Green Day’s Billie Joe smashes guitar and shouts expletives against Clearchannel LIVE – (Update: Apologizes to CC and Checks into “rehab”)
Hey Worm? Scared of Bain huh? You’d better be. Now go get your chip tuned up in “rehab” – Fake punks are just as bad as pop dandies like the Beeb. You now ARE what you hate BJ!
With nearly a quarter of a century of music under their belts they certainly have plenty of material.
So perhaps it is understandable why Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong went on a foul-mouthed tirade after his band’s playing time was cut to make way for Usher at the iHeartRadio festival in Las Vegas.
The 40-year-old Dookie star flew off the handle when he discovered 20 minutes were getting shaved off their set to make room for more mainstream acts.
It all kicked off when he noticed that producers had run down his time to one minute.
The pint-sized punk stopped performing mid-song, pointed out the clock to the audience, and then started ranting and swearing uncontrollably.
He said: ‘You’re going to give me one minute? One f***ing minute? I’ve been around since f***ing ninteen eighty f***ing eight and you’re going to give me one f***ing minute?
‘I’m not f***ing Justin Bieber, you motherf***ers.’
