Weezer’s ‘Van Weezer’ Debuts at No. 1 on Top Rock, Alternative Albums Charts

Concurrently, Van Weezer debuts at No. 1 on Top Album Sales, the band’s first leader on the list after it previously peaked at No. 2 three times (2005’s Make Believe and the aforementioned White and Teal albums). On the Billboard 200, the new set starts at No. 11, Weezer’s best rank since Teal reached No. 5.

One song from Van Weezer debuts on Hot Rock & Alternative Songs‘ May 22 edition: “All the Good Ones,” at No. 49 with 1.1 million U.S. streams. It was preceded by a pair of Van Weezer singles, “The End of the Game” and “Hero,” which peaked at Nos. 9 and 17 in November 2019 and May 2020, respectively.

Van Weezer is Weezer’s second full-length released in 2021, following OK Human, which debuted at No. 5 on Alternative Albums and No. 6 on Top Rock Albums in February. Van Weezer was initially scheduled for a May 2020 release but was delayed as the band’s Hella Mega Tour with Green Day and Fall Out Boy was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
