Nobody Likes You: Inside the Turbulent Life, Times, and Music of Green Day : Green Day - guitarist and lead singer Billie Joe Armstrong, bass player Mike Dirnt, and drummer Tre Cool - have rewritten the rules of rock at least twice in a single decade. When they first exploded onto the scene, they rewrote the rule that said punk was dead. And when they made their monumental comeback with the rallying cry "American Idiot," they rewrote the rule that said Green Day was dead. In this compelling, illuminating, and in-depth look at what drives one of America's most beloved rock bands - who they are, where they came from, and where they're going - renowned rock journalist Marc Spitz draws on exclusive interviews conducted with the band during the recording of the American Idiot album, behind-the-scenes observations, and conversations during their sold-out world tour. Spitz goes deeper than ever before to reveal singular and fascinating insight into what makes this band tick. Nobody Likes You is a story of alienation and friendship, of the redeeming rush of playing very loud music, and a reminder of why no other rock band excites such a huge cross section of fans. Surprising, revealing, and filled with the band's tingling energy, it is an unforgettable close-up of Green Day from rise to fall to rise again.
