They said somewhere that they want to make music together for as long as they're alive and i personally think they have reached a stage in their career where anything is possible yes they may not be famous forever they may not be in the charts forever but they seem to me like they love eachother more than anything they are truly best friends.Im sure they will play together for a long time, maybe they wont release the songs always but they love playing music togheter to much to ever stop. in an article i read billie joe said "80 nows green day will always come first to me, no matter what"
if you love your band more than your wife you are hardly gonna quit anytime soon
like he says in biab green day is me, that is who i am

i think they are one of them bands that will stick along for a long time because 2 of the main reasons bands split are because of fighting all the time and because of having no fans ... and lets face it i dont see either of these happening anytime soon

I fully agree Wink

to quote one of them (i think it was billie)
'the only way any one of us is leaving this band is in a bodybag.'

if theyre that devoted to what they do, they could be 70 and still making records.

well i dont fully agree with the whole "loving green day more than his wife" thing someone just said..I dont think he ment it exactly like that...i mean if it came down to it and Adrienne was like "me and the kids...or green day" Billie would go with his family even if it was for a while you know....but shw ould never do that and knows how much Green Day means to Billie and that he would be pretty unhappy without them...thats what makes them work...I think thats what he mean by she knows green day comes first......Green Day is just as much a part of her life as his and to the both of them they come first you know..as long as the boys arent being harmed by it or whatever......and they have been able to make a balance between them that seems to work for them........If Green Day were to ever break up...it wouldnt have anything to do with Billies family unless god forbid one of them fell extremly ill...but even then i think it would just be on hold......

i think if my friends heard you call 34 old, they would shoot you Shocked

if they stay together i think they've got another 5 years tops in them, because they've gone mainstream they can't last that long, it's usually outside groups that stay together forever.


I agree with that when people become mainstream they lose sight of things....

You're welcome. Wink
I mean, they love what they're doing, so why quit? Personally I don't wanna think about them splitting up.. at all. Rolling Eyes

alrighty, if u must know, im really just scared that they might end their band, but i geuss i shouldnt be because if Billie can have a family and be super famous then i dont need to worry. sry for bein a jerk. : (


No no no he's already said he'll be doing this until the day he dies. Green Day is his life and they all don't know what they'd do without their band...I'm not worried about it at all....

am i the ONLY one who heard tre i think it was say, "The only way any of us are leaving Green Day is in a body bag"? they love what they're doing, i don't think they'll give it up anytime soon, even if they do fall out of favor with the world.


I think I did too. But whoever did say that is right. The only way Billie Joe, Tre' or Mike will leave Green Day is in a body bag.

Yeah, Billie said that.


But I dont think they are to old, they will stop when they want to, not because people think they are to old

they're getting paid big money for what they're doing, i don't think they're just gonna stop right now....or as my mum said-they might leave the music industry for a while and then make a comeback, which i don't think would be too bad

Nah, they don't. Billie's said many times before he does it because it's what he loves doing.
Age or money doesn't matter to them I don't think.

in an article from 96 when there were rumours of greenday splitting up, they released an interview saying theyd be around untill one or all of them died. they probably wont stay mainstream forever, but who cares im sure there are plenty of crappy one hit wonder emo bands out there to fill the mainstream, greenday will release music as long as they are still capable. and 33 is NOT old!! look at NOFX they are in their 40s
i think anyone that thinks theyll split up is wrong,cause most of you havnt grown up with them and dont know them as well as you think.

34 old? Green Day old? No way! There are sooooo many bands/singers older than that

na don't think they care much about the fame thing either...but i mean, if you were getting paid a big amount of money for something you enjoyed to do and that you would probably do in your own time anyways....you'd keep going until you physically couldn't anymore.know what i mean? Laughing you might as well be getting paid for it :]
