Alanis Morissette Covers Green Day's 'Basket Case'

Alanis Morissette recently covered Green Day's "Basket Case," which comes from their 1994 album, Dookie.

The singer performed the song on Jimmy Kimmel Live last Tuesday and offered up some kind words to frontman Billie Joe Armstrong, who recently checked himself into rehab.

"I've always been an advocate and supporter of artists and Billie Joe, to me, he deserves to be bowed down to," Morissette told Billboard after covering the track. "He's been in this industry for a long time and so for him to experience the consequence of a system that kind of set it up for him to fail is a travesty to me."

"I think he's braver than I am," she added. "We're all figuring it out, so let's just support the fragile artist."

Morissette's latest album, Havoc and Bright Lights, was released on August 28.
