The September 28th Rolling Stone Issue
Warning (October 3rd) Billie Joe Armstrong says his band has always had broad musical tastes - "Not just the Ramones" - but it's taken a while to show them off. For Warning, he "wanted to play more acoustic rock songs," inspired by part by Bruce Springsteen's The River and Bob Dylan's Bringing It All Back Home. The album finds the band stretching on songs like the Kinks-influenced title track, and "Misery," a bona fide polka.
