Watch Weezer team up with Tears For Fears to perform ‘Everybody Wants To Rule The World’

Dream team

Weezer have performed ‘Everybody Wants to the Rule the World’ with Tears For Fears on the latest episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live. 

The American band, who had invited the English duo to play the song with them prior to Fallon’s show at Coachella festival, were seemingly keen to relive the moment in covering Tears For Fear’s 1985 hit. Watch below.

The group had other guests join them for their Coachella performance during the festival’s first weekend (April 12-14) including TLC’s Chilli Thomas for a collaborative rendition of her band’s song ‘No Scrubs’.

Weezer have been experimenting with covers in recent months. In March, the band released ‘The Black Album’, which is a collection of new and original material.

Back in January, they shared a pure covers record in the form of ‘The Teal Album’, which features their take on ‘Everybody Wants to the Rule the World’.

The LA band were last year targeted in an online fan campaign that asked them to cover Toto’s 1982 classic ‘Africa’ after they had initially suggested the idea. The group eventually obliged.

Weezer return to Coachella this weekend (April 19-21) before they begin a tour across Europe in June and July. They also perform at a number of festivals including NOS Alive (July 11) and Summer Sonic (August 16), and join the Foo Fighters in Latin America this autumn.
