Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong had described the band’s new trilogy project, iUno! ¡Dos! ¡Tré!, as a crazy idea that’s working well.
Musically, he toldRolling Stone, it’s power pop. “We wanted something punchier, more power pop – somewhere between AC/DC and the early Beatles,” he said.
Armstrong also described the recording process this time around. “The last two records were studio albums,” he said. “This one – we started rehearsing every day, constructing these songs together. It felt like we were all in a room jamming – everyone in the mix, throwing out ideas. If you listen to it, it feels grand. But it also feels like a garage band.”
