OTHER NOTES
The first track released to promote the 18 Singles compilation album is a track recorded with Green Day covering the song The Saints are coming.  Before the announcement of a compilation album was even made, promotional copies of the song appeared at US radio.  The promotional disc was shipped to radio in a clear slimline jewel case, with no artwork or tray cards.  UK versions of the disc also shipped without any accompany artwork.

The single is being used to raise funds for the Music Rising Campaign which was formed to bring music back to Hurricane Katrina ravaged New Orleans.  Both promotional discs are marked with the Music Rising logo.

A download of a live performance of the song was made available on the Rhapsody music service.
