Billie Joe Armstrong Posts About Charlottesville

Billie Joe Armstrong of Green Day has shared a post regarding the events in Charlottesville over the weekend:

Omaha!! what a show! I love the heartland. nothing makes me feel more inspired than hearing an arena singing together.. so many thoughts today.. my heart feels heavy. I feel like what happened in charlottesville goes beyond the point of anger. it makes me sad and desperate. shocked. I fucking hate racism more than anything. music and social justice have always gone hand and hand with me. we wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for “the time they are a changing” .. some people don’t agree. the spirit of green day has always been about rising above oppression. and sticking up for what you believe in and singing it at the top of your lungs. we grew up fearing nuclear holocaust because of the cold war. those days are feeling way too relevant these days. these issues are our ugly past.. and now it’s coming to haunt us. always resist these doomsday politicians. and in the words of our punk forefathers .. Nazi punks fuck off.

Green Day Have a Bunch of Unreleased Stuff

Mike Dirnt of Green Day talked with Music Feeds about all the unreleased material the band has stored away:

We have so much stuff, and some of it has morphed into other songs, you know, a song that took 10, 20 years to evolve but started off as a jam or started off as us singing a different lyric to it or whatever. I mean, there’s little opuses in other songs and things like that we’ve done that people have never heard.

And:

I don’t know when they’ll see the light of day, but me and Billie always said ‘at some point everything comes out in the wash.’ So, you know, at some point it’ll all come out. We’re not in any hurry to do that because this band has never really been in the business of looking backwards. Maybe some day when we’re older, then we’ll look back.
