Billie Joe Armstrong

(hennemusic) Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong is streaming his version of the 1975 Eric Carmen single, "That's Rock 'n' Roll", in the latest installment of his weekly cover song series.

"Welcome to another No Fun Monday," says Armstrong. "Today's song is 'That's Rock 'n' Roll' by Eric Carmen who was also in The Raspberries. However the first time I heard this song was by teen heartthrob Shaun Cassidy. My sisters would dance around the house to this one!"

The tune was the third international single from Carmen's self-titled solo debut after finding success with his former band, the Cleveland-based Raspberries; it followed a pair of US Top 15 hits: "All By Myself" and "Never Gonna Fall In Love Again."

While Carmen didn't issue the tune in the US, pop star Shaun Cassidy's version a year later reached No. 3 on the Billboard Hot 100. Check out the cover version here.
