Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong stopped into "Conan" on Wednesday where he performed “Ordinary World” from the band’s latest record Revolution Radio. Armstrong took the stage with just his acoustic guitar and crooned the Dylan-esque closer to the album. The stage was bare, the lights were sparse, but the song really said it all. Conan’s introduction, however, was a bit much considering the nature of the song. We forgive you, Coco. You can check out Billie Joe Armstrong’s performance on Conan below.
As Rolling Stone pointed out, Armstrong wrote “Ordinary World” for a film by the same name. In the movie, Armstrong plays an aging musician alongside Fred Armisen and Selma Blair. The film was released in October. While he may have written the tune for the movie, “Ordinary World” is a great closer to Revolution Radio and fits in well on the socio-politically charged album.
Green Day will be embarking on their “Revolution Radio” tour in 2017. Click here to browse AXS for tickets to select dates.
