Rivers Cuomo, Patrick Wilson, Matt Sharp and Jason Cropper had their first practice on Valentine’s Day of 1992, and shortly after closed a gig for Keanu Reeves’ Dogstar. They signed with Geffen Records in June of 1993 and recorded their debut album with Cars founder Rick Ocasek at Electric Lady Studios. Weezer’s first album - also called The Blue Album - featured Undone - The Sweater Song, Say It Aint’ So and Buddy Holly. The videos for these songs were huge hits, and Weezer got launched. Weezer are proof positive that killer singles and great videos can take a band to infinity and beyond: Hash Pipe, Island in the Sun, Beverly Hills and Pork and Beans are the songs everyone knows by heart and sight and propelled Weezer to millions of copies sold and a much longer career than anyone expected.
