The Lowdown is a 2 CD set of unauthorized informational CDs on the band's history. It includes Maximum Weezer: The Unauthorised Biography of Weezer and a CD titled "The Interview".
Included in the collection's cardboard case is "Maximum Weezer: The Unauthorised Biography of Weezer", a biography released on CD by the label Chrome Dreams in 2002, featuring a 8-page booklet and a fold-out poster, along with "The Interview", a collection of interviews touching on various experiences the different members have had working and touring as Weezer. Neither of the CD's contents are of exceptionally high quality, Maximum Weezer: The Unauthorised Biography of Weezer 's having multiple factual errors and little significant information on the band, and The Interview 's being a collection of unsourced, poor quality interviews.
It is part of a larger series of releases by Chrome Dreams and Sexy Intellectual of low-quality, unauthorized biographies on different artists.
