Billie Joe Armstrong: PSY is 'the herpes of music'

WENN

Green Day singer-guitarist Billie Joe Armstrong has taken aim at South Korean pop sensation PSY, calling the "Gangnam Style" hit-maker the "herpes" of music.

The "American Idiot" singer was in rehab tackling substance abuse issues as PSY took over the world's charts with his catchy dance anthem last year, and now that the Asian superstar is back with his "Gangnam Style" follow-up, "Gentleman," Armstrong has taken to his Instagram page to fire off at the wacky star.

The punk rocker writes, "This dude is the herpes of music. Once you think it's gone, it comes back. #herpes #flareup #pleasegoaway."

Armstrong's feelings aren't echoed by all snarling rockers. In fact, former Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher recently revealed he's a big fan.

In a Web chat with Japanese fans in February, the British rocker was asked if he liked PSY's breakout global hit and said, "I think it's an absolute classic. I love it. My kid dances to it every morning and it makes me chuckle and spit out my Corn Flakes."
