| Filed under: Music MinuteFilm FlickersPaul RuddGreen Day

Paul Rudd and Billie Joe Armstrong in the same scene?!

What!?! Did someone hack into the fantasy cortex of our brain?!

How else could Judd Apatow know to put the Green Day singer in This is 40?

Ch-ch-check out the deleted scene from the knee-slapping, side-splitting, funny bone breakin' flick (above)!

Ugh!? How could this ridiculously awesome conversation about the absurdness of the music industry out of the final cut?

Every film needs BJA!

A stripping guitarist in Magic Mike! A Defense Against Crappy Music professor in Harry Potter! The iceberg in Titanic!

The Voice Coaches Sing Green Day For Graduation Finale

| Filed under: Christina AguileraAdam LevineGreen DayCeeLo GreenBlake SheltonThe Voice

How touching ridiculous!

The Voice judges got a little nostalgic during the show's finale Tuesday night.

For the last time, the foursome gathered on stage to sing their last quartet before Christina Aguilera and Cee-Lo Green's departure.

The song they chose: Green Day's Good Riddance (Time of Your Life)!!

Since the song is usually reserved for prom, graduations and funerals, the performance — and the slow-mo slideshow playing in the background — came off a tad corny.

Press "PLAY" (above) to walk down The Voice memory lane!

For those who put their money on Hannah Sabata to win the 2012's Criminal Mastermind of the Year award, well, you might want to sit down for a minute…

The 19-year-old blonde from Nebraska was clever enough to rob a bank and escape the premises with $6K, but after that her plan went to hell.

Ch-ch-check out Hannah's latest entry in her YouTube channel (above)!

The criminal genius flaunts her newfound cash, the keys to her stolen getaway car, and even a pipe full of wacky-tabacky!

WHOOPS!

The bad news?

Hannah, you forgot to make your upload private! Now the cops — who have since arrested her — possess evidence to put you behind bars!

The good news?

Your vid has almost 1 mil views!! And critics applaud Green Day's Warning as as a thematically appropriate choice for the soundtrack!

So, you have that going for you!

Almost as absurd as the video is Hannah's cray-cray mug shot, take a look at that madness (below)!
