Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong launched a weekly cover series called “No Fun Mondays” to help pass the time during lockdown. Now, all of those renditions are being collected on a full-length album of the same name.
No Fun Mondays will feature Armstrong’s takes on The Bangles (“Manic Monday”), Tommy James and the Shondelles (“I Think We’re Alone Now”), and the recently-deceased Adam Schlesinger (“That Thing You Do!”). The punk rocker also puts his own spin on John Lennon’s “Gimme Some Truth” and “Police on My Back” by The Clash.
You can check out the video for “That Thing You Do!” on YouTube. Pre-orders for No Fun Mondays can be found at the link here. The album is due out November 27th.
