Green Day Says Yes to Instant Karma

Green Day isn’t going green, but they are releasing a cover of John Lennon‘s Working Class Hero to benefit Amnesty International’s Make Some Noise project called Instant Karma: The Campaign To Save Darfur.

The single will be available on iTunes, and will be included in a full album release of Lennon tracks for the Instant Karma campaign, which hits stores on May 25. Other artists that are on the karma bandwagon include Snow Patrol, U2, REM, Corrine Bailey Rae and the Black Eyed Peas.

The Instant Karma Campaign is however, by no means, “instant.” The crisis in Darfur has been going on for years: 2.5 million have been displaced and 300,000 have died. Amnesty International hopes that a new form of activism will be enabled by music and the powers of the Internet. All proceeds derived from the campaign will go directly to support Amnesty International.

Rock out, and rock on, Green Day!
