The band Green Day appeared in the recently wrapped Season 6 of "American Idol," performing its version of John Lennon's "Working Class Hero."
Now, they've partnered with the Hard Rock Cafe to launch another of the chain's popular International Signature Series T-shirts.
The design of the shirt (pictured) was created by the members of Green Day and features an oversized graphic of rocker Billie Joe Armstrong, lead vocalist and guitarist. The back of the shirt features signatures of each of the band members with the words "Working Class Hero."
So, if you're hungry - it's about that time - swing by and eat, and pick up a T-shirt and the charity CD, "Instant Karma: The Amnesty International Campaign To Save Darfur," starting, well, today! The shirts sell for $24 at the restaurants and here; the CD is $21.98.
By the way, Green Day is the 24th group/performer to become part of the Hard Rock's Signature Series program. Other notables include Elton John, Eric Clapton, Bruce Springsteen and Ozzy Osbourne.
* In other Hard Rock news: Check out the chain's expanded menu of four new "Legendary Burgers." Plus, they've added Maryland Style Crab Cakes and items to its Smokehouse section.
And, this just in: As part of the chain's Founders' Day celebration, which kicks off Thursday, there will be a "Burger Badge Bash," in which community servants (that would be police officers, firefighters and emergency medical technicians) are invited to the Hard Rock Cafe at the Downtown Plaza to enjoy a Legendary Burger of their choice for just 71 cents.
Why 71 cents? For those of us old enough to remember, the first Hard Rock opened in London on June 14, 1971.
