The members of Green Day have decades of performance experience under their belts, but that doesn't mean there aren't songs that they think are too hard to play live. For Billie Joe Armstrong, "Panic Song" off 1995's Insomniac is one of those tracks.

The Green Day frontman has been sharing videos of fans covering the band's songs on Instagram to close out the year, and had an interesting exchange with a follower after posting a cover of "Macy's Day Parade."

"Billie why you never played PANIC SONG live? That song is pure fire," a fan commented on the video, and not only did the rockstar respond, but he was also bluntly honest.

"it's too hard and I'm too lazy," he admitted.

Check out the post and hilarious interaction below.
