Hey, ‘member last year when Weezer put out a cover of Toto’s “Africa” after being bugged to do it by a twitter account?

Well, it was so successful that they decided to suprise-release an entire cover album. It’s a very “middle-aged karaoke” selection of songs, and they’re all recreated rather faithfully, just with fuzzier guitars and punchier drums (and Rivers Cuomo’s voice). One of the songs that got the most buzz is TLC’s “No Scrubs.” Well, here it is.

It’s an interesting time for cover albums, what with this Weezer Teal Album and Jonathan Coulton’s Kickstarted Some Guys cover album of 70s soft rock. Take a look at the promo for that one.

You have partaken and enjoyed!
