Green Day remixing trilogy guitars

Recommended Posts

Hey all,

Not sure if this is thread-worthy but I think it's definitely a good topic for discussion. As you may know Billie Joe posted a photo on Instagram the other day of himself in the studio, with the caption:

'Having fun with guitars remixes uno dos tre"

Here's the link:

The post got me really excited, just the idea of hearing some of the trilogy songs with possibly more distortion and less production...similar to what Dookiefied does. Billie Joe himself said in the RS article that he loves 'shitty sounding recordings' and that in some ways he wishes they'd recorded the last records 100% live." This makes me question whether he and potentially the rest of the band were/are unhappy with how the songs ended up sounding.

Don't get me wrong I know they wouldn't have released them unless they thought they were perfect, but maybe their opinions have changed since the release?

Either way I'm keen to see if we ever get to hear any of this. What do you guys think? Mods, feel free to close this if it's not thread-worthy.

Probably their long awaited collaboration with Skrillex.

I'm dying to hear thick Marshall tones on these tracks, AI style.

But he meant a remix or a different version of the songs? :huh:

Remixes of Kill The DJ and Wow! That's Loud would be nice to hear.

I know about this, but these guitars are on top of the clean ones which makes it sounds weird.

Right now this thread is just speculation and voicing preferences, so I really hope we get some good stuff from the studios soon!

My #1 pick for a low-fi remix is Carpe Diem

Hi Cdog, allow me to escort you out.

Oh, goodness, I can C the resemblance :lol:

Also note that in Cuatro when discussing the new sound, he mentions that it's 'fucking with' his head. Obviously the ways he says it suggests in a good way, and he's excited about the new sound, but it could also be interpreted as him being unsure about it, perhaps?

I'm interested..though I like the guitar mixes in the trilogy as it is...it's pretty minimal, but at the same time it kinda "punches you in the face". Musically. I don't know if anyone knows what I'm talking about but that's how I feel.

I doubt we'll ever hear what he's doing. He's probably just fucking around in the studio because he's bored.

I don't think he would pay money to rent the studio just to "fuck around"

Maybe he personally hands the money over to himself to rent his own studio :P

Well we know Billie Joe has his own studio set up at home, obviously not as technically equipped as Jingletown but I think if he really was just fucking around he'd do it at home. It seems more to me like he's actually experimenting with the guitars on some of the tracks somehow.

Jingletown is Green Day's studio. They renamed it to "Jingletown" after they bought it. The guys themselves wouldn't have to pay to use it but other projects definitely would have to.

Anyways I'm perfectly fine with the current versions of the Trilogy. The production is a little off in some points but for the most part it's pretty strong. It's likely that he's just going through the masters and messing with other guitar tracks that were recorded but buried in the mixing/mastering.
