Best Weezer Songs

jbar62
Weezer 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.

The Top Ten

1 Say It Ain't So

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.

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? )

Beautiful song, filled with emotion and power, definitely deserves number one!

3 Undone (The Sweater Song)

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.

Song which got me into Weezer. I've heard this song almost hundreds of time now...

Best lyrics ever, so amazing, life changing. Definitely a top 5 weezer song.

Sane people choose this over buddy holly

4 Island in the Sun

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.

Dude this is the best weezer song so far. I don't know why its not at the top list

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

Best song hands down

5 El Scorcho

"I'll bring home the Turkey and you'll bring home the bacon! "

Love it.

Love this song. It's ridiculously catchy and I just can't help but sing out loud when the chorus hits.

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. - Badoosh45

I'm a lot like you so please, hello, I'm waitin'... - nam_nam

6 My Name is Jonas

Amazing song, great guitar playing as well! Definitely among their best!

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.

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.

7 Hash Pipe

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.

Their best riff, an amazing song with so much attitude, maybe my favorite weezer' song

A LOT better than Island In The Sun, I don't know how that song is higher than this one,

Just awesome

8 The Good Life

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.

Great song not my favorite though - nam_nam

9 Only in Dreams

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.

You can totally feel this song, everyone can relate to it. The length is scary, but trust me, lay down somewhere relax and listen to this song. You'll know what I mean when you do.

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.

Best last song on an album. Ever.

10 Across the Sea

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.

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"- WTF?

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

The Contenders

11 In the Garage

This song summarizes weezer an awesome nerdy rock group that we have come to know and love

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 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.

12 Pink Triangle

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!

"I'm dumb, she's a lesbian. I thought I had found the one"

So good

13 Pork and Beans

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!

This song has a great music video. - MEEKOY

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!

One of the best hands down!

14 Beverly Hills

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! - juandavidnogueramontoya

Really layed back, very relatable. One of their bes

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. - LedPearlPeppers

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.

15 Perfect Situation

Good melody in this one. I never get tired of listening to it.

God I love this song so much. It makes any sucky day of mine seem much better.

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

Their best song of all time!

16 Tired of Sex

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
- thunder2221

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. - evoxpisces

You can really feel the pain in his voice as he starts screaming, and the solo is insane.

My favorite song on pinkerton - Jiorl

17 (If You're Wondering If I Want You To) I Want You To

So catchy! The first day I heard it, Well, I listened to the song WAY too many times that day. My Fav. Song!

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.

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 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. - rcj37

18 The World Has Turned and Left Me Here

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 emotion harmonies and power of this song is just awesome. And it just transports you into this mood that is undeniably awesome

Yes yes yes yes yes this song gets overlooked by many weezer fans when it's their greatest! Say it ain't so and Buddy holly are the most overrated songs off the blue album this and MNIJ are amazing tracks! Holiday, No one else and In the garage are honorable mentions for sure!

19 Troublemaker

Choice song, one of there layed back songs and catchy

Really expected this to be higher

I like the personal introspective aspect of this song.

20 The Angel and the One

For a true weezer fan (or was until they stopped caring and don't write their own songs anymore) this is by far the best they've ever done. When weezer care and put effort in this is what they come out with, pure class. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE weezer get back to being yourselves four guys in a room live making great tracks like this

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
