Despite there being at least 20 bands from the 90’s better than Green Day, Green Day’s Billy Joe Armstrong lost his shit this weekend at the iHeartRadio Music Festival in Las Vegas because he felt he was disrespected after the band’s 45 minute set was cut to 25 minutes to make more room for Usher and Rihanna. But apparently he was just high, because he checked into rehab the next day for substance abuse. TMZ reports:
Green Day’s front man Billie Joe Armstrong is entering rehab for substance abuse … a rep for the band tells TMZ. The band’s rep tells TMZ, “Green day wants to apologize to those they offended at the iHeartRadio Festival in Las Vegas.
Oh, totally bro. Because nothing says punk rock like a middle-aged white dude getting his feelings hurt and saying “fuck” a lot after he already cashed his check from the corporate headquarters of Clear Channel Broadcasting, Inc. If you’re singing the same shit you did in the 90’s and you had your own Broadway show, save the righteous indignation for the your coke mirror. Because, I hate to break this to you, nobody gives a shit.
Btw, they were performing this song when Billy Joe threw his temper tantrum. A song about jacking off. (UPDATE: They apparently were performing “Basket Case”. Same thing)
Here’s Katie Cassidy at iHeartRadio because Katie Cassidy is prettier than the Grandpa Trio:
