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!

Justin Bieber Caught In Billie Joe Armstrong's Crossfire Because He's Usher's Protégé??

JUUUHHHRAMAAAHHHH!!!!

Justin Bieber wasn't even present when Billie Joe Armstrong blasted him at iHeart Radio Fest on Friday.

So why him?? Why'd he target the Biebs???

Well WE think it's cuz he's Usher's protégé!!

You see… Green Day had to shorten their time on stage because Usher was given more time to perform.

Furious with feelings of disrespect, the frontman went off about his band's tenure in the industry. Basically saying they deserved more than the treatment they were given (true), he then said:

Green Day Stays The Night At Our Place Without Dissing Justin Bieber Or Usher Once!

| Filed under: Music MinuteYouTubeGreen DayJustin Bieber

No guitar smashing!! No blasting of Justin Bieber!

This minimalistic new video from Green Day doesn't even have obscenities!!

Ch-ch-check out Billie Joe Armstrong and his boys bringing back an old school punk sound on Stay the Night (above)!

The band's music vid premiered on YouTube the same day Billie broke down into a quasi-cray rant after being ushered — pun absolutely intended — offstage early at iHeartRadio music fest so Usher could expand his own set!

The Green Day singer later checked himself into rehab and his current condition is unknown.

Here's hoping he's feeling better and more like himself.

Billie Joe Armstrong's Rehab Stay Won't Affect Voice Appearance!

Phew!

Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong will still appear as Christina Aguilera's rockin' mentor on The Voice despite his recent admittance into rehab!

Billie kinda freaked us out when he let a deluge of expletives pour from his mouth at this weekend's iHeartRadio Fest, but it seems the aggressive outburst was part of some larger problem, which Mr. Armstrong is now addressing in a rehab facility.

Thankfully, all of Billie's Voice segments with team Xtina were pre-taped this summer before any of this nasty ish occurred.

We hope you shake allll your devils off that leather-clad back of yours, Billie!

And congrats to those Dookie-lovin' boys on TODAY's release of ¡Uno!, their first album in the highly anticipated ¡Uno!,¡Dos!, ¡Tré! musical trilogy!

Crazzzzzy!!!!! We hope Billie's okay….

Billie Joe Armstrong has checked himself into rehab after his EXTREME tirade at the iHeartRadio Music Festival.

After lots of swear words, slamming Justin Bieber, and breaking his guitar, reports now say Billie is looking to change his ways.

The rocker will enter rehab for substance abuse and Green Day's rep releases the following statement:

WARNING: VIDEO HAS STRONG LANGUAGE

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
