Super-Chrono is the name of an extensively detailed chronology of Weezer's band history and a collection of current updates written by Karl Koch. Its first incarnation, simply titled "Chronology", was made available on weezer.net in late 1998. In 2002 the old "Chronology" was completely redesigned, updated and finally retitled "Super-Chrono" for a new release on the band's official website weezer.com. From then until 2005, when weezer.com transferred to Geffen's servers and the Make Believe era design, the Super-Chrono was accessible via the info section of the site.
