Team Perfect (Florence Welch of Florence and the Machine and Dev Hynes) cover Green Day among others

Team Perfect is a collaboration between Florence Welch (of Florence and the Machine) and Dev Hynes (of Lightspeed Champion). Back in 2007, the both worked together to cover a ton of tracks from Green Day's 1998 album, Nimrod along with a Blink 182 song. Florence is known for covering songs from artists as diverse as Beyonce, Talking Heads, Buddy Holly, Robert Palmer, and The Beatles. Florence is insanely talented it hurts. There is no one like her in today's music world. She has such an intense presense, an amazing voice and just an all around awesome singer. Here are Team Perfect covering Green Day and Blink 182 and I will include a few of Florence and the Machine cover songs as well. These are all raw, acoustic recordings. It's really odd to see Florence cuss like a sailor, but it's great!
