Billie Joe Armstrong did, technically not Greenday. Was one of his #nofunmonday covers during lockdown. Played it on one of the late night talk shows with his kids.

Wow, 2 pages and no one has mentioned Disturb's cover of Simon and Garfunkle's "Sound of Silence"?


This was done live on Conan while the lead singer was sick...still that good. Better than the original.

I also liked Bad Wolves cover of Cranberry's "Zombie"

Foo Fighters' cover of "Baker Street" is very cool. Not a copy of the original and they didn't even mess with having a sax. It's their own interpretation and it is great. Not better or worse than the original. Just a cool job of covering a very difficult song to cover.

I remember a buddy of mine years ago playing The Stranglers songs for me, which I hated - until he played their cover of "Walk On By".  Far out, man.

My parents saw him at the Schott a number of years ago. During one of his performances, a blue collar guy who was probably in his 60s and was sitting in front of my parents, got taken away by the beauty of the music. He turned to his wife and he had tears in his eyes. He said pretty loudly to her, "goddamn, that d**go can sing!"

I'm not actually an opera fan....Not ashamed to admit there are a few Popera tunes I like.

Seen that one before, but Marcelito did both the female and male parts...by himself.
