When I first read about this I thought it was a little odd. But when I heard it I think they did a really.good job and didn't stray too much from the original.

Did you read the whole back-story on why they did this cover?

I'm not sure why, but their fans have been asking them to record a cover of 'Africa' by Toto. Social media campaigns, shouting it out live, on-line petitions, the whole 'magilla.

So Weezer responded by covering Toto's 'Rosanna'. Classic! Laughing very hard

Why Africa? It's a great song, but I don't see why Weezer fans insisted for them to cover it. Strange request...

That just sounds like a bar band.

If I read correctly, it goes something like this...

A 14-year old Weezer fan heard the song 'Africa' while watching the Netflix show 'Stranger Things'. She went on Facebook or Twitter or something and requested Weezer to cover it. Other fans picked up on it and it just became a "thing".

While I'd love to make fun of that and stupid millennials, I seem to remember a few older, seemingly more mature group of gentlemen starting a campaign to get a certain hair-band to address a hot dog jingle they did some time ago...

Never underestimate the power of a 14 year old girl and her social media account.

Not bad. I'm a big Weezer fan, or maybe was I guess, I still haven't bought the newest album cause I haven't heard one song on it I'd like. I'm waiting for a Eyesore 99 cent deal on that one hahaha!

Is there a point to these Toto covers?

They sound basically like the originals so it's not like Weezer is re-interpreting them or anything.† I've always felt that if a band isn't going to "re-imagine" a song then why bother covering it.

And if it's just a response to social media crap then that means I officially add Weezer to my "Don't Bother With This Band" list because that's just pathetic.
