Green Day gets angry at iHeartRadio Fest

Posted on September 22, 2012 by

Uh oh!  If you ever screw over Green Day’s set time, then you’ll be messing with a very angry Billie Joe Armstrong.

Scheduled to play a 45 minute show at the iHeartRadio festival, their set was cut to 30 minutes to make more room for Rihanna and Usher (who went 25 minutes longer than he was meant to).

Clearly annoyed at the one minute warning on the clock, Armstrong stopped mid-song while playing “Basket Case” to give an angry rant.

“F— this sh–. Gimme a f—ing break. One minute left. One minute f—ing left. You’re going to give me one minute.”

Justin Bieber, who wasn’t even at the show, also got caught in the wrath of Armstrong. “I’m not f—ing Justin Bieber, you mother—-ers. You’ve got to be f—ing joking. I got one minute. One minute left. Now I got nothing left.”

And as he threw his microphone down, the lead singer started to trash his expensive looking guitar and stuck the middle finger out to the crowd.

Yikes!  I can see how Armstrong may have overreacted.  But to be fair, it wasn’t very considerate for the other artists to take over another musician’s set time.
