    Since this time last year, so many fans have lost artists they love, often much too soon. I know it’s not the same as losing someone you know personally, but when it comes to the musicians who have influenced us and stuck by us in our darkest times, I can’t imagine how painful it must be to lose them. Such losses have reminded me to be present and grateful for the fact that my favorite band exists on this earth the same time as me. Still breathing. Still alive. This dude has influenced me so deeply and adds so much to my life. Whether he’s writing how I feel in song or posting a goofy dad joke on social media, Billie has given me so much happiness. He makes me proud to be a Green Day fan. Happy Birthday, old man. Thank you for being my favorite human. I kinda adore you.

    So cool! Listen with headphones. It sounds like you’re in the room with them. They soundcheck and rehearse loads of songs including 99 Revolutions, Private Ale, Stuart and the Ave, and a couple of Op Ivy/Rancid with Tim Armstrong. Some funny chat too. https://m.soundcloud.com/nameloc01/green-day-cleveland-oh-41615-hob-soundcheck

    Is this thread-worthy? Sorry if it's not, but it bloody well should be! I know it's not technically his birthday yet because it isn't past midnight in California, but it is past midnight here in the UK and people are already posting about his bday on Instagram so fuck it. Plus, I've been looking forward to this day for 3 weeks now, I was so damn excited for it (even though it doesn't involve me in any way lol). So yeah, this thread is for celebrating the most amazing frontman of the most wonderful band (and my personal favourite human) gracing this planet for 46 years. 46 years of making people smile/laugh, writing catchy relatable songs, playing electrifying gigs, putting up with so much shit, being an excellent role model, sticking up for the minority, saving lives, and just being an all-round legend. I'm so proud of him and everything he's achieved in those 46 years. Happy Birthday, Billie!

    I love this picture ever since he did the photoshoot for RS magazine after his rehab. He looks so vulnerable. Anyway, since it's Billie's birthday today, lets have a more serious moment. Billie Joe is my role model in so many ways. He stands up for what he believes in. He takes care of everyone he loves. He knows how to put a smile on everybody faces. He gives back a lot to his community. Billie is a beautiful human being. He went through a lot during his life, having his ups and downs. In the end, he never gave up. Billie inspired me to become a better person. I have my ups and downs too and I wanted to give up so many times. But when I look at him, I feel like I must continue to hold on. If somebody like him can succeed in life with ADHD, I can too with my ADD. I am not good at playing music, but I have other artistic skills. Billie worked very hard to develop his musical talent and create his career. I know I will do the same with my own artistic talents. When I'm affraid to fail, I think about Billie and how hard he worked to succeed. I felt like a failure for so many years. The perception of myself changed thanks to him. When I was a teen, I was kind of affraid of him. Billie represented the type of guy I wanted to hate. But, over the years, the more I discovered him as a person, the more I understood him. I realized I was totally wrong about him. Never judge a book by its cover! Over the years, so many things changed in my life, for the better and the worst. Billie was always closed by in my heart, but I never understand it until I saw him live for the 1st time in 2010. Seeing him how passionate he was and how hard he was trying to make sure nobody felt left out at the concert, he simply blew me away that night. The guy has the abilty to change the world. He can touch everybody's heart and soul. It is a weird thing to say, but the first image I've ever seen of Billie on tv was his mugshot when he got arrested for drunk driving. If I had stop looking at him back then after what he had done wrong, I wouldn't be able to say today, on his 46th birthday, that I'm grateful that he is in my life. I don't know him personally, but he's like a friend to me. He inspired me everyday. Whenever I feel depressive, sad, mad... his presence (even if it's just on a paper, a magazine, the cds) cheer me up. When I want to figure out a situation, I try to relate to him. When I need to see a smile, he's the one I go to look at. If I was ever able to meet him someday, the most important thing for me to tell him is «Thank you». So, yeah, sorry for the long post, but the birthday boy deserved to be celebrated. 46 years old and he is still looking young, rocking the world and touching so many hearts! I'm grateful he is in my life. I hope it will be the case for many more years to come. Billie is a beautiful human being. He deserved to have the best birthday ever. (Can I say that this post was about fangirling on Billie's personality? In any case, Billie Joe is hawt!)

    Dear God if Billie Joe Armstrong doesn't live forever, the universe and I are going to have a serious problem. Fortunately, no matter what, BJ will live on through all the lives he's touched, saved, and improved. Thank you BJA so much for still writing and singing and saying your piece. The world is 1,000,000,000,000,000 times better for it. You've changed my life in the best way. Rock on.

    I think a lot of people refer to them as "That band that made that American Idiot song" or "21 Guns" or "I Walk Alone" or "That September song" But yeah, I think most people would know at least 1 or 2 GD songs even if they don't know the name of the band

    I'm actually kinda glad that his birthday is so close to Valentine's Day - it gives me an excuse to be extra fangirly twice in one week. I just feel so honoured and blessed to exist in the same lifetime as him. I'm so grateful to him because he has made me a better person and he truly makes life worth living. He's something special and I'll never ever take him for granted. I hope he lives a long, happy, healthy life.

    Happy birthday Billie, thank you for writing the soundtrack to my life, thank you for making me cry and laugh, thank you for giving me hope in my darkest times (#stillbreathing) and for all the precious memories. You have no idea what it means to me. You've never been more adorable and wonderful than you are now. All the best, dear! (Oh and just switch "Burnsie" with "Billie" in this song)

    Since it's Valentine's Day, I just wanna say I love GDC and everyone on it! To whoever is reading this, we probably don't know each other very well, but I love you.

    ^^^God, he's just absolutely stunning. I don't even understand how it's possible to be so perfect. He's incredible. Here's another one of him looking so radiant: Gorgeous curls, adorable chubby cheeks, shiny chompers, sweaty neck and forearm, lovely ink, beautiful hands and, to top it all off, that brilliant gleam in his eyes. He is exquisite. There's no better feeling in this world than seeing that man happy. True beauty at it's finest.

    In these difficult and cynical times it’s so lovely to see all these birthday wishes to someone who we all love and hold in such high regard, very heartwarming. I hope it gives him some idea of how much he’s loved.

    Nightlife is one of my favorite songs from the Trilogy. I love when they step outside their comfort zone. I think it is a really fun song. I think they should do it in concert and it is the song that they bring people on stage for. The person on stage does the Lady Cobra part with Billie. I'm ready, I've been practicing for years.

    I've just realised that I've been so busy and so caught up in the Valentine's Day mood that I've barely even looked at my favourite little angel all day. So before I go to bed, here's a few pics of my little sunshine and his breathtakingly radiant smile. God, he's so exceedingly beautiful. I'm absolutely bursting with love and admiration and respect and gratitude for him. He'll always be my little sunshine. Same. But who needs a man when you have this wonderfully exquisite human being in your heart and mind at all times? I certainly don't.

    We haven't had much of my wonderful chubby Billie in this thread for a while, and it is Valentine's Day, so... So beautiful. How can you not love that chubby little face? So cute. And his arm.

    I wanted to edit the first sentence so that it would say "Billie Joe Armstrong has been alive for 46 slutty, slutty years" and share a link in the birthday thread. Would've edited it back the next day. I got stuck writing an essay and needed to do something different for a moment Ugh not funny

    Can I just say that this thread has been absolutely on fire recently? You guys are the best fangirls around and I absolutely love reading all of the wonderful things you have to say about our boys. To stay on topic, one of the things about Billie that I really look up to is his ability to get people to listen without having to shout other people down or be an attention seeking whore. There's so much ignorance in the world atm that it's difficult to get people to listen. In Billie's case, he can be pretty quiet and withdrawn, but as soon as he opens his mouth, people are hanging on every word. I mean, look at him, he has an entire forum of us analyzing every lyric he writes and interpreting it in every single way it could possibly be interpreted. Seriously, it's a talent and I really admire that about him because I'm a quiet person like Billie, and I can't think of a single person outside of GDC that regularly listens to what I have to say. Billie is my main source of hope that things will change in the near future. It also works the opposite way too, I'm more likely to listen to what other people have to say thanks to Billie. I'm not as stubborn as I used to be and I'm a lot more willing to try and understand other people's point of view, even if I don't necessarily agree with it. Billie has taught me so much in the past two years of me being a fan. I've learned more from him than I've learned from my entire family combined. I'm a much better person for it, and I know that a lot of you feel the same way. If Billie has the ability to change so many people's lives, I truly believe he has the ability to change the world. He always says he wants to change the world and I believe in him 100 percent. He's an inspiration to all of us.

    Mike's new beard offends me. That is all I want to say. Oh, but his post on gun control meant a lot to me. I have some personal connections and experiences I would not have if there was adequate gun control in the US. Not trying to start something, I can't do the debate. Just saying, based on some personal factors, this hit home.

    My friend from Iran knows that I love Green Day and mostly Billie, but she doesn't know much about the band. Today, I guess it was because I didn't talk much about GD during the week, she asked me «How mister Green Day was doing». (She didn't know how to name Billie.) Anyway, I told her it is his 46th birthday tomorow and she thought I was joking.

    Whenever I speak of my passion of Green Day to people who don't know who they are (and that happens quite often!), I take a great pleasure into showing them pictures of Billie during the RevRad tour, hear them say "nah, you know, I'm not really into new bands..." and then see their reaction when I say this band has been on for 30 years. They're all like : "but this guy looks 30! how can I not be aware of that band ". Even though the reaction turns out to be quite predictable, it's an absolute delight for me every time
