Top 10 Weezer Everything

{In Order is a feature reserved for days where we can’t meet our promise of deeply-analyzed content every single weekday. In their place, we put a rushed, biased list from one of our authors, which will hopefully evoke rabid and emotional discussion in the comments section.}


Weezer. A band we love to hate, still love to love, who haven’t put out even a relatively good album in over a decade, yet still put enough decent songs on each record that the concept of another good record down the road isn’t as absurd a notion as it should be. For better or worse, they’ve put out a lot of music since their 2001 comeback. Spoilers: you won’t find a lot of it in the first top 10.

  1. Everything about Beverly Hills is absolutely horrible. It sounds like it was knocked out in ten minutes because the band needed one more song. There’s no melody, no chorus, nothing going on musically except some generic guitar and drumming that sounds like someone slapping a cardboard box. And the lyrics are so tossed off it sounds like Rivers stole from his own 7th grade poetry. The entire song is the sound of someone not trying.

  2. i’m personally offended that more songs from Pinkerton aren’t in the top ten list. at least give me “Tired Of Sex” and “Pink Triangle.” and that that Damned Blue Album is always number 1 on Weezer Best Album Lists instead of Pinkerton.
