“Paranoid Android” gets covered again … and again …

Did Weezer start this “Paranoid Android” cover madness? Not sure why, but as of late this song has been popping up all over the place including a pretty cool YouTube mashup version where dozens of people recorded themselves playing the song and then somebody taking bits and pieces of each performance and making one video out of it.

A few weeks ago I checked out Matthew Mayfield as he kicked off a short run of tour dates in Columbus, Ohio (drove 12 hours from Alabama just to play the show) but he didn’t cover “Paranoid Android” that night – didn’t even know he had it in his back pocket. But, here is his pretty faithful-to-the-original version.
