Did you know tennis superstar Serena Williams was a Green Day fan? It’s true – and she’s an old-school fan to boot.

In fact, singer Billie Joe Armstrong says whenever she sees the band live, she puts in a request for one of their oldest songs – “Disappearing Boy”, from their debut album 39/Smooth.

Armstrong told the story on Jimmy Kimmel Live, calling Serena “one of the sweetest people”.

What bands have you been going to see since their very first album? Ever see a band before they got famous?
