EXCLUSIVE: Weezer Covers "This Is IU" For Indiana Record Store Day

After the January release of the American rock band's cover album, Weezer (also known as the Teal Album), Weezer will be releasing their newest addition to their repertoire of covers. With the work that they did (or didn't do) on hit classic "No Scrubs," we can only imagine how the unofficial Indiana University anthem will sound coming from Rivers Cuomo's voice. To refresh, we have added the lyrics below in case you are unfamiliar.

Big Ten, who's your daddy? No really, Hoosier daddy?
Yeah, your schools coming up short, Bilbo Baggins
I know you wish you had it, but you ain't though
We just crossed ya over, broke your ankles
The real Assembly Hall, no Illinois, about to explode
Biggest student section in the nation, bringing that racket like McEnroe
Got a Cuban with Mark Cuban, this just in:
Another top recruit committed, while you rotten like P-U!

Cause this is Indiana, yeah we do it big
Bossin' on the Big Ten you know what it is
Cause this is I-U, U, U
This is I-U, U, U
We got banners on the wall
And this is how we ball
Talking about the Hoo-Hoo-siers
Talking about the Hoo-Hoo-siers

Unlike you other schools, we got history
Kinda like your girl does when she visits uh, me
Oh my I can't see because the trophy case be shining
And my optometrist told me not to look
Cause I could go blind, even better I could taste it
Follow Tom Crean, he gon' take us back to greatness
Face it, embrace it, like it's 76
Them little Wolverines probably gonna hate this


One banner, two banner, three banner, four
Five banner, sixth banner knockin' on your door
Cause' Indiana basketball is hustling on the floor
And running up the score (run, running up the score)
If you a B-town girl put your hands up
If you a B-town boy put your hands up
If you an alumni put your hands up
If you an Indiana Hoosier put your hands up
Now put your hands up, now put your hands up!
