Billie Joe Armstrong Honors Late Adam Schlesinger

Billie Joe Armstrong Honors Late Adam Schlesinger

Billie Joe Armstrong has paid tribute to late Fountains of Wayne songwriter Adam Schlesinger for his latest “No Fun Mondays” cover. The Green Day frontman has covered Schlesinger’s tune “That Thing You Do” from the 1996 movie of the same name.

“Today’s song is a tribute to the late Adam Schlesinger and the incredible music he wrote,” Armstrong writes on Twitter. Unlike some of his other covers, Armstrong doesn’t touch the lyrics, tempo, or even the sound – he stays true to the original this time, and nails it.

  • ONE MORE THING! The surviving members of Fountains Of Wayne are set to reunite tomorrow, along with rocker Sharon Van Etten, to perform a tribute to Schlesinger at the “Jersey 4 Jersey” benefit livestream. Tune in at 7pm ET on Apple Music and AppleTV apps for performances from Bruce Springsteen, Halsey, Jon Bon Jovi, Charlie Puth and more New Jersey natives.
