Comment:

When a band does its songs just about as well as they can be done, anybody who dares to cover them better be prepared to do something [i]damn[/i] different. Weezer dipping into Green Day's songbook is no colossal shock; they're friends, they're fans . . . they even name-checked 'em in "El Scorcho." What [i]is[/i] satisfyingly ear-jarring is how they ditch G.D.'s fuzz-bomb sonics on "Worry Rock," unplugging the track without sacrificing one single volt of electric snap. And you can always count on "Weird Al" Yankovic to tweak a lyric, the audience — or, in this case, an entire [i]nation[/i] — with his retoolings, and in "Canadian Idiot" the accordion-wielding potentate of parody body-checks our hose-headed, hockey-mad neighbors to the (Great White) North. But none of these could possibly prepare you for Glen Campbell (yes, Glen Campbell) uncovering the lovability underlying "Good Riddance (Time of Your Life)" in a string-laden country shuffle lacking even the slightest wink of irony. From Avril Lavigne to Richard Cheese to Lea DeLaria(!), a mind-bending mix of musicians are rewriting history with Billie Joe's pen, and we've got 'em all right here.
