Video: Rivers Cuomo Covers the Beach Boys

Weezer frontman recorded 'God Only Knows' last month

By |

Weezer frontman Rivers Cuomo has always cited The Beach Boys as one of his biggest influences, and late last month he recorded a solo piano rendition of their 1966 classic "God Only Knows" at his home studio. Cuomo has been on a Beach Boys kick in the last couple years: Selections from SMiLE play before every stop on Weezer's ongoing Memories tour, and he released a cover of The Beach Boys' "Don't Worry Baby" on his 2008 compilation Alone II: The Home Recordings of Rivers Cuomo.
