Have you heard the new Green Day cover of John Lennon’s Working Class Hero?
Looks like it’s been out in the States for a while but I haven’t heard it on Australian radio yet. (What a surprise.)
If you want to check it out, you can play it directly from the Boxnet widget on my sidebar, otherwise you can see the video clip over here at The Covers Project.
The song will be included in a forthcoming CD, Instant Karma: The Campaign To Save Darfur, proceeds from which will help support Amnesty International’s campaign to focus attention on the urgent catastrophe in Darfur, Sudan. More information here.
Lennon and Green Day, two of my all-time favourites.
I reckon John would have been stoked with this version.
