For months a young teenager on Twitter hassled Weezer to cover the 1982 hit ‘Africa’ by Toto. The fan, @weezerafrica has been trolling them about it since December, tweeting things like ‘it’s about time you bless the rains down in africa’. Lots of other Weezer fans then jumped on the Toto bandwagon.

Finally on Tuesday, the band released the song and a meme to respond to the teenager. Just another reason Weezer is awesome.

The tweets which followed on Twitter were hysterical.
