Watch Green Day’s Billie Joe & Mike rock a block party covers set

Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong and Mike Dirnt played a surprise covers set as the Coverups a week ago at Oakland’s 40th annual Street Block Party. Joining Armstrong and Dirnt on stage was touring guitarist Jason White, audio engineer Chris Dugan and tour manager Bill Schneider according to a report by AltPress.

The set was so informal and loose compared to the stadium rock god grandeur of Green Day’s massive stage shows with the guys thrashing through classics from the Ramones, Nirvana, the Clash, David Bowie, and a handful of more obscure cuts. If you like old school pogo-jumping punk, then you will love a lot of this performance which you can watch in full here from Youtuber 3 Cameras and a Microphone.
