List RulesThis list includes studio albums only.

Weezer is known as one of the best alternative rock bands of all time. List of the best Weezer albums, including pictures of the album covers when available. This Weezer discography is ranked from best to worst, so the top Weezer albums can be found at the top of the list. The band came together in the early 1990s, and emerged as a power pop meets alt rock powerhouse, with more than enough tongue-in-cheek geek to avoid being labeled too mainstream. This quirkiness extends to their album names: several have an eponymous moniker, yet are widely referred to by fans based on their cover art background color - for instance, Weezer (Green Album) and Weezer (Red Album)

To make it easy for you, we haven't included Weezer singles, EPs, or compilations, so everything you see here should only be studio albums. If you think the greatest Weezer album isn't ranked highly enough, then be sure to vote for it so it receives the credit it deserves. Make sure you don't just vote for critically acclaimed albums; if you have a favorite Weezer album, then vote it up, even if it's not necessarily the most popular.

If you want to know the best Weezer album of all time, this list will answer your question. Albums range from Pinkerton to Weezer (Blue Album). These popular Weezer CDs have been voted on by music fans around the world, so the order isn't just one person's opinion.
