Green Day Album: Billie Joe Armstrong, Mike Dirnt Talk Sexual Influences

Green Day members Billie Joe Armstrong and Mike Dirnt have revealed that the tracks on their upcoming album will focus on sex.

Unlike the politically charged messages of albums past -- one of which, American Idiot, became a Tony Award-winning Broadway musical -- Armstrong and Dirnt explained that they will mainly be singing about "f****ing."

"I think it's so personal and so voyeuristic," Armstrong said in a YouTube video posted by the group. "This is the first time we've ever really sung about f*****g."

"The songs are gonna f*****g blow their minds," Dirnt added.

Armstrong may not have sung about sex before, but a revealing fashion decision gave Southwest Airlines license to kick him off a flight back in September.

"Just got kicked off a Southwest flight because my pants sagged too low!" the singer tweeted, adding in his signature colorful language, "What the f**k? No joke!"

Here's to hoping Green Day can pull off their sex-soaked ninth studio album without getting into too much trouble.
