Weezer appeared on The Kelly Clarkson Show to celebrate 30 years of the band’s self-titled debut, commonly referred to as The Blue Album. Released May 10, 1994, The Blue Album was produced by Ric Ocasek of The Cars and features the hit singles “Buddy Holly,” “Undone—The Sweater Song,” and “Say It Ain’t So.”

Weezer joined Clarkson and house musicians My Band Y’all to perform “Say It Ain’t So” for a special edition of the show’s recurring segment Kellyoke. As Weezer cranked up the guitars, Clarkson and vocalist Rivers Cuomo traded verses. “I’ve literally never been cool in my life until now,” Clarkson declared afterwards.

Cuomo and Patrick Wilson later sat down with Clarkson and guest Brooke Shields to discuss the 30th anniversary of The Blue Album and their upcoming North American tour, “Voyage to the Blue Planet.” Clarkson recalled seeing Weezer perform live years ago, noting that “You put on a hell of a show, I’m just saying.” For her part, Shields got sentimental as she recalled playing Weezer on the way to the studio that morning. The group discussed the origins of the band’s name, early influences, their first gig opening for Keanu Reeves’ band Dogstar. The lighthearted segment also touched on pickleball and Shields’ and Cuomo’s individual performances in Grease. “This is literally my favorite panel we’ve ever had,” Clarkson said with a laugh at the end.

In case you missed it, Weezer was also featured in a recent installment of Vevo’s Footnotes series, which went behind-the-scenes of the group’s “Buddy Holly” music video, which was directed by Spike Jonze and used actual footage from the ’70s show Happy Days.
