Billie Joe Armstrong has spent hsi career singing for and about scrappy punk kids, and one reason he's so relatable is that he's always had the look to match.

The Green Day frontman is just 5 feet, 7 inches tall -- maybe two or three inches taller in those platform creepers -- but get him started about boredom, alienation, masturbation, war, suburban disaffection or any of the other subjects that often surface in his lyrics, and he'll pack a wallop befitting of a much bigger musician.
