Featured article: Thoughts from a Green Mind (or, It’s Not Easy Being Green)


Thoughts from a Green Mind (or, It’s Not Easy Being Green) is a piece written by Karl Koch in 2021 on the occasion of the 20th anniversary of Weezer’s Green Album.

5/15/21 marks 20 years to the day from the release of our 3rd album, “weezer” aka “The Green Album”. This is quite a milestone because at the time, it was considered to be the beginning of a new era - the first new weezer album in 5 years, first since the departure of original bass player Matt, and a fresh new start for a band that the press and many casual fans had written off after Pinkerton’s undeserved slow fade out in ‘97.

"The Greatest Man That Ever Lived (Variations on a Shaker Hymn)" is the third single and second track from The Red Album. Deciding that he was tired of the typical verse-chorus-verse structure of songwriting, Rivers Cuomo instead decided to write a song using the musical structure of theme and variations, as used in classical music, utilizing different bands and musician styles (Slipknot, Jeff Buckley, Aerosmith, etc.) as the different variations.

Featured list: Catalog O' Riffs

The Catalog O' Riffs, sometimes abbreviated as COR, documents riffs and songs that Rivers Cuomo wrote from it's inception in January 1999 until 2004. Due to discrepancies between sources for COR entries, Weezerpedia now organizes each entry into columns for each source.
