"In third grade, I was listening to Creedence Clearwater records as well as Beatles and Rolling Stones," frontman Mike Ness tells Rolling Stone. "Covering this song was easy and natural, as it is a major part of the foundation in my songwriting. It was a blast recording it and it will be even more fun playing it live."
