Green Day are finally getting inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and guess who’s doing the honors? That’s right, Fall Out Boy. The ceremony will take place this year, airing on HBO on May 30th.
Frontman Billie Joe Armstrong spoke with Rolling Stone about Green Day’s induction; a statement which you can view below:
“For me, rock & roll is not an outdated term. To me, it means freedom. It was a way for me to express myself and I’m eternally grateful for the fact that I’ve been able to do that pretty much my whole life. It’s never lost that meaning for me, whether I’m a fan myself or for Green Day fans. It’s just the most liberating thing in the world. The fact that we’re getting recognized for it in the company we have, it’s just an incredible feeling.”
