Weezer is the sixth studio album and the third self-titled album defined by a colour from American rock band Weezer. It was released on June 3, 2008, by DGC Records. It is the second Weezer album produced by Rick Rubin, while also being produced by the Band themselves and a guy named Jacknife (what a cool name).

Background[edit]

After the harsh backlash of Make Believe by both fans and critics, Cuomo went back to the drawing board. He entered his Man Cave and emerged five weeks later. He pitched the idea of a third self-titled Weezer album but instead of being Blue or Green this time, it will be Red. The band agreed to Rivers' pitch; only because they knew it was gonna make a shit ton of money no matter what. For the album cover photo, the band was asked to dress up what they wanted to be when they were younger. Rivers, of course being a weirdo, became a Cowboy and would wear his Cowboy hat at live performances when touring. He also grew a pedo-stache which pissed fans off even more, although I quite liked it.

Reception[edit]

The Red Album was released to high appraise, but fans were still heard saying "Blue and Pinkerton are the only Weezer albums that matter". Music videos were made, with one starring internet celebrities, most notably Chocolate Rain Guy, for Porn and Bees. For the music video for Breadmaker, Rivers tweeted out that he wanted to get the largest gathering of people to make the biggest plate of tacos and to play a game of Tug-of-War.
