    Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong knows that his band releasing a trilogy of albums - Uno!, Dos! and Tres!- may seem excessive, especially in this digital day and age, but he doesn't care. Fuck consumerism!

    The singer told Billboard, "I'm not going to conform to some consumer need. I believe people want to hear this kind of music, that people want to hear records that have a story. Or maybe they don't. I have no idea."

    Are you excited about the trilogy?
