Want to hear Weezer cover Michael Jackson, Tears For Fears and TLC?  Yeah you do!

You have a new album to listen to leading up to the Weezer / Pixies concert at Van Andel Arena on March 20th.  Before you enjoy a handful of 80's and 90's covers Weezer's "The Teal Album" which drops on March 1st, here a little background.

This whole thing began when Weezer Trolled a fan on the internet.  Someone created the twitter handle @WeezerAfrica with the name "weezer cover africa by toto."  Then started begging the band to cover the song.  Weezer responded by covering a different song by Toto, "Rosanna."  Then a week later they recorded the song that would become their biggest hit ever, "Africa."

At Midnight 1/24/19 nine songs from the new Weezer album were uploaded to youtube with the following description:
