Toto Is Going To Cover Weezer!

As you know Weezer covered Toto's classic "Africa" and it's been been blasting out of every speaker since. Turns out Toto has decided to return the favor! Toto drummer Steve Porcaro recently said in an interview  "You know, we listened to ‘Beverly Hills.’ I wanted to maybe even do a real ‘Africa’-type version of that, I was thinking about for a minute. But you know what? We wanted to make it different, but we wanted to do something rock ‘n’ roll. I wanted to show everyone what a good rock ‘n’ roll band we can be. I love the band. I love their music. [Lead singer] Joseph [Williams] and I were listening to different ones trying to figure out which ones he’d like to sing and we settled on ‘Hash Pipe.'”

So what did they think of Weezer's take on their song? "Our music has such little nuance. We spent so much meticulous time. These guys stood this sh*t up in an afternoon. And let’s face it: they kicked a** on it. I think Rivers has a great voice. And the way they did the harmonies with the auto-tune in there which gave it a kitschy thing. I didn’t know if I was gonna like it or not. I thought they were going to make fun of us.”
