Death and Destruction is the same recording as heard on the Keep Fishin' UK Maxi CD single#1
special note: the numbering of the cd's went up to the 33,000's because a large number of the sleeves were defective and were recycled in the printing process [over 8000 copies]. so they kept printing and numbering as they went till they had a total quantity of 25,000... though the numbering got into the 34,000's.

The recording features the only released appearence of Jason Cropper in weezer, and dates from the spring of '93. Originally planned to go on an indie 7", but never did. So much for "indie cred"!

random weezer appearences:

Brian appears on the Ash track "Devil's Haircut" on an Ash 7", which is basically an answering machine message from Brian Bell to Tim Wheeler in '96.
"The World Has Turned And Left Me Here" is used in the "Man Down" skate video by Tilt Mode Army, in Caswell Berry's part.
"Dope Nose" appears on TM Century's HitDisc #452B, released on 3/15/02. HitDiscs are special promo cd's that are serviced to smaller market radio stations who do not have direct relationships with the major labels, who normally send out ("service") their latest radio promo cd's to stations.

"old school" bootlegs

note: before the internet era of easy file sharing, fans traded illegally taped ("bootlegged") shows of their fave bands with one another for no profit, a scene which continues to present day. Meanwhile bootleg LPs (and CDs after the mid 80s) were generally considered specialty items sold on the grey market, produced by shadowy (usually foreign) companies who had no authority to make a profit off of the illegal recordings, but who existed outside the jurisdiction of US copyright laws. Weezer has always been against the selling of weezer bootlegs in any form.
In the early years of weezer, there was still a healthy market for these illegal cds, and there are several now famous examples which are listed below. All of these contain live performances, generally taped by an audience member, and all were produced in non North American countries wherein copyright laws were lax.
In the ensuing years, aided by the explosion in file sharing, there has been a huge increase in such cds, but very few were made by what could be called a 'manufacturer', as they were often runs of 50-100 copies made with home computers and instantly offered on ebay. Further complicating matters was a massive rise in mp3 sourced cds and cds that were blatant rip-off collections of officially released material, such as the bands real b-sides, often combined with random live recordings, converted mp3s that the band released for free on in the first place, and recordings that werent even weezer at all, incorrectly attributed as such. (please note that as of 2004, the ONLY official releases of weezers normal and 'rare' material are listed (elsewhere) in this discography page.)
As this area is impossible to properly document and consists of poorly concieved illegal packages of material that either was never intended to go to the public (at least not for a fee), or was already released on the official releases elsewhere in this discography, only a few early examples are included, as they have attained some historical significance. Note further that there have even been "re-bootlegs" of the below 'famous' bootlegs by home-computer bootleggers. Originals of the below examples are identifiable by the "professional" style manufactured cd, as opposed to a cd-r.
Also note that the recordings contained on these discs is often of abysmal quality, and rather than waste $ buying them, it is almost always possible to find these recordings for free online in mp3 form.
