Yacht Rock royalty went alternative the other night, when TOTO did WEEZER’s “Hash Pipe” during a show in Canada.

After Weezer covered both “Africa” and “Rosanna”, Toto announced they would return the favor by recording their own version of “Hash Pipe”.  It’s a controversial choice, since it was inspired by a real-life transvestite prostitute in Santa Monica.

But Toto chose it because they wanted to do something, quote, “rock ‘n’ roll.”  They road-tested their version Monday night during their gig in Vancouver, and it actually rocks.

Before launching into the song, singer STEVE LUKATHER said, quote, “We figured since we were smoking hash since before they were born, that’s the one we should do.”
