Weezer has released a ton of b-sides and demos over the years, and some of them are better than their studio albums. Here are a few highlights:
Everybody Needs Salvation
The first fan-club single released in 2015, the track was meant to be on the unreleased concept album Ecce Homo and was recorded during the EWBAITE sessions.
You Gave Your Love To Me Softly
Recorded in the Pinkerton sessions and included as a b-side on the El Scorcho single.
From the Mallrats soundtrack.
It’s Been So Long
The 3rd fan-club single from 2019.
My favourite of their SS2K demos.
A Pixies cover that was the first track to feature Mikey Welsh.
A Maladroit demo which has many different demo versions, but I prefer the version with falsetto vocals.
Lullaby for Wayne
A demo that was in consideration for the Blue album.
Mykel & Carli
A b-side to the Sweater Song about Weezer fan-club founders Mykel and Carli Allan (RIP).
A Buddy Holly b-side about Weezer’s first attorney Jamie Young.
An early demo recorded for Weezer’s 5th album.
