Quotes

#Quote
1 [on his female fans] They have got bad taste. I am not a good-looking guy.
2 I'm not as depressed as I used to be. The Prozac's working!
3 I never thought that being obnoxious would get me where I am now.
4 A lot of people, when they talk to me, I can't wait for them to shut up. Like, "Shut up. you're a moron". They have nothing to say, you know?
5 One thing I want to teach my son is sensitivity to other people. I want to teach him not to be this macho freak.
6 There's nothing wrong with being a loser, it just depends on how good you are at it.
7 Minority is about being an individual. It's like you have to sift through the darkness to find your place and be that individual you want to be your entire life.
8 Punk is always something that's going to be with us and to try and explain that would be stupid at this point.
9 [on the media] You know, I've made it a point not to read a thing. From what people have been telling me, everything has been really positive. Hey, it's the kids who are going to buy our records and they're not going to read things written in "Entertainment Weekly", anyway. Critics never really want to like my band. I think they have this thing up their asses that we are a lesser band now. They feel we weren't the originators of punk rock or we are not cool or whatever. So everything that comes from these people sounds somehow backhanded, like with the "Spin" piece. For a while we were a best -kept secret and for a long time none of these bigger magazines knew about Lookout Records or for that matter the Berkeley scene in general. At the time, I think that irritated them a bit. To them, if they don't know about it, it obviously wasn't cool enough to begin with.
10 [on what he would like to do instead of music] I've done some producing, that I can do. But acting for me, I'm pretty sure I don't know how to do that. I really don't want to go through a process of trying to figure out how to do it. I think as soon as you start acting that realness of you that people love is gone because you're pretending to be something else on screen.
11 I sound like an Englishman impersonating an American impersonating an Englishman.
12 A guy walks up to me and asks, "What's Punk?". So I kick over a garbage can and say. "That's punk!". So he kicks over the garbage can and says, "That's Punk?", and I say, "No that's trendy!"
13 My mom was from Oklahoma, hence the name Billie Joe . . . It's not William Joseph, it's "just" Billie Joe.
14 You think your life is tough? Try being a parent!
15 School is practice for the future, and practice makes perfect. But nobody's perfect, so why practice?
