In a completely shocking move (really that shocking?), Green Day have revealed that they are in fact, Foxboro Hot Tubs. We told you about some “speculation” a while back, but it was obvious that they were Green Day.
The band added:
“We think that the only similarity [between the Hot Tubs and Green Day] is that we are the same band. That is basically the only similarity, We are Jason White, Jason Freese, Michael Pritchard, Frank Edwin Wright the Third and the Reverend Strychnine Twitch. … We are four guys who love to play music and be spontaneous, [and] after a few late night jams and a few too many bottles of wine, we were inspired to record some rockin’ eight-track recordings.”
Whoa there a second! so the only similarity is that you’re the same band? Oh, well who knows mate, it may be a coincidence. If it wasn’t for you being you, it could have been anybody else being you. You followin’ me?
Also, Green Day bassist Mike Dirnt’s real name is Michael Pritchard, and drummer Tre Cool was born Frank Edwin Wright III. As for Reverend Strychnine Twitch, that’s probably Billie Joe’s real name. Later this month they will release their first album, titled Stop Drop And Roll. Now, is this a debut or a follow up to American Idiot? We’ll just wait and see.
