Weezer took a 5 year break after harsh criticisms of their sophomore album Pinkerton. Rolling Stone named Pinkerton the worst album of 1996…ouch. However, they came back from their hiatus serving the public, and harsh critics, a nice slice of Weezer pie. This was Weezer’s second self titled album, but fans called it the “green album” for its green cover, and it stuck. This album gave birth to one of Weezer’s most well-known songs, “Island In The Sun.” The Green Album put Weezer back on top of the alt rock game. Get it on black vinyl here.
