Fresh off of a busy week, Green Day have taken to the internet to thank their fans for allowing the opportunity to be able to do it all.
This past weekend saw the California-based band being inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame alongside the likes of Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, Lou Reed, and Ringo Starr.
In a post on Instagram, frontman Billie Joe Armstrong wrote a short letter on behalf of the trio to their “Idiot Nation” who have supported the band through all of their highs and lows as well as almost 20 years of being called sell outs.
Armstrong writes that the Hall of Fame award is a lot more than just an award, it’s what allows the band to do what they love most which is to “play music, write songs and follow this psychotic passion called rock n roll” and it’s all thanks to those who stood behind them.

And if you haven’t seen it yet, there’s a video making its rounds on the internet today of teenage Green Day performing at their high school; four years before they were known worldwide.
Kind of cool, right? Enjoy.
