WEEZER LIVE IN CONCERT

American alternative-rock band Weezer have released The Blue Album (1994), The Green Album (2001), The Red Album (2008) and The White Album (2016). Actually, those were all titled Weezer, but each was given a nickname after the colour of its album cover for easy reference. The band certainly have a deadpan sense of humour and it comes through on songs such as Undone - The Sweater Song.
