Did you know tennis superstar Serena Williams was a Green Day fan? It’s true – and she’s an old-school fan to boot.
In fact, singer Billie Joe Armstrong says whenever she sees the band live, she puts in a request for one of their oldest songs – “Disappearing Boy”, from their debut album 39/Smooth.

Armstrong told the story on Jimmy Kimmel Live, calling Serena “one of the sweetest people.”
He also talked about his new audiobook on Audible’s “Words + Music” series called “Welcome to My Panic.” Chorus.fm describes it as, “Grammy Award winner Billie Joe Armstrong looks back on over thirty years with Green Day – from the early days of alternative rock to platinum-selling records, to Broadway. Via his decade-spanning catalogue, Armstrong contemplates both his own personal trajectory and Green Day’s influence on rock and roll history.” It will be released tomorrow, April 22nd.
