Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong Shares New John Lennon Cover

Billie Joe Armstrong’s No Fun Mondays series returned last night (July 1) for a hump day edition.

The Green Day frontman shared his cover of John Lennon’s “Gimme Some Truth” on his Instagram page writing “This song was written by John Lennon. The first time I heard it was from one of my all-time faves Generation X!” He added that his version fell somewhere between Generation X, Billy Idol and Lennon’s original.

Listen to the song below.
