Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong has dubbed Bon Jovi the "worst band" he has ever toured with.

The singer said he was unimpressed with the 80s rock icons and said they were no fun to share the stage with. He also hailed The Hives.

He told Kerrang! magazine:

'The best [band we've shared a stage with] is probably The Hives, they're a great live band. [As for the worst] Oh boy, I have to go with Bon Jovi.'


The singer also revealed that the funniest rumour that he has heard about himself was that he was dead. He added: ''I was in Los Angeles recording 'American Idiot', and I got a call from my wife freaking out. It was just internet stuff gone wild.''

Green Day recently debuted a brand new track titled 'Nuclear Family', scroll down to the bottom of the page to hear it.

The band's new album trilogy, '¡Uno!, ¡Dos!, ¡Tré!', will be released in three stages. '¡Uno!' comes out on September 24, with the second LP, '¡Dos!', coming out on November 12 and '¡Tré!' on January 14, 2013.
