With the elections right around the corner Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong and Evenescense frontwoman Amy Lee are trying to inspire people to vote, though admittedly in two different ways. Armstrong took to Instagram and posted “This has been the most unprecedented year of our lives, a pandemic. Racial uprising. As the song goes ‘wake me up when September ends.’ I plead to everyone to WAKE UP AND REGISTER TO VOTE.” Whereas Lee, in a recent interview said “It’s not so much about the politics, it’s about empowering people, All of us, all people” Both are directing people to a non-partisan voter registration site. —ARMSTRONG STORY— —LEE STORY
