We recently mentioned that Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong and his pal Jesse Malin played a covers show on New Year’s Eve at Malin’s Lower East Side club Berlin, with an all-star lineup that included appearances by The Replacements’ Tommy Stinson, The E Street Band’s Steven Van Zandt, Blondie’s Clem Burke, The Hold Steady’s Tad Kubler, Jesse Malin collaborator Don DiLego, Billie Joe’s sons, and others throughout the night. We posted a short video of Billie Joe & co playing The Replacements’ “Color Me Impressed” (with Tommy Stinson), and we’ve now got good quality videos of almost the entire set, taken by Dana Distortion.

They did over 20 covers, including a few Ramones songs and a couple Clash songs, plus The Plimsouls’ “A Million Miles Away,” Dead Boys’ “Sonic Reducer,” Paul Collins’ The Beat’s “Walk Out of Love,” Tom Petty’s “American Girl,” New York Dolls’ “Pills,” The Kinks’ “Father Christmas,” “The Undertones’ “Teenage Kicks,” Cheap Trick’s “Surrender,” Wreckless Eric’s “Whole Wide World,” Blondie’s “One Way or Another,” and more. Billie Joe and Jesse mostly split vocals but a few songs had guest lead singers, including Jesse’s D Generation bandmate Richard Bacchus for D Generation’s “Capitol Offender,” East Village vet Tom Clark on the NY Dolls song, Kris Gruen on The Clash’s “Janie Jones,” and Berlin bartender Amanda Cross on the Blondie song. Watch all the videos below.
