Toto covers Weezer’s “Hash Pipe”

Let’s face it, Toto and Weezer haven’t been relevant to me, personally, for a very long time. I did, however, love Weezer’s Blue album, Pinkerton, and the Green albums…after that, I mostly tuned out. So, while I originally scoffed at Weezer’s cover of Toto’s “Africa“, I couldn’t help but enjoy the Toto tit-for-tat cover of Weezer’s “Hash Pipe“, a long-time favorite track of mine.

Toto keyboardist, Steve Porcaro discussed the cover:

“We wanted to do our thing to it, but still pay respect to it. And we added a couple of our kitschy little things to it, which I hope that they laugh [at]. We wish we could be in the room when they hear it.”
