Pinkerton, Weezer’s sophomore album, is often described as the tortured confessional to end all tortured confessionals, essentially a diary of Cuomo’s notorious Asian fetish. But Say It Ain’t So is just as raw, and arguably has more that its listeners can use, throwing its arms wide open to anyone who’s known the trauma of dad issues. For as classic as the album is considered now, Blue didn’t make the 1994 Pazz & Jop year-end critics’ poll. Back then, Weezer were considered alt opportunists or even Pavement ripoffs-a comparison that seems silly now, looking at the distinct rock strains since indebted to Cuomo. But MTV and radio airplay for Buddy Holly and Undone - The Sweater Song made Weezer huge, and The Blue Album went double-platinum within 15 months of its release.
