Green Day Overwhelmed By Nominations

GREEN DAY frontman BILLIE JOE ARMSTRONG is amazed his band have been nominated for eight MTV Video Music Awards -

because he never intended to make great videos when he set out in music.

The HOLIDAY singer has enjoyed a meteoric year which has seen the band's latest album AMERICAN IDIOT top charts around the world and win a Grammy Award, but he still finds it surreal to be the subject of so many accolades.

Armstrong says, "This whole thing has just been surreal and overwhelming. It's an amazing feeling when you get recognized for one thing, but when you get nominated eight times over, it goes to a whole new level.

"When we first started this band, we didn't even expect to make videos, and now we're getting nominated for videos. Words can't describe it, but we're going to come and kick ass and have a good time."
