When the late Chuck Berry passed away recently, major recording artists old and young expressed their grief and cited the rock music legend as a leading influence to their own sound. Bands such as Green Day, Red Hot Chili Peppers, the Roots and Sting paid tribute to the late rocker through music. And the song they all chose to cover was the 1958 classic, ‘Johnny be Goode’.

Goode" following Berry's death.
