Commonly know to teeny boppers as 'Sex God'.more...
Amazingly, this is not his real job.
Billie Joe Armstrong is the lead singer of used-to-be punk rock band Green Day.
I claim that they 'used-to-be punk' simply because I think they have now strayed (perhaps not through their own faults) from the original values of punk.
Punk was originally the attitude a group of people shared who were going against the mainstream, and who held a great interest in the political world and shared feelings of mutiny against persons in authority.
Since the release of 'American Idiot' (which also started out as a political album), Green Day have arrived in the mainstream, releasing well-received hits such as 'American Idiot', 'Boulevard Of Broken Dreams' and 'Wake Me Up When September Ends'.
I for one do not find anything particularly special about any of their singles, preferring the album tracks instead which - thankfully - have remained somewhat sacred from the prying musical tastes of annoying high school girls who, incidentally, wouldn't know 'Dookie' from a pile of dung.
I do not, however, believe that Green Day have 'sold out'. I think the reason many people think they have is because of the fan base they have recruited since the release of their latest album. Fans like these claim to have liked Green Day 'all their lives' However, I find that hard to believe as the entries posted in Urban Dictionary claiming such...umm...claims were posted AFTER THE RELEASE OF AMERICAN IDIOT.
|16.||Benny Go Home|
Benny Go Home was formed to counter the onslaught of southbound bennys to the Jersey shore, each and every summer. Its ranks are made up of locals sick of the invading hoards and formed as an evolution of the Benny Patrol, forming its political wing. Their end goal is to rid the Jersey shore of those who would disrespect any local, or his home. Through any means, Benny Go Home shall make the shores of Jersey safe for all locals.
"Benny Go Home shall form the voice of the people. Though we face a great foe, we are infinitely more powerful in our unity. Forming one heart, one mind, we shall vanquish them from our lands. They battle an enemy, born of the shore, who has never known defeat, and will not stop until victory."
Talking Points Memo
1. A term used primarily by political pundits to focus and direct debate and/or media spin on a particular topic.
2. A progressive internet Blog popular with grassroots political organizing efforts.
President Bush was given a TPM by Karl Rove, also known as "Bush' Brain".
"Did you read TPM regarding the latest lies from the Administration?"
A Neoconservative. One who accepts the RNC talking points without question. From an advertisement which appears on most right-wing blogs: a muscular man claims you can "master your body weight" via exercises that appear to involve humping the floor.
I knew I was making a good political point when all the floor humpers started calling me a libtard.
Swiftboating is a term used to describe the campaign waged by a group named "Swiftvets and POW's for Truth" against presidential candidate John F. Kerry. A swiftboat is a navy craft with a shallow draft used in the Vietnam war (PCF - Patrol Craft - Fast); It is armed with machine guns, usually from two fixed points. It is the type of craft that Kerry served on in the Vietnam war.more...
Many (not all) of the swiftvets served with John Kerry and didn't believe he was presidential material. They went public with their beliefs. Among their claims was that Kerry gamed the system by receiving Purple Heart Medals for minor injuries in an effort to end his tour of duty. Kerry received three Purple Hearts in four months and shows no debilitating injury; which is most unusual. Moreover, he will not release his service medical records. The intersection of this data strongly suggests that the claims of the swiftboaters has a good foundation.
The petition from the Swiftboat Vets makes, among others, this claim against John Kerry:
". . .Upon your return from Vietnam, you betrayed your fellow veterans by accusing them of engaging in horrendous war crimes. Through your post-war activities, and during Senate testimony viewed by the entire nation, you created and nurtured the myth that American soldiers in Vietnam were involved in such crimes on a daily basis, and that such activity was sanctioned by our commanding officers. Specifically, you stated that we: "had personally raped...
