Green Day's cover of Working Class Hero has so much more feeling into it than John Lennon's original version of this song. This song made me search for the original. Though the original really disappointed me after hearing this cover of it. Green Day is, and will be an all time best.
I want Knowledge - Green Day (Operation Ivy)... I like Green Day's version more than the original.
A working class hero is something to be
Not a lot has been changed in orchestration, none at all in lyrics, but the voice of Tarja has taken a great song to a new level.
The original version by Gary Moore isn't bad, but Nightwish definitely does it better. Not only are the vocals better but so are the instrument. Too bad it's not their own song.
Amazing cover! especailly when performed live, finnishing off a great show! - ZeppHindle
Gareth gates has made a great song out of another very great song. Its just too awesome. One of my favorites.
This definitely is not the best cover ever but definitely one of the best and hundred times better than the original. And this is the best song by hypnogaja.
