Regarding President Donald Trump's reluctance to acceptance defeat in the U.S. presidential election, Billie Joe Armstrong said in an interview that he is "holding half of the country hostage."

Asked if he feels like there's a change in the mood of the nation after Joe Biden's win, Armstrong told NME, "I think it's inevitable that Trump has to leave, but he's holding half of the country hostage. I can't figure out which side - whether it's the people that support him or the people that hate him? It's a waiting game at this point to get him out, then the temperature will lower a little bit more."

Speaking about this week's release of a vinyl compilation of his "No Fun Mondays" cover series, the Green Day frontman said, "I did 'I Think We're Alone Now' first, and it all just started off as something to just keep me busy because I knew that the rest of the year was getting cancelled."

He added, "I released it on my Instagram to fans and the response was really good. Everybody was saying that it was just nice to hear some music and feel a little bit normal. The sentiment was right."
