Billie Joe Armstrong Covers ‘That Thing You Do’ In Tribute To Adam Schlesinger

Green Day frontman, Billie Joe Armstrong has shared a moving rendition of the song “That Thing You Do,” which was written by the late Adam Schlesinger for the 1996 movie of the same name.

“Another week, another No Fun Mondays,” Armstrong wrote in the description of the video. “Today’s song is a tribute to the late Adam Schlesinger and the incredible music he wrote including this one, ‘That Thing You Do.'”

For the past several weeks, Armstrong has taken to releasing one cover song per week in his “No Fun Mondays” series in an effort to entertain the tens of thousands of people who are currently under lockdown to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.

An award-winning singer-songwriter and Fountains of Wayne member, Schlesinger passed away on April 19 at the age of 52 due to complications caused by the coronavirus.
