Yeah, so, here's a counterpoint take on Steve Jobs' death, from Green Day's Billie Joe Armstrong, screamed to thousands of fans at a concert in Lima one year ago. I won't repeat what he said here, but it's pretty horrible and shocking. It happens at 2:10 in the video above.

My guess is that he'd respond that it wasn't Billie Joe speaking at that moment, but rather Jesus of Suburbia, the fictional, anti-hero "everyman" character at the center of his rock opera/Broadway musical/whatever, American Idiot.

Well, it's definitely idiotic.

UPDATE: The video has been pulled by Warner Music Group. Armstrong says:

I can't wait for Steve Jobs to die of fucking cancer!
