Yesterday the alternative world was saddened with news of the passing of Pixies and The Muffs singer Kim Shattuck. Among the tributes pouring out for one of 90’s rock’s most memorable artists was a heartfelt one from Green Day‘s Billie Joe Armstrong.
Armstrong penned a touching Instagram post about his love for Shattuck’s work, as well as her incalculable influence on the band’s breakout album Dookie.
Shattuck’s now posthumous latest work can be heard on The Muffs’ No Holiday, due out October 18. Read the full tribute below:

So sad to hear the news about Kim. She was always so cool and tough. All my interactions with her were great. She was one of my favorite song writers. When we recorded dookie we listened to the first Muffs record constantly. We will hear that rock n roll scream from heaven. @kimshattuck #kimshattuck ..
