Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong is hoping to convince the band to re-record their sixth studio album, Warning.

The pop-punk record was released in 2000 and had a more acoustic feel than their other albums. Although the album received some positive reviews, it is notoriously known as being one of their less popular musical creations.

Speaking with Rolling Stone, Armstrong has now revealed that he would love to go back and re-record Warning, which features the band’s iconic track “Minority.” This followed the pop-punk legend being asked to discuss 15 songs from across the band’s career.

“I’d like to go back and re-record that album [Warning],” Armstrong revealed. “I want to go back and just do everything more live, because I think ‘Minority’ live is a lot better than it came out on the album. But that’s just one of those things that you think about too much.

“I started getting into playing more acoustic guitar, and I really wanted to have more for ‘Warning’,” he recalled. “And there was also a lot of kind of bad pop-punk that was starting to happen, and I wanted to go against that genre. This felt like the next step.”

Green Day’s thirteenth album Father Of All Motherf*****s will be released on February 7.
