Rock star says he’s ‘f***ing renouncing’ US citizenship

Billie Joe Armstrong news

The frontman of pop-punk group Green Day has vowed to leave the US over the federal abortion ban.

The frontman and guitarist of 90’s pop-punk band Green Day, Billie Joe Armstrong, announced he was “f***ing renouncing my citizenship” and moving to London in the midst of a profane tirade during a performance on the band’s Hella Mega tour at London Stadium on Friday.

The 50-year-old rocker’s exclamation was meant as a denunciation of the US Supreme Court’s decision on Friday to reverse the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision that federally legalized abortion. The highly controversial court ruling has triggered an avalanche of protests across the US, as well as international condemnation.

With Armstrong’s audience clearly enjoying his spur-of-the-moment decision to ditch his birth country over the polarizing court move, he carried on, declaring there was “just too much f***ing stupid in the world to go back to that miserable f***ing excuse for a country.” After wrapping himself in the British flag, he promised onlookers that they would “get a lot of me in the coming days.”

“F*** the Supreme Court of America!” he yelped at another show in Huddersfield on Saturday, according to the Daily Mail.

It’s not clear how Armstrong’s self-professed relocation plans will mix with his reported 2021 filing to run for US president on the Republican ticket, but he still has months to figure that out, as the next presidential election isn’t until November 2024.

Armstrong lives in California, where abortion remains legal despite the Roe repeal. Many Democrat-run ‘blue’ states such as California and New York have passed legislation enshrining abortion protections in state law following the leak of a draft Supreme Court opinion last month hinting that the justices were preparing to overturn Roe.

The on-stage antics were hardly his first effort at mixing music with activism. Armstrong wrote an album in 2004 called ‘American Idiot,’ based on his frustrations about “not being represented by national leadership” in the US under then-President George W. Bush, which was transformed into a Broadway musical. More recently, he has been explicitly vocal about his loathing for former President Donald Trump, accusing him of “holding half the country hostage” and trotting out the seemingly inevitable Hitler comparison. Earlier this month, he performed in front of a banner reading “F*** Ted Cruz,” referring to the Republican senator from Texas.

  1. These people rant & rave, and threaten to renounce US Citizenship, move overseas once Trump got elected, etc.
    All mouth, no action. Seems kinda flakey with wanting to quit the US while announcing a run for Prez???
    They should speak to real Americans who, in standing-up for their rights, ended-up getting harassed, marginalised, gaslighted, spied on, and experienced attempts for frame-ups and malicious prosecutions by the militarized alphabet Federal Law Enforcement agencies…
    And…they are the ones who left the United States after experiencing these things, but-
    It’s really no different here, as the 5-Eyes share info, and pass along information to each other.
    One Yank who was investigated by the US Secret Service back in the US actually spotted one of the interviewing agents who crashed his home in the US caught the USSS ‘Special’ Agent on his private lane on South Island.
    By the time he went to get his camera and mobile device to call the NZ Police, the agent disappeared (Thge harassed Yank may have also gone back to his house to get his rifle, but he didn’t mention that, but that’s probably what he did VERY quietly and unannounced…)
    Those are the lengths that these bastards go to in harassing US Citizens overseas!!! (hence the new TV show ‘FBI International’ a part of your predictive programming…)
    So let’s see if Billie Joe actually leaves the ‘Good Ol’ US of A…actions speak louder than words, just as money talks (with 3 days to NZ citizenship via Zionist Banker John Key,) and bullshit walks!
    May I suggest the Ukraine???….for a place for Billie to relocate to???

  2. Who cares about Billie Joe peersonal choice? His music skills does not equal IQ, which is below par. Go and live under BoJo or make your own BiJo cocoon and hybernate.

    • His music “skills” were never that great either BTW.

      Spent thirty years sounding like he has a perpetually blocked nose, his stupid monotone voice and idiotic 90’s stoner lyrics that slowly devolved into full blown communism sometime in the early 2000’s.

      Now he’s a 50 year old hipster twit who probably still wears a Che Guevara shirt to bed and borrows his wife’s mascara without asking. Poor kids must be begging Angelina Jolie to adopt THEM next.

    • Ha, that was great sarcasm! Thank you Andrew Tate.
      As to Billie: bet he wears girl’s nickers under his Zelinsky outfit.
