The Toto/Weezer Cover Battle escalates!

posted by Mike Bell - 

Toto's cover of "Hash Pipe" won't be out until August 10th, but the group played the Weezer song Monday night in Vancouver -- the first date of their North American tour.

Of course this is due to one fan's persistence. Weezer released a cover of Toto's  "Africa" after a teenager pestered the group on Twitter to record the song. The teen, known as @weezerafrica,  started bugging Toto on Twitter in December. The campaign soon had tons of followers. Weezer released a cover of Toto's "Rosanna" on May 24. The teen tweeted, "After months of trolling them, @Weezer trolled me back..."

Which they then followed with Toto's 'Africa'
