The band is known for their love for Japan, and to our surprise they sang the song in Japanese!

In fact the wife of the vocalist of the band is Japanese.

In case you don’t know about Weezer, these are the best hits of the band. Probably you’ve heard the songs once or twice before?

Actually it’s not rare that Weezer covers Japanese songs. Needless to say, it’s nothing new that western bands (i.e. Green Day) cover Japanese songs.
