The Saints Are Coming

Leave it to U2 and Green Day to resurrect a 1978 punk anthem by the the scottish band the Skids. The two bands performed the song tonight pre-game on Monday Night Football to commemorate the reopening of the SuperDome in New Orleans. Proceeds will go to Music Rising, the hurricane charity initiative launched by U2’s The Edge and others. The Skid’s Stuart Adamson, who died in 2001, went on to become the leader of Big Country.
