I could see that guy being like the Warning era Billie a bit I wouldn’t say he’s fully a fat Billie lookalike but can see why someone may say that

Very vaguely - Mr Buttruff has a similar face shape, not much of a chin, an early 2000s Billie haircut, similar shape of eyebrows and look at his teeth, they are on point.

The way you described this about killed me 😂

I have a question for everyone. The other day, hubby and I were flipping around the TV and we came across the Professional Bowlers Tour. There is a bowler named Jacob Buttruff (not sure why he hasn't changed his name) and hubby insisted that he looks like a fat Billie Joe. My response was no fucking way, he looks nothing like him. So, hubby said to post the picture to see what everyone thinks. So here is the question, does anyone think this guy looks like Billie. I still say no fucking way.

I'd say its the chin but I find myself wishing that BJ's name was Billie Joe Buttruff.

If you just look at the hair, eyebrows and eyes there's a slight similarity, any further down not so much. It's mostly just the hairstyle that would make someone think of that era Billie I think.

Even though, taken separately, some face elements could be more or less comparable, their faces as a whole are different, this guy's traits don't remind me of Billie's at all

I'll never forget hearing Billie sing "Still Breathing". It was so clear and I remember thinking that no one in Europe had heard that live yet. I felt so lucky. It was incredible. They kept stopping and starting "Forever Now" too

OMG it must've been so great!! :wub:

So, not sure if anyone knew, but I'm a teacher. At the back of my classroom I have a load of quotes and you guessed it, many are green day lyrics. 

I want to expand this quote wall as some furniture has moved so I have more space. The ones I've already got are:

Carpe diem - seize the day

What good is love and peace in earth if it's exclusive 

I don't have much but what I have is more than enough 

What part of history we've learned when it's repeated 

What would you wish if you saw a shooting star 

Talk is cheap and lies are expensive 

Do you want to live out loud

 

I am after more ideas along a similar, kinda.. motivational, gently question life, stand up for what you believe in, be a good human.. way

 

There are other motivational quotes mixed in, the students love that I have Green Day lyrics up and have asked me to get more... Not because they are fans (I'm trying!) but because they love that I'm a fan! 

They are aged 11 to 19, and it needs to be suitable for a classroom. 

Anything you can come up with would be appreciated 

Thanks 😊😊😊😊

This is cool! I’m sure people here can come up with a bunch. One that I’ve always loved is the line from Misery: “It’s not what you make it’s what you leave.”

If it’s because they’re looking ahead and working on the next album I’m totally okay with that.

Yeah, but I don't think a special release would change anything the plans for a new album, we could have both

Maybe they’re leaving that kind of recognition for others to do, like the tribute concert Gilman is doing. They might prefer to be honored by their peers than doing it themselves, especially if they want to focus on new music.  They’re often eager to prove they’re not done.  But a simple rerelease of the album is something Warners can do and wouldn’t take a huge time commitment from the band so I suppose that’s still possible.

Nah, I sing that silently in my head for some classes though 😂😂

:lol:

In all seriousness, these are the first ones that pop into my head.  Some aren't necessarily ones you'd see on a motivational poster, but would resonate with a stressed out teen (or anyone stressed out really)-

I'm still breathing on my own

Do you ever build up all the small things in your mind to make one problem that adds up to nothing

When you lost all hope and excuses...you've got to hold on to yourself (not sure if you'd have room for the whole chorus)

A conscientious objector to the war that's in my mind

Marching out of time to my own beat now the only way I know
