A Rolling Stone Gathers No Whatever: An Occasional Series

When I posted that Keith Urban clip -- him covering "Tumblin' Dice" -- the other day, I didn't know that it was part of a week-long Jimmy Fallon tribute to The Rolling Stones' Exile on Main Street.

So from 2012, please behold in breathless wonder Green Day as they blowtorch their way through one of the greatest rock 'n' roll songs ever written.

Okay, it doesn't swing like the Stones' version -- absent Charlie Watts on drums, how could it? -- but it's fricking amazing anyway.

Yeah. One of my favorites, and as close to Rockabilly as the Stones get, here nicely rendered as punk rock via Johnny and The Dolls.

Killer. Just Killer.

like the Keith Urban clip they go too far out of their way to "sound like the record." Man, just let Green Day do it their way, no keyboards, second guitar, sax.
