Hear You Me! A Tribute to Mykel and Carli is a compilation album released in 1998 on Vast Records in tribute to Mykel and Carli Allan, founders of the Weezer Fan Club. The Allan sisters had passed away in a car crash in July of the previous year.

In the wake of the sisters' untimely passing, a tribute/benefit concert was organized to help the Allan family with the high funeral costs. The show featured friends of the Allan sisters that dog., Black Market Flowers, and was headlined by Weezer. The successful but somber event was held at the Palace Theater in Hollywood on August 15, 1997. The concert, in turn, inspired the album. The album contained mostly rare or unreleased tracks by bands that were friends or acquaintances of the sisters and/or Weezer, or who just plain wanted to help out.

From the album's liner notes:

Some time ago, when joking about the possibility of a Mykel and Carli compilation CD, Carli stated 'we used to have dreams of a Mykel and Carli tribute, [but] some dreams must be abandoned.' Although tragic circumstances inspired this CD, those whose lives were touched by the Allan sisters have turned their dreams into reality.
Mykel, Carli and Trysta... we will all miss you very much."
