Weezer started out as a bunch of nerds making music together to one of the most successful alt rock bands in music. Their albums Pinkerton and The Blue Album are now considered classics and are constantly being rediscovered by new generations. Frontman Rivers Cuomo’s black rimmed glasses are now just as iconic as Robert Smith’s spider hair. The band continued their winning streak with their tenth album Weezer also known as The White Album, which peaked at no. 4 on the Billboard 200. 49,000 copies sold in its first week beating out their previous successful album Everything Will Be Alright in the End. Make sure to catch Weezer on their tour with Panic! At the Disco this summer. The two will play the Hollywood Casino Amphitheatre in Tinley Park on July 10th. Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness will join as the support act.
