I’m finding most people don’t give much of a fuck about Billie Joe Armstrong’s recent rant. Then, there’s guys like The Faceless’ Michael Keene, who think the Green Day frontman’s psychotic with an overinflated ego.
Some dudes, like Matt Sorum of Guns N’ Roses and Velvet Revolver fame, think Billie Joe did the right thing.
Me? I’m sorta on the fence about it. Yes, it does seem like he’s just being a dickhead rock star, but after all this time, dude’s gotta be frustrated to be part of the machine. I think he just needs to fucking chill out, and retire already.
The world doesn’t need a new Green Day record, let alone fucking three.
Sorum defended Armstrong’s rant, calling it “the most punk rock thing he has ever done.”
That might be possible.
Sorum added on Twitter that he lost some respect for the Green Day frontman when he apologized for his outburst.
“Then [Billy] had to go and ruin it by apologizing. Corporate rock is alive and well. Never really bought that band anyway.”
