Of course since I don't want to get sued for copyright, I spent the last hour on MS Paint making a picture. Company time well spent! So I’m sure I’ve heard somewhere before that Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong has kids. But for some reason when I saw a story about Billie Joe and his son playing a secret show to celebrate Fathers Day the first thing I thought was “huh.” The same noise I make when someone explains why they’re having a shitty day, and I pretend I care.
And then I make this face and run away laughing.
The Green Day front man and his son Joey started their Father's Day celebration a little early by taking the stage together in Oakland for a surprise show under the name "Two and a Half Men." A band name that would have been funny in 2010.
One of us still has a job, and it’s not the one you think.
Joey Armstrong was on drums and Green Day touring member Jason White on bass, and Daddy Billie Joe leading the trio through an eleven-song setlist of Green Day deep cuts. Joey -- who plays in his own band Emily's Army -- posted a few pictures and videos of the family gig on Instagram.

A critical smash on Broadway and in London, the two-time Tony Award® winning hit musical AMERICAN IDIOT tells the story of three lifelong friends, forced to choose between their dreams and the safety of suburbia. Their quest for true meaning in a post 9/11 world leads them on the most exhilarating theatrical journey of the season.
Based on Green Day's GRAMMY® Award-winning multi-platinum album, AMERICAN IDIOT boldly takes the American musical where it's never gone before. The result is an experience Charles Isherwood of The New York Times declares "thrilling, emotionally charged, and as moving as any Broadway musical I've seen this year!"
Featuring the hits "Boulevard of Broken Dreams," "21 Guns," "Wake Me Up When September Ends," "Holiday" and the blockbuster title track, AMERICAN IDIOT features the music of Green Day and the lyrics of its lead singer Billie Joe Armstrong, direction by Tony Award® winner Michael Mayer (Spring Awakening), choreography by Olivier Award winner Steven Hoggett (Black Watch), music supervision, orchestrations and arrangements by Pulitzer Prize winner Tom Kitt (Next to Normal), Tony Award® winning set design by Christine Jones and Tony Award® winning lighting design by Kevin Adams.
