Green Day's Billie Joe Armstrong has spoken with Rolling Stone; in the interview he defined the band's forthcoming trilogy of albums "a crazy idea that happens to be working really well". He also told that "Â¡Uno! Â¡Dos! Â¡TrÃ©!" will be "power pop" albums. He said of the band's fresh musical direction: "We wanted something punchier, more power pop â€“ somewhere between AC/DC and the early Beatles. According to Billie Joe, the approach was different, for this new work: "The last two records were studio albums. This one â€“ we started rehearsing every day, constructing these songs together. It felt like we were all in a room jamming â€“ everyone in the mix, throwing out ideas. If you listen to it, it feels grand. But it also feels like a garage band".
He also added that the song "Kill The DJ" on "Â¡Uno!" is a "dance" song, influenced by The Clash's "Sandinista!", Ian Dury's 'Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll' and the Tom Tom Club's "Genius of Love".
