“I was terrified watching the Stooges, Iggy could cause more damage than all the tough guys I knew from my neighborhood. Iggy was wounding me psychically forever. There was never a yesterday. There was never a set they played before. There was never a set they were ever going to play again. From then on rock and roll could never be anything less to me. Whatever I did, whatever it was, writing or playing, there had to be blood on the pages, there had to be blood on the strings because anything less than that was bull shit and a waste of fucking time."
- Billy Joe Armstrong
