"We Are the Champions (Queen cover)" as written by Billie Joe Armstrong, Frank E. Wright and Michael Pritchard....
I've payed my dues
time after time
I've done my sentence
but commited no crime
and bad mistakes
I've made a few
I've had my share of sandkicks in my face
but I've come through
(And we mean to go on, and on, and on, and on)

We are the champions, my friend
and we'll keep on fighting
till the end
We are the champions
We are the champions
No time for losers
'Cause We are the champions
Of the world

I've taken my bows
and my curtain calls
you brought me fame and fortune
and everything that goes with it
I thank you all
but it's been no bed of roses
no pleasure cruise
I consider it a challenge before
the whole human race
And I ain't gonna lose
(And we mean to go on, and on, and on, and on)

We are the champions, my friend
and we'll keep on fighting
till the end
We are the champions
We are the champions
No time for losers
'Cause We are the champions
Of the world

We are the champions, my friend
and we'll keep on fighting
till the end
We are the champions
We are the champions
No time for losers
'Cause We are the champions

    General CommentYay! finally i have the first post!

    This is an ausum song and green day cover it well. It is obvious in it's meaning. I saw Green Day do this song live actually last year. The best rendition they ever did was at Live Aid though!
    Still can believe i got the first post!

    General CommentA good song to stick to the true American Idiot him self, Gorge W. Bush, the 2nd screw up in the Bush clan. Go Green Day, go.

    General Commentyeah on the part where they say "i consider it a challenge before the whole human race," they don't say "and i ain't gonna lose" on the live version at least. they say "and i'm rick james, bitch" which really annoyed me i love green day but they kind of ruined a classic queen song by saying that.
