Electric Ladyland is the third and final studio album by the Jimi Hendrix Experience, and the final studio album released in Hendrix's lifetime before his death in 1970.

Influence on Weezer

When asked in a 2005 interview to identify an album that changed his life, Weezer bassist Scott Shriner mentioned Electric Ladyland:

First time I heard it - when I was a kid - it kinda really scared me, some of the sounds on it. I was really young - like way too young to really be listening to it. But I kinda grew up with it, and I kinda came in more and more, and it really stirred me in a huge direction.

Weezer recorded their debut album in Electric Lady Studios, built by Hendrix only 10 months before his death.
