Shakira claims she was “being a basket case” with her producer last Saturday (Oct. 18), when she gave Green Day’s punk rock song “Basket Case” a more acoustic pop flavor. Stripped down with a single guitar and her mic, Shakira jovially jammed out to the first verse and chorus.
Bassist and backing vocalist Mike Dirnt commented, “Bacano!” which translates to the Colombian colloquialism meaning “Cool!” The Colombian singer replied, “thanks!!!!!” before showing the love to the band’s fellow co-founder and lead vocalist/guitarist Billie Joe Armstrong.
Armstrong reposted Shakira’s cover on his Instagram with a black heart emoji, which she returned to him in the comments section.
