21 Guns Gets Musical Treatment

It takes skill for a cast to stand in a straight line and emote in unison.

Spinner debuted a new version of "21 Guns" today-- one recorded by Green Day and the cast of the new American Idiot musical. It's interesting. One would think that Green Day would be against musical theater type pomp and over earnest "ahhhs," but who knows. They can be pretty theatrical themselves-- and obviously this project's been brewing a while. Perhaps this is one of those situations where the song (or whatever) is good in its own right. Or not. Maybe it kind of sucks. You decide.
