Green Day

Working Class Hero

Green Day
Green Day and John Lennon. Say it again: Green Day and John Lennon. That’s, like, the worst idea in the world, right? As if the principle of covering something from rock’s yawnsome cannon wasn’t bad enough, Green Day (a band whose lasting legacy, let’s not forget, is Sum 41) tackle Lennon’s humourless, self-important plodder ‘Working Class Hero’ with predictably ditch-watery results. Laughable, even from a band who released an album called ‘Kerplunk’.
