    I think it might be Can't Stand Losing You, because a few years ago there was this interview with The Police in Revolver (you can read in here) in which the interviewer asked:

    Revolver: Bands like the Offspring cite Can't Stand Losing You as an important early punk song. Wasn't it banned by the BBC?
    if they think it's an important song, wouldn't it make sense if they covered it?


    p.s. if it's not this song, I really hope it's not going to be Every Breath You Take, that would be sacrilege

    it won't be roxanne as dexter said he jokingly he wouldn't be able to reach the high notes, and I doubt they're cover every breath you take as thats a no brainer - when bands pay tribute to a band, they don't tend to cover their most popular song

    message in a bottle would be ultra gnarly to cover.

    If it was every breath you take - it would be gnarly if they punked it out, if they just sung it the way it was...nup. Because it wouldnt compare, its also been covered so many times.
    Freedom scares you because it means responsibility
