As for most inspiring quotes, Tre saying "Play the song, don't play the instrument," has stayed with me as a musician ever since I first read it. In terms of practical advice that's just brilliant.

Me too ! That quote really helped me when crafting my own songs

"There's nothing wrong with me this is how I'm supposed to be" kinda says it all for me, which is why I got it tattooed on my arm :)

''I'm not gonna say anything inspirational, i'm just gonna fucking swear a lot.''  (not from a song actually but doesn't matter)

Permission to literally shoot me in the face. I knew this, of course due having it already planned out and drawn. It's just my high mind being stupid. I feel so idiotic :(

The 99 Revs Tour. Mike said in the documentary that they didn't want their club shows to be a greatest hits concert. They wanted to play new material. That changed though.

Oh, ok. I got the impression he was talking exclusively about the club shows, though. In which case it's fair enough, since obviously they did play some hits at those but they also did a hell of a lot of new material. The bigger tours are different beasts altogether, it'd never work for them to do all new material in front of 10,000+ people.

Billie Joe said something along the lines of this at my first Green Day show (I'm sure he's probably repeated it)

 

"This is the time to be fucking alive right now. Through every fucking bullshit crisis, and all the crap that you see on the internet, and all the bullshit that you see on television, we've got fucking music goddammit!"

 

Excuse the profanity :P

When I listen to Green Day I either feel unmotivated or want to overthrow the government. There is no in between

"Enjoy every second. Feel every second. Cry every second. Laugh every second. Destroy every second. Give every second."

 

Billie Joe tweeted this in 2011 and I just love it.
