Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong seems to be having fun with his quarantine-era series of covers, which he’s dubbed “No Fun Mondays.” This week, his cover is Kin Wilde’s 1981 single (and eventual MTV hit) “Kids In America”; the song was later covered by the Muffs in 1995 for the Clueless soundtrack.

The video is something of a lyric video, as we watch the lyrics being written in green magic marker. We also see a bass playing unicorn, who resembles Green Day’s Mike Dirnt. As we learn at the end of the video, it’s Dirnt’s birthday today (May 4). Watch the video below, and watch Kim Wilde’s original version beneath that.
