Green Day took a five year break in between releasing American Idiot and 21st Century Breakdown, but the punk rockers are making up for it now.
Their newest album, ¡Uno!, will be released this fall on September 24 and fans won't have to wait much longer for another. The 12-track LP is the first in an epic trilogy of records.
Green Day will follow ¡Uno! with ¡Dos! on November 12 and then ¡Tré! on January 14, 2013.

Wow. Regardless of how you feel about him, this is definitely going to be a fascinating read
The latest issue of Rolling Stone features an article with Lil' Wayne, who opened up for the first time about the eight months he spent behind bars at Riker's Island, his job there as a suicide prevention aid, and how he kept himself busy!
According to Weezy, he became so good at Uno that the other inmates didn't want to play with him anymore!
"I'd bust a n***a's ass at Uno. We gamble for phone time. I'd take n***a's commissary: Lemme get them cookies, lemme get them chips, get that soup. They'd be like, 'Oh, we thought you were asleep.' Like you can't look inside my cell and see that I'm right there! We ain't got no doors!"
The rapper also revealed that he read a variety of biographies, on artists like Jimi Hendrix, Anthony Kiedis, Joan Jett, and Marvin Gaye…before turning his focus to the Bible:
"[Kiedis'] Scar Tissue was really good. I also read the Bible for the first time. It was deep! I liked the parts where some character was once this, but he ended up being that. Like he'd be dissing Jesus, and then he ends up being a saint. That was cool."
Finally, he opened up his worst month there, which happened to be his last, because he got stuck in solitary confinement for being caught with an iPod charger in his room. He also had a watch with an mp3 player on it, but was lucky enough to have another inmate pretend that it was his so Weezy wouldn't get in any more trouble.
"He was a solid n***a. Shout-out to Charles…Solitary was the worst. No TV. No radio. No commissary. Basically you're in there 23 hours a day."
Despite the light tone in which he talks about his time, we sense that the entire experience has really changed his outlook on quite a bit, and we're very interested to see if it manifests itself in the next material he produces.
Lil Wayne has been stewing on Rikers Island and unlike other celebs who have been thrown in prison, not much has been heard about the rapper behind bars.
That's why he decided to send a special letter to his fans and supporters via his blog. He even took the time out to
namedrop shout out to one other celebrity jailbird, Miz Lindsay Lohan. (Hey, why else would anyone care that he wrote a letter from jail?)
The letter reads:
Me, I’m good, figured I’d update my glorious fans again. Better sooner than later right? I’ll try to do this more frequently.
Well ain’t nothing going on in here but the time, which seems like it’s taking forever. I’m trying to make the most out of every second tho, mentally. There’s some pretty cool people in here. Even though this isn’t a cool place to be. I’ve learned plenty already and the best lesson is to not come back. Last night, I kicked ass in UNO! Anyway, that’s neither here nor there. Just thought I’d let y’all know. Gotta stay hydrated. Though it’s hot, I still work out. Now don’t be expecting me to look like Hercules when I get out, but I should be a little bulky. I guess. Anyways, please remember to always check for your name in the “thank yous”. I’m always reading letters and responding. Off the subject but her Chris, I think you should team up with Kobe! Go Lakers! Hey Lindsey, glad it’s over doll. I should have written her huh?Young Money, you’re the best I ever had. Look out for Nino 3, and I Am Not A Human Being. Coming soon. Mother, I love you. Nae, you’re my angel. Lil Tunechi Jr., you’re the man. Lil Kam, you’re the best heartbreaker. Lil Neal, you’re the littler meatball.
I love you all!"
LOL! We want to see Lil' Wayne come back and start up an intense UNO tournament with his crew.
How gansta would that be?!
