MUST SEE VIDEO: The Tantrum That Sent Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong To Rehab

Green Day's lead singer Billie Joe Armstrong is headed to rehab for substance abuse... and a breakdown on stage was apparently the breaking point that brought him to his senses.

Green Day’s lead singer Billie Joe Armstrong is headed to rehab for substance abuse… and a breakdown on stage was apparently the breaking point that brought him to his senses.

Armstrong went crazy on stage at a Las Vegas music festival. He screamed obscenities, went off on Justin Bieber then smashed his guitar on stage. Sadly, some of the crowd seemed to love the whole thing, although there is a point where you get the sense people are wondering if it’s part of the act, or a legitimate ‘mental moment.’ It’s understsandable they were initially a bit confused. Armstronghad cut short a performance of the band’s 1994 hit “Basket Case,” screaming that he wanted to play a new song. Then he got ticked off that he had been given a one minute warning – signaling that the band had just one minute left onstage before the next act was to come up. He didn’t like the idea apparently.

The band’s rep told TMZ,  “Green day wants to apologize to those they offended at the iHeartRadio Festival in Las Vegas.”

Here’s the moment unfolding on tape:
