The riff-heavy track is transformed into a piano ballad, led by frontman Rivers Cuomo. Later in the performance, Cuomo is joined by other members Pat Wilson, Brian Bell and Scott Shriner, appearing on screen over his shoulder.

Weezer released “Hero” back in May, as a tribute to essential workers during the COVID-19 crisis. “Hero” is the the newest release from the upcoming album Van Weezer, which was supposed to arrive in May, but has since been delayed to the coronavirus. Additional tracks from the album include “The End of the Game” and “Blue Dream”.
