"Photograph" is the 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, rather than "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.
