Mr. Weezer and Mr. Office cover “One of Us”

Rivers Cuomo (Weezer) and Rainn Wilson (The Office) covered Joan Osbourne’s 90’s mega-hit “One of Us.” Looks like Rainn wasn’t just acting in his recent comedy, “The Rocker.” You can view the video from Stereogum.com in our Fetched Videos.

Here’s a link to the mp3 from Stereogum.com (right click and “save link as”):
Rivers Cuomo Rainn Wilson-One of Us

The two met up to record a take on Joan Osbourne’s “One Of Us” to be premiered as part of a countdown/takeover show hosted by Jason Schwarzman on Sirius Satellite Radio’s Alt Nation station, kicking off tonight and extending into the weekend. It’s set to premiere on Sirius tomorrow, except that video of the encounter is right here.

First let me say that I loved that version of “One of Us”. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Second though, I have to disagree Tim. Rainn hardly does anything worth getting excited about. I was all pumped to hear him sing…

Why is he even mentioned as being part of the cover, just cause he is famous I guess…? It should maybe be Rivers Cuomo, Rainn Wilson and a couple others guys you don’t know so they’re not worth mentioning, cover “One of Us”. I think Rainn is actually a musician, but I’d like to see him do something a little more in the forefront.
