May 10, 1994: On this date, WEEZER released their self-titled debut album, the one that soon became known as THE BLUE ALBUM. A monumental record that still holds up two decades later (they play it live in it’s entirety on a frequent basis), no one would’ve expected the band to become as long-lasting and successful as they have, especially after the initial “failure” of PINKERTON, and the extended hiatus that followed. Last year, I wrote a feature here on THE ROCK FATHER that is very appropriate to be re-shared today: Everybody Get Dangerous: WEEZER, Kids and Rock. If you haven’t already, go give it a read, and crank up some tunes below…

Other Important Records Released on May 10, 1994:
  • SONIC YOUTH – EXPERIMENTAL JET SET, TRASH AND NO STAR | The album that brought “Bull in the Heather” and perhaps the most “mainstream” notoriety for the band.
  • G. LOVE and SPECIAL SAUCE – Self-Titled | Can I get a “Cold Beverage?” 
  • HUEY LEWIS AND THE NEWS – FOUR CHORDS & SEVERAL YEARS AGO | Huey Lewis is one of my Top 10 artists of all-time. Respect. Read more about Huey here.
The 20th Anniversary of 1994:

History has proven that 1994 was a massive year for music, but it’s also an important year for me as it’s the year I graduated High School. With that, I’ll be taking a look back at important releases from 1994 here on THE ROCK FATHER as 2014 rolls on.
