Green Day vs Angry Mom
There old news but notable and a good re-read always makes us
“Back in December of 1996, worried about the influence of Green Day's "explicit" fourth album, Insomniac, on her 8-year-old son, a mother decided to write a slightly aggressive letter of complaint to the band. It clearly hit a nerve, and she soon received a handwritten response from then-24-year-old frontman Billie Joe Armstrong. Both letters can be seen below.
Apparently this exchange inspired the song "Reject," as found on Green Day's next album, Nimrod. Images supplied by Dexter.”
