What do you think of this song? It's like a dream-team for me. U2 and Green Day together! :) For those of you who didn't know, this song is a cover of "The Skids - The Saints Are Coming" :)

I'm not a big fan of U2, but combined with Green Day, they sound a lot better. I think the song is a decent re-make of the original 'House of the Rising Sun'.

it's only the begining that's based on House of the rising sun. I haven't heard the origanal version of The Saints Are Coming but they probably added that bit because it was recorded as a fundraiser for New Orleans musicians after Katrina.

I think it's a good song. It's made even better because it has been performed by my most favorite band, Greenday. U2 is a very kick-a$$ band too. Bono is a very kind person and I like his band because of that. Both Greenday and U2 are ranked as one of the most wealthy bands in the whole world along with The Rolling Stones. Salute to Greenday! :) - Ron Reyes www.ronreyes.co.nr
