Billie Joe Armstrong decided to do something a little different for the third installment of his "No Fun Mondays" quarantine series this week and recruited a member of the band he was covering to help perform the song. The Green Day frontman performed The Bangles' "Manic Monday" with none other than the band's singer/guitarist Susanna Hoffs. While Armstrong sits on his couch with his dog Lenny curled up next to him, Hoffs is shown bouncing around her room playing the electric guitar.

Armstrong unveiled his first cover, a timely rendition of Tommy James & The Shondells' 1967 hit "I Think I'm Alone Now," a couple weeks ago. "I figure if we have to spend this time in isolation at least we can be alone together," he said at the time. That was followed by a cover of Johnny Thunders' 1978 track "You Can't Put Your Arms Around A Memory" last week. Watch him and Hoffs cover "Manic Monday" below.
