Billie Joe Armstrong is hoping to help us through COVID-19 with a new cover every Monday.

“Welcome to No Fun Mondays,” the Green Day frontman says. “Going to release a cover song every week until we’re let back out into the world.”

This week’s installment of No Fun Monday — technically the first in the series — is a rendition of “You Can’t Put Your Arms Around a Memory,” a 1978 single by New York Dolls and The Heartbreakersmember Johnny Thunders.

Last week, Armstrong released a cover of “I Think We’re Alone Now” by Tommy James and the Shondells, but that was before he officially launched the weekly series.
