Honestly, $15,000 is a lot for a guitar that has been smashed. Although idk how much gd were selling it for.

It was going for 15k originally so the seller looking like he just wanted to get his money back

It just depends on the person’s idea of value is

if a person is a collector and they have money then that person may not view 15k as a bad buy or too much money like I collect certain items if I’m looking for something and I really want it then money isn’t an object* 

 

to a certain extent I won’t overpay if I know an item isn’t worth past the amount being offered

Duet with Billie Joe, or a guest vocal on a Green Day song?  That would be kind of a cool combination.  

That's it, Shakira should join Green Day!

How many members does your Green Day have at this point? :lol: But for real if they did a song together it would be cool, she's quirky like them and it could totally work.

I tried to find a mashup online, but there's just clips of her dancing while Green Day music plays over it.  But I could see them having a lot of laughs in a video together, and think maybe Green Day could make an interesting Colombian-styled song.   Hmm.

I’m not sure about a Colombian styled song but I think Billie and Shakira could sound pretty good together if she stopped that warbly over-singing thing she does. 😂

I'm stripping back my lineup.  With the addition of Shakira, Billie Joe could exit the band and everyone else could focus on other aspects of making music.  

Shakira - lead vocals and drums

Mike Dirnt on guitar, vocals  

Jason White on bass, vocals

No.

How is this Green Day if Tre and Billie aren't in it?

Not really a news, but Billie Joe's guitar at Rock n Roll Hall of Fame was shown with other artists artefacts to Simple Plan a week ago by the curator.

It's around 0:30.

Replying to @CyrusMMcQueen

When I used to work in a jewelry store on Haight Street back in the 90's, Billie Joe Armstrong (of Green Day), and Steven Tyler (yes - that Steven Tyler) breezed into the store. They didn't buy anything. lol

Replying to @TheSarcasmShow

Billie Joe Armstrong from @GreenDay gave me a shirt at a show in Bethlehem PA in 1992 or 1993 after I got kicked in the head by a dickhead who targeting femmes in the pit. I wore that shirt with pride (& Pride, he was one of the first out bi ppl I knew of) until it fell apart.

Surprised Green Day are on this list to be honest.  Aside from a few songs, I'd consider Green Day to pretty family friendly.

I guess there's quite a lot of bands who don't swear at all. Also I'm assuming they've only included the most popular mainstream artists. I was more surprised by Aerosmith but then I saw that they counted "lust" as swearing. And also I saw "coon" is one of the top words for the top country artist and was like wtf, but then realised it's obviously not the racial slur in the lyrics but the nickname for a raccoon. So maybe this list doesn't give that good a picture. Still I think Green Day would make the list in any case, they get quite a lot of bad words in.

Billie Joe has lost his voice. 

Not much info, he just appears to be a tad bit sick.  The video was of poparatzi harrassing him as he leaves the hospital.  Not a good article or video. 

EDIT:  looks like TMZ reposted a video from 2012 and google is advertising it as new.   Hard to tell because Billie looks exactly the same but yeah, I think we're good.

Are you talking about the video from literally like 7 years ago?
