Working Class Hero: John Lennon vs. Green Day genre: Tuned Out & Video-Philes

Green Day performed a cover of John Lennon's Working Class Hero on the American Idol finale tonight. I've included video clips for both versions below. Looking at comments on You Tube, most people have strong feelings about which version they like. A few commenters had good things to say about both. Let me know which version you like best.

John wrote that song so there shouldn't be any comparason. Yuo can't do a cover and expect yours to be better. No matter what if there is a choice its gona be Lennon because he has thr rights to it/
