    Not one place in this article did they say they might break up. Also they is not one mention of actually relevant new which is a NEW song has been released from Dos

    Troublemaker is actually on UNO. They haven't officially released a song from DOS yet.

    Poorly written article, but gives us a little news feed on how things are with the band. It will be never when the band gets torn apart, and in no time BJ will be out of rehab and in high spirits of the remaining two albums to be released from their trilogy.

    Green Day is one of the few bands that you can count on to be around for a while. Whether you're a fan of the music or not, it's pretty obvious that they're a well functioning band. They're not going anywhere, and there's no legitimate reason to suggest otherwise.

    I hate it when UG can't focus on the topic. They have like one little paragraph of actually new news at the beginning, and then the rest of the article is just whatever else there is to say about the band, which they've usually already had in the past 4 articles on a band.

    They just released an album, are about to release two more, have a massive tour coming up, and right before this all kicks off, Armstrong is trying to get sober. I would say this is great for the band.

    Nah he'll be up on his feet in no time. The just took on writing, recording, and releasing 3 albums to be release within 6 months of each other... That about as much pressure J.K. Rowling had for the last Harry Potter, and she turned to alcohol. Sometimes it happens

    The song is called "It's Fuck Time." This is the second article to make that mistake.

    UG and the misleading titles....
    liam_gal
    how so? Were you expecting a story about them literally jumping off a moving train? he said that on the article, that's why is the title
    I.shower.naked
    I thought they were going to tell a story about their younger days...

    I find that to be quite a leap from the small statement of "We jumped off a moving train". I expected this to be about the "meltdown".

    Seeing what kind of stuff they did in the 90's, I wouldn't be surprised if they actually jumped from a moving train in the band's early days.

    UG seriously, I actually thought they jumped off a moving train as some sort of stunt for a new video. How misleading.
    ehopes
    More like he had an epiphany on stage and now understands that green day should not share the stage with today's generic pop-tarts.
    proudtodrown
    i wish they really would jump off a moving train...

    All I can say about this article is that... "Looking back still a bit fuzzy"
    Mike Quall
    thats probably the cheapest video you could possibly create
    RitchieRamone
    So?
    Mike Quall
    well im not trying to bash on green day bc i like their older material but with a song as typical as that, they could have made the video a little more interesting to add appeal
    RitchieRamone
    Well, this is not a single...it's just a video probably filmed and produced by some amateur director...for fun...and youtube views xD

    Bille Joe's "breakdown" appears to me to be a publicity stunt. I'm a huge Green Day fan, but I'm sorry, I've got to say that that "breakdown" seemed staged and silly.
    captainperoxide
    Yeah, they're canceling a bunch of shows for the publicity. Grow up.
    Tyler.Allain
    captainperoxide, its a matter of weighing opportunity costs. If he feels getting enough media attention will sell enough tickets to subsequent concerts or will help sell, more records canceling those shows makes perfect financial sense. Green Day is in the business of making money. Its perfectly reasonable to suspect he would do this as you would suspect any other pop artist of doing. I've been hearing PLENTY about Billy Joe's "breakdown" at the Iheartmusic radio festival and I'm sure it isn't hurting his wallet. And yes anyone who has an opinion counter to yours must be intellectually or otherwise immature and should "grow up."
    captainperoxide
    If you want to be cynical, and suggest that he put on a show of "breaking down" in Vegas, and is now currently pretending to be in rehab, and canceling shows because of it, that's your prerogative. I personally think it's a ridiculous thing to suggest that Billie, his family, his friends, the Green Day crew and the entirety of Warner are playing along with some scheme to get the band a little more attention. They're one of the biggest bands in the world, and I'm pretty sure they don't need the extra publicity. They regularly play sold-out 3+ hour shows worldwide, and clearly adore their fans. They wouldn't cancel shows unless it was absolutely necessary. And no, people with opinions different to mine don't need to grow up. People whose opinions are stupid and make no sense, on the other hand, are a different story. You have no reason to suspect it was a publicity stunt other than what your gut is apparently telling you, and you're ignoring all evidence to the contrary. That's pretty immature in my book.

    Green Day's set was cut short so USHER could play longer..... I think I'd be ****in pissed too, dude. But instead of smashing the guitar onstage, I'd ****in smash the guitar on Usher's head.
    Tyler.Allain
    This is also not necessarily accurate information. The band released a statement after the incident saying their set was not cut short. So is the band lying?
    captainperoxide
    Their set was not cut short, as in, time they were supposed to have at the end was not taken away. However, they started later than they should've done because Usher went over his time. Hence, their set was shorter than it should've been, but was not cut by the venue.

    UG, wherever or whoever you get these articles from I really hope you're not paying for them.....
