Working Class Hero by John and Billie Joe

Something completely different this time. I’ve been listening to both versions of the song and it amazes me how alike they sound from time to time. Of course, the original is the One, there’s no comparison. The sound of their voices is just so similar in certain parts. See (or hear) for yourself.

The original by John Lennon

The Green Day cover (sung by Billie Joe Armstrong)

Would you believe that Lennon released the original four months before Billie Joe was born. 😉
