The Twitter-sphere and really all of the internet has been pressuring Weezer and Rivers Cuomo to play Toto's "Africa" - yuck I say. One of my least favorite songs ever. so in my opinion Rivers made the best call he could and hopefully appeased the trolls out there enough to keep them silent.
Here's the skinny-
Rivers has played a million cover songs over the years. He's a HUGE music fan (of all types) and he showcases his appreciation by breaking into an often surprising cover (and quite honestly most often slaying it). Recently, he played a boatload of covers when he did a 27-song set last month in Chicago, but instead of caving on the internet’s lobbying for him to cover Toto's "Africa" he did a pretty brilliant in-your-face-trolls move...Weezer covered Toto’s other hit single, “Rosanna”, and although not everyone appreciated it (I sure did) ALL agree it's a pretty f**king AWESOME cover!!
