Timeflies manages to change Green Day’s “Time of your Life” from sad photo montage music into rage music

I’m not always a fan of Timeflies covers and/or remixes but I’d be lying if I told you I wasn’t jamming out to their cover/remix of Green Day’s “Time of Your Life.”  Of course, they either completely ignore or are oblivious to the irony in the original but that hardly matters when the result is perfect summer weekend music.  They add hip hop drums and electronic elements beneath the original acoustic instrumental and add a couple of rap verses for good measure.   The overall effect of combining a slow acoustic song with hip hop party music is pretty neat, and is something that Timeflies pulls off with effortless finesse.
