47.“Simple Pages” by Weezer (2001)

I remember people being really excited about Weezer’s Green Album when it came out. And though a segment of the fanbase seemed unhappy about Rivers Cuomo leaving the confessional songs from Pinkerton behind him, The Green Album truly kicked ass. Since then, Rivers had released tons of albums, both with Weezer and solo, but none of them compare to their first three records. In a way, The Green Album seemed to bridge the old 90s Weezer with what would become the absurd aughts Weezer, but taking everything for what it is, I think we should all just be happy that Weezer is still around, doing what they do.
