There's no room for patriotism for rocker Billie Joe Armstrong in the wake of the Roe v. Wade reversal.

During a concert in London Friday, the Green Day frontman vented his frustration following the U.S. Supreme Court's ruling to overturn Roe v.
Wade, which effectively removes Americans' constitutional right to an abortion.
The 50-year-old singer might even be packing his bags for the U.K in protest.
"I'm renouncing my citizenship," said Armstrong onstage. "I'm coming here."
Armstrong continued: "There's just too much stupid in the world to go back to that miserable excuse for a country.
Oh, I'm not kidding. You're going to get a lot of me in the coming days."
Fusing the musical and the political is not new territory for Armstrong. Green Day's 2004 hit "American Idiot" took aim at the post-9/11 media landscape in the U.S.
"Don't wanna be an American idiot / One nation controlled by the media," Armstrong sings on the song.
"Information age of hysteria / It's calling out to idiot America."
Armstrong and Green Day stepped into the political arena once more at the 2016 American Music Awards.
