Glen Campbell's new cover of Good Riddance (Time of Your Life) is SO much better than Green Day's original.
I find Green Day extremely irritating and quite uninspired personally, but Glen Campbell's version really outlines what a solid piece of songwriting that song is. I offer my congratulations to the GD (Billy something?) singer for his songwriting skills, but not his performance.
Add my vote to the Buckley Hallelujah crowd also.
Billie Joe Armstrong, who I think is a very underrated song writer. He co-wrote one of my favorite Rancid songs. Glen Campbell's version's not bad, though.

Always thought it was epitome of a bad cover. hard band covers a softer band material and makes it sound like very other hard band covering a softer bands material beacuse they always use the same gimmicks.
Yeah, I'll agree. I'm not really a fan of the original, but it makes me like the song even less listening to David Draiman sing it.
