Yellowcard covered "Good Riddance" once, but it has never been published and they only played it at one concert or so. Unfortunately, I can't find a video of it (at least in a good quality). Too bad, would have been awesome to listen to my third favourite band covering my number one favourite band :D

I don't think I've ever heard a cover of a GD song that I actually like, which is ashame. Some cover songs are just amazing.

You won't need to physically harm yourself if you keep quoting videos.

Israel made some AMAZING music. He's one of my all-time favorite artists :)

no, it was actually one of their songs, but it kinda sounds like it I guess

Bowling for soup did a cover on Stuart and the ave.

That was a hell of a cover, I wish the video was better quality

Rancid's awesome. They also cover Knowledge at a lot of their shows, just like Green Day. ;)

Even got to play in front of Tre Cool, the drummer for Green Day, which was a thrill for all of them!

Florence and the machine have some old Green Day covers out there, which are cool.  Particularly their take on Platypus (I Hate You).

I'd love to hear Florence sing that last verse in her typical baroque pop pseudo-operatic style. That would literally make my life.

So I found the aforementioned Florence cover of Platypus. She recorded the entirety of Nimrod acoustic with Lightspeed Champion in 2007. The quality is pretty bad as it was just recorded with a laptop microphone, but the last verse is as awesome as I suspected.

 

 

 

Redundant is magical.

 

Also Scattered. Love it.

 

And All The Time.

 

There's Worry Rock as well. That's all I can find, but I'll try and dig the others out.
