“They defied expectation multiple times,” Wentz said of the California punks. “When ‘Dookie’ broke I remember thinking ‘this is a band that speaks to me, that sounds like me, that looks like me and they’re played on the radio and MTV. They made an odd kid feel like I had a foothold in pop culture.”
Went proceeded to praise the band’s 2004 album ‘American Idiot’, saying: “It was a great critical response to what was happening in our world, and ‘Boulevard Of Broken Dreams’, can you write a more epic song? There’s a couple but not many.”
Asked if Fall Out Boy would ever collaborate with Green Day, Wentz replied: “They’re definitely at a level where they call the collaborative shots. If they ever called us up we’d definitely answer the phone!”
Fall Out Boy’s concert film, The Boys Of Zummer Tour: Live In Chicago, is out today (October 21) on DVD, Blu-Ray and digital formats.
