Weezer refuses to be the norm band that sells-out and sucks up limelight 24/7 to be mainstream. They keep music real, kids.

On the scale of awesomeness, Weezer is super great.

An awesome band that got accused of trying to be "emo", because the lead singer wears thick rimmed glasses and writes melody based rock with often sad, emotional lyrics. They're not emo, and people who accuse them of trying to be are lame.
Weezer will probably go down in history for its single, "Buddy Holly", and the very well-edited splice-work video that went along with it.

The greatest rock band of the past 10 years. Period. They are basically defined by their anti-rockstar status. They are losers, and admit it in many of their songs. Their best release had to be the blue album which is followed chronologically by all their other releases (Pinkerton, Green and Maladriot).
Weezer is awesome, listen to any song they have ever written.
Check out:
Jamie (a song about their old lawyer)
The World Has Turned and Left Me Here (amazing harmonies)
Only in Dreams (kick ass bass line)
