Music and Media : Green Day’s Billie Joe Has an Instagram Clone

Today in the era of social media, there can be an Instagram account for anything. For businesses, bands, fan pages or even the family pet. I was scrolling through my regular Instagram feed when one fan page I followed posted an interesting picture.

First thinking, ‘Oh it’s a Green Day fan page, it’s an old photo of Billie. That’s awesome.’

Then I looked at the caption, where it mentioned Instagram user Martin Polak.

Fellow punk rocker, Martin Polak (of The Desperate Mind) has a very interesting Instagram account… as he is the spitting image of Green Day frontman, Billie Joe Armstrong.

And the resemblance is uncanny.

He often even uploads Green Day covers to the Instagram page as well, even showing off his vocal chops to match the iconic singer.

 

Green Day fans, if Billie Joe Armstrong ever goes down we have found the perfect replacement thanks to Instagram and the powers of social media. Trust me, I started to get confused that I wasn’t looking at Billie Joe, it makes you take a double take… either way it is incredible.

    It’s not BJ anyway. I don’t know who that is impersonating him, maybe it’s a clone? All I know is that sometime around 2013ish someone (who passes in the looks department) with a different voice showed up singing GD songs, and it’s not even close to the same person! Just watch the YT video called something like “Billie Joe voice change”, and listen to the cover songs like “stand by me”, “shout”, and all the other classic rock songs they’ve been doing.
