Post #191: Weezer - "Paranoid Android" (Radiohead cover) and "Brain Stew" (Green Day cover)

Post #191:  After actively using Twitter for the last month or so, I have fallen in love with it.  Since I don't have time to surf the internet all day for music news, Twitter has been a great resource.  Being able to follow my favorite artists, other music bloggers, magazines and other music press outlets, allows me to see news and information that I would otherwise miss.

That is how I came to find out about Weezer covering Radiohead's "Paranoid Android".  I absolutely love this cover!

If you are unfamiliar with this song, you can find it on my favorite Radiohead album, their 1997 release, OK Computer.

The timing of this video is perfect as it was just announced that Weezer will be stopping by the Minnesota State Fair on September 3rd.  Tickets go on sale Friday, June 10th.

Looking into things a little further, you can find Weezer doing some other great covers including one of my favorite Green Day songs, Brain Stew.

Late this last year, Weezer was pretty busy releasing their 8th album entitled Hurley, as well as a compilation entitled Death to False Metal, which was made up of tracks throughout the bands career that never made the cut on previous albums.
