About

Weezer Blue Album Cover Parodies refers to exploitable edits of Weezer's debut self-titled album, known as The Blue Album to fans after Weezer released several other self-titled albums with different colored backgrounds. The cover features members of the band standing in front of a blue backdrop. Edits feature the band appearing in front of various different backdrops or feature some of the members replaced.

The Blue Album was released May 10th, 1994.[1] It featured hit singles "Buddy Holly," "Undone (The Sweater Song)," and "Say It Ain't So."
