Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong shared a cover of Billy Bragg classic "A New England" as part of his No Fun Mondays lockdown cover series.

"Welcome to No Fun Monday on a Friday because no one knows what day it is anyway," Armstrong wrote in the description for the new cover, which was shared on Friday, July 10. "I love this song penned by Billy Bragg. Also a great version by Kirsty MacColl."

Armstrong had announced his plans to release a cover song every week until "we're let back out into the world."

Armstrong has previously covered "I Think We're Alone Now" by Tommy James and The Shondells, "You Can't Put Your Arms Around a Memory," a 1978 solo single by late New York Dolls lead guitarist Johnny Thunders, and John Lennon's protest song "Gimme Some Truth."

Green Day were scheduled to be out on the road in support of their latest album Father of All Motherf**kers, but like almost all other acts they had to cancel their trek due to the coronavirus pandemic.
