mikemoto: Wake him up when September ends.
LewDux: I heard they had to pump his stomach
stupiddream: LewDux: I heard they had to pump his stomachNo, that was Rod Stewart.
zato_ichi: Probably just a bad case of nasal congestion.
Icetech3: Horrible band.. fake punk cashing in.. but to each their own:) Just came to post this....[jerseychaser.com image 383x316]
MoronLessOff: Icetech3: Horrible band.. fake punk cashing in.. but to each their own:) Just came to post this....[jerseychaser.com image 383x316]They used to be a great band. Then American Idiot came out.
johnnyboog: Album sales suck. PR stunt to boost sales.
wyldkard: mikemoto: Wake him up when September ends.It all started because he was having trouble trying to sleep.
MurphyMurphy: Hard to believe almost 20 years ago I was riding around after school in the back of a hatchback Escort doing jello shots and smoking grass to Dookie.These guys should have hung it up well over a decade ago. It's far better to burn out than to fade away, and they just keep fading and fading and fading.

rocky_howard: A week ago when Lance Armstrong was dethroned and Neil Armstrong died, I tweeted that if I was the Green Day singer I'd be worried.Well, here it is.
SockMonkeyHolocaust: Check to see if Ben Weasel was sick five years ago because whatever it is, Billie Joe Armstrong probably has it now.
thecpt: Whatever the hell their pointless political message was diminished the quality of music in their fan base's ears.
Mentalpatient87: thecpt: Whatever the hell their pointless political message was diminished the quality of music in their fan base's ears.This entirely. I like a good political message. Someone's gonna make fun of my for it, but I farking love Rage Against the Machine for it. However, American Idiot just came off like a bunch of 15 year olds who had just watched Bowling for Columbine and wanted to be activists..
darch: This band has gotten progressively lamer as the years go by but Dookie is a classic and a GREAT workout album.
PillsHere: It's good to know I'm not the only one who stopped liking them after Dookie. For some reason people seem to get offended when I say I hated American Idiot.
MFAWG: This. I didn't even mind American Idiot because I saw it as a return to punks politically aware roots of the late 70's. But that should have been it.
extroverted_suicide: I might be in the minority here - or even all by myself - but I love Green Day. They are one of the bands that defined my generation. If you can't accept this you're just a jaded chump. However, this should serve as a warning to Billie Joe. He's not getting any younger, and his body probably experienced a 21st century breakdown. With all the touring and the work on a new album, I wouldn't be shocked if he's a total basket case. Still, I'm glad he got out of the hospital before the lobotomy, and will not be spending his last night on earth any time soon. The honor guard can put away their 21 guns, it seems we won't be reading Billie Joe's American eulogy any time soon (hopefully this will quell any mass hysteria). He should probably take a bit of a holiday to recuperate; his wife is waiting and home and she can give him a proper homecoming to really make him feel like a king for a day. As for the short-term disruption to their tour schedule - their fans will still be waiting.
