Warning was one of the first albums that got me into this genre. Pretty much the most recent thing I spin by them.

Personally, I think taking a break between records will probably do them some good. For them, that seems to be when they perform best (Nimrod, American Idiot) and pull off something different and interesting.

I'm just a bit bummed that they never did a proper tour wherein they hit Massachusetts this last go-round.

Oh please.. Green Day will never break up. And I'm not being hyperbolic, I honestly think they'll play until the day they die

It's normal to take a break between albums...And of course they're not going to tour relentlessly for the Trilogy 'cause it was fuckin' horrible. They're probably just going to try to get their act together and come out with something better in a couple of years (at least, that's what I hope they're doing).

Listened to AI and it's great. The trilogy deserves the landfill treatment.

I like what you said about Tre. The first songs I played on the drums were Green Day. That was 15 years ago. As an adept drummer, I can honestly tell you that most of his playing is almost embarrassingly easy. Tre is a good drummer, and he's probably not allowed to get too complex within the constraints of Green Day, but he makes Travis Barker look like a God behind the kit.


Becuz Travis is a god... Da fuck? That's his own fault that Billie wants him to play the same shit.mark and tom know how good Travis is and they embrace it. For instance the violence intro they do now is awesome.

With the guys putting together a documentary about their earlier years, alongside Billie Joe writing new music for a theatre production, the Heart Like A Hand Grenade documentary possibly (and finally) being released to the public, Mike working with The Frustrators, and with Foreverly (Billie Joe + Norah) just being released and such, they'll be kept pretty busy for a good part of 2014, in terms of projects. Due to the many expectations and demands, you can kinda see how that contributed to Billie Joe's past addiction problem.

I'll miss them terribly, but they'll be back. Once they're raring to go with a new Green Day project, they'll be better than ever.

No one liked 21st century breakdown...? Just don't get this "this band hasn't been good for a decade" point.
