Billie Joe Armstrong Net Worth: Billie Joe Armstrong is an American singer, songwriter, musician, guitarist and multi-instrumentalist who has a net worth of $55 million. Billie Joe Armstrong was born February 17, 1972 in Oakland, California. He is best known as the lead vocalist, principal songwriter and guitarist of punk rock band Green Day, cofounded by Armstrong with band mate Mike Dirnt. Armstrong developed an interest in music at a young age and recorded his first song at the age of five. He met Mike Dirnt while attending elementary school and the two bonded over their mutual interest in music. They formed the band Sweet Children when they were 15 years old. The band changed its name to Green Day and would later achieve massive commercial success. Green Day's first two albums, 39/Smooth and Kerplunk!, solidified their place in the Southern California punk scene of the early '90s; however, when 1994's Dookie was released on a major label and sold more than $8 million copies, Green Day were accused of selling out. With each Green Day album, Armstrong continued to ignore the criticisms of the group's early fans as the band proceeded to strengthen its status within the mainstream, culminating in 2004's American Idiot, a rock opera that became a surprise international success, a multi-platinum Grammy winner and the best-reviewed album of the band's career. Outside of Green Day, Armstrong teamed with jazz singer and pianist Norah Jones in a project to recreate the classic 1958 Everly Brothers album Songs Our Daddy Taught Us. Recorded in nine days with bassist Tim Luntzel and drummer Dan Rieser, Foreverly was released in 2013. Armstrong married his girlfriend Adrienne Nesser in June 1994; nearly a year later their first child, Joseph Marcicano, was born. Armstrong has had his share of legal troubles: He was arrested in early 1996 after a show in Wisconsin for indecent exposure; arrested in January 2003 for drinking and driving after being pulled over for speeding; kicked off a Southwest Airlines flight for wearing his pants too low (2011); became agitated on September 21, 2012 during a Green Day performance at Las Vegas' iHeartRadio Music Festival and stopped the band's set midway through a song and went into an expletive-filled rant. Two days after the scene he made at the IHeartRadio Festival, Green Day announced that Armstrong was seeking treatment for an unspecified substance abuse problem.
