Green Day singer and guitarist Billie Joe Armstrong spoke in a recent interview with ‘Kerrang’ and explained how Slayer guitarist Kerry King inspired the title of their upcoming album, ‘Father of All Motherfuckers.’
While talking about the upcoming album of the band, Billy Joe explained why the album called ‘Father of All Motherfuckers.’ He said that he was inspired by Slayer guitarist Kerry King for the album title.
Here’s what Billie Joe Armstrong stated:
“Um… It’s just a badass title! I think it was Kerry King from Slayer – they have an album called ‘God Hates Us All,’ and someone asked, ‘Do you really think God hates us all?’
And he goes, ‘I don’t know! It’s just a badass title!’ [Laughs] As soon as the title came up, I was like, ‘Oh man, this is good.'”
He also talked about his current musical preferences. He continued:
“I’ve decided that I don’t like long songs, and that’s coming from a band that wrote [the nine-minute-long] ‘Jesus of Suburbia’!
I’m like a 16-year-old with ADHD. If I’m listening to other people’s music, I always look at how long the song is. If it’s over three minutes I go, ‘Urgh, pass. I don’t wanna listen to that shit.'”
