On a previous episode of FERG BLURBS, we brought you the news that Weezer had covered not one, but TWO songs by the band Toto. More specifically, the iconic alternative rockers gave their takes on both "Rosanna" and the timeless "Africa," all at the behest of a social media campaign to make them do just that. 

And so, Toto took that in stride...and began crafting their response.

The band members re-emerged last week on the World Famous KROQ in Los Angeles and had a lengthy interview with on-air personality Stryker, in which the band talked about their reactions to Weezer's cover, and how they planned on responding. If you're interested, definitely listen to it here.

But, in the course of that interview, Toto revealed that they would indeed cover a song by Weezer, and it would be the band's 2001 hit from their Green Album: Hash Pipe.

We're still a few weeks away from the official release of their cover, but Toto couldn't help themselves, and they decided to debut their cover LIVE in Vancouver. So, without further adieu...give it a look/listen!

What'd you think?
