RNR News and Notes

Since having to postpone their Hella Mega Tour with Weezer and Fall Out Boy, Green Day's Billie Joe Armstrong kept busy this summer by churning out some new/old tunes with his No Fun Mondays covers series.  Over the summer we've heard covers of "I Think We're Alone Now" by Tommy James & the ShondellsJohn Lennon's,  "Kids in America," by Kim Wilde and more.. 

 

The series has been on hiatus since July - but this week we got a surprise cover from BJA - with his take on the 1977 Wreckless Eric track - Whole Wide World.  The track isn't part of No Fun Mondays series - but was recorded for Amazon Music.

It's not the first time Billie Joe Armstrong has given his take to the track either - his all-star cover group, The Coverups - would play the song at some of their secret shows.
