The California ska band Goldfinger released a popular cover version in 2000 on their album Stomping Ground
that was used on the soundtrack of the 2001 film Not Another Teen Movie
. Their version features one verse in German; lead singer John Feldmann said he had to take lessons to learn how to say some German words before recording it.
Long before Goldfinger got to it, the punk band 7 Seconds recorded it, including it on their 1985 album Walk Together, Rock Together
. Scott Lucas
, who later recorded Britney Spears' "Toxic
" and Lorde's "Team
" with his band Local H, said: "That stuck with me. A male-fronted punk band covering a song by a female-fronted pop band. It's an obvious dichotomy, but I love it anyway."
