It's Hard to Believe, but We've Ranked Weezer Songs—Do You Agree?
Weezer fans will agree that almost every release was a hit, but we'd like to argue that some are definitely better than others. Formed in Los Angeles in 1992, the indie rock band has been making cultural waves across the world with their music. Although Weezer's second album, Pinkerton didn't initially get the best reception, it went on to achieve cult status thanks to its loyal fans. More proof that Weezer has been a seemingly unstoppable force in music.
With so many great hits, it seems impossible to rank Weezer's songs. However, it's finally been done! We need the approval of real fans to determine if the ranking is correct. Go ahead and vote on your favorite (and least favorite) Weezer songs now.
You might be surprised to see how many other Weezer fans agree with you!
