Summer Songs of 2000 (also known as SS2K) are a group of songs that were demoed in 2000 and performed live by Weezer on their comeback summer tour that year. It is also the defacto name of an "album" created and leaked by Rivers Cuomo on the internet with altered versions of the songs in 2001.
In the summer of 2000, Weezer (then consisting of Cuomo, Mikey Welsh, Pat Wilson, and Brian Bell) went on tour, including dates on the popular Vans Warped Tour. Weezer's setlists during the tour typically consisted of classics from The Blue Album, Pinkerton, a couple of B-sides, and a rotation of as many as four of fourteen new songs. Many fans assumed that these songs would be recorded for a third Weezer album, and shortly thereafter, when referencing the songs, labeled them the "Summer Songs of 2000" (commonly abbreviated as SS2K).
