80 armstrong

The San Francisco-Oakland (80) Bay Bridge, which the Green Day song title and Billie Joe Armstrong’s nickname for his wife, 80, come from.

The story goes that on the way home from Minnesota in the early 90s, where Billie first met Adrienne, he saw the 80 highway signs around the bridge and nicknamed her 80 because it sounded like Adie.

The band have also talked about the sight of the bridge reminding them they were almost home after gruelling tours and Billie of how his dad, who was a truck driver, had the same experience.
