Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong covers ‘Kids in America’

Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong has recorded a cover of Kim Wilde’s 1981 hit ‘Kids in America’ in the latest installment of his weekly series No Fun Mondays.

“This week’s No Fun Mondays is dedicated to the one, the only, Mike Dirnt. Happy birthday!”, says Armstrong about his bandmate as the bassist turns 48 on May 4. “Play this one loud just for him.”

Armstrong launched the weekly cover song series four weeks ago during quarantine. Previous installments included a version of ‘I think we’re alone now’ and ‘Manic Monday’ featuring Susanna Hoffs from the Bangles.
