Photograph (2:19)

Cover of Weezer (Green Album)

From Weezer (Green Album) and 13 other releases

“Photograph” is the third and final single from Weezer’s self-titled third album. “Photograph” was actually released as the first single off the album in Japan instead of “Hash Pipe.” The song enjoyed only modest success on the radio, peaking at #17 on Billboard’s Modern Rock Tracks chart.

The music video for the song is notable for being directed by webmaster and longtime friend of the band Karl Koch. It consists of footage shot while the band was touring for The Green Album. Among the notable footage is Rivers Cuomo playing soccer, Brian Bell attempting to skateboard and juggle (not at the same time), Patrick Wilson riding a Razor Scooter, a brief clip of the duo from Tenacious D running onstage during a Weezer show and a scene with Rivers playing a prank on new bassist Scott Shriner. Interestingly enough, although Mikey Welsh plays bass and sings backup vocals on the studio recording, Shriner is in the video, as Welsh had left the band at that point. During the very end of the video, when Cuomo is playing the prank on Shriner, a demo of “Death & Destruction” can be heard in the background. This song would later surface on the band’s next album Maladroit. The video is featured on Video Capture Device, the band’s DVD.

During many live shows in 2005, the band would close out their first set by having Weezer drummer Patrick Wilson take lead vocals and guitar on “Photograph” while Rivers played drums.
