Weezer, formed in Los Angeles in the early, alternative-era '90s, became a premier guitar-rock/pop band with the release of their self-titled debut in 1994. A number of fun, catchy songs from the album—"Undone (The Sweater Song)," "Say It Ain't So," "Buddy Holly"—became huge successes among alternative rock listeners, receiving substantial radio play and appearing as highly inventive and entertaining videos on MTV. In 1996, after releasing Pinkerton, an album which revealed an even more accomplished songwriting ability from the band, Weezer remained silent for a few years before reestablishing themselves as an important rock band in the new millennium with 2001's Weezer (Green Album). Other releases include 2002's Maladroit and Make Believe in 2005.
