** The Green Album had a similar situation to ''Make Believe'' in that an album's worth of demos were recorded, then almost entirely scrapped: 14 of these songs appeared in set-lists for a summer tour that year (hence receiving the fan nickname "summer songs 2000"), but only one, "Hash Pipe", made the next album [[note]]BSide "Brightening Day" was a demo from the same era, but was never played live[[/note]]. In response to fan demand, two more of the "=SS2K=" songs appeared on ''Maladroit'' ("Dope Nose", "Slob"), and Rivers Cuomo gave a fan-site an "official" Summer Songs 2000 digital release, consisting of ten studio demos and live soundboard recordings which were edited and re-structured to Rivers' liking.

* WorkingTitle: ''Make Believe'' could have been called ''One Thousand Soviet Children Marching Towards The Sun'' (Patrick Wilson's suggestion), or ''Either Way I'm Fine'' (after a phrase that Rivers Cuomo would frequently use when discussing how to arrange/produce certain songs).
* WordOfSaintPaul: Karl Koch is considered such an authority on Weezer (especially because he's known them for a year before they actually formed) that whenever WordOfGod is unavailable, fans usually ask him instead. This happens so often fans {{Pun}}nily refer to the practice as [[http://www.weezerpedia.com/wiki/index.php?title=Karlification Karlification]].

** "My Best Friend" was written for the ''{{Film/Shrek2}}'' soundtrack, but was rejected because it didn't quite fit the timing of the sequence it was to be used for - Music/CountingCrows' "Accidentally In Love" took its place.

* UnintentionalPeriodPiece: The "Pork and Beans" video brings together just about every person who was famous on the internet as of 2007, many of whom for silly novelty videos and who's FifteenMinutesOfFame have long since past.
** Some fans see "Make Believe" as this, saying with that album the band was trying way too hard to fit in with other popular Emo bands like FallOutBoy (the album cover practically screams mid-2000s) which cause the album to sound somewhat outdated now that the Emo trend is pretty much dead.

** Rivers is also a big soccer fan and wrote "Represent" as an unofficial anthem for the U.S. national team for the 2010 WorldCup. He also wrote "My Day Is Coming" (released on ''Alone II'') for the 2006 WorldCup, initially intending it to be a triumphant song but some bad results caused the song to become downbeat instead.
