Since news is slow and will only get slower as this year presses on, let's speculate!

So what do you think is next for Green Day? Lyrical content, instrument sound, album themes, etc.

I'm very intrigued by which direction the band goes with their next project because I feel like the trilogy was more or less a "let's do something fun" project, rather than a ~normal release.

So what do you all think will happen next?

Another few albums, a lame Superbowl show, and if Billie Joe is cool, a "fuck you" to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame like the Sex Pistols did.

There's no way they're playing the Superbowl. :P And if they did a Broadway musical, they ain't turning down the Hall of Fame.

For their next record, I'll be happy with whatever they decide to do. What I'd like to see though, is this- they build on what they were doing on TRE, and do what Billie said he wanted to do, make it a concept album and record it live in a room together. I think that would be super rad.

During the hiatus, some small/club shows here and there. After the hiatus, next album will probably be a rock opera type (I hope so). :)

No, see, before you do that you're supposed to Google it yourself and make sure the results are actually there. I did it myself and there was nothing helpful, is it the magazine iScottie's talking about?

Did you notice the disagreement Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons had with the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame that ultimately led to KISS not playing their induction? Gene and Paul wanted to induct themselves, Peter Criss, Ace Frehley, Eric Carr, Bruce Kulick, Eric Singer and Tommy Thayer in as KISS. The HOF shot them down and said that only the "classic" lineup (Simmons, Stanley, Criss, Frehley) could be inducted.

 

There was some behind the scenes crap that went down with KISS, too. Supposedly the HOF had asked that the original four play--not Simmons, Stanley, Singer and Thayer--but Criss and Frehley didn't want to be on the same stage together. Basically, were it not for the "classic lineup only" rule, KISS would have found a way to play. Green Day's classic lineup is Armstrong, Dirnt, Cool. John Kiffmeyer definitely won't be inducted, and Jason White almost certainly won't either because he wasn't involved with GD when Dookie was released.

I'd imagine the trilogy was kind of a kick in the ass and their gonna want to prove themselves again cause that's just what they do. I'm hoping for a mature album, lyrically, I feel like things were going very good for the band with two mega albums and them being super popular and whatnot and now I think Billie's like "FUCK". I'm sure all this shit has taken a strain on his family life and I'd bet he's been feeling a share of self loathing and I'm hoping it brings out the beast once more. But I'd imagine it'll be a little while before anything's released but at the same time not too long cause I think they don't wanna wait to redeem themselves. However they cant rush shit. Musically I wouldn't mind the complexity of 21st again but I'd like if they kept it simple and stripped like the trilogy just without that bubble gum sound that it had. Billie's great at being a spokesman for a generation IE Dookie and AI and 21st. I wanna know how these times look to him now as a forty something year old who's lived the life he has. I mean picture what the world looks like to him, it must be bizarre. I don't really need more political stuff, though I do think it's one of his strong spots, but I wanna see (hear) more personal and introspective stuff. Either way I'm just excited to see if they pull it together after this. It's not like they haven't lost popularity before (though by now they are cemented in history and everyone knows who they are) but they've never really made "bad" stuff like the trilogy before so for the first time I feel like they really do have something to prove. Warning was not popular and didn't sell much but I cant see how they weren't proud of it either way. The trilogy on the other hand was pretty terrible and this time they're either gonna step it up or feel they don't have to prove anything anymore cause they've done enough. But I think we all know that wont happen, if for nothing else they like making music for themselves and will want to prove themselves to themselves again. But above all else I'll be waiting on Billie's lyrics cause he is an amazing lyricist, a poet, and that's by far what disappoints me most about the trilogy.

If they didn't include Chad Channing for Nirvana they better not John...

That don't mean shit Dave Grohl was inducted in as Nirvana for an album he had nothing at all to do with...

A new album, maybe a proper UK tour would be nice. Also some kind of Shenanigans Vol 2, with b-sides and stuff from AI-now, all compiled in one nice package.

Drifting further from punk into a general retro pop-rock sound. Sales don't matter any more. They'll always sell out 10k+ arenas now. They'll just make music as and when they feel like it as a band without pressure from the label, which in turn will mean the label stops promoting their music quite so much. They'll become a background fixture in the music scene with their dedicated fan base and no obligation to do anything particularly daring or out there. They don't need another American Idiot or Dookie and I wouldn't want one. It'd be too intense. 

 

There'll be lots of various side-project stuff. Films, cafes, all that jazz. They'll each do their own thing and every 3-5 years pop out some Green Day stuff, do a world tour, then back to the homely things.

Album in mid 2015. 

 

Not sure what style they'll go for, but will be a huge step up lyrically, especially compared to the trilogy.

 

Interested to see what Billie has been writing about, he must have been writing when he went to rehab.

 

They need to take their time and let the music come to them. Need another quality LP from them.
