Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong has shared a new cover of Johnny Thunders’ “You Can’t Put Your Arms Around a Memory.”

The new song is accompanied by a music video featuring photos and footage from Armstrong’s side band The Longshot. The cover is part of a new series called No Fun Mondays, where the band will share a new cover song every week.

“Welcome to No Fun Mondays,” Armstrong wrote on Twitter. “Going to release a cover song every week until we’re let back out into the world. This week’s song: “You Can’t Put Your Arms Around A Memory” by Johnny Thunders.
Love BJ”

Check out the song below.

Last week, Armstrong shared his cover of the Tommy James and the Shondells classic “I Think We’re Alone Now.” Armstrong recently performed an acoustic rendition of “Boulevard of Broken Dreams” for the iHeart Living Room Concert for America. Watch the performance here.
