Green Day rocked 'Idol' something fierce with their take on John Lennon's 'Working Class Hero,' a cut from the forthcoming double-disc 'Instant Karma: The Amnesty International Campaign to Save Darfur' -- which features all Lennon covers by heavyweight artists including U2, R.E.M. and the Flaming Lips, among others -- in effort to raise money and awareness for the conflict-riddled Sudan region.
"We wanted to do 'Working Class Hero' because its themes of alienation, class and social status really resonated with us," Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong said.
Fans can purchase the band's cover on iTunes now, while the entire 'Instant Karma' collection hits shelves on June 12.
