Band Name Origins:

  • Well while there is much speculation, it has recently been discussed at the offical Weezer message board, that Rivers Cuomo weezer's front man had a dream of a man with a flaming pie, the man with the pie was from outer space. When Rivers awoke from his dream the first thing that came to his mind was Weezer, and then he chose it for the band name. Submitted by: Onlyinpinkerton
  • One of Jon's high school (or college) pals in GARFIELD was nicknamed Weezer. The guys in the band of this name thought it was cool. Submitted by: Alan the Ottoman

The Lyrics:
What's with these homies dissing my girl?
Why do they gotta front?
What did we ever do to these guys,
that made them so violent?
Rivers pronounces "violent" as "vy-o-lunt", probably so it rhymes with "front".

Hidden Messages:

"Weezer (The Green Album)"
Weezer's 2001 album often known as The Green Album is home to a perculiar hidden message. If you open up the CD case and look behind the CD tray (to see the rear back cover) and look down the spine to the right, you will find the message 'No'. This might sound weird, but perhaps not when I tell you Radiohead's OK Computer has a message in the same place that reads "I like you. I like you. You are a wonderful person. I'm full of enthusiasm. I'm going places. I'll be happy to help you. I am an important person, would you like to come home with me?". The Green Album is answering OK Computer's question, basically.
