I was about to ask about that one, but I thought I was the only one who didn't know.

There's a scene in Bullet In A Bible, just before the band go onstage, where someone (I really can't remember who, I haven't watched it for years, maybe Mike or Tre) shouts "Why are there no clouds in the sky?" and the response is "Because God wants to see his favourite band again!"

Oh wow I'd like to know this too, the earliest I've seen of it is Tre wearing a t-shirt with it on in like 2002. Dunno if they just decided to put that on a shirt and that's what started it or if there's more of a story to it than that. I'll repost this in the Green Day Q&A thread, probably a better chance of getting an answer there.

The story of "Who the fuck is Tré Cool?" is actually quite interesting.

 

One night, after a show in LA, the three of them were leaving a bar, very very drunk, when they bumped into Tom Cruise. Being very short, even shorter than anyone in Green Day, Tom was very quick to anger, and started an almighty kerfuffle. Not eager to take a pounding from the Hollywood A-lister's bodyguards, Billie Joe quickly shouted "don't start any shit you guys, Tré Cool will fuck you up!". The bodyguards were immensely confused by this, and paused, allowing our three heroes to scarper. Enraged, Tom Cruise could be heard screaming "WHO THE FUCK IS TRÉ COOL?" while admonishing his bodyguards for letting the trio escape. Tré of course found this hilarious, and had the t-shirt that Hermione mentioned made to commemorate that night.

 

So there you have it. Not a word of a lie.

It's not "William Joseph" it's just "Billie Joe".

In my book I wrote about my adventures at Green Day concerts ("My Green Days-the story of a fan & a band"), there are several subtle Green Day references that only Green Day fans would get. I refer to an ex-girlfriend of mine several times as a girl whom I remember the face but I can't recall her name.Some of my non Green Day fan friends who read it asked me if I really couldn't remember her name. In actuality, it's the other way around...I remember her name but I can't recall her face.

Do Da Da was originally called Stuck With Me but there was a mix up somewhere down the line, so what's now known as Stuck With Me gained that title. Do Da Da was then left without a title, which is why it's called Do Da Da despite having "stuck with me" in the lyrics.
