Taking Back Sunday Release Cover Of Weezer’s “My Name Is Jonas”


Taking Back Sunday have released a cover of “My Name Is Jonas“, the opening track to Weezer‘s 3x multi-platinum 1994 self-titled debut album. Taking Back Sunday bassist Shaun Cooper commented of their take on the track:

“In 2019 we were on tour… a lot! Over time soundcheck got pretty laborious. One day before a show in Cincinnati, OH somebody started playing the opening chords to ‘My Name is Jonas‘… We all grew up listening to Weezer. Playing this song together was so much fun and broke up the monotony of day to day touring life. We started adding the song to our set list and recorded it on a day off in Buffalo NY. We love this song and we hope our rendition does it justice.”
