Weezer’s been tweeting hints about a Cars cover for the Cars 2 soundtrack for weeks now, but this one came with no advanced warning. It’s the band covering Radiohead’s “Paranoid Android” in the studio and doing a darn fine job. It doesn’t differ a ton from the original, but Weezer’s power-pop sheen does the OK Computer cut justice.
No word as to why they released this, but we’re glad they did. Surely this hints at more, though, since you don’t produce such a well-recorded and professionally-filmed cover for the hell of it. Check it out below.
