We checked it out yesterday. My wife was actually curious about the band used in the video, because one of the kids from Stranger Things leads it. I said the same thing about the song, it's not a cover, it's a copy. Covers are supposed to either reflect style of the band redoing it, or reimagine the original in some significant way. I've never listened to Weezer, and Mrs. Beans had to find me a couple of songs I finally recognized. Meh.
But that's what led me to the young guitar player and the video I posted in the other thread. She's a badass.
