Hoh man, how supremely touching!
To promote the release of their latest album Uno!, iconic pop-punk-rockers Green Day were supposed to perform this week on Jimmy Kimmel…
But seeing as frontman Billie Joe Armstrong is currently in rehab after an expletive-stuffed, on-stage rage at the iHeartRadio music fest, the group obviously cancelled their scheduled TV gig.
BUT, Jimmy's audience were instead treated to the equally legendary Alanis Morissette singing a version of Green Day's Basket Case, at the end of which she tosses out a sweet dedication to Billie Joe (above)!
Alanis' signature vocals lend a whole new, haunting feel to the classic Green Day tune, and we adore how she slowed down the rhythm which really highlighted the track's main themes.
Beautiful work, Alanis! And we just hope Billie gets back into a calm headspace so that we can hear HIM sing Basket Case once again!
