at the end.' I think we will. In some ways we already do.

She gives me a good excuse to watch cartoons.

Tré talks about the US's action after the WTC bombings:

I object. I object to any killing at all. 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 murder a murderer but you can never murder murder itself.
Tré Cool

 

 
Satan. Satan, Satan. That's what's different. We're all firm believers in Satan now.
We think Satan is cool. How the fuck do you think a band like Green Day got popular?

Tré Cool

 

   
I don't understand what Billie just said so, I'll talk about chickens....
Tré Cool

 

   
A guy walks up to me and asks 'What's Punk?'. So I kick over a garbage can and say 'That's punk!'.
So he kicks over the garbage can and says 'That's Punk?', and I say 'No that's trendy'!

Billie Joe Armstrong

 


I write better when I'm stoned.
Billie Joe Armstrong

 


It's not how you pick your nose, it's where you put that booger that counts.

It's better to regret something you have done
than to regret something you haven't done.
