Green Day call trilogy album “somewhere between AC/DC and the early Beatles” in new interview

In a new interview with Rolling Stone, Green Day's Bille Joe Armstrong irons out some of the details about their upcoming trilogy of albums out later this year and early 2013. Check out a few quotes below and read the full interview here.

"I love the punk stuff I grew up on.  But there are so many bands who make the mistake – 'We're going back, old-school.' Well, that's all you're doing. You already did it. So we're changing the guitar sound. We're not going with the big Marshall-amp thing. We wanted something punchier, more power pop – somewhere between AC/DC and the early Beatles."

"The last record got so serious. We wanted to make things more fun."

On the song "Kill the DJ"
"It's a song about being drunk, going through this chaos, feeling fucked up and all you want to do is get more drunk: 'I don't even want to know about it anymore.'"
