it's not that great. i've seen some videos. it didn't really fit in.
however, i think they should cover it as its own song. smile.gif

I'll be there by Michael Jackson.

And they sang Paraniod by Black Sabbath in the Birmingham show, I thought that was good, and Highway to Hell.

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 like Johnny B. Good & Shout. smile.gif Personally, I didn't really like their 'Let's Go Crazy' cover.
