A band that is not and cannot be "emo." "Emo" is a word created to further the delineation of all music into tiny, highly-specified categories. It is a false label, much as "grunge" was in the early 1990's. Moreover, it is a recent term, new within the past year or two, while Weezer's Blue Album was released in 1994, quite a long time before some recording industry advertising hack created the term "emo." Weezer, having predated "emo" by a number of years, cannot therefore be "emo."
Weezer plays rock music, much the same as most all other "emo," "punk," "metal," etc. bands.

an alternative rock band, who debuted with their self-titled album, commonly referred to as the blue album, in 1994. their next album, pinkerton, was at first rejected by many, and the ever fickle Rolling Stone named it the worst album of 1996. they later apologized, and the album is now praised by many as being one of the best albums of the last twenty years. weezer, under the leadership of Rivers Cuomo is known for their brilliant ability to write music. they would later release two more albums, the green album, and maladroit. both failed to live up to the name of their predecessors. they recently released another album, make believe, on may 10, 2005.
Dude. Weezer owns. =w=

an awesome band that people should stop accusing of being emo. one of the funniest things about them is that their ex bassist commited himself because he knew he had problems
weezer is fucking awesome
Weezer are sort of a nerd rock band... but the thing is that they have created their own mixed genre with a bit of everything. Everything to do with the Weez should be based around Blue and Pinkerton, 2 of my favourite albums ever.
They did OK with their latest three albums, Green, Maladroit, and Make Believe but have evidently deteirated over time.
I like their early lyrics and melodies... and the best song is probably... eughh... no, I can't decide.
Weezer pwn yoose. OK?

An rock band known as the "hash-pipe guys" or the "sweater-song guys", known for their emotional song lyrics and ani-rock star atitude.
"Weezer is so emo" *punch in the face* "Fuck you faggot"

The kicking-assest rock band from the last decade. They're the best ever examples of Billie Joe Armstrong's words of wisdom: "There's nothing wrong with being a loser. It just depends on how good you are at it."
The guys from Weezer are awesome at it. The rest of us losers can only ever hope to be as good at it as they are.

Weezer is rock/alternative music. NOT "emo".
Emo Poser: I LOVE Weezer. They're SO emo, and I like to cut my emo wrists and listen to them.

Me: *Breaks emo poser's nose* Shut up, fag. Weezer are NOT emo. *Makes little quotation marks in the air with fingers when says "emo"*
