Green Day 4/30/20

Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong dialed from his home into The Late Late Show With James Corden on Tuesday night (April 28th), where he and his sons Joey and Jakob performed the 1967 Tommy James and the Shondells classic “I Think We’re Alone Now.”

Armstrong initially released a version of the tune last month, as part of his “No Fun Mondays” quarantine cover series.

Joey and Jakob are both in bands of their own and their father told us not long ago that he’s proud of both boys: [“Yeah, they’re in great bands. They’re really good. I’m a fan. I wouldn’t be answering this question if I thought they sucked. They’re really good bands — super creative and totally rockin’ and they’re different. And they love music more than anything else.”] SOUNDCUE (:13 OC: . . . than anything else.)

In the interview before the performance, James Corden asked Billie Joe if he would ever consider acting again after appearing on American Idiot on Broadway and in several films. Billie Joe replied, “I like to think of myself as a pretty decent B-movie actor. I want to do things like — and this is not a B-movie — I want to be on The Young And The Restless, do a soap opera.”

Corden said, “I think we can organize that,” noting that “all of those soaps tape in the studio directly underneath us.”

Green Day’s latest album, Father Of All Motherf**kers, came out earlier this year.
