Weezer returned on Saturday after playing the festival for the first time in 14 years. Although their setlist focused heavily on the biggest successes of their careers, Rivers Cuomo and Co. had a few tricks up their sleeves.
At the beginning, Weezer brought tears to her fears for a joint performance of the last wave's New Wave hit: "Everyone wants to rule the world." Later they were supported by TLCs Chilli for "No Scrubs". Then Weezer closed the set with his top cover of Totos "Africa".
All three songs appear on Weezer's latest cover LP The Teal Album which preceded the release of The Black Album a collection of new and original material.
At Coachella, Weezer also played a barbershop quartet version of her own Beverly Hills, as well as fan favorites such as Buddy Holly, Hash Pipe, El Scorcho, and Island in the Sun. Take a look at the footage of her set below.
