Billie Joe Armstrong Covers Johnny Thunders’ ‘You Can’t Put Your Arms Around a Memory’
It is the latest song from his "No Fun Mondays" quarantine sessions
Last week, Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong covered Tommy James & The Shondells as the first in his “No Fun Monday” quarantine sessions. And today, he returned with a song that fits both his and Green Day’s punk background a bit more.
Tackling Johnny Thunders’ “You Can’t Put Your Arms Around a Memory” seems perfect for Armstrong, especially now. Just like last week’s video, this one also features vintage footage of the band performing in earlier times and hanging out as well — things that seem foreign now.
On Sunday, Armstrong appeared on the Elton John-hosted Living Room Show that was broadcasted live on Fox. He performed “Boulevard of Broken Dreams” from American Idiot from his home in California.
