One girl on Twitter has launched a band covering a band and that band covering the other band. Confused? The story so far…
A Twitter user started a campaign asking the band Weezer to record a cover of the Toto song, “Africa.”
#WeezerCoverAfrica will happen one day…

Months later, Weezer replied by covering Toto’s song “Rosanna” instead. We all had a laugh.
Then a couple days later made the internet happy with a cover of “Africa.”
Toto was flattered enough by the attention to promise they would cover a Weezer song in response. They debuted a live version of “Hash Pipe” a couple weeks ago.
Just to make it even more strange, Weezer was joined on stage by guest “Weird Al” Yankovic to perform “Africa.”
And now… the official studio release of “Hash Pipe” by Weezer, as covered by Toto is available worldwide!
Wow, this has been exhausting!
Oh, and on a side note, 311 and The Offspring covered each others songs this summer because they’re touring together. What’s next??
