The intensity is incredible.

Omg, yes! I loved it when they played FN live, all of the emotion and everything. Was one of my favs seeing it live and Billie, Mike and Tre up close last year. ☺️

It would be cool if Green Day made a new FBHT song. I wonder if in Billie's live the other day if that was a new Foxies song... 🤔

I feel your pain.  Have you tried the new Alkaline Trio album, Is This Thing Cursed?  

I've been listening to this album, and while my jury is still out, the title track and "Little Help" instantly grabbed me, thanks for reminding me about the Trio!

I'm going to be checking out Blue October's new one as well.  Gotta love those color-named bands!

Hopefully Back in the USA can get to 12 million views by Friday as it would be nice for it to have 12 million views in its 1st year on YouTube. It is currently on 11.1 million.

I watched it over the weekend & was surprised by the 11 million views.

I hope Billie, Mike and Tre are safe and ok with the fires in California right now 😣

I’m mostly just hoping they’re good about wearing high quality masks. Don’t even want to think about what breathing that smoke in would do to their health.

So I don't really know where to post this, but my mom used to work in radio and was scheduling a show at the Phoenix Underground in Seattle and Green Day was playing. It was right before Subpop signed them on to record Dookie. She described Billie as a 'bratty little punk with blue hair' that was full of himself! And the band was just a little too young to be in the club so between sets they had to sit outside in the alleyway. My mom didn't really get to talk to them, just small interactions as she was doing a remote radio setup for the station. And I was just so shocked, like that could never be BJA based upon what she said! But I guess people change and serious, fast-paced fame like that can really get into your head.

Sounds like an accurate description of young Billie to me haha. It's cool that your mum got to meet the little brat

It can't make that much of a difference after all that weed smoke they've inhaled over the years. :P

Breathing in this is more like smoking a hundred joints a day 😟

Haha, at least weed isn’t toxic. God only knows what’s in this smoke with all kinds of buildings/materials burning.

I have no idea. That was the record company my mom said they were dealing with. They might have changed their name or something, or she might be remembering incorrectly. 

Out of ¡UNO!, ¡DOS!, and ¡TRÉ!, what is your favorite album and why? I just have a harder time listening to these three than any of their other albums and I'd love some really positive feedback on why everyone loves them and why they're so good. So far, I think my favorite is ¡TRÉ!

Would subpop have been their management company at the time?

Dude, possibly. That sounds a lot more familiar. She said Subpop was moving Green Day up to Seattle to work around Nirvana and the other grunge bands because they wanted a similar sound.

This story doesn't sound right at all. Green Day has never wanted to sound like Nirvana, and their management company at the time was Cahn Man productions. Sub Pop is a record label but as far as I know Green Day was never going to be on there.

also, did Billie even have blue hair before Dookie came out? I thought his pre-dookie look was when he had dreads

BJ acting like a little shit makes it instantly believable as far as I'm concerned

I agree all of those details sound wrong. Maybe she confused them with a different band or the time frame was way off.
