Punk rock is very rebellious, of course, but it also means thinking for yourself.

Punk rock is very rebellious, of course, but it also means thinking for yourself.

If you go back to 'Pretty Fly,' it was a very popish song, but there was a satirical side to it, and I think that's cool. I like the idea that it's making people think just a little bit. ---->>>

Punk rock wasn't a career choice. It was a hobby that we did for fun. We never thought we'd get as big as our idols in T.S.O.L. or certainly not the Ramones. ---->>>

Selling another 10 million albums is not a priority. Putting out something you're proud of is. ---->>>

There's something undeniably oxymoronic about a 'successful' rock n' roll band. Who wants to hear a bunch of success stories whining about their success? More importantly, what can be the drive behind a band, what can they have to rage against when they are successes? That's a dichotomy every successful band wrestles with. ---->>>

I haven't been able to write a song about flying. It just sounds cheesy. But for me, there's nothing like being up there. ---->>>

You can't sing about the same things as you did when you were 20; it would be ridiculous to sing about, I don't know, being in the quad. You can't really write about mortgage payments or stuff like that... but you can talk about 'let's make the world a better place.' ---->>>
