We spoke with Green Day's Billie Joe Armstrong in June of 2012 about the band's album trilogy, 'Uno!,' 'Dos!' and 'Tré!.' "We wanted something punchier, more power pop – somewhere between AC/DC and the early Beatles," he said.
A guy walks up to me and asks ‘What’s Punk?’ So I kick over a garbage can and say ‘That’s punk!’ So he kicks over a garbage can and says ‘That’s punk?’ and I say ‘No, that’s trendy!'” — Billie Joe Armstrong
