5 Seconds of Summer Covers Green Day’s ‘American Idiot’


The Twitter world is going crazy after 5 Seconds of Summer tweeted their cover of Green Day’s “American Idiot“!

Luke Hemmings, Michael Clifford, Calum Hood, and Ashton Irwin did the cover for KERRANG! Magazine‘s Green Day tribute album… and the boys really delivered!

The tribute CD is out today on KERRANG! and also features covers of other Green Day hits by Frank Iero, You Me at Six, Bowling For Soup, New Politics, and more!

The Australian pop-punk-rock band gained fame when they opened for One Direction’s Take Me Home Tour last year, and they hit the road again with the boys this year.
