Billie Joe Armstrong: Rock Music Lost Its Attitude & Green Day Is Also to Blame

During a recent interview on the Kevin & Bean Show on KROQ Radio, Green Day singer/guitarist Billie Joe Armstrong addressed the current state of rock while discussing the group’s new single “Father of All…”

Explaining how the song came in a rather spontaneous manner while he was “messing around in the studio” with drummer Tre Cool, Billy said when asked on what the place for actual rock music is in 2019: “I think that it’s lost its attitude in a lot of ways. I think that a lot of – me included – we’re guilty of rock music trying to write the feel-good song of the year, in a lot of ways.

“And it’s, like, nobody wants to feel good, I think rock music is supposed to make you feel bad, like, a bad motherfucker, as they say. And that’s kind of what we’re going for on the next thing, just, like, let’s give a big kick in the ass to rock and roll.”

Discussing the new single’s title, Billie said: “I just thought it was just, like, a badass title. I think it could be sort of related to the current administration, but without getting too political, We have a new album [‘Father of All Motherfuckers’] coming out next year, and it’s the shortest record we’ve made since [1995’s] ‘Insomniac.'”

Green Day’s new album “Father of All Motherfuckers” is due out on February 7, 2020. You can check out the new tune below, upcoming tour dates are available here.
