I don't think there's a cover they've done that I haven't liked.

I guess my favourite would have to be either I Fought The Law [The Clash], I Don't Wanna Know If You Are Lonely [Huker Du] or Another State of Mind [social Distortion].

The Queen fan in me loves We Are The Champions.

It seems that Green Day are aware of the songs which are most suited for them which is why these covers are just so amazing.

I Fought the Law was originally done by The Crickets. I think the most famous version was Bobby Fuller.

I think there best cover is A Quick One While He's Away live at MSG. I was there and I freaked out when they played it. I thought it was a tease. Then it would be Shout

A quick one is my personal favorite, although Shout comes in a very close second, even though they have never recorded it. Its just so much fun live

I can't decide between Knowledge, Shout, Stand By Me, or Surrender. Oh yeah and I like their Husker Du cover too.

I've seen videos of them coverin hey jude's chorus, but the fucking people (or at least the one who recorded the thing) kept getting off.. come on, everybody should know where each "na na na na" goes and its tempo.

A quick one, definitely.

There's quite a few performances of the song by just the band on youtube, they only started bringing people up around Nimrod time.

I searched and didn't find anything so tell me if this has been done!

What are your favorite songs that Green Day has covered?

My personal favorite is their mix of Surrender (Cheap Trick) and Bastards of Youth (the Replacements):

Hmm.. I guess it's either Like A Rolling Stone or Another State Of Mind but I do love the others, too.
