From Operation Ivy's Knowledge to The Isley Brothers' Shout, Green Day are certainly partial to a cover or two during their mammoth live shows – and their current Hella Mega Tour is no exception, as they've unveiled a live rendition of KISS' Rock And Roll All Nite.

The Oakland punk rock titans busted out the cover last week at their intimate Hella Mega warm-up show in Tulsa, Oklahoma, before then dropping it in the middle of their set at the packed-out Globe Life Field in Arlington, Texas over the weekend. The cover arrived ninth in their setlist following an opening run that included the likes of American Idiot, Holiday, Know Your Enemy and newbie Pollyanna.

Elsewhere the band played Dookie favourites such as Welcome To Paradise, When I Come Around, Basket Case and She, American Idiot classics like St. Jimmy, Wake Me Up When September Ends and Jesus Of Suburbia, and of course, they closed on the always-emotional Good Riddance (Time Of Your Life).
