Green Day frontman, Billie Joe Armstrong, has released a new cover of John Lennon’s 1971 protest song “Gimme Some Truth.” Listen below.
Armstrong describes his version of the song as somewhere between Generation X, Billy Idol and Lennon’s original. “This song was written by John Lennon. The first time I heard it was from one of my all-time faves Generation X!”
Green Day and Armstrong have been releasing a series of covers during the COVID-19 quarantine to help keep fans entertained. The No Fun Mondays series include Kim Wilde’s “Kids in American”, the Wonders’/Adam Schlesinger’s “That Thing You Do” and Eric Carmen’s “That Rock ‘n’ Roll”.
