    "in a sense" is at critical mass in usage

    In a sense, the fact of the matter is, you've said it all.

    They sounded good. I enjoyed their playing.

    Unfortunately Wiggy had to interject his bullshit into what was a very decent live concert.

    When Howard says "SOOO fucking..." it drives me up the wall. "in a sense" was used extensively. As was wig trying to answer his own questions to the band with his own psychological bullshit

    Did Howard have them play their biggest hits/his favorite songs?

    Ok, I just heard part of the Green Day interview. Howard went on and on how amazing the opening riff of Brain Stew was an incredible riff and asked them how they came up with it. To my disappointment, Billie Joe Armstrong didn't say "Well, I was listening to Chicago's 25 or 6 to 4 and I thought to myself 'Hey, now there is a good riff for me to steal'".



    I also caught a minute of the WUS and heard Jon Hein constantly calling Green Day a punk band. Now I love Dookie, but they are only a little more punk than Avril Lavigne and a little less punk than The GoGos.

    Green Days is a punk band and so was Nirvana. Stop being snobs. Avril just copped the punk look/image. Green Day lived the lifestyle.

    "How long did it take you to write (fill in the blank)?"

    Why does he think that's an interesting question for every single musical guest?

    In other words, on another level, in a sense, do all the members of Green Day hate their fathers?

    I am in the music industry, and Billie Joe Armstrong is THE #1 biggest douchebag that I have ever had the displeasure of working with. I have dealt with some total egotistical maniacs, but he takes the cake by far.

    Does Billy Joe talk with his fake British punk voice or does he just sing with it?

    Used to love them. Still have a soft spot for 39/Smooth through Dookie.

    There was definitely a pocket of Bay Area "punk" that was sappy and upbeat, like they used to be. They certainly embodied that image.


    They became so fucking tiresome after Dookie came out, and their punk credibility was questioned. They released that Insomniac album, which was super dark and aggressive....problem is, they were never that aggro to begin with; the album wasnt an exercise in creativity. It was them trying to fit in.

    Also, it could have been a cool moment when that acoustic tune came out. Im not a huge fan of it, but it was cool that they challenged themselves, and expanded into something different. It drove me nuts, though, when they would say, in every fucking interview, that "releasing that song was the most punk rock thing we could have done." Youre not punk rock anymore. Just fucking own it....its okay.

    Everything about the guy is fake. His musicianship is shit, I can't speak on the last few albums because I have not heard them or know anything about them, but I can tell you that he didn't play 80% of the guitar stuff on some of their early stuff. People view him as some great lyricist but I never saw it, I guess because the entire time I was thinking "This guy is a dickhead hack".
