Band Biography[]

One of the bands credited with founding the emo subgenre (not to be confused with Emo Phillips who also released records, but of a much, much different nature), Weezer's been around for quite some time. There have been some band lineup changes and public falling-outs (particularly between Rivers Cuomo and Matt Sharp). They're one of the rare bands with lots of hit singles as well as critical acclaim.
