BILLIE JOE AMSTRONG Covers 60s Beat Band THE EQUALS – Here’s Their Big Hit ‘POLICE ON MY BACK ‘

Green Day’s captain BILLIE JOE AMSTRONG is one of the many artists who’s pretty productive during these bizarre isolation days sharing covers of great pop hits from
the past (like The Bangles’ Manic Monday).

Just now he dropped another cover. This time it’s an old cracker called POLICE ON MY BACK by 60s beat band The Equals led by founder Eddy Grant who started a successful solo career years later. It’s obvious why Amstrong picked this particular song, as it is about police intimidation of black people.
