Paranoid Android covered by really cool 90s band

In my alternative reality version of the present Weezer are a really cool band from the 90s who went out on a high after recording Pinkerton. Sadly, in the real world, they’ve recorded four forgettable albums since Pinkerton. Or maybe five. I don’t know.

This cover of Radiohead’s Paranoid Android from the cool 90s band Weezer is pretty awesome.

Here’s some vintage Weezer.

Nathan runs St Eutychus. He loves Jesus. His wife. His daughter. His son. His other daughter. His dog. Coffee. And the Internet. He is the pastor of City South Presbyterian Church, a church in Brisbane, a graduate of Queensland Theological College (M. Div) and the Queensland University of Technology (B. Journ). He spent a significant portion of his pre-ministry-as-a-full-time-job life working in Public Relations, and now loves promoting Jesus in Brisbane and online. He can't believe how great it is that people pay him to talk and think about Jesus. If you'd like to support his writing financially you can do that by giving to his church.

  1. Yep, Weezer were one of the greats at the top of their game. Pinkerton is easily in my all time top 10 albums. Goes to show that a person (Rivers) can’t be amazingly creative and cool forever.

    Funny that you put two Blue Album songs up. I reckon their best film clip, which strangely came on teh Windows 95 installation CD, is Buddy Holly (also fro Blue Album).

  2. (In the Radiohead cover) Who’s playing drums? Pretty sure that’s Pat (drummer) playing guitar.

  3. Call me a purist, but River is at his best when he’s doing his own stuff. His voice just didn’t hack the range of PA.
