Background information[edit]

In 1994, pop-rock band Weezer released their first studio album, Weezer, which would later be known among fans as The Blue Album. This album skyrocketed Weezer to number 1 and cemented their place as one of the greatest bands of all time. However, years prior in 1973, EMI Studios released a compliation album of Beatles songs titled The Beatles 1967-1970 which would also later be known among fans as The Blue Album. Rivers Cuomo may not be John Lennon or Paul McCartney, but both 'Blue Albums' include some of both bands' best material, henceforth the question; which band has the better 'Blue Album'?

Track listing[edit]

Weezer[edit]

My Name Is Jonas, No One Else, The World Has Turned And Left Me Here, Buddy Holly, Undone - The Sweater Song, Surf Wax America, Say It Ain't So, In The Garage, Holiday and Only In Dreams.

Despite having 18 less songs on the album, the Weezer Blue Album still stands its ground aganist The Beatles. Buddy Holly was such a hit that Microsoft even bundled it in with Windows 95. Weezers' 'Blue Album' is still considered as one of their best albums, along with Pinkerton, along with that all ten tracks on the album are among most Weezer fans all time favourite Weezer songs.

Album cover[edit]

Weezer[edit]

The album cover to Weezer, is a solid blue background with all four members standing in front of it. It is because of the blue backdrop that Weezer fans nicknamed it the "Blue Album", aswell as later Weezer albums Weezer and Weezer being called "Green" and "Red", respectively. The album cover is also the only Weezer cover to show Matt Sharps face as he wouldn't show his face for another 20 years as it was bashed in by a Netflix employee while he was working at Blockbuster in 1996.

Beatles[edit]

The cover art to The Beatles (1967-1970) is a parody of The Beatles 1963 debut album, Please Please Me. But instead of looking like their young moptop wearing selfs; John, Paul, George and Ringo are now looking like their Abbey Road selves, most notably John, who looks like the love child of Jesus and a homeless guy.

Verdict[edit]

So, who does have the better 'Blue Album'? Is it Weezer? Or is it the "most popular band in the world", The Beatles? As a major fan of both bands, to the extent to that of a K-pop stan on Twitter, this is a really tough choice to make. So, after much thought and deduction, I have came to the conclusion that the best 'Blue' album is in fact Joni Mitchells' Blue that was released in 1971.
