    I'm hoping that it's the former, personally.
  3. I agree. in the documentary green day the early years he gave a boy a buddy guy guitar which is pretty awesome and shows what a gracious person he is. A good guitar is not cheap

    I aspire to act like the "Oh no there's a bear in my bed" lady from the Chuck Testa adverts.
  5. This is a really cool! Love the colors. As far as the price, all of his signature guitars have been in that price range so it's really not a surprise. The cool thing about his signatures are that you're getting the actual guitar he plays on stage, not a cheaper, compromised version. I've had his 1st signature for 9 years now and I definitely feel I've gotten my money's worth.

    I actually like the new Interrupters song better but then I’m a fan of lyrics.

    New Billie Joe 2018 Signature Les Paul Jr (Blue/Red/Black)

    Probably because the “green” in the name isn’t meant to refer to the color. So many people in his IG are complaining about the price but I’m assuming this isn’t meant to be a kid’s first guitar, but one you aspire to after years of playing. Also, it’s a little rude for so many comments to complain that him sponsoring a $1,400 Gibson isn’t “punk” of him when the guy literally gives a guitar away on stage every night on tour. If you can’t figure out a way to get a crappy first guitar to learn on it’s not his fault 🙄

    Definitely wasn’t @solongfromthestars who took the sign. Anyone who’s properly met her will realise that she wouldn’t speak so strongly about her principles/beliefs (as she has a couple of pages back) and then completely go against that with her actions. Having had a look around on tumblr, it seems like the accusation is either malicious, or a mistake (I don’t know the user who made it, just what was said). I hope it’s the latter - something which can understandably happen when people are angry, though that obviously doesn’t make it better for the person being accused. I don’t know much about this whole sign thing, nor do I really wish to - the less I know, the less involved I’ll get and that just makes life a bit easier and less stressful really. I don’t think much more really needs to be said about it on GDC, and we certainly don’t need poorly informed accusations to be made, ‘calling out’ or shit-talking. I totally understand the need for you to clear things up, @basketcase4933, and it’s absolutely right that you should be able to correct some misinformation. But I also hope that this will be the last we hear about the matter unless new discussion points come to light or the person/people involved want to discuss it themselves. Apart from that, I think everything constructive/useful/meaningful that can be said on the matter already has been for the time being.

    I've always thought Oh Love was a terrible choice for a first single and really doesn't represent the album, although I quite like live performances of it (and don't start me on the video). I think Nuclear Family was a far stronger song to be a single.
  17. Yeah ok . But I feel like for a band called Green Day they really don't do the green thing that much. They might randomly use it sometimes but not much more than any other colour and it's never like "oh of course they've used green again", they barely associate themselves with it. When a band has a colour in its name you might expect them to use it as an "official" colour but with them it's only very rarely that they do a "hey look it's green because we're Green Day" thing. Hence no green guitar lol.
  18. The American Idiot video is very green, but yeah in general they do seem to avoid it 😂
  19. They did sunburst, white and yellow on previous Billie joe signature model Les Paul juniors.

    Exactly my thoughts for those four ones 😛 I think the potential on Nimrod was huge and was unfortunately wasted. The same thing applies for 21st Century Breakdown, the album was successful, 21 guns was a hit and they fucked up the following singles. I would have seen The Static Age or See The Light instead of EJN/21st. Those songs are really catchy and with Rock music being more mainstream back then I'm sure they would have performed well with a good promotion and a proper music video. For the last single, perhaps Last Night on Earth could have been an effective radio ballad.

    Ah, How did I not know this? I guess cause its quick shots of her. I was surprised when I found out dita von tease was in the redundant video. (red dress woman who removes said dress)
  22. I think it's a cool looking guitar, and I actually like the humbucker instead of a P90, but I feel like as a Gibson it won't sell much. if this was an Epiphone though and it was around $200 I bet they would sell a ton of these! I think the color options are pretty boring, I'm suprised there's no sunburst or white or yellow. also, I feel like the band purposely stays away from the color green lol. They didn't really use that color much around insomniac or nimrod but they did use it on Warning and Uno and that's it. I feel like this guitar would actually look pretty cool in an Olive Green or Lime Green in the video Billie said the goal was to make it kind of like his first guitar, which I'm pretty sure he means Blue. idk if he was just talking about the color or the sound, but the sound would explain why he went with a humbucker. It would have been cool if he did an angled humbucker on it though, I asked about it in the instagram comments on his post but I'm not expecting a response. I love that "All the Time" is in this video, such a random choice! I remember reading an article that was released when nimrod came out and it asked the band about their favorite songs on there and one of the guys said All The Time, which is weird because they rarely played it live

    Had no idea where to post this but here's someone talking about her experience being in different music videos, including Oh Love. Figured some of you guys might find it interesting!

    Songs that should have been singles

    It's funny, I have prosthetic head stuck in my head right now and I remember back in the day there were talks of making that a single but it never happened, and as much as I love that song, idk how well it would have charted. I bet the video would have been awesome though! There's also an interview where I think it was Mike said that they probably could have ridden out dookie a bit longer and squeezed a few more singles out of it, and I think Sassafras Roots would have been a great one, it's a feelgood song with a pop appeal to it and people could easily sing along. Other than that, burnout maybe could have been a single, it's a great song and they seemed to like playing it live For insomniac I'm actually kind of baffled that Westbound Sign wasn't a single, I feel like that's the most radio friendly song on the album, but also that's the most Dookie sounding song on the album so they probably wanted to get away from it. Stuart and the Ave would have been great but bleeping a swear word out of the chorus would have been weird, but if Rage Against the Machine could have Killing in the Name as a single then I guess it doesn't matter lol. I could see Armatage Shanks or Brat doing better than Stuck With Me or Walking Contradiction, even though SWM is one of my fav songs and WC is my fav video With nimrod I think Scattered and Worry Rock would have been great choices! They're both very fun songs and I think they would have done better than Redundant or even Nice Guys Finish Last. I know there was a video for Nice Guys but did it ever even receive air play on the radio? With Warning I think Church on Sunday is obvious. Maybe Castaway could have been good too. They seemed to like playing Blood Sex and Booze live but I'm glad that was never a single. I actually wouldn't be surprised if that song ended up being leftover from nimrod, it feels kinda out of place on Warning. I think I'm just gunna stop there

    I just want to say how disgusted I am that a member of GDC has called out @solongfromthestars, as her My Rage My Love My Life project, for stealing the Christie Road sign. Really sorry to bring this up again but just wanted to clear this up. It's 100% not her or anyone associated with My Rage My Love My Life.
