Every now and again it feels just about the right time to blow the cobwebs off those seminal pop punk albums. Blink 182’s Dude Ranch and Green Day’s Dookie.
No-one knows this more than the songwriter Shakira – who just uploaded a clip of her singing the Green Day classic Basket Case with her producer on guitar to the delight of her fans on Twitter.
Are we surprised? The latin pop stylings of Shakira are seemingly far removed from the brattish pop punk of mid 90s Green Day. Though in this writers opinion the lyrics of Basket Base:
“Do you have the time to listen to me whine? About everything and nothing all at once”
Are relatable for anyone who has been young and confused.
Shakira will be performing with Jennifer Lopez next year at the Superbowl let’s hope she plays a few Green Day covers on the big stage.
