    Random Green Day News

    Another mention of Green Day in this NME article "Nine pop-punk records to look out for in 2019": https://www.nme.com/blogs/nme-blogs/nine-pop-punk-records-look-2019-2451736 This is what they say: Green Day What: Untitled new album When: TBC What to expect: After the band returned to what they knew on 2016’s ‘Revolution Radio’, an album of stadium-ready protest anthems, Green Day look set to shake things up with album 13. They’ve stopped working with their manager of 20 years to join Crush Music, who know a thing or two about forward facing pop-punk, looking after Weezer, Panic! At The Disco and Fall Out Boy. But fear not, old skool fans, Green Day have also playing the whole of ‘Dookie’ during rehearsals. Did someone say 25th anniversary tour? What they say: “I’m writing new songs for gd now,” Billie Joe Armstrong told fans ________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Green Day also get a couple of mentions in this Loudwire article "50 Rock Songs That Defined 2009" - the first for "21 Guns" and the second for "Know Your Enemy": http://loudwire.com/rock-songs-defined-2009/ This is what they have to say: Green Day, '21 Guns' Green Day took their time following up the monster success of their ‘American Idiot’ album, but when they finally did return a half decade later, the ‘21st Century Breakdown’ album showed no signs of backing down from the social commentary. “21 Guns,” which was the second single to drop from the album, spoke to the horrors of being pushed to the brink while at war. The song — bolstered by inclusion on the ‘Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen’ soundtrack — climbed to No. 3 Alternative, was a Top 20 single at Mainstream Rock radio, crossed over to hit No. 22 on the Billboard Hot 100 and went on to be a platinum selling single. Green Day, 'Know Your Enemy' It didn’t take long to see that Green Day’s popularity was still intact after a five-year spell between albums. The anthemic rallying cry “Know Your Enemy” shot straight to No. 1 at both Alternative and Mainstream Rock radio, with Billie Joe Armstrong imploring the listener to take a closer look at the messages the media provides. The powerful messaging also fit well with the WWE, which claimed “Know Your Enemy” as a Smackdown theme. The gold-selling single got their 2009 return off on the right foot.

    Oh awesome gonna take me a bit to save but my laptop should do for a few weeks. The keyboard and touchpad no longer work but I’ve plugged in a cheap mouse and keyboard. A small patch of the screen is all rainbow and weird but it isn’t too big right now. And it keeps randomly shutting down so I’ll just have to constantly save my work

    Laptops are investments, and I'd pay that for one! Hell, I paid $1,200 American for a PC!!!

    It’s mostly for uni stuff tbh. Doesn’t need to be amazing in terms of memory or storage, and I don’t play PC games. Just browsing, Microsoft office, play videos, and some photo editing. The Dell I was looking at is like $1000 AUD (so like 700 American) which is more than I’ve ever spent on a laptop but is also cheaper than others recommended by student sites. And it’s got awesome customer reviews

    Honestly depends upon the RAM, memory, and/or FPS you need. If you're gaming on it, definitely a higher end one like Alien Ware or Dell. Dell does make some really high quality but inexpensive laptops if you're not needing a ton of power!

    My laptops well and truly fucked and I need to buy a new one ASAP. I’m just realllllly bad at choosing/buying things like this. I know generally what I need but no idea how cheap or expensive to go, if going more expensive is gonna mean better quality or not any recommendations for a student laptop that isn’t Lenovo or a Mac?

    Thank you for the information and god I always love your thoughts on stuff like this!!!! Yeah, I noticed more in the earlier albums like Insomniac (been binging lately!) that he has a tiny lisp/congestion. I don't know if dental surgery would help with stuff like that either, but I did notice around those times a different sound from him. I might be nuts though! Thank you @Montclare

    The two biggest ones were around 2002 (pre Pop Disaster Tour) and the end of 2016. Not sure how much of an impact it had on his singing though. His biggest lisp was in Fell for You. I'd say the change between Warning and AI was him sounding less congested. I doubt dental surgery would have anything to do with that though.

    While I was rolling pizza dough for 4 hours today and listening to our boys, I thought about Billie's teeth changing and how it changed the sound of his singing between the albums. I noticed a definite difference between Warning and American Idiot. Before AI, Billie kinda had a bit of a lisp. Does anyone know when he had dental operations and when? I'm curious as to the timeline of these and how they affected his music!

    My best friend is threatening to make a "Green Day Jar" and every time I mention anything Billie or GD related I would have to put $1 in the jar hopefully it doesn't come to that because my whole paycheck would be getting slam dunked

    @maryjanewhatsername I do something pretty similar! I subtly slip Green Day references into conversations so I can keep talking about them without whoever I’m talking to being aware of it.

    When you can't mention Green Day around your friends anymore from obsessing too much so you have to talk about them in code.

    Random Green Day News

    Green Day get a mention in this Pop Culture 25 Years Later article (it talks about Dookie): https://25yearslatersite.com/2019/02/22/popculture25yl-february-1994-green-day-pavement-drop-classics-michael-jordan-plays-baseball-gwen-stacy-takes-a-dive-again/ This is what it says: Green Day – Dookie by Bryan O’Donnell 1994 was a monumental year for music. I plan on contributing to many of the PopCulture25YL columns to talk about the music from 25 years ago. I’m biased, probably, because 1994 hit directly in the time I was growing up and becoming obsessed with music, but I think the year was the best year of new music ever. Green Day’s Dookie, the band’s third album, was released on February 1, 1994. At that time, I was in 6th grade, religiously listening to Metallica and Nirvana. I remember liking Dookie’s first single, “Longview,” well enough, but it wasn’t until later that year and into 1995 that I remember the album exploding. Dookie was perhaps the most iconic album of my middle school years. Everyone had the Dookie T-shirt. I remember trying to out-cool everyone by buying a Kerplunk (the band’s second album) T-shirt, but it probably only hurt my popularity. It seemed like a new song from the album would be released as a single every week. In addition to “Longview,” this album features songs you still hear on the radio on a regular basis (yes I still listen to the radio): “Basket Case,” “When I Come Around,” “Welcome to Paradise,” and “She.” It’s hard to believe all of those songs were on the same album. Sitting down to write this piece and listening to Dookie after a long time away from it, I felt a wave of nostalgia kick in right from the get-go. The album starts with “Burnout,” a very angsty song that definitely spoke to me in my uncomfortable early-teen years: “I’m not growing up, I’m just burning out.” Two more non-hits follow — “Having a Blast” and “Chump” — and they are also excellent. Diving back in to some of these lesser-known songs was truly a pleasure. With a lot of the music from this time centering around grunge, Green Day’s Dookie introduced people who listened to mainstream music to punk rock. It was an important album then, and it’s still an important (and very good) album today. As someone who later got heavily into punk rock for a period of my life (constantly listening to the Clash, NOFX, Bad Religion, and many others), I’m not sure if I ever would have made that musical leap if it weren’t for Green Day releasing Dookie when they did.
