Best Weezer SongsWeezer is one of the most important bands to the 90's alternative musical movement. They had many albums that were all different in thier own way.
I think it was really all about meaning when it came to this and island in the sun. They both had good beat, good lyrics, and good timing for the music, but the meaning they put into it defined the winning Say It Ain't So.
Listened to it over & over again (it IS addicting) during some of the sexiest & most wonderful moments in my life. Very little compares in 90's rock history for me... Maybe Wicked Game, but that's not really rock (remember the video? )
Iconic song, one of the best Rock songs of the 90's. Just the rhythm, the beat, the intro, the lyrics, everything is perfect:
Say it ain't so
Your drug is a heartbreaker
Say it ain't so
My love is a lifetaker
BEST EVER! This song is addicting! I love it so much! I hope this song is remembered forever. Island in the Sun is awesome too. If you're a Weezer fan, this is for you.
I'm one of the few people who after hearing this on a car commercial, looked it up because I thought it was a good song. It is, also the video is one of the best music videos to date.
Unforgettable and catchy chorus. The guitar riffs are also outstanding both in the verses and in the choruses.
Buddy Holly, classic and awesome. Best song of Weezer, of course! Should be first, what's more, I'm a fan of Buddy Holly. Legend.
Awesome song! Everybody on Earth know this song. It's their branding song! Everybody know Weezer because this song.
This is the song that got me into Weezer. It is still probably my favorite, everything was put together so well, and I could listen to it forever.
At first this one flew under the radar for me. The after repeated listens of their debut album it's become my favourite. Shame they don't make them like this anymore
So good to chill out to if you just want to mellow out to a tune this is definitely a song you want to listen to.
This song is definitely what made me love Weezer. I honestly can't understand why this isn't number one!
This song is so great that I could continue listening to it on repeat over and over again for days! I love the amazing catchy uplifting tone of the song.
Laugh out loud, Beverly Hills better than THIS!? This song is so relaxing and the lyrics are perfect. It also has a nice riff and breakdown. This is their best song by far!
This song has to be their best song. I think the only reason why Say It Ain't So is number one is because it was on rock band and a lot of non-weezer fans voted for this immediately
Awesome song, way better than the rest of their stuff. Some of it can actually be a little boring at times. But not this song. This is a really fantastic song.
My favorite love song of all time. The cynicism, the bitterness, the self-consciousness.
I absolutely love the bridge and the third verse, but the song overall is flawless. Amazing. This song speaks to me.
My favourite song, not just of Weezer but of all time. So awkward, so quirky, so Weezer! The lyrics are amazing and it's one of those songs that I wish I wrote.
This is a hard choice but I just love the "Green Day" style breakdown. It's disappointing Island In the Sun isn't on here though.
This is my favorite weezer song ever, it has a sort of relaxing intro and a not too fast paced chorus. Perfect song in my opinion.
Greatest song ever written!. I listen to this songs every day and it always makes me happy, I mainly love the bass in the song.
MUCH better than the likes of Beverly Hills! How is this not in the top 3!? Listen to that riff! Also, the lyrics are hilarious!
This is a very creative song with an extremely unique melody. The high notes on the verse are insane.
Heaviest song, but extremely motivating... especially at the gym
This is Their best song. It has every component that is good about Weezer, and a harmonica solo! You play the starting riff to this and all the hoes take off their clothes, And some of the dudes... But that's the price you pay for holding that power.
It's honestly one of Weezer's greatest masterpieces. The sound is amazing and Rivers wrote the song without trying to be someone he's not. He even makes references to the sled he had as a child. It's a great song made by a great band.
Great song. What more could anybody want from Weezer, or and band for that matter? Excellent guitar (of course), absolutely astounding tempo increase towards the end. It's just a fun and energetic song.
The best part about the song is its EXPLOSIVENESS. It really takes advantage of large dynamic shifts and the cut-time section at the end only adds to it.
While I'd like to think that at least one post blue album song could be better than the blue album, all tracks stop here. It's so much better than any of their other tracks it's not even funny. Don't let the 8 minute duration drive you away like it did to me. Only In Dreams is the masterpiece all other Weezer tracks have yet to beat, but some runner ups include;
Tired of Sex
My Name is Jonas
Across the Sea
Undone- the sweater song
The Futurescope Trilogy
Just to name a few (by the way just my opinion, except Only in Dreams, which is a fact).
This site is a good use of experimental hierarchy. But this list is disgusting.. Weezer was on a path, with which has certainly lost it's course. This song was the pinnacle of their glory of creative adolescence. Since this song, Weezer made the most beautiful album in Pinkerton, then abruptly lost whatever deeply routed potential in emotional depiction known to modern artists. Unfortunately, this is something they cannot get back. Whatever power that was in Rivers was squandered after Pinkerton was released, and one day I hope that this band can reconcile with their place in the elite status.
An 8 minute epic of wild emotion, immersive instruments, strong lyrics, and one of the best musical climaxes in the rock genre.
But most importantly, it's the incredibly relatable meaning of the song.
It encompasses everything weezer was about as a band in the prime of their careers. It burst adolescent energy and creates a scenario where you can only win in your dreams.
Only in dreams is at least to me the greatest weezer song ever written.
by the way I didmt mean to write this much.
My number one. In my opinion, one of the best songs of the 90's; Only in Dreams has it all. A perfect bassline. Dreamy acoustic guitar. Fantastic chorus. But above all that, you have the solo. Two guitars spiraling and twisting together, painting beautiful melodic harmonies and climbing to a climax unrivaled in anything they've done since. Perfection.
The reason why Across the Sea is my favorite Weezer song is how it relates to my personal relationships with girls who I love, but they will never know it. But it doesn't just relate to me, it relates to every single person who has ever had a little crush on someone. This song is really sad. Knowing another person far away loves you... and you want to love them back, but you just can't have them for the obvious reason that they are not close to you.
Across the Sea is such a great song from a great album. I still don't understand why Pinkerton was panned by critics... such a great album. I was just rocking out to this song and was wondering what people on the net were saying about it. Needs to be Top 10. It definitely needs to be higher than "Pork and Beans"- What?
Never has a melody captured pure angst better than across the sea. While the lyrics are specific, they are understandable and convey emotion in a unique, awkward, self depracative manner. The "you" in the very beginning always hits me. Best weezer song in my opinion
Being a Weezer fan of great proportions, this song is among my favorites. Rivers seemed to put a lot of anger and sadness into this song and you can really hear it when you play the song.
Just the utter, and shear cry, that Rivers brings, you can just feel the passion and emotion of him, and I'm sure all of us earnestly and endearingly relate too. Someone just wanting to go back... is that too much to ask. So honest and true, we can't. And that's what makes this (for me at least) the greatest Weezer song. Ever. All of Pinkerton in fact is amazing, filled with such honest and passionate, emotional songs. If you can't find it in your mind, or even heart for that matter, then you can never enjoy music. Put simply: you are so god damned closed minded. Best song ever made will always be my favorite album and song. I just wanna go back to "The Good Life."
The intro is so catchy, that guitar riff... Excellent. It's also consistent. One of the best Rock songs of the 90's in my opinion. Should be in the top 5. Much better than "Beverly Hills" laugh out loud.
Best Weezer song so far with great dynamics and tempo changes. I don't think they will ever top this.
How did Beverly Hills (which is composed of TWO whole chords) beat this masterpiece?
This isn't top 10 and Beverly Hills is?! This is the pinnacle of Rivers' lyrics. "I'm dumb, she's a lesbian... We're as good as married in my mind, but married in my mind is no good. " Great chorus, great bridge, it's just a fantastic, catchy song.
This is their best song. It's just, so catchy, so awesome, so compelling, it's such a beautiful song. A great story of a guy liking this girl, and she ends up to be a lesbian. Amazing song. The best song iv'e ever heard in my entire life. Thank you, goodnight
"Workers Are Going Home"
"We were good as married in my mind, but married in my mind's no good. " Great song! This should rank higher!
Brilliantly written and super great in general. It's just and honest true song (like the rest of Pinkerton).
I don't really know how to say this without being awkward. But this is an anthem to me, describes how isolated and alone, I feel safe and no one cares how nerdy or how stupid my ways are. Thank you Rivers.
The lyrics may seem simple but to me they mean a whole lot more. I feel they are expressing the fact that they don't care what anyone else thinks of them. Yes they are nerds, but they love to rock.
Come on, this is an anthem! Should be top 10 no less. In fact the top ten should be the whole blue album.
I think that everyone can relate to this song at some point.
The rhythm of the drums is just fantastic, it gives the song most of its coolness and the guitar does all the rest. I can describe it with just one word... AWESOME!
My favorite Weezer song hands down. Great lyrics, great drums, great sound. I just don't how songs like Pork and Beans, Hash Pipe and My Name Is Jonas are higher than this.
I will vote for it mostly cause it is too far behind for my taste, I mean, it should be tenth at least, but I agree that island in the sun and say it ain't so are better.
The fact that this song is above Tired of Sex, Pork and Beans, Pink Triangle, the Good Life and many other Weezer songs is just disturbing.
Brilliant lyrics and video, this should be at the top of the list! Come on, vote for this!
You might as well not read the rest of this, just trying to get my comment quality all the way up. Okay, done!
The lyrics are hilarious and catchy, especially the awesome chorus. Definitely the best song from the Red Album and one of the best they've ever done! Good video too!
I wish Pork And Beans wasn't 10th, it has a great beat and tune to it! Don't forget to watch the music video!
This song just makes me want to play it over and over again. This should definitely be number one.
This songs is to me one of the best and most underrated weezer songs. The intro is just music to my ears and in my opinion, one of the best guitar work by weezer. Just a fantastic song.
Weezer was one of the first alternative rock scenes I ever discovered, out of all their tracks, this song is on another level. The melody, rhythm, and vocals all make it an immortal piece that of course, should be #1
The guitar riff is just amazing. And the vocal range is crazy. I guess I am the only one who relates to the loneliness...
Incredible Intro. Just love this song. By far my favorite Weezer song and one of my all time favorites. The BEST!
This song is the epitome of awesome. It has a very personal feeling to it, its melody is fantastic and it's so unique and haunting. It's simply amazing. To open the best album of all time (Pinkerton) with this really sets the stage for the rest of the masterpieces on the album.
Tired of Sex is thier best song! Great lyrics & a totally great solo! not "classic" weezer stuff but its powerful & a brilliant opening to thier best album; Pinkerton
You can really feel the pain in his voice as he starts screaming, and the solo is insane.
Best weezer song, great riff, powerful catchy vocals, and a solo that gives you chills.
In my freshmen year of high school, I had no friends except for this one girl. But then she just decided to not talk to me anymore and just left me hanging without any friends. Even though we weren't sexually interested in each other, I feel like this song says everything I felt after she left me. Easily one of their best.
This song just oozes emotion. "I talked for hours to your wallet photograph. " Who can't relate to this? The lyrics are just top notch.
The guitar solo is just great as well. Definitely vote for it because it deserves a way better spot that 22.
The best Weezer Song. I love the lyrics, they are so personal and emotional. And the Song reminds me to a personal situation.
I like the combination of the differnt guitar styles.
The singing is also very good.
Vote for it!
The lyrics are so heartfelt and relatable. And the melodies are so catchy. I don't like choosing favorite songs, but it's between this, In Dreams, and Undone (the sweater song).
This is the best of the silly songs by Weezer. The change in style keeps it interesting all throughout unlike their usually more repetitive, simpler riffs.
I really love this song. It sounds really great and because of all different parts it sounds a bit like Bohemian Raphsody from Queen.
'I am the greatest man that ever lived,
I was born to give and give and give. '
Love the melody, especially the piano section at the beggining.
Best album is Pinkerton, but this is hands down their best song.
Needs to be in the top 10 for sure. The song is catchy and pops, but lyrically is says some very relevant things about the life of a relationship, all the while matching them up with a very solid chorus. It's a hidden gem.
I absolutely love this song. It sounds so realistic. It could be about a real relationship. It's quirky and cute and has an addictive melody that I just love with all my heart.
I will never get tired of listening to this song. I love the lyrics because it tells a story, and the upbeat sound fits the song just right.
I didn't think it would be this difficult to pick my favorite Weezer song, but there are too many good ones. But this one... I just picked this one
This is the best song by far, because it captures every thing they hope to be and the words and phrasing are perfect together and it builds and it sways like no other song before or since.
Most underrated song
This song is immaculate and perfect, with that sweet G riff... its perfectness... especially when played after pink triangle
This needs to be higher! Those key changes in the chorus are amazing.
The solo in this track is perfect.
One of the songs that can give the blue album greats a go for their money... definitely should be ranked higher
I like the personal introspective aspect of this song.
Their best song period
Wait, wait, why this song just like been dumped? Island in the sun and say it ain't so are great, but this song is my favourite at this time! Catchy Intro, Catchy Chorus, Catchy Lyrics, Heavy Guitar! Very Weezer
This song has 2 kind of chorus, and both of them are very enjoyable
Especially when you sing it on journey in the Car!
Catchy and classic Weezer! Should be in the top 5.
No One Else is EXTREMELY underrated. Better than My Name is Jonas, all parts are strong. I love the chorus to this, staying within a few notes, staying simple.
Defiantly should be in the top 5 it's amazing my personal favourite Weezer song EVER,!
The most underrated song of all time!
My favourite Weezer song so amazing!
It may not be traditional Weezer but the lyrics are heartfelt and relatable, and the guitar is soothing and nice.
You can tell Rivers Cuomo definitely wore his heart on his sleeve on this one. Not your a typical Weezer song.
My all-time favourite weezer song. Beautiful.
