Coming up with a New Year's resolution is never easy, sticking to one throughout the entire year is even harder. Billie Joe took to Instagram, posting a selfie taken at the Andy Warhol Museum and sharing a few words to inspire the “young rock n rollers” of the world just in time for the new year. If this isn't an ideal mantra for 2018, we don't know what is.

“Dear young rock n rollers. Be brave. Be tough. Spit your anger. Piss people off. Don’t be normal. Don’t be trendy. Be loud. Live out loud. Cuss . Swear. Be offensive. Tell the truth. YOUR truth. Fuck authority. Spray paint the walls with your song titles. Be dirty. Smash glass. Make a statement. Don’t be a wimp. Don’t be a follower. Unhinged. We need more young rebel heroes with loud guitars. #andywarholmuseum”
