Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong was joined by Susanna Hoffs of The Bangles for a version of the band’s 1986 smash, “Manic Monday,” in the latest installment of his new weekly cover song series, No Fun Mondays. Written by Prince, “Manic Monday” was a No. 2 US hit for The Bangles.
“While we’ve all been in quarantine,” said Armstrong when launching the series. “I’ve been reflecting on the things that matter the most in my life: Family, friends and, of course, music… I figure if we have to spend this time in isolation, at least we can be alone together. Welcome to No Fun Mondays. Going to release a cover song every week until we’re let back out into the world.”
