New Orleans Superdome Rocks!

New Orleans Saint's Reggie Bush "Bangs His Head"

World renowned rock bands U2 and Green Day teamed up to give the New Orleans faithful an earful of energized music during Monday Night Football this week.

This was the Saints first home game since hurricane Katrina turned the Superdome into a damaged refuge for those riding out the storm last year. The Superdome has been through major refurbishing and apparently The Saints have as well. They are first in their division at 3-0 after Monday's win.

The 70's punk song "The Saints Are Coming" rattled though the stadium as U2 lead singer Bono traded melodies with Green Day's Own Billy Joe Armstrong. Local musicians played backup for the pregame concert.

The two rock juggernauts worked together earlier this year in the famous Abbey Road studios to record a studio version of the song which will be released as a fund raiser to help rebuild New Orleans.

U2 and Green Day are both working on albums due out next year.
