tre cool quotes

You know that kid who won’t accept the fact that there’s no genitals on a Barbie doll, or on dogs in cartoons? I was that kid. ‘How come that dog doesn’t have a weenie like our dog?’ I used to like the word weenie. Other kids just accepted it. They’d move on from there and watch the cartoon. Not me. If I don’t see dick and balls, I change the channel.

Songs are like a form of chaos that you can control. It’s a form of intelligence that maybe you only understand and you hope that someone else can understand. And you can be anyone you want: you can be as grandiose as you want or you can be as down in the gutter as you want. It’s just sort of whatever emotional freeway you’re on at the time.

Tré reads the dirty ones. I’ve read a few. It’s flattering and sort of weird at the same time. I don’t really know what to think about young girls thinking about old men like that. But the ones I have read were very well-written and as long as kids these days are still being creative and writing, then I think it’s cool.

Billie and Mike are my best friends. We do everything together. We’re not the kind of band that just sits around at the hotel all day waiting for the show. We don’t go out on our own and do our own things like, ‘Hey, see you at the show.’ We’re always hanging together, doing things together, and we love playing and making music.

I think the only people that should have a responsibility for singing about social issues or politics or anything like that are the ones that aren’t full of shit about it you know? Or the ones that aren’t preaching. You know, I mean if you are going to write a political song it’s gotta come from the same place as where you write a love song. You know it can’t just be some empty rhetoric and a bunch of finger pointing, you have to have yourself involved in it. So it’s like when I have a song like ‘Don’t wanna be an American idiot’, I’m talking about myself and what’s going on in my country at the same time, how do I fit into it and how do I feel alienated from it at the same time. So it’s self-depricating but it’s also trying to empower yourself.
