Pinkerton is the second album by the American alternative rock band Weezer, released on September 24, 1996. Rivers Cuomo, the band's lead singer and guitarist, wrote all of its songs after a painful leg surgery; as a result, they were written in first-position on his guitar's fretboard so that he would not have to move too much to play them. Pinkerton is named after the character .

This is real Weezer, not the bull Weezer that came with the new millenium. This and Blue are nearly tied for greatness, in my opinion. Bottom Line, If you like Blue, get Pinkerton. It's a shame this album was shunned by Rivers. I think that if it wasn't killed by critics, then Weezer would not have gone on to make songs like We Are All On Drugs.
