Whatever they may do, I hope for a Pop Disaster part 2 with Blink 182 again and whoever else.

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.
 

Holy shit that drives me crazy. He was in outpatient rehab for a month. He spent it at HOME. I absolutely feel that whole time period will have inspired some great writing or ideas but it irks me when people say that like he was gone for a year or something. However I totally admire and support Billie getting sober and all, it ain't easy especially being a rock star and having lived his whole adult life that way. More than anything that very concept should inspire a shit ton of good writing cause that must be incredibly hard.

I really want them to make a live DVD or CD. They did it for the last two tours, so why not now?

Also I would love a new rock opera album. But I have no idea what to expect from them, I don't think they will be doing anything special.

Maybe a club show or something at most

Please no. They did it exceptionally well with AI, then did it exceptionally shittily with 21CB. I think they've about done the concept to death, and if they drop another 21CB, I just might burn whatever Green Day stuff I have left.

I think that by next year we will hear mumblings of how Green Day is in the studio and will start seeing some instagram videos of them in the studio. I see the album being a bit more of the traditional Green Day (AI) sound but I don't think it will be as formal as say 21CB. I think with Billie having some serious themes and topics to write about the the songs will have more meaningful content in lyrics than the Trilogy.

I hope they take it easy for a while. Won't be good for GDA/GDC but all the pressure GD have put themselves under in the past has been part of their drive to be successful and constantly up there with the biggest bands of the age. It's admirable that they put so much effort into their work but it can't last if they want to.

Take a year or two out, write some good music, and hopefully Billie learns that he does not have to publish every single song he's ever written. 21stCB and the Trilogy had way too much filler. American Idiot and Dookie were both shortish albums, containing only the songs that it needed.

I would love to hear them evolve their sound too, not because I don't like it currently, just because I'm sick of people judging me for proudly listening to Green Day.

I hoping for a new album in not so long, maybe next year sometime? :) After the trilogy I'm not sure what kind of album they'll make. Honestly, I just want them to tour again.

Not sure how AI can be classed as Green Day's traditional sound when it's very much a one off. Dookie/Nimrod is probably closer to a "traditional" Green Day sound.

I would expect to see an album next year or the year after. So long as it's better than the trilogy, I'll probably be happy.

I'd like to say "tour", but it's probably impossible before new album release. So... I think we shouldn't expect anything this year, although anniversary of Dookie and American Idiot is great opportunity to make something special like tour, live DVD etc. I hope 2015 will be better :)

I think whatever album they release next it will be the last big thing for Green Day. And if it's bad than the trilogy was the last big thing. Do you guys really believe that they can have such a massive success like they did with dookie or AI  again? They are not getting younger, you know. And teenagers today are literally listening to shit. So unless Green Day release a dubstep-rap-edm-core something  they are not getting on mainstream tv/radio/etc. And I think nobody wants that. I don't think they'll retire or fall apart though. They'll still be writing and releasing stuff. Like Rolling Stones. That old fuckers still make albums. But who listens to them?

Billie Joe is going into norwegian black metal, so he's probably gonna release an album with Lordi, Gorgoroth or someone.

Or, he's gonna continue playing in front of Walmart's for beef or raw ham.

 

Tre is meanwhile going to make an rock-country opera about his lost nut.

 

And Mike? We don't know. Probably gonna play with Emily's Army and saying fuck my life all over and over again.

U2, Metallica and Bruce Springsteen have all been around forever and are still pretty relevant. It's not impossible to have a long and successful career, they don't have to fade away into memory.

I'm worried we're in for a long hiatus. I think they'll make the occasional one-off appearance (praying for the HoF induction so I can try to go, since it'll be close to home), but in terms of a major tour and an album, I think it'll be at least two years. I have no reason to say that other than my own cynicism (and thoughts about how they may want to regroup post-Trilogy and post-rehab), though :lol:

Kind of feel like the band is tapped. Maybe a new bathroom related side project. Names could be The Jazz Toilet or The Telephone pole.

I wouldn't mind a long hiatus. Gives the guys time to take it easy, pursue other projects, family life etc. I'm sure they'll still play side projects and keep themselves occupied but I feel they don't need to do any mammoth GD stuff for a couple of years. Let them release another thing like Shenanigans or Demolicious and keep the fans ticking over for a while.

I don't think they are ever gonna reach the level of creativity and energy they've had in the past. I'm sad to say it, but I just can't imagine there being more superhits now. I want it, I just don't think it'll happen. Not for a while, that is. I think they need to really miss it for the inspiration to hit hard.

Some of the biggest acts in history are only still well renowned because they were short lived. In some cases metaphorically, others literally. The Beatles, Janis Joplin, Nirvana etc. Imagine one of the band members had died after Insomniac? They would have been huge. Still, call it optimistic but I'm hoping for a Springsteen-esque transition into graceful old age.
