Alanis Morissette Covers Green Day's Basket Case In Honor Of Billie Joe Armstrong! WATCH HERE!!

| Filed under: Music MinuteAlanis MorissettePerezTVJimmy KimmelGreen DayHealth

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.

Sadface!

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!

    Why is she "honoring" him???? WTF? He isn't dead or falsely imprisoned, he's a junkie that went to rehab. Good god, it this gay ass touchy feeling world we have come to live in, even rug addicts and women beaters get sympathy from everyone.

    How Ironic she chose to honor him with "Basket Case ". Could have picked a better song considering what happened but her voice is lovely.

    I think that was very classy of her. Everyone goes through some shit at some point or another. Billie Joe Armstrong is getting help for his problems, and I respect him for that. He could deny he has a problem at all. I hope he gets where he feels he needs to be soon.

    RE: outkast74 - Very well said.
