8. "Island in the Sun"
At the turn of the millennium, not many people were predicting a Weezer comeback. The group had been completely off the grid since they essentially disbanded after the commercial failure of Pinkerton in 1996. But Rivers Cuomo still had a lot of songs in him, and the group wisely teamed up with The Blue Album producer Ric Ocasek for their third album. He helped them craft a group of sunny songs that touched a nerve with old school Weezer fans and a younger generation just learning about the group. The album's second single, "Island in the Sun," became a huge radio and MTV hit. The group even reunited with "Buddy Holly" director Spike Jonze for the video. To this day, it remains a highlight of their live show.
