Question Pictures of strange lawn weed - can anybody ID?

This "grassy" weed has begun growing in one of my lawns, and is rapidly spreading. For clarification, I am in the northeast US. Can anybody give me a clue as to what it is, and how to treat it (lawn weed killers have NOT worked).

Thank you!

Looks to be Nutsedge? I don't think regular herbicide will kill it. Try sedgehammer.

Tough stuff!

Another weed,

Thanks everybody for the suggestions! Here's another weed that I've had trouble treating. Does anybody have an idea as to the name of this one?

Thank you!

Last one looks like an amaranth (pigweed).
