I'm seeing them for the first time this April. I am a complete n00b.  I know very little of their music.

Anyone have any suggestions what I should start with as far as getting familiar with them?

my favorite studio album is The Mollusk, it spans through a lot of the genres they touch.
12 Golden country greats is their cowboy country song album which is different and awesome as well.
If you want to dive straight into the brownness put on GodWeenSatan or The Pod.

Pure Guava for weird Ween, White Pepper for "normal" Ween.

Hard to go wrong with any Ween, but I'd start with Chocolate & Cheese and Quebec.

These would be my go tos.
that's great. people are stupid.

My records are my media for music. They are to be played. Loud and as often as possible.

Third'd.

Also, 12 Golden Country Greats. And The Mollusk...

Actually, start with Chocolate and Cheese and we'll lead you from there.

I'm also quite a big fan of Shinola Vol. 1.

Outside of  :phish: and :syf:, Ween is my absolute favorite.

My favorite albums:

The Mollusk
White Pepper
12 Golden Country Greats

Chocolate and Cheese is a good introduction album, though.
To know me is to know my love of Phish.  :smoke:

WEEN is a tough band to get into I think. You really have to be is a state of mind that's ready for something super weird. They have songs that are flat out stupid, but they have lot's of Phishy type lyrical songs which is what I like about them. The Mollusk is a great studio album to start with. Live is Chicago kicks ass.

This video changed me

As a friend once aptly described them, "Ween is like listening to the best and most hilarious mixtape [or CD or playlist, depending on your age] you've ever made."

There are SO many B-sides/unreleased stuff that is AMAZING too.

Some of my favorites, and not just for unreleased stuff, but out of all their material:
