Rock Candy and Boys At Play are unofficial CDs released by the labels "Home Records" and "Troll Records" respectively in the year 1995.

History

"Rock Candy" and "Boys At Play" are very early physical Weezer bootlegs, being released around the same time as Geezer and American Holiday. "Rock Candy" was released early enough to be considered by the band as the third Weezer bootleg ever created, earning a spot on their Facebook page on December 4, 2013. Curiously, despite being identical releases, "Boys At Play" is not mentioned.

Included in the bootlegs' tracklist are multiple early versions of Pinkerton songs, such as "Getchoo", and "Tired of Sex", as well as multiple songs that ended up as B-Sides, such as "Jamie" and "You Gave Your Love To Me Softly", all of which were erroneously listed with different song titles on the bootleg's tracklist.

While the two CDs have different titles, cover arts, and labels, they were both released by the same group of people. The barcodes of the two releases are identical, the unique Weezer logo found on the artwork appears on both, and they both contain the same audio from the band's September 9, 1994 show. The labels "Home Records" and "Troll Records" can be traced back to Sizzling Music, an Italian music distributer known for producing live bootleg CDs under multiple pseudonyms for dozens of bands during 1994 and 1995.

Like other similar bootlegs, these CDs are now incredibly hard to find and are coveted by collectors interested in the band's early history.
