Green Day Frontman Says He’s Abandoning Citizenship Over Row Reversal: ‘F**k America’

Green Day lead singer Billie Joe Armstrong said at concerts in London on Friday that he was renouncing his US citizenship because of the Supreme Court’s decision to reverse Roe v. Wade.

“Fuck America, I’m giving up my citizenship. I’m coming here,” he said during his performance on the band’s Hella Mega Tour with Fall Out Boy and Weezer at London Stadium.

“There’s too much stupidity in the world for a country to go back on that pathetic fucking excuse,” he said. “Oh, I’m not kidding. You’re going to get me a lot in the days to come.”

The “American Idiot” singer’s remarks came on the night of a court decision to overturn a landmark ruling that has given women in the US the right to an abortion for nearly 50 years. It would impose a heavy ban or outright ban on abortion in nearly half of America’s 50 states under a patchwork of individual state laws.

Green Day has been politically outspoken in the past in its music and elsewhere. Most recently, after the Uvalde, Texas, mass shooting, the band displayed a graphic reading “Fuck Ted Cruz” at a concert in Berlin, at a GOP senator for refusing to budge on gun control despite the massacre in their state. attacked.

Other artists also used performances in the UK over the weekend to blast the Supreme Court. Singer Olivia Rodrigo dedicated a duet from Lily Allen’s 2009 hit “Fuck You” to the judges responsible for the repeal during a performance at Glastonbury.

“I am devastated and terrified. So many women and so many girls are going to die because of this,” Rodrigo told the crowd. “I want to dedicate this next song to the five members of the Supreme Court who have shown us that At the end of the day, they really don’t give a shit about freedom. The song goes to the judges: Samuel Alito, Clarence Thomas, Neil Gorsuch, Amy Connie Barrett, Brett Kavanaugh. we hate you!”
