I Fought The Law Is April's Big Tune

Rock 'n' roll songwriter SONNY CURTIS is cashing in on his I FOUGHT THE LAW tune - it's fast becoming one of the biggest hits of the spring (04).

The rebellious classic, which was famously covered by THE CLASH, is racing up charts all over the world thanks to two new renditions by performed by actor COLIN FARRELL and GREEN DAY.

Irishman Farrell performed the tune for the soundtrack of his film INTERMISSION and now Green Day have recorded a version, which has shot to the top of APPLE's iTunes download directory.

The track was recorded as a Green Day B-side, but the song has become a hit through Apple's iTunes Music Store, selling nearly

40,000 downloads.
