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? )

The snare fill into the final chorus, and the little bass run is one of the greatest things in music

2 Buddy Holly

A classic weezer song love it - Flyingmidget12

Unforgettable and catchy chorus. The guitar riffs are also outstanding both in the verses and in the choruses.

classic, awesome solo, awesome bridge, awesome lyrics. AWESOME SONG

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.

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.

Best song of weezer. The lyrics, the sound and the ending man, its awesome

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 love it!

6 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,

I got my hash pipe

7 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.

8 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.

Quite possibly the most underrated song they have this song reminds me of some other masterpieces I know like a certain arctic monkeys song, a mellowed our song that gets better and better with lyrics at their best and the greatest bass line and guitar solo I’ve ever heard

9 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

10 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

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 FEEL SAAAFE

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!

How can you not like this song

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

By far my favorite Weezer song. Can't stop listening to it!

16 (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

17 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.

One of the songs that can give the blue album greats a go for their money... definitely should be ranked higher

18 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

19 Falling for You

This needs to be higher! Those key changes in the chorus are amazing. - tonirali

This song is immaculate and perfect, with that sweet G riff... its perfectness... especially when played after pink triangle

The solo in this track is perfect.

20 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

My favorite. - JCHOW

21 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

One of the best since Pinkerton

22 Keep Fishin'

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!

23 Butterfly

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.

24 The Greatest Man That Ever Lived

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 am the greatest man that ever lived...

So empowering, great rock song

Should be top10

25 Why Bother?

This should be way higher - LizardKing99

So amazing and relatable

Amazing rhythm.

26 Da Vinci

This song took me from liking Weezer to being obsessed with Weezer. Great groove, great chords, great melody, and a lot of little background stuff that really makes it pop.

The vinci should be higher in the countdown

27 Back to the Shack

Amazing new song... If they had come out with this earlier in their career, it would take some life out of it, but it would already be at the top. But I guess Rivers needed that "aha" moment - Drum_Solo

Very underrated. Great song though. It proved Weezer had not in fact lost its way during the 2000s.

This song made me a fan of weezer

Awesome song

28 No One Else

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.

Such a brilliant tune

The most underrated song of all time!

Top 10 For Sure

29 Foolish Father
30 Memories

I heard this on Jackass 3 and I love this song. It's awesome that the Jackass crew sings the chorus. Can't get over this song.

The song that introduced me too them when I saw it on Jackass. Love the song and love the fact that you see the guys hanging out singing, playing instruments and skateboarding - Danielsun182

This song is really upbeat and can cheer you up, really think it should've been in the top ten. (My graduation song)!

Awesome song

31 Surf Wax America

Why? Should be Lower

It's called Surf Wax America idiot
It's also pretty damn good

32 Photograph

This song is so catchy, 2nd best song from The Green Album after Island In The Sun of course.

One of the few songs that sounds amazing on the first listen and never loses its spark. It's corny. It's unabashedly positive. And I gobble it all up.

Probably not their best but top 5 at least for me

This is THE BEST Weezer song by far.

33 Death and Destruction
34 King of the World

The song to be revealed alongside The White album. It's fantastic. A true Weezer song

To me this song speaks to how the world and life may be hard but there are those who love and understand you

Awesome song. Just amazing

Favorite song from the new album.. Long live Weezer!

35 Do You Wanna Get High?

A very great and underrated song. It really reminds me of Weezer's Pinkerton era and I really wish the rest of the white album captured the beauty that was in this song. While I don't think this should be #1, I think it should at least be around #5 or 6

Painfully underrated song!

One of their best recent songs. Definitely desereves to be higher than hash pipe

The broken and drained vocals. The blaring guitars and and groovy bassline with chill drums and keyboards that's just ooze with angst with the solo and vocal harmonies the lyrics are romantic in a twisted sort of w.ay and the whoe song is so grimy and sounds sooo good. My personal favoritr song by my favorite band.

36 Breed (Nirvana Cover)

This is such a perfect weezer song, it should be higher

#47? This song should be at least in the 20's. Better than island in the sun and buddy holly easily
