"I object. I object to any killing at all," he tells LAUNCH. "You know, it's terrible what happened and I think retaliation definitely makes sense and it's definitely one option. But, personally, I prefer peace. You know, maybe I'm just being ignorant and shortsighted, you know, it's true I'm not running the government, I'm not running the United States. I just don't think that killing people is a good way to remedy people dying. Martin Luther King Jr., said that you can never murder murder itself."

More release info from GreenDayMusic.com:

New International release date for "International Superhits/Supervideos"-- Nov 5th. 

U.S. -- Nov.13th.

Green Day is in the new issue of KERRANG! Magazine as well as on the cover! Look for it in your local bookstores or Tower Records.

GREEN DAY
There's been mud, nudity, self-doubt and broken teeth. But more than a decade after they started, Green Day are still top of the world.

Green Day: "We got stuck with Nirvana's baggage!"
Billie Joe Armstrong recalls the bad old days

Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong has spoken out about the band's struggle to hold onto their underground credibility early in their career.
"Oh, it sucked," he tells Kerrang! this week. "We got stuck with Nirvana's baggage, you know? They never stuck around long enough for 'Maximum Rock N' Roll' to knock on their door and go, 'What the f**k do you think you're doing?'. We did. We got stuck with Pearl Jam's baggage because they weren't even doing interviews at that time. So we weren't just answering questions for ourselves but also for a lot of other bands who were being paraded around. But I'm glad that we went through it and I'm glad that we came through it."
You can read the full cover story on Green Day's rise to fame in this week's Kerrang!, out tomorrow.

Wednesday, June 20th, 2001 - GREEN DAY STILL ROCK.
Green Day just pulled an awesome move. On night two of their summer tour, they played a few songs like "Welcome to Paradise", "Hitchin' a Ride," "Church on Sunday" and "Longview". Then, Billy Joe announced to the crowd that "Unfortunately, that's the end of our set list," and spent the next 20 minutes taking requests from the sweaty crowd of more than 3,000 at the Eagles Ballroom, in Wisconsin. The requests were for mostly rare stuff to which Billy said "OK, but if I f--- up the words, you guys take over." He did and the audience didn't let him down. The rest of the 100-minute set showcased Green Day's melodic side, with hooky hits like Dookie's "Basket Case" and "Minority", both of which received anthem treatments as Armstrong essentially turned the crowd into part of the band, conducting sing-alongs with all the enthusiasm and precision of Bruce Springsteen.- Much Music

New Green Day Lyrics to the song 'Maria':

MARIA

She smashed the radio
with the board of education
turn up the static left of 
the state of the nation

Turn up the flame
step on the gas
burning the flag at half mast
she's a rebel's forgotten son
an export of the revolution

She is the first voice
of the last ones in the line
she'll drag the lake
to keep the vendetta alive

Bring in the head of the government
the dog ate the document
somebody shot the President
and noone knows where Maria went?

Maria,
Maria,
Maria, where did you go?...

Be careful what your offering
your breath lacks the convicion
drawing the line in the dirt
because the last decision.. is no!

"Bob Dylan At 60: Weiland, Stipe, Wyclef Tip Their Hats": here

Billie Joe Armstrong, Green Day — "He showed me how to stuff as many lyrics into one song as you can get. 'Like a Rolling Stone' was one of the first songs that got into that feeling of abandon. It sounds like he's talking to some trust-fund college kid who came up and had the world on a silver platter and then he suddenly has to fend for himself, has a lot of growing up to do. One of the reasons he's so legendary is that he's so human, he's put out crap, too. That's what makes him even better — he has evolved. Eventually everybody makes crappy records, but to come back and make something halfway decent ..."

Letter from Mike Dirnt:

Friends today is a sad, but proud day in the history of (punk) rock-n-roll and our lives. I woke up this morning to find that Joey Ramone had passed on Easter Sunday 2001. Ironically religion gets its Icon back and American punk culture loses theirs. I think an end of an era has come and I've never felt as old as I do right now. I remember in junior high when I heard the Ramones at a party or a skate park I knew that I was at the place to be. Right now I am listening to the Ramones Anthology. The songs mean a lot more to me today and alot of other bands mean so much less. Thanks always comes a day late and a dollar short but my respect has and will always be there for the band that showed me that simple songs and a simple life could make you happy. "Here today and Gone Tomorrow" Thank you to all of our Ramones for everything and Hail to the Chief. Oh yeah!! and the kid in the Ramones tshirt will always be cool....
GABBA GABBA HEY
