WATCH: Toto Cover Weezer’s “Hash Pipe” With The Best Reason For Their Song Choice

There are a lot of reasons artists decide to cover a song. Some do it out of respect, some do it for the fans. Weezer, for example, covered Toto’s “Africa” because of a fan’s online plea. However, no one has given as good a reason to cover a song as Toto gave before they covered Weezer’s “Hash Pipe.”

 “We figured since we were smoking hash since before they were born, that’s the one we should do,” Steve Lukather said. “This is our tribute to Weezer, god bless ’em.”
