Holly” (which was actually released on Buddy Holly’s 58th birthday). Influenced by powerhouse bands like Nirvana, Oasis, and the Pixies, these guys can stand on their own and make their fans fall in love with them with each single.
Guitar riffs and drum beats aside, Weezer melds together an American classical rock with old-school British indie rock, producing some of the most memorable sounds — I mean listen to that instrumental jam in the last minute of the song. Their pop geek-punk sky-rocketed the album in its stature, making it "one of the most important debut albums of the [the 1990s]" and giving rise to Weezer’s status as one of the iconic 90s bands. Enjoy y’all.
