The Ode To Billy Joe Armstrong [Audio]

As you know by now, Green Day singer Billie Joe Armstrong is “seeking treatment for substance abuse” after throwing aprofanity-filled tantrum at the iHeartRadio Music Festival on Friday.  According to reports, Green Day’s set was almost cut in half, from about 45 minutes to 25 minutes, after earlier sets by Usher and Rihanna were allowed to go long.  Billie Joe stopped their performance in the middle of the song “Basket Case” when he noticed that a monitor in the venue was warning them that they only had one minute remaining.  This set him off on a profanity-filled tirade.

The KLAQ Morning show talked about it today and not only did they we play clips from the meltdown, we also made a song about it called “Ode to Billy Joe Armstrong.”

You can hear the meltdown and the song below:
