This week, we're giving you a twofer of sorts--a Weezer Framed, but also a Happy Days Framed.
The reason, of course, is their justly-famous video for "Buddy Holly," off their first album, Weezer. (Weezer's so cool that three of their albums are titled Weezer. Nowadays, their first LP is commonly called The Blue Album.) The video, in which director Spike Jonze used footage from the once-megapopular Happy Days show, was a smash hit back in 1994, and went on to win four MTV Video Music Awards. It's still pretty damn funny, too.
Weezer, of course, went on to make the even-better Pinkerton album, and three others, and are back this year with Weezer (The Red Album), which came out a few weeks ago. Is the new record any good? We can only quote Y! Music's own ace critic, Dave DiMartino, in New This Week, who enthused "This album is unquestionably red, as its parenthetical title implies, so it sounds great!" Dave knows all about music!
Enjoy classic Weezer at their best, and please let us know what you think!
