RNR News and Notes

Weezer made their way onto the Billboard Hot 100 for the first time in almost a decade back in June, reaching No. 89 with their long-awaited cover of Toto’s karaoke classic “Africa.”

 

Toto has since returned the favor, recording a cover of Weezer’s 2001 single “Hash Pipe.”

 

“We figured since we were smoking hash since before they were born, that’s the one we should do” said front man Steve Lukather before going into the song during the band’s Monday night performance in Vancouver.

 

A studio version of the cover is set for release on August 10th.
