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.“

Never liked Greenday, nor their anti-american politics. The lead clown has a history of immature behavior in public. Let's hope he has a chance to hear his "music" when he's sober so he can realize severe change is called for.

Honestly Speaking This Is B.S. He all The Right To Be Pist Of And Say What He Did And Do What What He Did. This Band I Must Say Is Not One I Listen To But I Do Respect The Fact They Have Been Around For A Very Long Time. Sadly The Media Dosent Care And Will Never Give Respect Were Its Due. Out With The Old And In With The New Isn't That Right TMZ.

After all these years and here he is once again still trying way too hard to be "punk" but will be nothing more than a poser forever. Washed up garbage.
