History of the song:

Original Release 1968
Album: Music from Big Pink

It is one of the group's best known songs and among the most popular songs of the late 1960s counterculture.
The Band's version is an excellent example of a silent title record, one in which the title never appears in the lyrics. While the names of the five members of The Band appear on the record label, "The Band" does not.
The song "The Weight" is part of the The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's 500 Songs that Shaped Rock and Roll list.
It is also #41 in Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Songs of All Time list.
