Green Day Have a Message For Fans

GreenDay

Following their first show in over a year and being inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong took to Instagram to express a message of gratitude to fans that acts as a great reminder as to why they have remained such a large influence in music. You can view the message (and the original post) below.

“dear you

I can’t express enough how much love is in my heart for all of you in our green day community.
for me to try to put it into words almost feels awkward.
sometimes I don’t always like to use the word “fan”. I think I can speak on behalf of me mike and Tre when I call you family or community. Because you all truly grew up together with us and shared this journey together.
this is more than an award. it’s the privilege to play music, write songs and follow this psychotic passion called rock n roll.

and We share this honor together. because honestly YOU ARE our rock n roll hall of fame.
idiot nation forever

rage and love

Billie Joe”
