Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong ran into legendary former Smiths singer Morrissey last month in Los Angeles, and when Billie Joe told him the title of the band’s new album was Father Of All Motherf**kers, he was stunned. Billie Joe Armstrong recently reacted to a painful Jimmy Page claim.
Armstrong told Kerrang Magazine, “He almost spat out his drink when I told him the title. He goes, ‘Oh my gosh, whatever happened to Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band?’”
Green Day fans are divided on Reddit over the the band’s new single “Father Of All Motherf**kers.”
Ghost2268 posted, “Literal trash. I think they’re trolling. I just can’t see them actually being serious. They could’ve done this with a different name. I’m not one of those dudes that can’t accept when a band changes, but this is more than a change. This is just weird. Totally not a fan of this and i honestly think it’s embarrassing. I still respect them and like their other stuff but man I just can’t defend this one. It’s just bad. It’s kind of heartbreaking. They were a huge influence my whole teenage life.”
Billie Joe Armstrong recently made a bold Prince death remark. Reject_Elephant responded, “I honestly think they’re trolling. I’d have so much respect for them if they came out and said the album was a troll.”

The theory doesn’t hold a lot of water. Honestly an intentionally bad album does way more harm to Green Day than it does to Warner.” Billie Joe Armstrong recently reflected on a cocaine and alcohol breakdown he had several years ago.
