Talib Kweli posted a tweet a while ago that this reminded me of:
|Artists remember. The studio belongs to you. The stage belongs to the fan. Be honest in your music. But drop a pint of blood on stage for em|
To me, Green Day can make whatever kind of record they want as long as they don't get lazy onstage.
EDIT: I just referenced Talib Kweli in a Green Day post, the hell?
