Iconic band Weezer melted our hearts when they entered the stage in the 90s and cemented their title as one of the nerdiest bands in history. Yes, they’re geeks. But that’s their appeal and with songs such as ‘Buddy Holly’ and ‘Beverly Hills’ who’s complaining?

Weezer have made a whole bunch of our slideshows before, last but not least when they offered their own version of the snuggie which we featured in Weird Band Merch. But we thought it might be time to take a step back and have a look at something Weezer have been doing for years. Yes, we’re looking at the best covers Weezer has ever performed. Sure, it’s silly and nerdy. But we can’t think of a more fitting tribute.

Weezer have covered some great artists, but what about hearing some covers of Weezer's songs? Jack Daniel’s think they have the answer and are thrilled to be welcoming American pop-punksters Good Charlotte to Australian shores as they headline the next set of The JD set shows in November. Undoubtedly one of the most successful and popular bands in pop-punk they'll be coming to Australia armed with their twist on a Weezer classic, playing the songs of Weezer's 1994 classic 'The Blue Album' with hit singles such as 'Undone – The Sweater Song' and 'Buddy Holly'. Find out more information and the dates here. Jack Daniels have also very kindly given us a few double passes to giveaway to some of our readers so jump to it and enter here!
