This message from Green Day to their fans has all the feels

After playing their first show in over a year and being inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame, Green Day have once again proven themselves to be a band who treat their fans right. (See: Green Day being one of the only bands at the Rock Hall to stop and greet their fans first.)

The other day, Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong posted the following message to the band’s official Instagram account:

“dear you

I can’t express enough how much love is in my heart for all of you in our green day community.
for me to try to put it into words almost feels awkward. 
sometimes I don’t always like to use the word “fan”. I think I can speak on behalf of me mike and Tre when I call you family or community. Because you all truly grew up together with us and shared this journey together. 
this is more than an award. it’s the privilege to play music, write songs and follow this psychotic passion called rock n roll.

and We share this honor together. because honestly YOU ARE our rock n roll hall of fame. 
idiot nation forever

rage and love

Billie Joe”
