Green Day's front man Billie Joe Armstrong is entering rehab for substance abuse ... a rep for the band tells TMZ.

The news comes just two days after Armstrong went ballistic in Vegas during a performance at the iHeart Radio Music Festival. He was videotaped screaming obscenities, slamming Justin Bieber and violently smashing his guitar on-stage.

The band's rep tells TMZ,  "Green day wants to apologize to those they offended at the iHeartRadio Festival in Las Vegas."



The rep adds, "The band regretfully must postpone some of their upcoming promotional appearances.“

Isn't that normal behavior fr a rock star? I think so it isn't shocking at all to me. And who cares about Justin Beiber anyway, his music is for kids in my opnion.

Going to phony PR rehab puts the last nail in the pseudo-punk coffin that was already shut by making their songs into a musical.

Billie Joe wouldn't apologize, he wouldnt give two f*cks about who he offended to be honest.
It was such a management move to apologize.
He had EVERY RIGHT to be mad, he's been around since the late 80s, who the f*ck are iheart radio to cut his performance for Usher? get the f&ck out of here.
Billie, im praying for you and your recovery.

This would be normal behavior in a clubs in Berkeley/Oakland where they statrted. GD seems like they want the corporate money but hate what goes back with it. Go back to your roots boys and ditch the drugs...you don't need em!

Hope Billie gets some much needed rest......but he still had every right to tell them what they did was disrespectful. I have huge RESPECT for him and you only have to watch the footage in full to know what he did was right!!!
