There are probably some posts going around with people saying what they would wanna see on a greatest hits, but I wanna put my own and I'm too lazy to go through the whole forum to check out one post. So I know a greatest hits list is pretty generic, and I'll post what a generic list would look like.

Generic

1. Undone (The Sweater Song)
2. Buddy Holly
3. Say It Ain't So
4. El Scorcho
5. The Good Life
6. Pink Triangle
7. Hash Pipe
8. Island in the Sun
9. Photograph
10. Dope Nose
11. Keep Fishin'
12. Beverly Hills
13. We Are All On Drugs
14. Perfect Situation
15. Pork and Beans
16. Troublemaker
17. (If You're Wondering If I Want You To) I Want You To
18. I'm Your Daddy
19 Memories

now... this is generic, and would irritate me if released, but I guess most people would have backlash to it as well. Anyways, what i want is to see what you guys would want on a greatest hits. It has to be something that was originally released on an album or a bside to that album.. deluxe edition songs count. here's what I want..

Seriously? Why even waste the brain power on this? A greatest hits package isn't given much thought. It simply re-packages all the songs that were hits and sometimes includes a few bonus tracks so that die-hard fans will buy it.
Let's keep in mind that greatest hits sets are generally not relevant for diehard fans. Casual fans who might have bought 1-2 Weezer albums or those that just liked the singles on the radio might buy this and don't care for rarities and b-sides etc. They want to sing along with Undone and HashPipe and they'll be happy with that. I wouldn't touch this greatest hits thing unless they threw in something amazing and I don't see why they would.
My Name is Jonas
Holiday
Say It Ain't So
Undone
Mykel and Carli
Paperface
Lullaby for Wayne

El Scorcho
Good Life
Across the Sea
Tired of Sex
You Gave Your Love to Me Softly

Trouble Maker
The Greatest Man Who Ever lived
Dream'in

(Maybes)
Pork And Beans- it loses its touch after a couple listens, I know simple is good sometimes, just it was too simple
Buddy Holly- its a great song, just never really liked it that much
King- Scott, nice vocals, but I can only hear you sing for so long
Thought I Knew- Another song, pretty good just not compared to say it aint so
Want You To- Catchy, but not weezer
Memories- Its just too structured,verse-chorus-verse-chorus-bridge-chorus, its not a bad song, just a boring song I guess...all weezer songs seem to fit into this category now a days...i miss guitar solos, and groovy break downs we

(Confused)
Island In the Sun- Really over hyped....I don't understand it...its not that good
Make Believe- Song Writing...uhhhhhhhhhhh
Maladroit- uhhhhhhhhhh
Rapitude and Hurley- Great singles but then uhhhhhhhhhhh
Represent- This one is complete trash, who would ever put this on their list


And yes I do realize I'm heavily biased on the Blue Pink and Red albums.
In some far off future, a retrospective greatest hits might be:

Undone
Buddy Holly
Say it Ain't So
Suzanne
You gave your love to me softly
No other one
Pink Triangle
Good Life
American Girls
Pork and Beans
The Greatest Man Who Ever Lived
The Prettiest Girl in the Whole Wide World
All My Friends are Insects
Ok- sorry to disagree, but how can you be on a =w= fansite if you only like Blue, Pinkerton and Red? Yes, they are three awesome albums but real =w= fans can pick songs off every album. I am not a huge Maladroit fan but I love Slave, Burnt Jamb and Keep Fishin'. As for Make Believe... yeah I didn't like Beverly Hills but My Best Friend, The Other Way and Haunt You Everyday? Classic. Plus Crab- not too bad either. You just have to listen again, look at some of our favorites off these other albums and try it out. You think you like Weezer? Immerse yourself in it for a while...you will appreciate it more.

This should be everyone's Greatest Hits list.

This is probably realistic as far as greatest hits go without including all singles

Buddy Holly
Undone -- The Sweater Song
Say it Ain't So
El Scorcho
Hash Pipe
Island in the Sun
Dope Nose
Keep Fishin'
Beverly Hills
Perfect Situation
Troublemaker
Pork and Beans
(If You're Wondering If I Want You To) I Want You To
Memories



But if they really dilluted it...

Buddy Holly
Undone -- The Sweater Song
Say it Ain't So
El Scorcho
Hash Pipe
Island in the Sun
Beverly Hills
Perfect Situation
Pork and Beans
(If You're Wondering If I Want You To) I Want You To
Anything, so long as you include "I Just Threw Out the Love of My Dreams".
THE DEFINITIVE AND NON-CONTROVERSIAL GREATEST HITS

1. The World Has Turned and Left Me Here
2. Buddy Holly
3. Undone
4. Suzanne
5. Getchoo
6. The Good Life
7. No Other One
8. Knockdown Dragout
9. Photograph
10. Island in the Sun
11. American Gigolo
12. Take Control
13. This is Such a Pity
14. Perfect Situation
15. Pardon Me
16. Pig
17. King
18. Spider
19. I'm Your Daddy
20. The Girl Got Hot
21. I Don't Want to Let You Go

OMG is Hurley missing? Too stinking bad.

disk 3 x

The only way we'd get anything other than hits is if they do what Incubus did. One disk of the hits and the second is b-sides and unreleased tracks.

This would be a pretty rough setlist for me. I could not think of a bigger letdown than ending a Weezer show with "Represent." And for having 27 songs, it's pretty darn light on the Pink. Opening with Greatest Man would be so sweet, though.

When I finally get to see Weezer, this would be the most amazing setlist imaginable D:
