“It’s being mixed now. It started being mixed a couple weeks back. They’re actually going tomorrow to go down and listen to mixes and do things and… We’re mixing and we still are in the process of [finalizing the] album title, artwork, songtitles. We haven’t even got there yet. But the music’s done.”

13 Green Day Songs That Sound Like Songs By Other Artists

Green Day are one of the most divisive bands in modern punk rock. Many claim that the band aren’t punk at all (and those people aren’t necessarily wrong), while just as many give credit to the band as being their introduction to punk rock, even if they don’t really care much for the group anymore (and this second group isn’t necessarily wrong either). Regardless of which viewpoint that you side with, you may have noticed that there are a lot of Green Day songs that sound like songs by other bands. So many, in fact, that we’ve gathered thirteen songs by the Bay Area act, and the thirteen songs that they kind of sound like, below.

A disclaimer: It’s well-documented that “Warning” lifted its riff from The Kinks’ “Picture Book”, there was a decently popular mashup a decade ago that highlighted the similarities between “Boulevard of Broken Dreams” and Oasis’ “Wonderwall”, and every punk rocker and their fat drunk uncle knows that “American Idiot” sounds way too much like “Doublewhiskeycokenoice” by Dillinger Four. I’m letting you know right now that you’re not going to find these three songs below. They were left out on purpose, so don’t say that I forgot them.

Live Video: Tim Armstrong joins Green Day on stage to cover Op Ivy’s “Knowledge” and Rancid’s “Radio”

Well this is fun.  I think I would have given my left nut to be at this show.  At a rare House of Blues appearance in Cleveland last night Green Day celebrated their 25th anniversary and their induction into the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame with a three hour performance which included a guest appearance from none other than Rancid‘s Tim Armstrong.  Tim joined the band on stage for a cover of Operation Ivy’s “Knowledge” (Tim, of course was also a member of Operation Ivy, back when he was known simply as “Lint”) which then segued into a cover of Rancid’s “Radio”.  Fun fact: Tim and Billie Joe wrote “Radio” together 20 years ago).

Green Day to be inducted to Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame by Fall Out Boy

We’ve known since December that 1990s pop-punk stalwarts Green Day are headed to the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame, and now we know who will be inducting said Bay Area three-piece into said Hall of Fame. That honor(?) has been bestowed upon…Fall Out Boy. Sounds about right, I guess…

Today also brought with it the announcement that Paul McCartney, Stevie Wonder, Patti Smith, Peter Wolf, John Mayer and Steve Cropper will be joining Pete Wentz & Company as the other inductors, and they’ll be inducting Ringo Starr, Bill Withers, Lou Reed, the Paul Butterfield Blues Band, Stevie Ray Vaughan and The “5” Royales, in that order. For whatever reason, event organizers didn’t announce who’d be inducting Joan Jett and The Blackhearts into the Hall. Weird.

The 2015 Hall Of Fame induction ceremony takes place April 18th at Cleveland’s Public Hall, and it’ll air on HBO on May 30th.



Billie Joe Armstrong to open guitar shop in Oakland, CA

Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong has announced he and Pinhead Gunpowder band-mate Bill Schneider will be opening a guitar shop called Broken Guitars in Oakland, California. The store is set open on April 3rd, and it will be located at 423 40th Street – directly across the street from 1-2-3 Go! Records, which once occupied the space.

Roughly 75 guitars will be on the wall when Broken Guitars opens, with a majority of the inventory coming from Armstrong and Schneider’s personal collections. A wide variety of amplifiers and full-service repairs on instruments and amps will also be available.

Schneider says that he and Armstrong “want to be a shop for musicians,” adding that the focus of Broken Guitars’ inventory will be used American guitars. The store’s target audience is players on a budget, so the instruments will generally range in price from $400 to $800.
