Weezer (1994), commonly referred to as The Blue Album, is the debut album by the band Weezer, released May 10, 1994. (Weezer has also come to be known as the name of another of the band's albums, released in 2001, which originally was announced as officially being titled The Green Album.) Arguably the most popular of the songs on The Blue Album are "Buddy Holly" and "Undone (The Sweater Song)", and to a lesser extent "Say It Ain't So", all of which were released as singles.

"Undone (the Sweater Song)" was released as the first single. Spike Jonze directed the music video produced for the track. It featured Weezer performing on a sound stage, with dogs eventually swarming the set.

Jonze also directed the band's second video for "Buddy Holly." The video featured Weezer spliced with episodes of the television sitcom Happy Days and arguably pushed the band to mainstream success.

Directed by Sophie Muller, "Say It Ain't So" reached relatively less success as a video. It featured bandmates playing hacky sack and performing the track.

The art on the album jacket is similar to the art on the Feelies' first album Crazy Rhythms.

As of July 2002, the album had sold 2,652,339 copies in the U.S., where it peaked in February 1995 at #16. It is currently certified 3 times platinum, making it Weezer's all-time best seller.

This album was also re-released and repackaged in 2004 as a Deluxe Edition which included a second disc of b-sides and other rarities that the band had yet to release on an officially released album.
