His hair must give him loads of extra height!
Jkiller said on 1/Feb/20
Always looked 169cm.
Peter175 said on 23/Mar/18
Not as low as 5'6.25 but I don't think he's looked a full 5'7 either
Adey P said on 10/Feb/18
I think Monkey Knees heights for the band look spot on.
Nope said on 26/Jan/18
Looks 5’3 at best

5'7 is bang on.
Monkey knees said on 28/Aug/17
As some one who works in live music production, and having met them all more than once, i can comfirm the following:

Armstrong; 5"7
Cool; 5"6
Dirnt; 5"9.5

I wrote wrong, it's: If you said THAT*
Headbanger said on 9/May/17
@Rob If you said thay, why still listed 5'7? lol

[Editor Rob: If billie is 5ft 5, then Susan Sarandon is 5ft 3.5 and hence Jude Law would be more 5ft 9 ;) Everthing is connected to Law!]
Editor Rob: well I wouldn't go 5ft 9 for Law.
Hans Meiser said on 18/Apr/17
My favourite band. I think Tre is 5'5 and Mike is 5'9.5.
AdeyP said on 24/Nov/16
When inducted into Rock n Roll Hall of Fame, BJA looks definitely taller than 5 ft 6 listed Ringo Starr. I think both wear chunky footwear. Tre Cool looked around same as Ringo or maybe slightly shorter than the percussive Scouser.

iconic 5'7er

More like this:

Billie - 5'6
Tre - 5'5"
Mike 5'8.5
James Cas said on 1/May/16
Having met the band multiple times.I'm a 5'11 guy and I can say Billie is 5'7 (although it varies he wears different shoes, sometimes once he almost looked as tall as me), Tre is around 5'6 to 5'7, Mike Dirnt is 5'10 to 5'11 but for some reasons he has a sorta bent posture while he plays and is in photoshoots with the band.
ogre said on 8/Mar/15
my son has seen billie close up a couple of times and told me that he is shorter than him. my son is 5'6 so billie is 5'5 maybe 5'6 max
Thrillie said on 14/Dec/14
I think tre is like 5'9 his somewhat taller than billie.
lelman said on 27/Sep/14
What's the guess for Mike Dirnt? He's listed as 5ft 10 and looks maybe 5ft 9ish next to Billie.
[Editor Rob: somewhere in 5ft 9 range is quite possible]
Magic said on 16/Sep/14
however i believe that Tre Cool so close to Billie Joe,I would say Tre Cool is 5'6 1/2 max 5'5 1/2 min,this if Billie Joe is 5'7
Magic said on 16/Sep/14

ahahahhaah tre cool is 5'10
Jr . King said on 13/May/14
1.69 - 1.70
Skateylou said on 10/May/14
All i know is that tre is taller than me (im 5"3) and billie joe is taller than him, i would guess around the 5"6-5"7 mark
John said on 29/Mar/14
No way. I met him. My sisters 5'7" and she was taller than him. He's like 5'6 or something
Akhil said on 7/Sep/13
5 ft 7.5 I ches
Tre Cool 2 said on 5/Sep/13
Your kind of addictided if your wanting to know his hight but thats ok I absesed
RandomHuman said on 22/Jul/13
I would say he's probably 5'7". A friend of mine has met Billie and said he looked him right in the eye. We're both 5'7" so I believe that's an accurate estimate. Billie seems like a pretty little guy, though I don't think he's scrawny at all...
paiige said on 6/Nov/12
I met him a few years ago and I'm 5'9 and he was only a little shorter than me. He's like 5'7 or 5'8
tk said on 25/Sep/12
These photos are deceiving. The angle is in favor of Armstrong. I’ve met Iggy three times (last time in 2007) and he’s not 5ft 5. He has “funny” posture, probably because of the problem with his leg but, at least to me, he seemed to be 5ft 7. Most important of all, at age 65 he still is one of the greatest rock’ n ’roll live acts.
arnie slab said on 24/Sep/12
iggy is only about 5`3. he`s tiny. 5`4 tops
Alex said on 20/Sep/12
he wears 2 inch lifts thats why hes the same as Iggy
Shaun said on 12/Sep/12
Click Here

Could Iggie Pop really be as low as 5 ft 5?
[Editor Rob: could be getting near 5ft 5.5]
Shaun said on 12/Sep/12
Click Here

Actually he has a few inches on Iggy Pop who is supposed to be 5 ft 7 I think. Rob any guesses for Iggy Pop, he's clearly not 5 ft 7!!
Shaun said on 12/Sep/12
Click Here

He looks really small framed to me, nearer than Derryck Whibley from Sum 42 size I think, although he's not as short as him. I wouldn't bet on him being over 5 ft 6 though.
Shaun said on 12/Sep/12
He can look 5'5"-5'6" quite a lot. I came here guessing 5 ft 6.
court said on 11/Aug/12
I've never met the guy but i would say he's shorter then 5'7" probely around
bj said on 30/Jul/12
He's 5'7 almost 5'8
Bale said on 5/Jun/12
Well im 12 and im 5'6.5 and when i meet him he looked about half an inch taller that me so i would say 5'7
Aaron said on 5/Jan/12
Billie often seems shorter than he is when standing next to people because the shoes he usually wears adds no height, unlike many tennis shoes commonly wore by most people that add an inch or more to height.
Ciccio said on 1/Dec/11
Definitely 5'6, not more.
Danny said on 26/Nov/11
I would say he is 5'6. For reference my dad is 5'7.5. I met BJ twice and stood right next to him on one of those occasions and I would say hes noticeably shorter than my dad. Minimum of 5'5 though, no way is he 5'2 haha! I've also stood right next to the other members of Green Day and I would hazzard a guess that Mike is 5'8 and Tre is 5'4.

jollgo said on 22/Oct/11
My son is 5' 6'' and BJ has walked past him at shows. My son said ''he's shorter than me, he's tiny''. No taller than 5'5'' at best.
Andy said on 11/Oct/11
I have always considered him to be 5'6", 5'7" with sneakers. A lot of people seem to surpass the fact, that shoes affect height. Im not saying he uses big boots or anything, but shoes are usually a good explanation for celebrities height variabilities
Trench said on 7/Oct/11
5"2/3 is completely INCORRECT. I am 5"3 and Billie Joe is taller than me, trust me. I would think 5"5 or 5"6.
bay said on 6/Aug/11
to the comment of 5'2 totally incorrect.... i am a girl and only 5'3 he exceeds my height by quite a lot 5'7 seems correct standing straight he is about the size of my mother (i happen to be the shortest in my family) so....
Zachary said on 27/Jul/11
I saw him at "American Idiot," I'm 5'10" and he was a little above my eye so 5'7" seems correct. Awesome guy though!
Joe said on 19/Jul/11
I'm 13 years old and 5'5 but I was right next to Billie when he came out of the stage door in American Idiot, I was shorter then, and I was still slightly taller than him.
559a said on 21/Jun/11
i think that billie joe armstrong is a little more.i think over 1.73.But if he really is 1.70 is OK!hE IS not tall but he is not short!
green day master said on 20/May/11
When I met him at a concert,I compared my dads height to his cause my dad is 5ft.9' and he's about 5ft.7' and for those who are comparing with the use of fuse because i seen that too and the cameras acualy make him look shorter then he acualy is,so don't just asume because i acualy met him.
Sanij said on 19/Mar/11
ohhhhhhhh..... bille,,, i love his music and way of his singing. I started listining his music since I was 9 and now I am 16 of about 5.9 inch and punkrock fannnn
T.J. said on 10/Mar/11
I've heard 5'9" claims back in the 90's
most star's heights are inflated by either themselves or media.
lala said on 4/Mar/11
hahahahahaha.. no he is not! maybe 5'5.. i'm 5'7 for sure (people think i'm taller but went to the doctor and he confirm my 5'7) and that dude is not 5'7, i met him and talk to him and everything. And there is a picture of him with juliette lewis (who is also not as tall as they say) and she is short as well, i went to her show in atl and she is a little thing.. i don't know why they say they are taller than they really are.. he is very talented and that is all i care..
Grant said on 22/Feb/11
No,No,No. He is 5'5". They tend to shoot him "big" in interviews and videos.
Wowwerslikesgerman said on 21/Feb/11
Wow I'm 5'2 and a half so he's like my friends height well 2 inches taller. How tall us mah frend? 5"5 xD
Zachary Strobel said on 19/Feb/11
I meet him signing autographs when he was in "American Idiot." 5'7" because he was up to my forehead (I'm 5'10")
Sushil kumar said on 21/Jan/11
Am sure hez around 5'7-5'8 more than tat.even though hez quite short but his talent is really high reaching the sky.tats the thing which matters
Matt said on 10/Jan/11
He's 5'7" hands down.
Maloulapalooza said on 20/Dec/10
I met him in Toronto in August, he is the height of one of my friends, who is 5'7", I'm 5'2" so it was nice to be able to see his gorgeous eyes, so deep. it was truly an out of body experience for me, i'll never forget how paralyzed i felt, what a moment in time. I don't know the right word for how that made me feel but it was beautiful.
It has always been my big dream to look into those eyes of these men who has written such beautiful and important music.
My husband is 6' tall now I wish he'd be a bit shorter, to spare my neck xD
Green Day Green Day :D
green day minded said on 19/Dec/10
i almost stand beside him during on a backstage tour, and i'm 5'7 and i think he has the same height as mine.
keegan said on 9/Dec/10
i thouht he was around 5'9 really
green day ruler said on 4/Dec/10
yeah same here but he is taller than mike dirnt and he is 5 10 so he obveously is like 6 ft and i have liked green day since i was 3 years old
Dudeguy said on 1/Nov/10
I always thought beej was around 5'6 and I thought tre and mike were around 5'10 but tre has a tendency to look short
tara said on 29/Jun/09
kinda short but still so lovable!!<3
__S said on 29/Jun/09
I think he still taller than 5'7".
Skud said on 29/Jun/09
He's 5'7 thats it. he even said he was 5'7 or damn stop debating this
Gabe said on 29/Jun/09
Man I am shocked that he seems to be even this tall. Every time I've seen him live (from a ways off) he seems really tiny, like 5'4". Thank god for this site, I guess.
Jayden said on 24/Jun/09
your being serious Adam he looked small? because my friend said he was huge!! =D
pete said on 10/Jun/09
Adam, that is the most ridiculous statement on this website. 5'4"? I don't think so.
Adam said on 19/May/09
He says he is 5'7", and thats with the lifts. He was standing next to Gwen Steffani (who is 5'7") and she was towering over him. I bet he is like 5'4"
Saffron said on 21/Apr/09
Four years on and this is still being debated.. xD
He is almost definitely 5'7".
I'm pretty certain.
By the looks of him, I'd be surprised if he was any taller, tbh.
T.J. said on 10/Feb/09
He wears giant lifts in some of the video's and concerts. Lift's that probablly make him 5'10" but I don't think he's over 5'7", he barely looks it in converse.
glenn said on 8/Feb/09
he gave me the illusion of 5-9 his doc martins,pavement advantage and me in flat shoes.
T.J. said on 8/Feb/09
I've met to celebrities. Meat Loaf and Billie Joe Armstrong. I'm 5'9" and in the picture I have of me and him, he's about two and a half inches shorter than me, but he was wearing converse which give you a quarter of an inch lift. In my oppinion, since he was basically flat footed in that picture and had horrendous posture, he's 5'7" nowhere near 5'9" which he has claimed. I'm 5'9" and there is no way he was my height.
Pat said on 19/Jan/09
No way, he's gotta be shorter than 5'7". When I was in jr. high I was as tall as billie Joe. 5'5" - 5'6". Regardless of his height, this guy rocks!
jay89 said on 16/Dec/08
1,88m means you're 6'2". we have something in common. =)
danielthedutchman said on 10/Nov/08
Perhaps they are small but as a band they are the greatest of all!!!!!
how must l calculate feat? am 1,88m(without shoes).
martijn said on 29/Oct/08
i don't think that Mike is 5'10" .. the difference between him and Billie never seems to be 3 inches.. i guess Billie is more like 5'7.5" and Mike is like 5'9" - 5'9.5"
David said on 4/Sep/08
Billie really looks 5'7", Tre 5'5" and Mike 5'10" possibly.
Floydguy89 said on 14/Aug/08
ok. so im pretty sure billie joe is around 5'9, because in thsi pciture Click Here hes wearing converse (or chucks, i just founf out thats another name for them, lol) and they vbarely add half an inch i think, pretty flat. and mike dirnt is said to be around 5'10 5'11, here he looks 5'10 but he's not standing up straight, maybe 5'11. so billie joe is 5'9, maybe 5'8.5 . im just 5'7 and curse myself for it, am 18 and spanish so its in my ****ing genes...but seriously, who would want to be taller than at most 5'11? i mean come on, thats plenty tall, and i see so many girls, usually whote gitls and some black that are t'10 and in 6 feet, and im like, too tall! the best looking tall girls are 5'9, and thats already 2 inches taller than me, only feaute i like is long legs, but shorter girls, 5'3 or something, is plenty enough, and look so much better and cuter, and tender!lol
kev said on 18/Jun/08
I know that. Billie Joe is 5'7'' , Mike Dirnt 5'10'' and Tr
Anonymous said on 2/Mar/08
yea billie joe i always thought 5'7-5'8, the bassist is like 5'11.
ryan said on 17/Feb/08
idont care what is the height of billy...

true poster.
poster said on 15/Jan/08
"Billie Joe Armstrong is 5ft 7in at the most, I think it's quite true that his small frame gives him the "illusion" of being taller."

that is true, but on the flip side (lol) I think I can see why he might look shorter than he is - he seems to have quite a big forehead (at least in this pic ), and even quite a long leck, so he looks like he could be 5'8 stood straight, but with a 5'6-5'7 body

I mean I know he's slouching, but look at how bent he is, but doesn't look barely shorter than glenn, and then look at the shoulder height levels, I reckon they'd (shoulder level) would still be a good 2" below glenn even stood straight, even though (from this pic) it almost looks like he (billy joe) could be at least glenn's height here stood straight
glenn said on 14/Jan/08
at first i thought you were nuts.but i see it.i saw him look 5-9 10 years ago.but he is 5-7.maybe 5-8.
Deec said on 12/Jan/08
I think if billie stood up straight he would be taller than glen.
Screamo-boy777 said on 3/Nov/07

Stacie said on 6/Jul/07
thats true. my friend is like 5'5" and she can look so much taller than me(i'm 5'3" tops). Yeah i do slouch a tiny bit, but she has really long legs which makes her look like 5 in taller than me if were standing next to each other. I swear somebody was all(to me) is that as tall as you are? man you can't be more than 5 feet tall. I have short legs and all so physical features do play parts in how tall you look now matter the height(as long as its reasonablly shorter).

But who really care about his actual height anyway, somebody take his shoes off and bring a measuring tape to the hotel room. He's a great guitarist and idol so why do you need his exact height to admire the guy???
KillingJOK3 said on 5/Jul/07
I agree with Mr.T me and my colleague are pretty much the same height but he looks bigger than me cause his shoulders are more broad and he's well proportioned.
Mr. T said on 19/Jun/07
He has a really small frame that makes him look shorter. I have a friend who's 5'7", just marginally taller than me but can look shorter as he has a much smaller build (shoulder-to-shoulder) than mine despite being thirty pounds heavy (I'm a rake). Skinniness does not make you taller-looking, it's more in your shoulders.
xD said on 9/May/07
4" heel? Get real. Tre is like 5'6", Billie looks taller. He's standing on the monitors most of the time though..
chris domino said on 6/May/07
I have known Billy Joe for a long time. He's exactly the same height as myself, which is 5'7". Check out my Myspace at Click Here and you'll see a picture of me and him standing together. Case closed!
Franco said on 30/Apr/07
Glenn....Billy is 5'7 indeed, the illusion is due to his thinner body compared to say someone like you. unfortunately most of the time he got these weird jeans on making his legs appear very short, if he ever dressed like any other guy (proper) he would look taller than you because of his body frame.

my 0.02$
glenn said on 18/Mar/07
i once saw him give me the strange illusion of being 5-9.he could be 5-8.most likely 5-7.yes,im standing as straight as possible.
Kevin said on 13/Mar/07
Billie Joe wears heels all the time, because in his american idiot premiere he had a 4 inches heel! i think 5'6-5'7 max
Greendaylover said on 13/Mar/07
oh my gosh he's 5ft7 that's pretty tall but cool ,i'd really love to meet him but i have not been that lucky but i've been to green day cncerts and yeah they definatly rock oh yeah and just to reminde you Billie Joe Armstrong rocks And Of coure Green Day dose too --Bye
Courtney said on 12/Mar/07
billie joe's probably about 5"7. i got to "meet" him [actually got to play his guitar on stage], he's definetly no taller than 5"8.
broken_poet said on 24/Jan/07
"Wilhelm Fink" <--
That guy is really Billie.
B.J. is a friend of mine, not a very close one, but we do talk semi-often.
I asked him about it and he said that that's really him but the other one claiming to be Billie Joe is just a poser.
Austrian said on 24/Jan/07


the shoes in that pic are a joke :D
jason said on 14/Jan/07
he locks taller then 5-7 in the pic with glenn, glenn is straighten up, billie isent, he is slouching,and even after that is´s only a 3 cm difference, i would say he is taller then 5-7 i`de would at least give him 171-172 cm, thats pretty short anyway, and come on the guy is worth it he have done a fiew good songs with green day over the years:) ( not a fan, more in to rock)
Glenn said on 29/Dec/06
No,Jenna,it was him returning to his hotel after a cd signing or concert.this is the front of his hotel.bodyguard looming.
Jenna said on 28/Dec/06
Okay first, his name is Billie Joe, NOT Billy ok. He is 5'7 feet tall. O and are u at a pub in that pic?? coz thats what it looks like.
Glenn said on 5/Dec/06
In the summer he made connecting flights,but hasnt walked these streets in a year.very friendly and poses now.if you can get passed the photogs.
Glenn said on 4/Dec/06
Well I got nasty with a couple people cause me and at least one other,maybe 2 thought that was Pitt too,cause of what you biggie.though,I wouldnt find it strange a friend would bring it to Pitts attention.

[Editor Rob: ok, no problems. How's the Pitt situation, he ever appearing in NY lately, still impossible to get?]
Glenn said on 4/Dec/06
Rob I thought you said celebs DO visit the site? obviously they have better things to do.but Im sure a couple big ones visited.and I think you said that too.

[Editor Rob: yes, a number I personally know have visited and they know that my tongue is always in my cheek. Obviously with 3 million visitors a year some others might stumbled across a page here and there.

But Pitt, nah that was just somebody typing the name, I doubt he'd have even heard of celebheights...]
Glenn said on 14/Oct/06
ROB SAID it was Brad I believed it.Im rude cause you insult my intelligence.
anonymous said on 14/Oct/06
have you actually talked about this site with them and did they make references in detail to the comments that they allegedly made? didn't think so.... no need to be rude glenn, but I just like 1 billion other people on this earth have internet access and know how to spell the word "Billie Joe Armstrong" and Brad Pitt. What does the word imposter mean?
anonymous said on 11/Oct/06
hahaha, glenn, no offense, but you're pretty gullible if you think that that was really billie joe who just posted on september 7th.
antron said on 2/Oct/06
bjas wife, at 5'10" Mike is not short for a man in the US at all (5'9"), let alone "significantly short for a man"...and the other guys are shorter... though not super short
Glenn said on 8/Sep/06
Billie-once I saw you leave the NBC building and you were 5-9! other times 5-8.lately looking 5-7.whats the new stuff like? Nimrod and Warning are my faves.Warning was true punk cause it was bold in its experimitation.
Billie Joe Armstrong said on 7/Sep/06
Guys please settle down i am 5'7" so just deal with it ok now im going to let u all know Green Day is coming out with a new cd and it has 15 new songs so but we are still working on it ok that is all im going to say Billie out
Anonymous said on 29/Aug/06
i always thought billie had a small frame and didn't think he would be taller than me(i'm 5 5)but he is 5 6.5 or 5'7
to tell the truth i wouldn't have cared if he was 5 2 as long he made really good music
Jones said on 3/Aug/06
Tre is 5'6" (for the person who brought that up before) and Billie Joe IS 5'7". Mike is 5'10" if anyone's curious.
aussie chick said on 17/Jul/06
me again, yer i agree with HHT, he is a little cutie and i have seen heaps of pictures next to mike and tre and he is so short!! 5ft 6"
billie lover said on 24/Jun/06
i met him at a concert an i am 5'3in he was a little tallerr than me but not much so i think around 5'6 i have pictures to prove it

[Editor Rob: why not email to me?]
Why do u care? said on 24/Jun/06
Well if it makes anyone here feel better- My mom works for some guy and he id 5ft 2in and his girlfriend is 5ft 6in! Anyway- Why Do u care????????????????????
HHT said on 23/Jun/06
he is pretty tiny for a guy, he wears his huge a** creepers (which are pretty hot) have you noticed how he is always farther forward than Mike and Tre in pictures? thats cause he so short! my mom is taller than him by 4 in. hes a CUTIE!!!
Billie freak said on 18/Jun/06
Billie is is taller than Tre, so i don't know what the problem is? He is sexy and he is a rockstar, so why do you people care about his height anyway? damm!!!!!
Doug said on 13/Jun/06
Last year at a Green Day concert I went to with my friend we saw Billie Joe and on stage he was wearing these shoes that gave him a least an inch to his height. He is listed everywhere at 5'6" so that is probably the most accurate for him. 5'6"
aussie chick said on 5/Jun/06
Billie is probobly wearing his high platform shoes...or maybe he is standing on a step or something because he can't be that tall, then again, they always put him in front of Tre and mike which makes him look taller but i still reckon he rocks the world!! and if billie is reading this please keep your hair that colour because it looks fabulous....don't go blonde...
Ps 5ft 7 means that you are about 167.74 cm, that is pretty short!!
I reackon billie is about 5ft 6!!!
British Guy said on 27/May/06
I think this guy is no more than 5ft 5in...

I agree with this "Anonymous" person has small frame!!

Anonymous said on 25/May/06
Well, he looks 5'8" by Glenn. So, subtract the riot boots and you have a 5'5" to 5'6" Billie Joe. (which matches his frame).
Mina said on 17/May/06

Well glenn once said that he shifts between 5'7.25 and 5'7.75. If it's night when they took the photograph than glenn might be barely over 5'7.25 and that would seem to make billy 5'6.5 - 5'7. BUT this would be an estimate for Billy's lowest height.

i didnt know that he was not that tall.the first time i noticed was when he was in the boulevard of broken dreams video he was wearing high platformshoes so i questioned my self why is he wearing these kind of of shoes i never seen a man wear these type of shoes so i went on the internet i checked and then thats how i discovered of course he is the hottest rocker in the world he is so cute i havt to admit its really cute that he is very small and not tall i say that men who are very short are very sweet and cute so that is one thing that makes billie joe armstrong really cute.if you are reading this billie joe you have a number one fan i think you are really hot and sexy you are mostly cute and tiny keep on rockin i love you with all my heart no matter who you are or what you look like because in everyway you are really a handsome man.

I didnt know he was 5'7" i thought he was 5 feet even but i guess i was wrong my uncle told me he was 5 feet even then i heard 5 feet 1 inch but i guess 5'7" is accurate ive never met him but i would like to he seems like a cool guy to hang out with, and i can tell him my favorite green day song, boulevard of broken dreams, you know 1 rapper id like to meet if i could pick 1 its 50 cent and hes 6 feet even, other site say other heights but 6 feet seems accurate

Why do people come onto a website called celebheights and say, "Who cares how tall they are"?????? Why would you go on a site like this and then say you don't care how tall someone is?? That's just stupid!

MD said on 18/Jan/06
Pharrell is not taller than 5'8" (what he is listed at near everywhere), and I think it maybe a full inch shorter than that. Let us now fool ourselves.
abcdefg said on 18/Jan/06
if you look at pictures of him with pharrell at the 47th grammys you can see he's about the same height if not taller, and pharrell is reportedly 5"8.5, and at these awards billie joe wasn't wearing platforms
A.J said on 14/Jan/06
I personally think that it is cute that he is short, it is also hilarious how people obsees over this. I also have noticed the big sneakers he wears! lol
Billie Joe's BITCH! xxx said on 8/Jan/06
When I heard that Billie was just 5 ft 7.5 in, it really did surprize me because he does look taller. (FACT) The reason why Billie may look taller in pictures is cause the photographer puts him in the middle of Mike n Tre and pulls him forward in the photo shoot. x x x x Stef x x x x
Green_Day_obsesser said on 3/Jan/06
well, we'll put it this way, Billie Joe is 8 inches taller than me.. so i won't really critisize because i have no room to talk..

gyllenhaalic823 said on 3/Jan/06
my little sister wants to stab at adrienne right now. lol
heights of the people in Green Day:
Tré (awesome dude!!) Cool: 5'4-5" (shorter than Dustin Hoffman woah lol Dustin is cool)
Mike Dirnt: 5'10" (tallest member of the band)
and finally . . .
the famous (or infamous depending on your political/moral views) bj armstrong! : 5'7-7.5"
He's teensy. He has really short legs too which make him look shorter, so I will give him the benefit of the doubt and say he's somewhere in between 5'7" and 5'7.5", even though he can look closer towards the 5'7" at times.
well at least i'm 5'1" and 13 1/2. *sigh* I wish I was taller.
uhh_person said on 1/Jan/06

Rob: Billy is about 5'5" - 6". Susan sarandon is tiny. I have met Goldie and seen her on several occasions and she is about 5'4-5" (I am 5'8") and Susan is shorter. I stood next to Law in at a theater in London (5'8" wearing flats that probably ad an inch) and he was my height (actually a bit shorter but that is an unpopular thing to say around here).

Hilery Earl said on 4/Dec/05
I love everything Green Day does! He's 5'8" I'm 5'6"! We're pretty close! But why bothering to know? He's still the greatest singer there ever was on earth!
Green_Jane said on 29/Nov/05
He is 5'8'' people! I'm 5'10'' and he is just a little shorter than me (2''). But why do you care that much? He still rocks the world around, doesn't he? Yeah, I thought you might agree.... Peace out!
Anonymous said on 28/Nov/05
Nay! Billie Joe is probably 5'8.
matt said on 17/Nov/05
after years of browsing nirvanas and grendays pictures, i must say, billiejoe is shorter than 5'7 or ... kurt cobain is taller than 5'7 ... those two guys CANT be at the same height, look at the pics yourself if you dont believe
ChickKick said on 16/Nov/05
Well, I met him and Mike at a concert and Mike was at least 5'10 and Billie was about three inches shorter. He was only a little taller than me and I'm 5'6. But also you have to take his shoes into account, those have a couple of inches on them as well. It's amazing what gorgeous men can get away with.
Viper652 said on 13/Nov/05
Billie Joe is the shortest looking 5-7 guy I have ever seen on TV.
American Idiot said on 12/Nov/05
I met Billie Joe at a concert in LA. He's 5"7 he was only two inches taller than me.
Megan said on 10/Nov/05
I'd guess He's about 5'6" or 5'7". Not really bothered, kinda think it's funny that so many people care that much!
bjas wife said on 4/Nov/05

LOVE YA BILLIE JOE! HI SPEEDY HI JAKOB HI JOEY AND....................I GUESS ADRIENNE UHHHHHH WISH I WERE YOU!OH YEAH HI MIKE AND TRE AND RIP GRAVEY
Anonymous said on 1/Nov/05
Sighting: Monday, 1/3, saw all three members of Green Day exiting the Mercer Hotel around 7pm. they were all rather short (none above 5’7, I’d say), and billy joe was sporting some serious black eye makeup and black leather get-up
nobody said on 28/Oct/05
i met him once. i barely came up to his shoulder lol. I'm 4'8" ((sad for a 15 years old lol)) so i think 5'7" is about right.

Tatiana Duran said on 19/Oct/05
Billie Joe is actually 5'8 now. I checked the internet for updated interviews.
Mrs Billie Joe Armstrong said on 13/Oct/05
Yeah, well it doesn't bother me, you know, cos i'm only 5"5! Mike's 5"10, that's not THAT tall... i used to want to be that tall, but now because Billie is only 5"7 - it's all good. But, you know guys, 5"5 sells him short... snigger. Rock on Scotland!!! ;-)
Obsessed Fan said on 12/Oct/05
Billie Joe is 5'7. I would know. I met him at a signing. and we were both wearing chucks (converse all stars, for the losers who dont know...) and we both happened to be the same height. Sad(because i'm only 15) but.. whatever... He still f-ing rocks on stage!! Mike is tall! i think he's like 5'10 or 5'11... and Tre is like 5'6 or 5'7. I think i may have been taller that Tre, but i couldn't tell because he was wearing creepers.
AWOL said on 5/Oct/05
He always wears extremely thick sole black sneakers, check him out in the recent videos.
Bin Gamble said on 14/Sep/05
I could of swore he was shorter then benji madden if not the same height... so no way could he be more then 5'7"
NO WAY!!! and tot hat person going on bout his height. people get bored, people like to know these things, and some people just wanna be able to go awwwww when they find out his fecking height.
British Guy said on 21/Aug/05
Have Noticed The Band,

Will Be Playing In Glasgow Later,

This Year Will Take Some Pics, If Possible...

I Believe This Is The Real Heights Of The Guys.

Tre' - 5ft 4in
Mike - 5ft 10in
Billie - 5ft 5in

[Editor Rob: If billie is 5ft 5, then Susan Sarandon is 5ft 3.5 and hence Jude Law would be more 5ft 9 ;) Everthing is connected to Law!]

Would You Agree? Or Am I Undercutting Them?
Anonymous said on 1/Aug/05
Saw Billie Joe on SNL standing right next to Cameron Diaz and Justin Timberlake. He was about the same height as Cameron (I've heard her say she's 5'9"), maybe even a half an inch taller than her. And he only looked to be 2.5 - 3 inches shorter than Justin, who is 6 Ft. I was surprised because he looks so short on stage, maybe because he's got short legs.
British Guy said on 18/Jul/05
Nice To See You Back Rob,

I Can Assure You Billie Is 5ft 5in...

I Met Him At The Glasgow SECC He Had Platforms On,

These Brought Him To About 5ft 8in, A Really Nice Guy, Bless Him,

I Also Met Tre' Cool Smaller Than Anticipated, Did Not Have Lifts, I Think...
Z2 said on 10/Jul/05
In the pictures you posted, Billie Joe Armstrong looks 5'6" in shoe there. Sarandon also looks 5'4" in shoe, in those photo's. Sarandon may have been that height(171cm) years ago, but now she does look 5'4"(in shoe). I think Billie Joe's height is 5'5". He looks as though he's wearing "special shoes" in those pictures. Like he "stuffed" his shoes from inside to fool us.
Z2 said on 10/Jul/05
Most of Billie Joe's sites list him as 5'6". He does look it and that's why I think he wears chunky heels.

[Editor Rob: shot 1 shot 2. Billy Joe 170cm, Susan Sarandon 171cm (not on here mind you ;)). Or the fan site Billy Joe 5ft 6, Sarandon 5ft 4? Bill Murray 6ft 3, Sarandon 5ft 7.5, Billy Joe 5ft 9.5? In the voice of Short Circuit robot..."This does not compute!"]
billie'slover said on 28/Jun/05
billie is a awesome singer people should not care tall he is as longer as he is a good person! why should people care how tall he is it makes no difference.he HOT, has a nice body ,funny and a great singer, thats all that matters. And just for the record i think he is like 5'7 or 5'8. i would love to meet his short body!!!!!!
goth lady said on 25/Jun/05
Hm....its impossible to seems like he is 5'5' at some point. But sometimes he's like 5'6' - 5'7'......i think 5'7' is kinda too tall for him...You know its weird, the fact that he is short makes him more attractive....hes like a small cute guy u wud die to hug...Lol...
Anonymous said on 24/Jun/05
u guys .... bj is at least 5"9 he has short legs and a long body and he slouches its easy to lose a coupla inches im nearly 5"10 so i know all about it!

i don't care how tall he is he's cute!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
J. said on 17/Apr/05
He is SO not close to 5'8"!!!! On a good day, Billie boy is on the 5'5"- 5'6.75" range. He has the frame of someone who's much shorter than average.

[Editor Rob: J, sorry dude I just can't see it. Of course he's not as tall as Kanye West...but in the series of shots beside Susan Sarandon with both in normal shoes he looks taller by 1.5 inches or so.]
I love BJ! said on 17/Apr/05
It says on another website that he is only 5"5!?!?! which one of you is telling the truth, and also Mike is 5"10!

[Editor Rob: Ok, I tried to find a good comparison pic where he wasn't wearing any dodgy footwear. If you believe that Susan Sarandon is still 5ft 7.5 then Billy Joe is 5ft 9. Of course, with Sarandon approaching 60 she has lost some height over the years and is fighting with 5ft 6. Billy Joe 5ft 5 and Sarandon 5ft 3.5 ;)]
capnjapn said on 13/Apr/05
I met him 5-6 ago when I was working at Macys in Concord. I'm 5'6" on a good day, he was about the same or 5'7" tops - he used to look shorter cause he'd slouch some. Met Mike @ the Ruby Room, he's probably an even 5'11"
green day fan! said on 8/Apr/05
i live in minnesota where his wife adrienne is shes good friends iwth my sis adn there hereat my house right now i sowed her this she thought it was funny she said billie is about 5 9 shes close to 6 foot shes relaly tall
Green Day Fanatic said on 23/Mar/05
Does the 5'7" height include his shoes? I mean come on, we all know his shoes have a good 2-3 inches of rubber on them!

[Editor Rob: I think Billy Joe gets maligned for being a shorty in the same way Phil Collins used to get described as 5ft 5 by many who met him. I personally reckon anything less than 170cm would be short changing the guy.]
The Future Mrs. B. J. Armstrong said on 17/Mar/05
FINALLY, a site that has his height! *happy dance* Sorry but I've been looking for how tall he is for over two weeks! This is the first site I've been to that says how tall he is! ^_^ Now my comment: he's taller than I thought! and thats a good thing cause I'm still growing and i'm almost 6ft! This is very good news for me, it won't be to hard to over power him when I commandeer him...can you commandeer someone or is that just kidnapping?
God said on 6/Mar/05

I'm 5'7" and when my friends and I met him, he was about my height, so yeah, that seems accurate.
GreenDayGirl said on 27/Feb/05
I'm 5'5 and when I met him at a concert he was only like 2-3 inches the most taller than me, so yea he is probably around 5'7 :)
