Rock is alive and kickin!!

Billie Joe Armstrong defended Green Day's industry tenure Friday night when he felt disrespected by the iHeart Radio Music Festival.

The legendary band's set was cut about 20 minutes so Usher could have more time on stage. Pissed and offended, Billie erupted with a medley of freak-out rants during their performance.

Before they performed their classic hit Basket Case (3:11), he goes off about the four minute limit, but after the song's over (5:58)… that's when it REALLY sets on FIYAH!!

    i like how everyone is leaving out the best part of lasts night Green Day performance. Billie Joe flashed the audience for a good 30 seconds and iheartreadio like pulled into a huge wide shot of him on stage and then only did cut aways to the mike, tre, and jason till Billie pulled his pants up. he also kind of slammed Usher. Wish I could have been there.

  3. 3

    So…Did he only have 1 minute?

    green day sucks, seriously look at them , middle aged men acting and dressing like teenagers, it doesn't get more pathetic than this

  5. 5

    Billie Joe is a fucking boss. I'd be pissed too.

    Just one of the many reasons why I love Billie. Love you Honey. :)

    I can understand his frustration. You got a person like Justin Bieber that won't be remembered in 5 years and then a band like Green Day that keeps making hit records.

  9. 9

    Sad, washed up old clowns wearing their emo makeup and clothes still. Really pathetic. He doesn't even say anything, he just curses over and over. His career is dead and he's irrelevant. Get a clue.

    Re: Getjre
    Um who gives a shit how they dress? They at least have talent unlike most of the other acts at that show. They have been around since the 90s, they can dress however the fuck they want. And to be cut short because Usher needs more time is fucking crap.

  11. 11

    Re: Getjre – damn ass!!! they've been like that since the beginning of the world… thats why we love them.

    Re: gilliandawe91 – what? Green Day are legendary! i think he was right to defend his band…. Usher, please does nothing for me. at all.

  13. 13

    what the hell did Justin do? nothing. there's no need for his name to be even mentioned.

  14. Pauline says – reply to this



  15. 15

    and by Justin doing nothing, i mean to Green Day, he did nothing to them.

    Re: Gay Republican – You're wrong in so many ways.

  17. Fleur says – reply to this


    HAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAH This is one of the funniest shit I've ever seen! Whatever he was on, I want some of that too!

    But seriously Billie… you are right.. you have been around for 25 years. So you of all people should now how the industry works. Usher, Bieber, Katy Perry and the rest of the pop industry get more time coz they are commercial and bring in the money babe.. Deal with it. No need to trow a tantrum like a 15y old..

  18. alyssanc says – reply to this


    Did Usher even sing? Or did he just play his record while he danced around on stage? Green Day, Aerosmith, Pink, even Taylor Swift!…THOSE are PERFORMERS and ARTISTS. They actually use the talent that they were given to entertain at a LIVE show… GD should not have been cut short. They're legends. Usher will probably be irrelevant in another 5 years.

  19. 19

    Re: Gay Republican – And you're a sexual deviant, which is completely uncool; YOU need to get a clue. I'd rather see real musicians perform than some dude who lip syncs to records because he can't sing and dance at the same time.

  20. 20

    not a huge fan of them, but that was awsome. i understand where he is comming from. id be FUCKING PISSED TOO. haha

  21. 21

    That was embarrassing, youre a grown ass man acting like that?? If they can cut off paul mac and madonna they can cut of fuccking green day.

  22. Milena says – reply to this


    THOSE GUYS RIGHT THERE MADE MUSIC OUT OF SCRATCH IN THEIR GARAGES AND MADE HISTORY HAPPEN, ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME? yeah oh the glory it is to be an eletronic autotuned music star. i'm so ashamed of the music industry right now omfg

    Re: Yes You Bore Me – Great display of ad hominem. I do not think Billie Joe would appreciate you referring to homosexuality as "sexual deviancy." By the way, I was not aware there was a "cool" sexual orientation. You learn something new everyday! Thanks PerezHilton.com!

  33. 33

    He had every right 2 be pissed. They cut his set 20 minutes 4 Usher?!?!?!?!?!!?!?!?!

  34. 34

    LoL poor Justin Bieber…everyone either loves or hates him lol. That's prettty messed up though, they should've gotten more time on stage.

  35. 35

    Re: Royal Rican Prince – I agree. 20 minutes is like 4-5 songs. iHeart totally screwed them over.

  36. 36

    what did he say about argentina?

  37. Daler says – reply to this


    As I was listening to them since 2003, I know that they are damn good live… I can say even the best live band to date. This one is just an accident and no one really cares about this show. If you want to hear some "clean" musicians, go listen to One Direction. Certainly, Green Day ain't Beatles and Rolling Stones, but they are best in their field. They respect all the classic bands, and made the albums that remind people of all rock n roll times. If you think that artists like Usher and JB can borrow 20 minutes from these guys, you better to change your music taste and go listen to some Clash or Ramones.

    Awesome! He basically was saying…who the fuck are these mother fuckers like Justin Bieber?

  42. MB says – reply to this


    Fucking awesome. He's right, and that was an amazing sacrifice of an amazing guitar.

  43. Luke Warm says – reply to this


    While I do agree with Billie Joe's assesment of how long they've been around and how that might equate into them having longer stage time, I also have to ask them why the hell did they agree to do a FESTIVAL where there are a ton of acts who will be performing. If he didn't like the time that would be alotted for their performance, he should have declined the offer to play there. He most likely knew ahead of time how much time they would have on stage. I don't fault his frustration for thinking they have earned the right to a longer performance per sheer years in the business, but, they aren't the only band in the business and EVERYONE had only a certain amount of time to perform. Sorry, you are not any more special than any other act there. The other acts also had to get their gig in between certain time slots. Everyone is always bitchin' and moanin' about how much more special they are over someone else. smh. I love green day, but, that was really rediculous.

  44. Offendead says – reply to this


    LOL, my God, I love Green Day !!

  45. NomadAngie says – reply to this


    Re: Luke Warm – They agreed to perform because they've done this before. They already Co-headlined a tour in the past, and their set was supposed to be 45 minutes (which is about 8-10 songs), and cutting their set by 20 minutes is a huge disrespect to what these band has accomplished in almost 25 years. And not a lot of bands can say their music has inspired a Broadway Musical. A lot of these singers will become irrelevant in the next 5-10 years, but Green Day are still the best modern rock band!!

  46. Jesse says – reply to this


    Re: Luke Warm – The show was running late so instead of just making it go over time. They cut down Green days by 20 minutes so Usher could have a longer set. They were given a longer set and agreed to a longer set and then got it cut because idiots couldn't make the show run on time. They had a right to be pissed. you don't cut fucking Green Day for a guy who doesn't sing live because he can't sing and dance at the same time.

  47. Love It says – reply to this


    And that's why Green Day is so great.

  48. Corina says – reply to this


    Re: Luke Warm – did you not read or pay attention , Their set was CUT 20 min for usher ! Apparently I heart radio thought it was ok to take away THEIR time to give to another performer , that's why he is pissed . Not because he thinks he deserved more time , the time the band originally thought they had was taken . Next time pay attention.

  49. kunekune says – reply to this


    Re: Gay Republican – you truley are wrong on so many levels their carers are kicking off like never before they have left all the shity recod labels justin beiber usher etc, relie on and greenday have made 3 new albums by them self no doubt all hits.

  50. 50

    Re: Luke Warm

    Of course each act had their own time slot allocated, but it clearly states here "The legendary band's set was cut about 20 minutes so Usher could have more time on stage. "
    They're ALLOCATED set was cut SHORT by 20 minutes just so Usher could have MORE TIME. Yes, everyone had a certain amount of time for their set, but it doesn't say anything about anyone other than Green Day having their set cut, now does it??!

  51. 51

    ‎"What the fuck?! I'm not fucking Justin Beiiber, you motherfuckers!".

    And now I like Green Day even more!!!

  52. itsclaudia says – reply to this


    Because of that i love him even more, it's too unfair… just 7 minutes? u mad? green day rocks.

    Re: tami – Then you need to stop coming to gossip sites, dumb ass

  55. Emmy says – reply to this


    Re: Jeff – True, Justin Bieber may not sell as he gets older, while Green Day is iconic. BUT, should Justin apologize for being popular and one of the world's biggest selling pop artist right now. Furthermore, most of the acts that were part of the iheartradio festival this year was pop, so maybe Green Day should've thought about that before they signed on?

  56. Emmy says – reply to this


    Re: alyssanc – Well I'm sure you're right seeing how Usher has already been successful for the past fifteen years…but I'm sure another five, he will be irrelevant. Just shut up! You lost all street cred when you had the audacity to lump Taylor Swift in with actual artist who have paid their dues and I am referring to both Green Day AND Usher!!

  57. Oh Hiiii says – reply to this


    I love Justin Bieber, don't get me wrong, but come on Green Day have been around much longer than either Usher or Biebs so why should they be cut off so Usher can dance around a bit? If I were them I would have done exactly the same thing. I would much rather watch listen to Green Day over Usher any day.

    Yet you took your precious valuable time to comment and visit a site that does that which you're against…

    WOW! Watched all of it go down live and they should be pissed! Usher lip-synced most of his songs!!!! What the hell! Green Day actually has talent at least. He barely mentions Justin tho. #TeamGreenDay

    Re: Getjre – I didnt know it was based in appereances

  61. @v@ says – reply to this


    Onstage Tantrum and next day embarrassment aside, Green Day booked and appeared in contractual good faith. If the festival messed with their time allotment after the fact, that's not ok nor kosher…particularly if it looks like someone else with more popular pull squeezed out more time to another artist's detriment. Don't have a fit. Call an entertainment lawyer.

  62. Morgen says – reply to this


    Billie Joe is amazing. I would be pissed too .. I mean cut for Usher.. Really.. Come on

  63. celina says – reply to this


    I saw green day at a festival and they played for 2:30 hours. I saw other famous bands that barely played more than one hour while they add the discography to do so. I completely understand where they are coming from. And besides I never really followed Green Day but damn they are freaking good live and totally worth it. I have nothing against usher, I saw him live once, he just is really bad in comparaison.

  64. wambat says – reply to this


    Re: Getjre – Yeah, and they're rich as fuck from it. What losers! [/sarcasm]

  65. Luke Warm says – reply to this


    My bad, I thought he was upset that his time slot was only a certain amount from the beginning and when his time was up, he was upset. I didn't realize they actually cut his set, I just thought his time was up, period, and he didn't want to get off the stage. In that case, then no…iheart should have just ran over time and let both acts perform. I totally misinterpreted what was written in a completely different way. So, whoever said I should pay attention, you're right. My appologies :)

    Re: Luke Warm

    Their set was cut short by 20 mins…I would be fucking pissed too.

    Billie Joe Armstrong rocks!!!!! he was so right to get mad. Who the fuck said justin bieber (yes with no capital letters he don't deserve it) deserve Green Day's time sincerely its fucked up

    Billie Joe is EPIC and had every right to be pissed!!! I guarantee if Usher had been cut short by 20 minutes all hell would have broken loose!!!

    Re: Gay Republican – But he had a right to be pissed off though!

  73. Irisje says – reply to this


    Re: Luke Warm – They originally had 45 min. but Usher went over his allotted time, so Iheart cut Green Day's set by 20 min. I would be pissed too.

  74. Luke Warm says – reply to this


    Re: Irisje – I agree with you. As I stated above, I misread what actually went on. I didn't realized they actually cut the set short, I just misinterpreted it by thinking they just didn't want to get offstage after their time slot was up. That is why I did't understand his rant. Everyone is pointing out what actually happened and now I know what went on. I appologized for my misunderstanding. He had every right to be upset.

  75. nana says – reply to this


    I understand why he's angry but Justin Bieber wasn't even there so why was he's name brought up? At least bash that people that was there. It'll still be mean but it'll make more since…

  76. offbeatsz562 says – reply to this


    Billie Joe proves a huge point, not only does Green Day put an amazing show LIVE (none of that lip syncing).. Oh, but they PLAY their own instruments which also proves huge talent! I'd understand why he'd be pissed, radio sucks now a days. I respect Usher & love his music as well, but cut someone else's slot is pure disrespect. Btw, how can you diss him on his style saying he's not young anymore? I didn't realize that "punk" was only a high school thing. Just sayin!

    He mentions Bieber because usher is Biebers mentor. It was meant as "Im not Ushers little bitch" a.k.a. Justin Bieber.

  79. Violet says – reply to this


    Re: offbeatsz562 – I agree with you and like you, I am big fans of both Green Day and Usher, but Billie's beef should be with whomever organized this event. I doubt Usher went and said "Look, my performance is going to be longer than expected. Tell Green Day that they are going to have to scale back their performance." I hate that Justin Bieber is made to be the cheap shot when he wasn't even there and had nothing to do with this.

    Was Green Day informed that they were gonna cut off? If they didn't, then that's seriously fucked up! I would be pissed as well! Even though I like some of Ushers music, I didn't like the fact that he got got extra time to do whatever the fuck was doing on stage. Like come on, stick to 45 minutes like everyone else.

  83. 83

    First of all both Green Day and Usher have earned their way to fame and I am really not an Usher fan and really don't care for him! But we didn't like Green Day getting disrespected do lets not disrespect Usher. I can see where Billie would be upset tho :-( maybe he could have handled it a different way. And as for being washed up? please!!! They still got it and always will that's people's problem mow a days they think people should make music and then eventually fall off the face of the earth but music is meant to be forever and I don't care if their singing in their wheelchairs I'm still going to listen who knows maybe I'm washed up too!!!

  84. bree says – reply to this


    I'm not in any way a fan of Justin Bieber, but this is just stupid. A grown-ass man bashing a little kid? How is that cool? Seriously, it's insanely embarrassing. Also, Green Day stopped being good like…15 years ago. At least.

  85. Michelle says – reply to this


    Re: bree – 15 years ago would be when Nimrod was released. That was when they were at their best. And maybe they don't have the best albums or.songs but they sure can put on a show.

  86. 86

    Re: Luke Warm – You clearly don't know what happened. Green Day were alloted 45 minutes to play onstage. But it got cut down to 25 minutes (almost in HALF) because Usher decided to play for 25 minutes longer than he was allowed. And they didn't bother stopping him. But they didn't even give Green Day their stolen time back, and then said that they only had 1 minute left. So they couldn't even finish the song ("Basketcase"). THAT is why he was so pissed off.

  87. -.- says – reply to this


    Honestly, what the hell! I guess I'd be pretty pissed if that happened to me, but why bring up Justin Bieber? He wasn't even on the iHeartRadio Festival. Justin was irrelevant in this subject of matter and shouldn't have been brought up. & Billy, it's nice to know you've been around since 198 fucking 8 but you shouldn't have brought Justin. He has done completely nothing to you and you decide to diss him? Um, no. You're a grown man, you should know better than that.

    Re: Getjre – The style is actually the norm for rock stars. If he were a marketing executive he'd dress differently. It's not the style he wears, it's just his stupid attitude. They aren't legends like Pink Floyd–and he made the whole band look like complete idiots. Grow Up Armstrong, no one cares how long you've been around. Your music is shit.

  89. Lilla says – reply to this


    Omg finally someone did it. No one will even know who usher or justin bieber is in about 5 years tops. Most people in the crowd were justin bieber fans im guessing….sigh. idk what kind of world we live in where fucking justin bieber is treated like a god and good music is ignored.

  95. Shark317 says – reply to this


    Re: Luke Warm – Green Day was supposed to have a lot more time. Usher ran long and instead of the stage manager doing his or her fucking job and telling Usher to get off the damn stage because they have more acts or getting people to agree to adjust their sets (take maybe a song a piece off the next few acts), they just hacked into Green Day's time. Green Day has been around for 24 years and is a different genre than many of the other acts. People who bought their ticket to the festival because Green Day was going to be there got suckered out of their concert time.

  96. GreenDay Deserves More says – reply to this


    Re: Gay Republican
    Seriously? If his career was dead would he have even been invited to play? Look, it doesn't matter what you think about him or the band, the point is, they shouldn't have cut his time. It was unprofessional, and just plain rude. No, he shouldn't have cursed like that, but he was upset, and who can blame him for that? I would have done the same thing. And hats off to Billie for blasting Bieber. Someone needed to, I mean the kid can't sing, yet people don't call him pathetic. Get a clue.

    Re: Emmy – the problem is, iheart signed them on for a longer performance, that tantrum would be better than crying backstage and back stabbing usher. They've been around longer and they demand respect

    He would've had a lot more time if he cut out all the swears…probably would've had time for another song like he wanted. Causing a scene is always a good way for this washed up band to stay revelent though!

    Erm, I thought it was a bit inappropriate. I mean.. don't get me wrong, I've been a green day fan for around 10 years now..I have all their cds, I love them to death but this was just uncalled for. He is a grown up man and he can't get away with acting like a teenager anymore. If he wants more time to play or any kind of respect then he needs to cut this immature crap.
