Green Day recently told NME that they’re inspired by their fans’ “expectations of them to be great”, as they discuss what goes into putting the setlist together of their upcoming tour. Watch our video interview with the band below.

“You know it’s great, we’re playing songs off ‘Nimrod’, ‘Kerplunk’, the new record, ‘American Idiot’, songs that are off ‘Insomniac’ that we haven’t played in over 20 years,” frontman Billie Joe Armstrong told NME. “We played these shows for the hardcore fans in the theatres and clubs and we just had a blast, and you could tell because the energy in the crowd was energising us.”

“They expect us to be great, and we have to live up to that. We just put as much passion as we can into what we do. We write the record together, we make the record together, and it’s our record at the point. When it’s finished, on the day it gets released, it doesn’t belong to us any more. It belongs to the fans.”

Mike Dirnt added: “We have a thing where either we’ll work it out at soundcheck, or we’ll just make a mess, make something memorable happen on the spot. That’s the one thing about this band – we just jump into stuff, even if it’s in the middle of a show.”
