Green Day kicked off a special week of live performances on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon on Monday, rocking through cover of "Rip This Joint," off the Rolling Stones' 1972 benchmark release, Exile on Main St. Watch it here.
The week-long streak of cover performances -- also featuring Sheryl Crow (May 12) and Phish (May 13) -- is in honor of Exile's reissue on May 18. The song selection was appropriate for Green Day, who flaunted their classic rock influences on their latest album, 2009's 21st Century Breakdown. "Rip This Joint" is one of the Stones' faster, more frenetic jams, and the Bay Area punks revved up its energy, recruiting a second guitarist and keyboardist for the performance to blast out the tune's wild honky-tonk solos.
Green Day have been quite busy of late. Frontman Billie Joe Armstrong appear on the cover of SPIN's April issue, the band's musical American Idiot recently debuted on Broadway, and the boys are gearing up to hit the road this summer for a massive tour in continued support of 21st Century Breakdown, including a headlining slot at Chicago's Lollapalooza Festival.
