  • Aiken Nutz from Tahlequah OkPhotograph is a cool song & I like those lyrics. Even the background vocals make it cool. I got this Green Album when I was 10, from a cousin who loves Weezer. I think Hash Pipe is cool too with the big guitars and musical accents I've never heard anywhere else. Weezer is still my favorite rock band.
  • Babbling Babette from Tulsa OkWhen Weezer's Green Album came out, I was crazy about it. So I bought the CD & I still have it. It's just so good. Then, just the other day I was in a Walmart here & heard this song "Photograph" over their music system. Brought back good memories of school & boyfriends. Rivers' voice sounds so young on these songs. He's a very good songwriter. Weezer's latest album, "Everything Will Be Alright In The End" is awesome & a hit. Now, "Photograph" has an infectious melody & it's difficult to get it outa your head. When it came out, I nearly always was humming it in school & everyone thought I was nuts. Well I am not nuts, just a Weezer fan. Well, maybe I am a little nuts, but I am a good hearted nut. Not in the "insane" way though. You know? I am nuts over Weezer. There I go again, babbling on.
  • Douglas from Staten Island , NyI got this album for christmas five years ago!!
