An artist needs to sell one million albums to go platinum. It took Weezer 20 years to earn a platinum certification for Pinkerton from the Recording Industry Association Of America. Their sophomore release was not their most popular album following the pop rock sounds of The Blue Album. I recommend giving this album another listen to though. It’s really one of their best.
Its about time, 8 days shy of 20 years. Thanks to all 1 million of you in the US and A and the many more #acrossthesea worldwide who bought it and loved it. Congrats Rivers @rivers_cuomo Brian @trelationship, Pat @pat_tsg @_mattsharp - and @sgs711 for rocking its jams correctly since '01, surely your live efforts played a major role in spreading this slice of gospel for the last 15 years of the 20.
