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.

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):

For me it is between 'My Generation' or 'I Fought the Law'

Unless you count the Network also....then it is 'Teenagers From Mars'
