Remember that tune pants on the ground? We might see a Green Day version of it soon after Bille joe Armstrong was kicked off a Southwest Airlines flight for sagging.
Armstrong aired his frustration in a Twitter message. "Just got kicked off a southwest flight because my pants sagged too low!" he wrote Thursday night. "What the fu)$(# No joke!"
The singer for the San Francisco Bay Area pop-punk band was boarding a plane from Oakland to Burbank, CA, when a flight attendant came up and said to pull up his pants. According to an ABC producer who was on the flight, Armstrong at first brushed off the request, saying, "Don't you have better things to worry about than that?" After the flight attendant reiterated her instruction and warned Armstrong he could be kicked off the plane, Armstrong reportedly said, "I'm just trying to get to my fucking seat." At that point, Armstrong and a traveling companion were given the boot.
Southwest Airlines quickly replied to Armstrong's Twitter complaint with its own message. "Very sorry for your experience tonight, someone from our Customer Relations Team will reach out to you to get more details," the company said.

And the most obvious nominee--- Foo fighters. Dave Grohl and Co. have crafted their heaviest album in years with Wasting Light, and live the quartet sound even heavier.
Foo Fighters At a Lollapalooza warm-up gig at Chicago's 1,150-capacity Metro, "Foo Fighters seemed hellbent on playing with unhinged abandon … like they had something to prove," we wrote. Watch Dave GROHL TALK ABOUT HIS FIRST ROCK CONCERT HERE:
"The Foos write super-sized rock music, the kind that still fills stadiums … and it's worth celebrating.
Death Cab ready to write Spin also breaking some news about Death cab: The Seattle indie vets have been touring virtually non-stop since the May release of their latest album, the keyboard-driven Codes and Keys, and while the band's heart-crushing live shows are sending fans into a tizzy (we're looking at you Toronto), DCFC are anxiously awaiting the finish line. "I would love to find myself making a new record [soon] rather than moving into our seventh straight month of tour," Gibbard tells SPIN. "I'd like to capitalize on feeling inspired to write rather than hobbling up onstage and jumping around for two hours."
