I've never heard of an album having B sides. What's the source of this listing? -Acjelen 15:42, 5 April 2006 (UTC)

I believe that a B-side is the flip side of a phonographic record. So on the The Green Album record, all the songs listed as 'B-sides' are ones that are on the other side of the record, but is not included on the cd. I don't know why, or how exactly it works. That's just the definition. MastaShake1108 03:42, 18 July 2006 (UTC)
The article doesn't bother to explain that the list is of B-sides from the singles released off the album. Dyaimz 21:46, 8 October 2007 (UTC)

Skankin' Picke[edit]

This page is linked from the Skankin' Pickle page, since they also have a Green Album. Shouldn't they also be included on here? McFlynnTHM 21:28, 8 October 2007 (UTC)

Matt Sharp[edit]

I went ahead and deleted the part about many fans seeing Matt Sharp as an important contributer to the band's early song. Some fans do think this, but they are incorrect, and it is misleading to include it here. I also deleted the part about Sharp suing the band over royalties for earlier songs, as it is completely irrelevant. Pkmntrainerred (talk) 01:55, 6 September 2008 (UTC)


Anyone know how this came to be called "The Green Album" when its got a yellow cover? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 19:35, 13 September 2008 (UTC)

No, the cover is definitely light green. Pkmntrainerred (talk) 01:02, 15 September 2008 (UTC)

Artwork: Band name typography[edit]

I just noticed that the letters 'e' and 'r' in the "weezer" font differ from every other album. The r is "complete" and the lower tail of the 'e' is also complete, rather than having a sawed-off edge look. Is there interest enough to mention this? –Kerαunoςcopia 11:12, 6 December 2009 (UTC)

For future purposes...[edit]

Billboard reference to Allmusic[edit]

The Allmusic page linked as reference for the Billboard chart position of the album does not include the "Green Album" (but does contain the Blue and Red albums along with all the others). I'm assuming it did once, hence the link, but now what? -- J. Wong (talk) 06:41, 19 August 2011 (UTC)

Transparent CD tray[edit]

It states this album was Weezer's first to feature a transparent CD tray, but every copy I have seen of it in shops such as HMV here in the UK have featured black ones. I wondered if this was a region specific thing?--TangoTizerWolfstone (talk) 20:47, 29 March 2015 (UTC)
