Back in the 80s, Toto was reviled by alt-rock types for their corporate rock-ness. Over the years, though, some of their material has undergone some critical re-evaluation, especially their 1982 hit, “Africa” from Toto IV.
More than 35 years later, the song has enjoyed a major renaissance with streams exploding. Weezer fans noticed this and inexplicably began demanding that the band cover it. Instead, Weezer decided they’d rather do “Rosanna,” another hit from the album. Nice job, too.
