"I've been around since 1988". If he had been in rehab back then, maybe Pete Townshend could have taught him how to smash his guitar properly on the first try.

This is probably the most accurate review I can give of Uno. HOWEVER. Mike's a strong songwriter, so maybe Dos will contain songs written and sung by the Dirnt himself. And Tre will be filled with songs similar to Dominated Love Slave, Like A Rat Does Cheese, DUI, Food Around The Corner, Hungry Hungry Models, etc., in other words, silly shit written by Tre that doesn't sound like typical Green Day. Maybe he'll even get to sing. (A fan girl can dream, can't she?)

..."Carpe Diem"...GODDAMNIT. You ripped off your own riff from "Suffocate" from Shenanigans. Well, I guess I should say Jason White is playing the riff from "Suffocate". Sigh. Maybe I can let this slide.

ETA: I keep pausing it cause I'll hear something familiar in one of the songs and turns out it's a phrase or a couple of bars from an earlier Green Day song. It's detracting from the listening experience. Like the bridge in "Rusty James" is the same goddamn melody from the slow part of "Before The Lobotomy" then it morphs into the melody from "Scattered" right at the end.

"Let Yourself Go": What the shit? Never mind, I'm not letting "carpe Diem" slide. This gets a bit hazy in the middle, doesn't it?

Well, yeah, this is better than Breakdown and a throwback to, say, the Nimrod/Warning era. And you're right, traviud, Tre does nothing interesting all record. Maybe he's saving it for Tre. Haha, what if Tre turns out to be an album-length crazy drum solo or something?

iUno! Verdict: Shut up and take my money. But stop ripping yourselves off.

I heard oh love on the radio like sixty three times the other night. Actually, probably only four or five, and I really only listened to the entire song once because once was enough. That song is kind of terrible.

Holy shit, how had I not seen that rant until now?

Wow, that is embarrassing for him. He comes off as completely sad and bitter. Good luck in rehab, man. Stay there for a while.

Yes, yes it is. Also 90 percent sure it, too, borrows parts of its melody from earlier Green Day songs.

I need to watch it, but on mute, because I know what he sounds like when he loses his shit, and he usually sounds like a douchenozzle. But also because I want to see what Mike and Tre are doing, if anything.

The tantrum video keeps getting funnier every time I see it. And that's all it is. Billie Joe throwing a temper tantrum 'cause bad, owd Ushew took too much time. Awww.

Goddamn it, Billie Joe. If you were a true punk, you know what you should've done? I can think of at least three.

1) Interrupted Usher's concert when he went over this time limit and pulled some shit.

2) Somehow managed to fit all of your planned songs into the shortened time.

3) Shortened your set and slagged off Usher for taking too much time.

I realize all of these would've required him to not being getting blitzed backstage and paying attention to the sets. 1 could've started a riot, which would be the punkest thing since the 94 Woodstock Mud War he's done, though I don't think Mike would want to get his front teeth knocked out again. 2 requires more musical skill than Billie's capable of (even sober), although I think Jason White was there, so he easily could've picked up the slack. And 3 would require Billie Joe to not be a complete and utter egotistical douchenozzle who goes around saying that he IS Green Day. What are Mike and Tre, just your back-up band? You fucker. You know what else isn't punk? Running away to rehab. How many of your punk idols have ranted at people onstage and then went about their lives, continuing to say 'Fuck you' to the establishment? I bet you every single goddamn one of them. But maybe it was Warner/Reprise and your handlers who insisted you go to rehab as a chance to save face. I don't know. If he does legitimately have a problem, I hope he gets better.

And is it just me, or is him trying and failing to break his guitar just kind of adorable? I mean, he's a little guy, he had to plant his feet like four feet apart, and even then he barely broke it. It just added to the sight, making him look even more like a little kid crying about not getting his way.

...you wouldn't be playing the iHeartRadio Music Festival. You wouldn't be caught dead within 1,000 miles of the venue.

Bon Jovi, Pitbull, and Taylor Swift played the same festival.

Well, sure, if you want to get technical.

Back in August was in the car with the fam on a Saturday, 'AAF on the radio and the weekend DJ says, "we've got the new Green Day song, this song is awesome (or something to that effect)"...and then I hear "oh love.." couldn't switch the station fast enough.
Terrible may be too kind.

Trying to break the guitar was hilarious. The rest of his rant was just lame. Plenty of other over-indulged popstars (because that's all he is at this point) have gotten drunk and been taped spewing far more verbose and creative rants, poor billie only seems to have about five words in his vocabulary. He doesn't know how to rant properly, sucks at breaking his guitar, and fails at writing catchy pop punk songs.

And the eyeliner looks even more ridiculous now than it did back when american idiot came out. at least with that bloated, over-blown piece of crap and the pseudo-political stance he took during the bush administration, as an ex-fan I had something myself to rant about (even if reading that particular post now scares me and I'm not even sure I understand completely what I was talking about). Now I can't even say he really needs to call it a day and be done with anger. I'm too busy laughing at how pathetic he is.
