(Gibson) Weezer recently recorded their version of State Farm's famous jingle and posted it on their website. According to Spinner.com, Weezer's website reported that when they were "…setting up The Memories tour, the good people at State Farm asked the band, 'Would you sing our jingle for us?' Weezer then asked if the jingle was from a whole song, and if anyone recorded it lately. So State Farm went back to their headquarters to find out the answers."

When the insurance company found the original sheet music for "Like a Good Neighbor" – a song Barry Manilow had written when he was first starting out – Weezer decided it was a great song and they should cover it.

"Rivers looked over the sheet music and said, 'This is a great song; we should record the whole thing.' So the band went into the studio and had a lot of fun rocking out with Mr. Manilow's tune, hoping he would be proud of the results." more on this story
