On this day in music history: May 10, 1994 - “Weezer” (aka “The Blue Album”), the debut album by Weezer is released. Produced by Ric Ocasek, it is recorded at Electric Lady Studios in New York City from August - September 1993. Formed in 1992 by lead guitarist and vocalist Rivers Cuomo, drummer Patrick Wilson, bassist Matt Sharp and rhythm guitarist Jason Cropper, Weezer are playing live gigs only months afterward. Continuing to rehearse and write songs, within a year, the band begin drawing major label attention and are signed to Geffen subsidiary DGC Records in 1993. The band are paired with Cars co-founder and lead singer Ric Ocasek who signs on to produce their debut album. During the recording, Jason Cropper quits the band and he is replaced by Brian Bell. Weezer’s unique musical sensibility which combines punk and metal attitude with strong power pop guitar riffs and hooks, are counterbalanced by the band’s own shy and nerdy demeanor. The first single “Undone - The Sweater Song”, is supported with a quirky and innovative low budget video directed by Spike Jonze (“Being John Malkovich”, “Adaptation”), that becomes an immediate hit on MTV. Jonze also directs the video for the follow up single “Buddy Holly” (#2 Modern Rock, #18 Hot 100 Airplay), in which the band are digitally morphed into clips from the classic sitcom “Happy Days”, playing on stage at Arnold’s Drive-In. Using the same green screen techniques employed by Industrial Light & Magic on the film “Forrest Gump”, Weezer’s performance footage is seamlessly blended in with the film clips from the series. Also featuring a cameo appearance by actor Al Molinaro, the video is another huge MTV favorite, winning four MTV VMA awards in 1995 including Best Alternative Video and Breakthrough Video. The album spins off a third and final single with “Say It Ain’t So” (#7 Modern Rock, #51 Hot 100 Airplay). In time, Weezer’s debut album will come to be regarded as one of the best albums of the 90’s. In 2004, it is remastered and reissued as a two disc Deluxe Edition. The first disc features the original ten track album, with disc two containing fourteen tracks, including B-sides, unreleased track, live acoustic recordings and alternate mixes. Originally released on vinyl in very limited quantities in 1994, it is reissued briefly in 2002 by Geffen Records. In 2012, it is released as a 180 gram vinyl LP by Mobile Fidelity Sound Lab, pressed on blue marbled vinyl, and by Back To Black (UK & Europe on standard black vinyl). A hybrid SACD is also issued by the label in 2014. Another vinyl reissue released by Geffen/UMe with Direct Metal Mastering and includes a poster is released in 2016. “Weezer” peaks at number sixteen on the Billboard Top 200, and is certified 3x Platinum in the US by the RIAA.

Weezer - Buddy Holly

What’s with these homies, dissing my girl?
Why do they gotta front?
What did we ever do to these guys…
That made them so violent?
Woo-hoo, but you know I’m yours…
Woo-hoo, and I know you’re mine…
Woo-hoo, and that’s for all time…

Oo-ee-oo I look just like Buddy Holly…
Oh-oh, and you’re Mary Tyler Moore…
I don’t care what they say about us anyway…
I don’t care bout that…

Don’t you ever fear, I’m always near…
I know that you need help….
Your tongue is twisted, your eyes are slit…
You need a guardian…
Woo-hoo, and you know I’m yours…
Woo-hoo, and I know you’re mine…
Woo-hoo, and that’s for all time…

Oo-ee-oo I look just like Buddy Holly…
Oh-oh, and you’re Mary Tyler Moore…
I don’t care what they say about us anyway…
I don’t care bout that…
I don’t care bout that…

Bang, bang a knock on the door…
Another big bang and you’re down on the floor…
Oh no! What do we do?
Don’t look now but I lost my shoe…
I can’t run and I can’t kick…
What’s a matter babe are you feeling sick?
what’s a matter, what’s a matter, what’s a matter you?
What’s a matter babe, are you feeling blue? oh-oh!
And that’s for all time…
And that’s for all time …

Oo-ee-oo I look just like Buddy Holly…
Oh-oh, and you’re Mary Tyler Moore…
I don’t care what they say about us anyway…
I don’t care bout that…
I don’t care bout that…
I don’t care bout that…
