Start of with some of the popular stuff, Buddy holly, Island in the Sun, Pork and Beans. Then show them some music videos because Weezer has the best music videsos ever. This way they can see what Weezer is really made of.
I'd go with
But then I guess it all depends on the person I'm introducing them to. If they are into Sarah McLachlan, I'm more likely to put on 'Island in The Sun' than 'Dope Nose.' Nahmeen?
I'd show them Only in Dreams / Island in the Sun / Perfect Situation.
i guess i'd start with hits like maybe "buddy holly" and "perfect situation" and "island in the sun" and be like "oh, you think those are good? wait til you hear something off pinkerton"...
awesome thread title, by the way.
LMAO Me too

Thread title literally made me say "...What?" aloud.
The Sweater Song worked for me.
And I got my dad with Say it Ain't So.
it really depends who it is I guess. And luckily, Weezer's got something to offer fans of most anything.
I have a lot of notches on my Weezer bedpost...
(...wait a sec, that metaphor isn't working out so well any more.)
Anyway, I usually start with Blue, although I was de-Weezer-virginized with Green, oddly enough (I think Maladroit was the latest release at the time?) It was a burned CD, and I was 16 and an idiot and so I colored the top of it with a green crayon...
After a few tracks from that, I started downloading whatever had a fun looking title, and I got into a lot of Pinkerton/B-sides that way--El Scorcho, Tired of Sex, The Good Life, Burndt Jam, Dope Nose, etc.
