Green Day will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2015.
Only a handful of bands get into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame the first year they're eligible these days. When Billie Joe Armstrong learned that Green Day were one of them, he could barely process the news. "I had to go for a walk," he says. "I wound up at this cafe and I sat down and my son met up with me. I told him and he was like, 'Oh my God. No way.' It just took some time to sink in. We're in incredible company and I'm still trying to make sense of this. It's just incredible."

Jason White of Green Day has been diagnosed with tonsil cancer.
We have some news to report regarding our brother Jason White, and wanted you to hear it from us before word spread. Jason recently underwent a routine tonsillectomy, and his doctors discovered a treatable form of tonsil cancer. Thankfully they caught it early and he should make a full and speedy recovery.

Please join us in sending him love and positive healing vibes during this time.

Judy Greer, Fred Armisen and Selma Blair have joined Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong in the upcoming music drama Geezer. The film will contain new songs written and performed by Billie.
“Geezer” centers on the mid-life crisis of a husband and father who, on his 40th birthday, decides to revisit his punk-rock past by throwing an extravagant party in the presidential suite of the Drake Hotel -- where he encounters his beautiful ex-girlfriend and former bandmates who have since moved on to bigger and better things.

Green Day's Mike Dirnt will be producing an indie film called "Crickets."
Dirnt, along with Green Day's longtime manager Pat Magnarella, will produce “Crickets” from a script by Alfredo Botello. The story, by Botello and Jack Umbrella, centers on the relationship of two estranged brothers. One, an aspiring stand-up comic, is dying of a terminal illness. He asks his brother, a depressed office drone, for one last request: to go on stage and perform his material for him to see if he ever really had talent. What he doesn't reveal, though, is that he has an even bigger surprise in store.

Swedish artist Avicii mentions in a new interview that he plans to work with Billie Joe of Green Day on his new album.
It seems as if he still can not quite believe it, that he has outgrown his little room in which he created the first songs on the computer - and now plays along, even in the big leagues. "For my next album I got myself Billie Joe Armstrong of Green Day, Brandon Flowers of the Killers and even Chris Martin into the studio - this is so great for me, I have always admired them all."

Kerrang! is putting out this American Idiot cover album because this is something that we need and they asked Falling In Reverse to cover "She's A Rebel." Do yourself a favor and listen (in the replies) from 0:50 to 1:15. It is a massive stretch to call this a "tribute album."

Phil Everly's (The Everly Brothers) last ever interview, where he talked about Billie Joe and Norah Jones' Foreverly record, can be found on Paste.
Well, the two pieces that I have heard are just really, really sensational, really good. I heard “That Silver Haired Daddy of Mine” the other day, and they did it a little faster, and it’s really quite interesting. It’s one of my favorite songs, anyway, but it was always hard for me. On the last tour my brother and I did in England, we were doing an acoustic set in the middle of it, and we would do that one. And it’s a real hard song to sing—it just brings up that…that emotional feeling. But Billie Joe and Norah do a great job with it.
Jason Tate on 01/09/14 - 02:28 PM
Billie Joe Armstrong (Green Day) wrote a piece on the passing of Phil Everly of The Everly Brothers.
The Everly Brothers’ harmonies are so immaculate. You can tell that they’re brothers and have been singing together basically since birth. They improved on the whole craft of singing harmony, and their harmonies are pretty much better than everybody’s.
