Green Day rocker MIKE DIRNT is adamant he'll never move out of America, despite his disgust at US President George W Bush's re-election in November (04).

The AMERICAN IDIOT bassist and staunch Democrat refuses to accept criticism he should leave his home country if he dislikes it so much.

He says, "Then all that would be left in the United States would be a bunch of rednecks.

"You've just got to think of yourself as one of the people on the correct side of the Divided States of America."
