Some musicians’ kids end up following in their parent’s footsteps, but the results are typically mixed; not everyone can be Jakob Dylan and start a band like The Wallflowers or Miley Cyrus and do whatever it is she’s doing now with The Flaming Lips.
Jakob Armstrong, son of Green Day singer Billie Joe Armstrong, is a solo artist going by the name of Jakob Danger. And, to be honest, the 16-year-old is making some great music.

The teenager recently signed to Burger Records, who will release his debut EP on cassette tape soon.
