Vince Staples Gets Billie Joe Armstrong's Seal of Approval for Green Day-Inspired 'FM!' Album Cover
Billie Joe Armstrong took notice of Vince Staples' Green Day-inspired album art, and he approves. Staples released his third album FM! last week, and the album artwork bears a striking similarity to the artwork of Green Day's breakout 1994 album, Dookie.
The FM! cover, which includes the album name rising out of the waves over a festive beach, is a riff on the word-explosion-over-partiers scene of the Dookie art. Both album covers appear to have been drawn with colored crayons.
Armstrong posted an Instagram photo of the FM! cover with the caption "I love this." Check it out here:
