Watch Shakira Cover Green Day’s “Basket Case”

We have the time to listen to her whine.

Shakira is hard at work on new music right now. It makes sense she’ll release fresh material ahead of her highly-anticipated Super Bowl Halftime Show performance with JLo in February. While in the studio with an unnamed producer, Shakira rocked out a little cover of Green Day’s 1994 hit, “Basket Case.”

In the clip, Shakira plays the air guitar and even forgets some of the lyrics. Yes, on the surface this feels extremely random, but Green Day have inserted themselves into mainstream popular culture just as much as Shak has.

Give the video a play below, then let us know what you think about it in the comments:

  1. Actually, THIS is Shakira. She loves rock, and at the beginning of her carrer she was known for her pop-rock sound. For example, google “Inevitable” (amazing song and video), that’s as much Shakira as her “Hips Don’t Lie” era or whatever she’s known for now (she kinda lost her path, if you ask me…). Unfortunately, she’s just going with the flow lately.
