Green Day's Billie Joe Armstrong To Enter Rehab After Onstage Meltdown

Green Day had been booked to play an intimate show this Friday at the Fillmore in celebration of ¡Uno!, the band's first new album since 2009, which is due out Tuesday. But with Armstrong planning to enter rehab, the concert is off for now.

Several of the new songs on ¡Uno! have already been released or leaked onto the Internet, and the album finds the band returning to the lean, unbridled pop-punk of its earlier years. It's the first of three new Green Day albums, with ¡Dos! seeing release on Nov. 13 and ¡Tré! on Jan. 15. Read our first listen to Green Day's ¡Uno!, and check out our list of the top six new Green Day songs.

Talk about a great publicist. When sh-t hits the fan just throw the star in rehab to make everything better. Green Days lead singer Billie Armstrong checked into rehab after the iHeart Music Festival where he caught the wrong strain of Beiber fever and went off, humiliating his band mates and his self. Is this his band mates turning their back on him and making him get clean in hopes to reconcile what happened and gain back support? Or is this all a publicity stunt for their new album dropping soon? Well Admitting treatment for substance abuse, writing off clear channel, and postponing promotional appearances doesn't sound like the smartest publicity stunt... http://scallywagandvagabond.com/2012/09/green-day-lead-singer-billie-joe-armstrong-checks-into-rehab-after-justin-bieber-rant/
