Members of Green Day made a surprise impromptu appearance at a party in their native Oakland.
Just last month, ‘The Coverups’ appeared at the 40th Street Block Party to perform an hour-long set of classics.
The punk rockers’ side project lashed through a generous set of covers. They treated the revelers to such hits as by the likes of David Bowie, The Clash Nirvana, and a whole host more.
Green Day frontman, Billie Joe Armstrong and bassist Mike Dirnt delivered such classics as ‘All The Young Dudes’, ‘Suffragette City’ and ‘Rebel Rebel’ by David Bowie.
They also covered Nirvana’s ‘Drain You’ and ‘Happy’ and ‘Jumpin’ Jack Flash’ by The Rolling Stones.
According to the NME, this comes after a similar show back on New Year’s Eve, where the band were joined by Guns N’ Roses bassist Duff McKagan. Check out footage of the full show and the setlist below.
