Default Weezer accept a twitter request and cover Toto's Africa

lol gotta love when Weezer drops a surprise out of nowhere.

"It all started when a 14-year-old Cleveland resident named Mary created a Twitter profile dedicated solely to getting Rivers Cuomo and co. to cover the 1982 megahit.

Hundreds of tweets containing a #WeezerCoverAfrica hashtag were sent by the appropriately titled @weezerafrica account, and the campaign received plenty of press from music media outlets like Noisey."


Billy Corgan, TAKE NOTES

this is awesome

Don't know if you guys ever saw this, it's some years old now, but since y'all talk about RH so much, you might get a kick out of this. This rocks

I like Weezer and all, but jesus fuck fuzzy, do you ever get tired of posting about the same four fucking tired 90s acts? Get yourself a damn Spotify account and branch the fuck out already.

Spotify is actually amazing and has changed the way I listen to music. I am now listening to more new music and enjoying more new stuff than I have in literally years and years. I'm pretty sure you can download anything if you have a paid subscription, but I just use free. No reason I have to "own" digital files when they are available instantly for free as well

I would use spotify (and pay for it) if my provider offered unlimited access.

Also I still think it's kind of awkward how people use spotify or pandora to recommend music for them. music is supposed to be an active experience. don't turn it into a passive experience like radio 2.0.

does anybody else go to a restaurant and go "uh gee i dunno just give me what you think is good"? the world is at your fucking fingertips.

you've never asked for a rec at a restaurant?

I don't listen to playlists personalized or not on spotify though, so maybe I agree with you. I have been trying to check out artists I have meant to check out for a long time, or to dig deeper into discographies I'm not super familiar with. OR if I just hear about some artist and want to check them out, spotify makes it MUCH easier than having to search for and torrent an album to see if you like it

I think I'm weird though because I don't like listening to samey music. I might like Sun Kil Moon but if I entered that and let spotify generate a playlist I would probably hate everything it suggested. Just because I like one artist honing in on a particular sound doesn't mean I am interested in hearing other artists do a similar thing.

I have used pandora that way but very quickly I'd wear out the extent in which it could help me

"these are the only 2 bands I know like that dood"

and I don't listen to music as background or car radio, I listen to NPR, music is for bedroom pogo

I still do not really get even paying for spotify. If you listen to music at home, just use your computer and it has basically all the same features for free?

Then why is it always just Guns N Roses, Weezer, Guns N Roses, Green Day, Guns N Roses, and Smashing Pumpkins with you?

Not everyone has the energy to study and seek out new things. And some people prefer the feeding tube radio format (I'm not one of those people). If it's a choice between staying locked up in the same shit from your youth or discovering new things in any way possible, I'd prefer the latter.

I mean, shit, I don't even use Spotify, but I think someone like fuzzy could really benefit from it.

Iunno man, I use Apple Music which does a bloody good job of bringing me good stuff I would otherwise have missed with its weekly algorithm-generated new music playlist. I still go and find stuff for myself but there's a handful of really stellar albums I found through letting a computer recommend me music.

Spotify is garbage. It's pillaging for the artist. One of the top listened songs of the service for the year only netted the artist something like 5000$. Joe Rogan has talked a lot about what a scam it is. And it's obtrusive for the user. Spotify sells all the data to other companies and target users with lots of obtrusive advertising.

I personally don't wanna be a part of solidifying Spotify as a solution for labels. I'd encourage other people not to use it.

Plus, I just like actually having the music, burning CD's, uploading it to a portable device. When listening to an album, it's important to let it simmer and saute with a person. Music has become such a fleeting thing with people and these streaming services. They don't give the music enough of a chance anymore.

It's better to outright boycott major label exploitation than to be a part of normalizing and validating their new monopolies of control.

Plus, I see a lot of shows and buy a lot of merch and vinyl. That's how I show support for artists, by bypassing any of the shenanigans. I don't want no big-brother bullshit selling my music listening habits to corporations while also having their obtrusive advertising shoved down my throat. That's just whack.

Download Soulseek, man. It's sort of a cult program. The format has barely changed since it was introduced way back when, but it's still managed and ran very well. You can find literally anything in seconds and it's all very high quality 320KBPS files. It's got all the new shit instantly. Way better than searching around for torrents.

You can literally type in local bands and they come up on Soulseek. It's great.

You're way off, holmes. You should check my Ipod, I have a ton of shit. A lot of local acts, punk rock, grunge, alt rock, pop-punk, new-wave, 80's romantic hits, 70's soft rock, heavy metal ETC

I'm a very eclectic music fan.
