Weezer debuted in 1994 with their self-titled album, referred to by fans as “The Blue Album.” The album was a huge commercial success spawning the popular singles "Undone – The Sweater Song" and "Buddy Holly", both of which were responsible for launching Weezer into mainstream success with the aid of music videos directed by Spike Jonze. It has been certified three times platinum by the RIAA, making it Weezer's best-selling album of all-time.
