Green Day's Billie Joe Is Having A Manic Monday

Author: 
Billie Joe Armstrong

Rock stars are just like the rest of us, staying home under the near-worldwide lockdown to flatten the Covid-19 curve. Billie Joe Armstrong, lead singer from Green Day, has been using the time productively releasing a number of cover versions in his No Fun Monday series. The series includes a cover of the Bangles' Manic Monday.

Rock stars are just like the rest of us, staying home under the near-worldwide lockdown to flatten the Covid-19 curve. One difference of course is that most of us don't have recording studios in our homes that allow us to make state of the art recordings.

Billie Joe Armstrong, lead singer from Green Day, is locked down in Oakland, California.  You know, "The representative from California has the floor!" (If you don't know then don't worry.)

He has been using the time productively releasing a number of cover versions in his 'No Fun Monday' series. The series includes a cover of the Bangles' Manic Monday, That Thing You Do, (which was the theme song of a Tom Hanks movie) and Kids in America - which was a hit for Kim Wilde in the early 80s.

Because Bille Joe has his own recording studio in his house the recording quality is also top notch. Hope you enjoy!

Here's something special! James Corden interviews Billie Joe for the Late, Late Show and then he performs with his sons Joey and Jacob. This is his latest cover - I Think We're Alone Now! (I thought this was a Tiffany cover but Bille Joe says its a Tommy James and Shandells cover!)
