    I hope it deserves a thread of its own.

    I wish there were clips of them playing it at the RevRad shows at the end of the video, but I love it anyway! And it's cool that 2000LYA finally got its own video after 25 years

    I'm gonna say this cause I finally saw them live and I don't give a fuck anything else... I almost had a fucking orgasm when he had that crown of thorns. And yes, I saw them aaahhh I saw them, they were in front of me, they're so fucking beautiful!! Billie looks so fucking gorgeous, his eyes and that fucking smile, I'm so in love, I still can't believe all of that was real. Is because he finally saw me, we finally saw each other lol. There's a quote from Frida Kahlo that it pretty much sums up this: "Pero el color de tu piel, de tus ojos y tu pelo cambia con el viento de México". (It's something like this: "But the color of your skin, your eyes and your hair changes with the wind of México"). Gaaahhh I'm fangirling so hard, I can't deal with this.

    Not my first visit to this thread, I’ve been lurking in the back pews for some time now. However, in light of God’s Favourite Band sharing their heavenly hits today I feel moved to confess ... I love this whole forum but I bloody love you lot and this thread.

    Oh my god he's so annoying . And of course he has to be all nonchalant and act like he's not sure whether the album's out when most likely he knows very well that it is and has been asked to mention it on Instagram

    YAS. Best video they've done since 21st Century Breakdown. I dig the song too. This video made me really happy. Also, just when I didn't think my man crushes on them could get any bigger...

    ^ Agreed (both that Billie Joe is hawt and that we need a behind the scenes video)! But, can we talk about Mr. Dirnt for a second because... How handsome can he get??

    He is so beautiful and that video was so perfect I actually burst into tears when I watched it. I was like they’re back, my boys are back 💚💚💚 If you combine the best of their first and second eras this is EXACTLY what you should get 😇😇😇 And since this is the fangirls thread after all... Billie acting!! The sunglasses!!! The bathrobe and scruffy hair (I love how the next morning after he starts letting it all go)!!! The little look be gives when he puts the glasses on the camera!!!!! The band playing at the end!!! His hair!!! OMG his hair!!! And the smirk at the end is all “we’re back baby so better watch the fuck out nazis!” 😂😂😂🤘🤘🤘 I’m in love I’m in love I’m in love I’m in love with God’s favorite band and this video is every reason why.

    Feel like I say this a lot but where to even begin I AM DECEASED etc I guess we know now why he cut his hair/started wearing it like that

    When they change into suits at the end of the video Billie looks so freaking hot with the slightly messy hair.

    I know some people will probably be offended by Billie Joe wearing a crown of thorns in his new Instagram post, but I'm really loving it (I'm not religious at all). Holychrist, he looks good in it!

    In the new video, both the Dad Billie and the rock star Billie give me feelings. But man, that white shirt/loose black tie look at the end is where it's at. With the perfectly messy hair.

    ^ When I saw the video for the 1st time I also thought that Billie had had his hair cut while filming the video. But I guess it's longer at the part where he picks the paper up to give him a 'just got out of bed look' first thing in the morning. On a completely different note, I've loved using this thread during the tour and I hope everyone has enjoyed using this thread as much as I have

    Is it cheating if I periodically throughout the day put the video on and turn the sound off on my computer just to increase plays? I do this after listening like 2-3 times first of course but they deserve a few extra, haha. This video makes me feel all warm and fuzzy even though it's about a serious topic. It just feels reassuring like Green Day are here to save the day and make us all feel good again and like it's gonna be okay. Even if that's not how it actually works, I'm grateful for their efforts to be even a small part of the resistance against the current administration. It's like if your whole family is bat shit crazy but you've got that one uncle who gets it and has your back. I'm gettin' all emotional....

    P.O. Box 81623 San Diego, CA 92138 Green Day Interview An Interview With Billy from Green Day by Dave Quinn If you've yet to experience the music of Green Day you're missing out. For some, their ultra-poppy love/hate songs may be hard to take, and according to rule #567348.32 of the punk rawk handbook, they are in direct violation of the "can't let my friends see me with this uncool shit" code. However, their sound is irresistible and crucial to anyone who has ever wanted what they couldn't have. The real kick in the ass is how young these guys are combined with their dead on insight into relationship crap. DQ: You're playing in San Diego quite a bit lately, do you like it here? I totally love San Diego... (holds arm up and begins to point to different parts of it) Like San Francisco (wrist), the Bay Area (forearm), part like that, then Northern California (elbow) and here in the armpit, that's where L.A. is, and if you go down to the nipple that's where San Diego is. San Diego's way cool. The whole attitude is you should be totally separated from Los Angeles... (it) reminds me of Berkeley, but bigger with a lot more beaches. It's cool. (He's just saying that because I'm bigger than he is.) DQ: Have you ever hung around here long enough to check out the scenery? We walked around today, checked out some cafes, hung out at the beach (P.B.) on the boardwalk, looked at the shops. Lots of tourist trap bullshit going on, but there were cool Mexican food places... I love Mexican food. DQ: Word on the street is that you've been signed to Virgin? I've heard we've been signed to Geffen. We're definitely going to a major label, we have no idea yet... Dyno she-babes enter at this point. Dyno she-babe: What kind of food do they have in here? There's chips, some turkey breasts and cheese... iced tea. Eat up! What was the question again? DQ: Major labels. There's five of them that are interested, we've gotta hold out as long as we can so we know we're sure. I've heard of so many bands getting totally destroyed by major labels. That's why we never really did it from the start; we were seventeen, sixteen years old when we put out our first 7-inch. And I wouldn't want to be labeled as a "young alternative rock band" or something on MTV. We'd be in and out within six months, so we did everything on an independent label. Now we're going to do bigger things, you know, movin' up. DQ: Have you worn out your welcome with Lookout? Lookout is totally cool, we talked to them about it and they're hip on it. They knew it was coming for a while. We're doing one more EP on Lookout... It's a decision that took a year for us to make... We're not going to do anything cheesy, like put Lookout's logo on a major label, we'll make a clean break. DQ: How's the new crap different from the old crap? Well, it's still the same kind of style, but the lyrics have changed a lot. There's a lot less about love and stuff like that, and more about phobias and stuff. DQ: What do you hate? My fears. I hate being insecure. I hate being neurotic. I hate neurotic people. It's a lot of talkin' shit... there's also a friend of ours who was killed in a car accident about a year ago, so Mike wrote a song called "Jar" about him. Well, not really about him, (it's) about growing up. (Our new record) is like both records combined. We want to put out the ultimate Green Day sound. That's what we're trying to accomplish with the next record. DQ: Are you going to lose a lot of your "old school" fans when you sign? Yeah, definitely. There's going to be a few people who will be bummed out. I have nothing bad to say about punk rock or the underground. I think it's like the greatest scene in the world, but opportunity knocks. People ask "why are you doing this, because you have a family or anything?" Basically, it's because I fucking want to do it and so do the other members. The music hasn't changed. We're not changing ourselves to suit some big corporate record label. The music will be there if you want to listen to it. If you feel that you're contributing to a major corporation I got nothing to say because one time I said that, and now I've completely contradicted myself. There's not much to say about it. Some guy came up to me in New Jersey saying, "I heard you're signing for millions of dollars to so-and-so's label" and all this shit and I'm like, "...yeah, that's what we're gonna do." I didn't really have anything to say to him, and he's like, "Well, don't you know you're supporting a multi-million dollar corporation..." and I said "yeah.. I'm not doing it for them, I'm doing it for myself." DQ: What changes with signing? One thing changes when you get a bigger name. Stress. That's definite. It's funny because there's some people who will be totally into Green Day, and there will still be one person who will say "Oh, I think they fuckin' suck. I hate that pop shit." Whatever. And for some reason you'll totally ignore the people who think that you're good. You'll go to the people who think you're bad and say, "Well, what's up?" (laughs) People are going to say stuff to you that's pretty shitty, but you gotta just throw it behind you and not look at it. Not take it personal. DQ: A lot of people judge bands on their "PC"-ness, but you're really more personal as you grow older. Do you find yourself getting more political? There's going to be songs on the next record about slaving. My mom has been working at minimum wage jobs as a waitress for the past four years, and there's definite problems in that. We're young and we don't know much about politics, but now we're growing, getting out of high school and figuring out that things aren't given to you on a platter--living free at your parent's house, just going to school, now you gotta go out and have a job and all that bullshit. That comes along with what you're programmed to do in high school. I don't want to fuckin' live like that... I don't want a job, ever. DQ: Make up our own question. Wow. That's difficult... If I was a girl, who would I be?... Kathleen from Bikini Kill. DQ: From Bikini Kill???!!! (His voice gets louder) I've never really listened to them before, but then I heard a record when I was in Florida... she's got the radest voice, man. So fuckin' hard and shit. She's dope, man. She knows what's up. For some reason, I don't know... Kathleen from Bikini Kill. DQ: Who did you lust after but never get? Um... (long pause) ...that's a really revealing question. DQ: Reveal! Reveal yourself! This zine won't go past San Diego--it doesn't matter. (laughs)... Wow, there was a girl when I was sixteen--my best friend's sister. Her name is Jennifer. She's the one that got away. She's a couple of years older than I am. You know, a sixteen-year-old wanting to be in love with some girl. It wasn't quite there as far as she was concerned, but I was there. I was down. I knew what was up, but she wasn't willing to take that risk so... (laughs) DQ: What song is about her? The entire first seven inch.

    I would say the one thing we can be sure of is that we can never be sure of what they will do next. We had the Network and the Tubbies when we didn't expect them, we weren't even sure BITUSA was a new song and not "just" a cover and we got 100% Green Day and a kick ass video we didn't even know was in the works! I - like Billie Joe - love it when GD is goofy, I think they are one of the few bands who are able to pull off being topical/satirical/witty/rocking at once. I think it will be at least 2019 before we have new music but who knows. I don't mind them being political, I would use topical or even observational rather than political but they do need to watch, that can both be dating which I know they want to avoid, and tiresome.

    I've finally got hold of the CD. Gosh, I just love physically walking to the shop and then picking up a new CD, going home and listening to it. It's what I've done with every Green Day record so far. I know it's terribly out of fashion, but it's a personal preference. Annoyingly, the staff at my store don't really know anything about genres or they're just taking the piss haha:

    Messy responses to various fangirls matters on the last few pages: 1) In the Back In The USA video, Billie is freakin' hawt in the splitting coffee look. Those hair and sunglasses, oh my . But the look that killed me the most is the one at the end. Everything about him is just too handsome to handle. And a bit of fluff does help to make the hair look really good. That short - not so short anymore - hair has now well grown on me thanks to that. 2) Also, the crown of thorns the pic where Billie leans in front of the mic (shared by Billie on his Instagram) is my new computer background at work. I confess it's rather purposely, I work for quite religious people, now they've never seen that religious symbol with so much sexiness at the same time. (I'm refraining from putting a bunch of love emoticons here!) 3) About Mike during gigs, as I was once on his side, he really is very cheerful, along with being badass to watch playing (I didn't fall in love with him though! ). As I was first row, more than once he came close to where I was, smiling at us and doing funny faces, and he gave a big thumb up to the flag I was holding with my friend, several songs before Billie asked for it. I even wondered if maybe it was thanks to Mike? Anyways, when I couldn't see Billie very well, being in front of Mike made the waiting so much better. And when Billie appeared in my sight just next to Mike, it was the best thing ever to look at them both together at once, in real. It fills me with great joy to drift back to these memories (or what's left of them, which is still more than enough ). * * * As I haven't been around much and contributed to this thread lately, here's a picture of Billie I'm fangirling really hard over (I found it on a Facebook link @pacejunkie punk shared above): The fluffy, shining hair, with the bit of white on the side (really, he could not dye his hair entirely!), the chin, the mouth... his posture, the way he looks above... That man is life

    I saw them at a club show in Boston at the begining of the tour. I only managed to snag one ticket so I went to the concert alone. Two girls came up to me on the floor and asked if i was with anyone, i said no, so they said oh well youre with us now. They let me tag along with them for the rest of the night. Green day fam is the best fam.

    Glad I'm not alone in watching it (and listening on the spotify) a stupid amount of times I have to stop myself once in a while wondering if I'm just biased to the moon and back but it really is a fucking great video. It's such a perfect mixture of visually good looking, funny and with a message but there are so many funny little details. Like the random person in the background half assed waving along with Tré (seriously what the fuck), the dog shit, and the ominous toppled tricycle on Mike's lawn, and I'm sure this is music video editing 101 but I especially love the way Billie's "hello" syncs with the first line of the song, Tré's combover and exaggerated "acting" faces, the striped AND mismatched socks and the FAKE NEWS on the second morning, I see the flag pins as showing they're not being unpatriotic like a lot of people accuse them of, and of course the cheeky go away at the end. It's just really well executed and so them. Not to mention it does what a music video is supposed to: present and carry the song. I already loved it after two hours of intense spotifying but the video exceeded any expectations I might've had and magnified it tenfold. It seems to be getting them some decent promo as well.

    Finally Nightlife's time to shine I really like Nightlife, GD with rap is my dream come true and I think Lady Cobra's sultry vocals and Billie's drawling chorus go well together. The new Ordinary World? Hmm, it comes off sounding quite lifeless and flat, and country isn't a sound I love.

    I just read a review of God's Favorite Band on a German music site (laut.de) that is usually very critical when it comes to GD (they gave the trilogy a 2/5, as well as Awesome as Fuck). Their review is actually very positive. They give the album a 4/5 and praise the "inimitable interaction between the two rhytm-gurus Mike Dirnt and Tré Cool", BJs voice, that is "above average" for a punk rock band and "the never-ending" series of "earworm-harmonies". They also claim that BITUSA is the "perfect slap in the face" for those who think that the band should retire. It's always nice to hear something positive about the band, especially 'cause some "music experts" like to criticize everything they do. If anyone wants to read it, here's the link: http://www.laut.de/Green-Day/Alben/Gods-Favorite-Band-108109

    I love Back in the USA. It's nothing super new or remarkable, but it feels like some good, cozy Green Day music with great lyrics. It's the type of song that makes me feel like I'm home.
