Green Day’s Billie Joe Has A Temper Tantrum: Screams, “I’m Not F*cking Justin Bieber, You Motherf*ckers!”

billiejoefreakoutgreenday

Update: According to the AP, singer Billie Joe Armstrong is headed to rehab for substance abuse. The band also told AP that their set was not cut short.

On Friday night, at the IHeartRadio Music Festival in Las Vegas, NV (which was also being broadcast live via Yahoo), Green Day frontman Billie Joe lost it when he saw that his band only had one more minute left to perform. And by “lost it”, I mean that he basically had a childish temper tantrum where he swore up a storm (he used the word ‘f*ck’, or a derivation of it, 21 times), smashed his guitar and then threw his microphone across the stage.

The trigger for this was the fact that all bands/performers at the festival had a 25-30 set time allotted. This included No Doubt, Usher, and Bon Jovi, as well as many others. And yet, for some reason, Billie Joe felt that his band deserved a longer set list, claiming that they’ve been around, “…since f*cking nineteen eighty f*cking eight“. Hmmm, Bon Jovi’s first release was 1984, but you don’t hear him whining, do you Billie?

Apparently, Billie Joe wasn’t calm or rational during the show either. Yahoo states that he berated the few people who decided to sit down during their performance (I’d be sitting too), the band premiered a new song entitled “It’s F*ck Time”, and Billie Joe pulled down his pants, revealing his, “…personal grooming habits.”

Read on for my thoughts as well as a video of Billie Joe reverting to a snubbed 4-year old.

I’m sorry, but what the hell?! The band knew about the time slot arrangement WELL before taking the stage. These festivals are planned down to the second and any band that signs on knows exactly what is going on. Even if Green Day’s management signed them on without the band knowing the details, they would be brought up-to-date beforehand. Why? Simple: the band would have to design a setlist to fit within the time constraints.

So why does Billie Joe think Green Day deserves better than any other artist that is on the bill? Why should a pop-punk band get preferential treatment? Because they’re about to be immortalized as pigs in an Angry Birds game? Because they have a musical for American Idiot? Sorry, none of this is impressing me. I stopped playing Angry Birds a while ago and I don’t care about your sh*tty musical.

Some people are wondering if this is a publicity stunt to promote the release of ¡Uno!, which comes out on Tuesday. I’m going to speculate that this isn’t the case. I’ve seen a ton of publicity for that album everywhere. Also, the band is big enough that simply releasing a new album will drive sales. They don’t need negative publicity.

No, this is plain and simple a case of someone’s head getting swollen up and their ego getting bigger than the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man. If Billie Joe thinks that he’s impressed or shocked anyone, he can think again. The only thing he’s done is prove that he’s a liability and that music festivals should think twice before signing them to the show.

Also, his overuse of the various forms of “f*ck” totally reminded me of South Park’s “It Hits The Fan”. Check out below to see what I’m talking about.

    Get your facts straight before posting an article berating someone. They (Green Day)did know going in what their set time was *supposed* to be and i am sure planned accordingly. However when Usher’s set went on 15-25 minutes longer than scheduled it threw everything off. At which point the organizers for the event made a poor decision in choosing to take time out of Green Day’s set to get things back on schedule.

    Your lack of research before posting this makes you look like an idiot.Good Job.

    • JonathanBarkan

      There has been an update which I posted at the top of the article.

    • PatrickxJonathan

      Watch out, we got a badass over here.

  • JonOfTheShred

    Either way, Green Day sucks.

  • JonOfTheShred

    They shouldn’t be performing while they’re menstruating, either.

  • DEADFUCK

    What a fag. Fuck green day and fuck these musical updates from bloodydisgusting

    • EvanDickson

      You realize we’ve been doing music for years right? There’s a whole music page. Now we just feature one of those music articles a day on the main page.

    oh boo hoo dude, get the hell over it, do your set and leave

  • JonOfTheShred

    Thanks for the material for a new comedy article, Billy Joe

    • PatrickxJonathan

      Quite possibly the ramblings of a sociopathic lunatic.

  • bonerghost

    Reading the article, I was like “Man, Green Day is a little Bitch.” After watching the video I didn’t really see anything wrong with him being pissed at that. Green Day has always been, to me, a catchy pop rock group that wanted a punk image and have never really respected them in that way. I do have to say though that I probably would have flipped out as well in this situation.

  • Marty McFly

    Fuck yeah! Billie Joe is the man. Fuck you JonoftheShred, based off your picture and your hatred of good music I’m assuming you’re one of those “juggalo” ICP faggots? Whatever man, Billie Joe helped start the new punk movement of the 90s with NOFX and Offspring. He’s a punk at heart, so what if his music got popular? He can’t help it if his music is good. Unlike that pathetic thing they call rap and pop and hip hop or whatever the hell is on the radio nowadays with that autotune bullshit. Justin Bieber, Katy Perry and all those fucking Jonas Brother losers can burn in hell. They are ruining the music industry, they’ve turned music into a joke. So you know what? Why you don’t go fuck yourself. You fucking clown.

    • djblack1313

      Marty, what is a juggalo ICP faggot? i have no idea what that is.

      • JonOfTheShred

        Basically, Marty McFly has his panties in a bunch because someone doesn’t share his shitty taste in music. So instead of discussing this incident amicably, he decided to attack me PERSONALLY instead of defending the band.

        In other words, my superior wit intimidated him, and he decided to make the assumption because I don’t like Green Day, I MUST like Jonas Bros and Katy Perry. Although, I guarantee you that Green Day will be on a “Now Thats What I Call Music” long before ICP will. And I don’t like ICP, the clown is Dr Rockzo for Metalocalypse.

        • Decapitated_Dave

          Whoa. I wasn’t going to comment, but clearly I need to discuss the REAL issue here.

          You people can say what you want about Green Day. Say what you want about ICP. Say what you want about Katy Perry and autotune and whatever the hell you want.

          But if ANYBODY says anything bad about the Jonas Brothers ever again, there’s going to be hell to pay.

      • Decapitated_Dave

        dj, it’s an offensive homophobic term (faggot) placed after the words “juggalo” (one who is a die-hard fan of the rock/rap duo Insane Clown Posse) and “ICP” (see aforementioned acronym).

    • zaglewiz

      COMPARING THE ROCK AND ROLL CLOWN TO JUGGALOS!!!!!!!!!!!! My gawd man :D

  • JonOfTheShred

    Hahaha, yea…I listen to REAL music, like Spyro Gyra, Jethro Tull, Gentle Giant, Al Di Demola, Ozric Tentacles, Deep Purple…ya know, stuff that is MORE than 3 chords and whiney vocals. Your jimmies are all rustled over GREEN DAY? Green Day are fucking hacks that can barely play their instruments. I do more in ONE of my songs than Green Day did in entire albums, so I can back up what I’m saying. I find it hilarious you’re talking shit about ICP, Katy Perry, and Jonas Brothers when they aren’t even that far off from Green Day in the first place. Here’s my music brah, I played everything myself.

    http://www.soundcloud.com/jonoftheshred

    Let’s here YOUR songs, tough guy. Oh, whats that, you aren’t a musician? Then shut the fuck up and go listen to your shitty pop punk, clearly you’re too simple-minded for REAL music played by REAL musicians

    • djblack1313

      Jon, i’m not at all bashing you for your comment about a band should be able to play more than 3 chords but I LOVE JOAN JETT! lol. and i freely admit that Joan is one of those performers/song writers based on power chords (and not a lot of them! LOL). Joan is my idol (and so underrated me thinks) and thankfully i’ve never seen her act like Billy Joe did here. i’m not bashing him either because i don’t know all the facts involved. and you guys there’s no reason to be attacking each other like this. in this kind of situation i always think WWJD? what would Joan do? (joking! LOL).

      • JonOfTheShred

        Green Day have always come across as snobby, smug pieces of shit to me. “American Idiot,” eh? What’s that, them describing their fanbase? They’re bashing the very people stupid enough to buy their shitty records.

        I like Joan Jett. She’s a talented vocalist. She doesn’t seem as full of herself as Green Day are of themselves, though. I liked Green Day better when they changed their name to Good Charlotte.

      • zaglewiz

        I love Joan Jett to. Honestly if it sounds good to your ears, makes ya sing out loud, tap your foot, hit the spoons like a madman, or whatever then it served its purpose in the musical world. I honestly can’t stand when people down someone for their taste in music, movies, fashion, etc. In the end no one is gonna like everything you do and that should make it fun. But instead we go at each others throats with insults, taunts, and verbal exchanges for no fucking reason. It shold be fun to discuss why you like this and why they like that but instead its just turns into a lame fuck around, and a complete waste of time.

  • JonOfTheShred

    And Billy Joe clearly ISN’T the man. In fact, that rant made him look like a woman having a rough time on her period. He sounds like a little girl, too. Especially when he sings. Boulevard of Broken Dreams…what a bunch of fucking faggots. Go listen to some Leftover Crack if you want to hear some REAL PUNK, you poser

  • JonOfTheShred

    Yea, Billy Joe, flip out….it must be so HARD to be making thousands of dollars to play simplistic music to thousands of people. Oh me oh my, what a poor, poor soul. Literally millions of musicians on the underground can barely make a few hundred dollars a gig, and you’re throwing a temper tantrum in front of thousands of people because your set gets cut short? You ungrateful cock sucker.

    • PatrickxJonathan

      You mad?

      • JonOfTheShred

        My jimmies were slightly rustled, yes. When talentless retards who can’t even play guitar stage publicity stunts to get album sales…it’s slightly rustling.

        • PatrickxJonathan

          ^ please tell me more about ICP and how talented they are. 0____o

  • Oasis

    We can all tell he isn’t Justin Bieber. He wishes he could be equal in talent to Justin Bieber. I don’t care what anyone says. You can call him girly, you can make fun of his hair, you can say anything you want, but I truly believe Justin Bieber is the songbird of our generation and all of his records will be classics someday in the future.

    • djblack1313

      i literally have no idea if Justin is talented or not. i’m being serious. i’ve only heard 1 song from him and it was that Christmas song about mistle toe or something. he was performing it live (supposedly) and his voice seemed pretty decent. he’s not my type of act at all though. i love everything from Fleetwood Mac/Miss Nicks to Aimee Mann to Joan to The Go-Go’s to J.Geils. but i’m rambling…..LOL.

      • Oasis

        I think his best song is Boyfriend. Such a classic. I jam to that shit on my way to school every morning. I don’t give a fuck who hears. If I had to list my top 5 musicians/bands, I’d say Justin Bieber, One Direction, Katy Perry, Britney Spears, and Big Time Rush.

        • Decapitated_Dave

          Sticking to the classics! Love it!

  • JonOfTheShred

    Excellent post Oasis. XD

  • JonOfTheShred

    The LEAST PUNK thing about this whole scenario is that this was all just an ACT to get the band publicity before they release their shitty new album this week.

    That’s SO PUNK, faking a temper tantrum to get press before you drop an album.

  • Marty McFly

    Wow, my previous comment gets deleted? What the fuck ever. Don’t give a fuck, you guys can listen to your shitty generic computer generated music all you want.

  • Psycrow

    How is any of this horror related?

    • JonOfTheShred

      Green Day makes HORRible music. Close enough, I guess?

      • Decapitated_Dave

        hahahaha! Great response.

    • Milk

      THIS. A THOUSAND TIMES THIS.

  • Marty McFly

    youre right, I did post in the wrong article, I must of had two browsers open and posted in the wrong one, anyway..Okay, BRAH! First of all, you’re a dumbass. That shit you call “music” that you created is nothing but computerized beats that have programmed into a computer. Wow. You pressed a couple keys, congratulations. Trying actually writings a fucking song with lyrics that have heart and meaning to them, learn how to play a REAL instrument like a guitar, drum or anything, and appreciate something called a BAND. A BAND! It is a group of people making music together. They have what is called talent, which you do not have. I could sit on a fucking computer and mix a bunch of stupid beeping noises too if I was as lazy as you. Green Day isn’t even close to one of my favorite bands, I just respect them a lot because they helped create the punk scene of the 90s. They have what is called “musical ability” its where you can pick up something known as a “musical instrument” and play something called “music” not sit at a computer like a drone.

    • JonOfTheShred

      Marty McFly, are you fucking retarded? I played every note of every song, on this magical instrument…..called a KEYBOARD. THE FUTURE IS HERE. Also used in those recordings was an acoustic bass, an electric guitar, and a lap-steel guitar. Holy shit, people use COMPUTERS to RECORD MUSIC these days?!?!

      I also know how to play the xylophone, saxophone, banjo, kazoo, drums / percussion, stand-up bass, and can sing, rap, and beatbox. What did you listen to 3 seconds of that music? Did you not get to any of the full orchestral movements, that uses the same sample banks Hans Zimmer uses to record professional movie-scores?

      And then you posted not ONE, but TWO comments in this article, meant for another article of the site. I usually don’t pick on retards, but I think you’re too stupid to be using the internet, brah. You might wanna log out, step back from your computer, and jump out the nearest window. Best to clean out the gene pool now before you spawn more idiotic offspring who talk out of their ass about things they clearly have no comprehension of. As in, recording and performing music. GTFO

      • djblack1313

        Jon, i very much liked the couple of tracks on your music page! “Swift as a Ninja” is especially good! nice job! i also play bass, guitar, keys, i sing and i write songs too (i CAN play drums pretty much but i’m too lazy! lol. bass is my main love thanx to ‘Til Tuesday’s Aimee Mann and believe it or not The Go-Go’s Kathy Valentine!). and are you from Worcester Mass? i noticed it said Worcester on your music page! i’m originally from Milton Mass! :)

        • JonOfTheShred

          Actually, yes, that be my hometown. Thanks for taking a listen to the tracks! Swift As A Ninja I recorded in about 45 minutes yesterday, hahaha. Was a very swift production

      • zaglewiz

        For some odd reason or another I felt compelled to challenge you to a BANJO OFF 1998!!!! The thing about that is I’ve already won :D But no shit man hands down for learning that beautiful instrument. When I was a teen I thought the Guitar was the only instrument worth playing until my grandfather left me his Gibson Banjo and since then I’ve been playing the music of angels. I’m not a religious man by any means but I can’t help but loving Gospel Bluegrass, as well as just good ole Bluegrass. I guess its the Kentucky Blood pumping through my veins.

        • JonOfTheShred

          Banjo off? BANJO OFF!

    • Nothing333

      Eagerly awaiting Marty McFlys track that is sooooo easy to make. People like you are fossils. Believing only one type of music is pure and the rest is just fake bullshit. It’s called innovation, evolution, exploring new soundscapes. It takes talent and creativity to create all forms of music. The instruments used are in essence irrelevant in comparison to the artist.

      • zaglewiz

        Damn right dude.

  • ColdmaN5

    Green Day are a bunch of fucking pansies. I hate that they get labeled “punk” (or even worse, “pop-punk” which is a complete oxymoron) when in reality they’re just shitty, by-the-numbers “rock”. Yeah, they’re so edgy, they’re on the radio.

    That being said, this was still tough to watch. I can’t even take him seriously with his high-pitched voice, and his inability to smash his guitar. What a fucking tool.

    • zaglewiz

      You sound like a teenager with the use of the word “tool”. That’s the only types of people I ever hear use that term whenever they hear a band they don’t like. Its best to just not like them and not listen to em. Labeling them as such is just beyond fucking stupid. You could say that any band wanting a following or whatever are tools themselves.

    I honestly can’t believe they’re still going this strong after so many years to be honest. Honestly every other song I’ve heard by them over the years just sounds the fucking same. To each their own I guess.

  • zaglewiz

    Plus why aren’t you mods doing something about this “faggot” bullshit? Use to be that was a big NO NO on BD and you guys are letting it run wild by the looks of things. Honestly this use to be one of my favorite sites to come and bullshit about things but here recently you guys have just letting trolling, insults for no reason, etc just get out of hand. I mean 4 years ago I was put on a timeout for talking about a book and using the word “gay” to explain a scenario.

    I am thankful he did clear up the fact that he isn’t Justin Bieber. I was really confused.

    Wait a minute, people being bloody disgusting is comparable to a womans period ? Or people being immature and emotional is a natural part of life….but, some people need an excuse to take it out on other people? And some people like that because thats their sense of humor or passion or confusion?
