Featured song: "Photograph"
"Photograph" is the second song and third single from Weezer's 2001 album, The Green Album. Originally known as "If You Want It", "Photograph" was released in Japan as the lead-off promo single for The Green Album, which differs from the US's "Hash Pipe." The song enjoyed only modest success on the radio, peaking at #17 on Billboard's Modern Rock Tracks chart. There are two alternate mixes floating around on the internet. The first to crop up was an extended, unmastered version that leaked before the album's release along with thirteen other Green sessions tracks. This version, clocking in at nearly three minutes, features a verse that was cut out of the final edit. Also, there is an alternate mix of the song from the initial Japanese promo CDs, featuring an edited intro, and no applause at the end. During many live shows in 2005, the band would close out their first set by having drummer Patrick Wilson take lead vocals and guitar on "Photograph", while Rivers Cuomo played drums. Most of the time the band would do a medley of "Photograph" and the Blur song "Song 2." The music video for the song is notable for being directed by Weezer.com 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 Cuomo playing soccer, guitarist Brian Bell attempting to skateboard and juggle (not at the same time), Wilson riding a Razor Scooter, a brief clip of the duo from Tenacious D running onstage during a Weezer show and a scene with Cuomo playing a prank on new bassist Scott Shriner. During the very end of the video, when Cuomo is playinga prank on Shriner, a demo of "Death and Destruction" can be heard in the background.
