Go-Go's Explain The Hook-Up With Green Day's Billie Joe: here.
Go-Go's bassist Kathy Valentine told LAUNCH that the collaboration was spawned by the quick thinking of guitarists Charlotte Caffey and Jane Wiedlin: "He came to see us play. We were in Northern California, and he came to our show. Jane had lost her voice and invited him up to sing the part, 'Hush my darling' part, in 'Our Lips Are Sealed,' and he came running out on stage and did that part. It was really neat. We were all excited. He kind of came again. We were fans of Green Day, and I didn't even know it, but apparently Charlotte and Jane were talking to him and said, 'Hey, if you have any song ideas that would be good for the Go-Go's, send 'em down.'"

Billie Joe Armstrong of the band Green Day struck a similar populist chord in defending the song-swap service.
``I just want my music to be out, and that's always been the main priority,'' Armstrong said.
``It was never really about getting paid. It was just getting people to hear my music and say, 'Hey, I like your song.' So if Napster wants to put my song out so people can download it or whatever, let 'em do it,'' he said.

Make sure to check out the latest issue of Entertainment Weekly.. they gave the Warning video an "A" rating. Also, listeners of the World Famous KROQ were able to catch "Outsider," the B-Side to the Warning singles last night in L.A. on the Rodney and Roq show.I've also stumbled across a cool Green Day page that I feel like helping out.. There's this cool "Green Day Top 25 Sites" page located here, and I'd like to ask anyone who runs a Green Day site to sign up, because right now, we're the only site signed up.. next to the Nirvana Top 25 Site, which is sad. That's it for now, so until next time, live without warning.
February 5th, 2001 - Update By Broc (firstname.lastname@example.org) -
Greetings, everybody. Here's a press release from MSO about the Warning video,that we forgot to post earlier. It's dated January 18th, 2001, so it's a bit"out-of-date," but it rules, so I thought I'd post it anyways. Here it is, straight from MSO:
FROM: MITCH SCHNEIDER/KRISTINE ASHTON/LATHUM NELSON
LIVING WITHOUT WARNING: GREEN DAY recently returned to their Northern California hometown to shoot a video for their new single, the catchy acoustic-based title track from their platinum WARNING (Warners/Reprise). Directed by Francis Lawrence, the video spends a day following a carefree young man while he ignores each of the "warnings" he comes across without the slightest hint of fear or hesitation. Whether he's running with scissors, eating raw chicken or staring at the sun, he confidently keeps pressing forward, unharmed and consequence free. While out for an evening jog, dressed in black from head to toe, he nonchalantly accepts candy from a creepy stranger without a second thought. His actions humorously reflect the song's lyrics that examine the "warnings" everyone fears and obeys. "Warning," the second single from the album of the same name, moves to #3 on next week's Billboard Modern Rock Tracks chart, following the success of "Minority" which held the #1 position on the same chart for six straight weeks. Barry Walters reviewed the WARNING album in Rolling Stone's 2000 Yearbook issue, where it was listed among the Top 50 albums of the year, writing: "Green Day are willing to show their vulnerabilities, which sets them apart from their mainstream progeny, but 'Warning' is an incredibly enthusiastic record. Even when tempos drop and arrangements embrace artful pop, these tender hooligans still sound like they're pogoing." Here's how Playboy's Vic Garbarini recently described the self-produced album: "'Warning' is Green Day's way of staying true to their punk ideals. Even though their latest is a quantum leap in sophistication for the Bay area trio, the band is still angry and still churns out kick-ass punk rock. Green Day proves that punks can grow up without selling out." Meanwhile, GREEN DAY's headlining U.S. concert tour launched January 11 at the Bronco Bowl in Dallas, with the first leg running through January 27 in Tulsa, OK.
February 4th, 2001 - Update By Broc (email@example.com) -
Here's a run down of Green Day on TV this week."Green Day Spotlight" will be on MuchMusic USA Tommorow at 6:30pm ET and 11:30pm ET,and Tuesday, 02/06/01, at 6:30am ET, 6:30pm ET, and 11:30pm, and againon Wednesday, 02/07/01 at 6:30am. Also on Tuesday is the re-run of Green Day'sFarmclub Episode on the USA Network, beginning at 3:00am ET. Then, on Friday, Comedy Central is re-airing the Saturday Night Live Episode featuring Green Day and Roseanne, so make sure to check that out at 12:00pm ET. And on Saturday, 02/10/01, VH1's Before They Were Rockstars will air the episode with Green Day at 2:30am ET.
As you probably noticed, there's a new poll to the right. The results of the last poll,"What's Your Favorite Green Day Album?" ended like this: In first place, receiving 2007 votes, which is 27% of all votes counted, is the 1994 smash "Dookie." Then, in second place, is the Lookout! Records Debut, receiving 1,446 votes (19%) is "1,039/Smoothed Out Slappy Hours." In third is 1997's "Nimrod" with 1,167 votes (15%). Then, in fourth place is 1995's pure-punk smash "Insomniac" with 1,022 votes (13%). Fifth place, trailing fourth by a mere 12 votes is the newest album, "Warning" with 1,008 votes (13%). And finally, my personal favorite, in last place, is the album before they made it big, is 1991's "Kerplunk" receiving 708 votes (9%). Make sure to vote the new poll. Now, I realize there were several festivals that the band played at during December, so if you seen those shows, just select "Somewhere Else."

Hello Everyone! We just got back from the US tour. Thanks to everyone who came. The shows were GREAT. Currently, we are sitting around doing as little as possible, except for Leno tomorrow night. Tre's wife, Claudia, is due to have their baby any time now. And then we are off to JAPAN. Which is always cool. We are still making plans for a big summer tour. I'll keep you posted. Oh and by the way, we had nothing to do with the "kids and bags" deal at the Wembley gig. We weren't aware of what the security was doing that night. I don't think "security" was aware of what they were doing that night.

Who is he? He's Jason White! Straight out of the Ozarks, same as former President Bill Clinton and his daughter Chelsea. She's a Green Day fan. Coincidence? I think not.Jason has been a friend of the band(f.o.b.)for just as long as Green Day has existed. He also sings and plays guitar in Billie Joe's other band, "Pinhead Gunpowder". Yes, he's a singer, a songwriter, a guitar player, and an Arkansaian. All very impressive, but there is more!! When he isn't very busy with Green Day or Pinhead Gunpowder he doesn't just sit around all stoked to be be him, no. He's got another band called the Influents and they kick ace, in spades!! They've been performing throughout the bay area for over a year now and word is people around here are much better off because of it. I can feel it. They also have a fresh new album out called "Check Please". They put all their best songs on it. It comes on Cd for $10.00 or on vinyl for $9.00. You can get it through Adeline Records. You can find all the orderig information by visiting Adelines website which is www.adelinerecords.net or by visting your local punker record store.You should definetly check it out! See ya
