Shakira Covers Green Day's "Basket Case"

October 22, 2019

While latin/pop star Shakira will be preparing for her Super Bowl halftime show with co-headliner Jennifer Lopez, she decided to play around with an impromptu cover of Green Day's "Basket Case" over the weekend.

In a video shared to her Instagram, the vocalist was in the stydio with her producer when they randomly burst into playing the Dookie single along with the caption, “Me, being a basket case with my producer…” 

Me, being a basket case with my producer…

It would seem as Green Day would approve of Shakira's cover, frontman Billie Joe Armstrong commented "I love this" and bassist Mike Dirnt commented "Bacano!", which is the Columbian word for "Cool!"

The "Hips Don't Lie" singer has dabbled in rock many times in her career. Check out her live cover of AC/DC's "Back In Black" from Live & Off the Record below:

There was another time in which she delivered a live cover of Metallica's "Nothing Else Matters" with a latin acoustic twist.
