In a humble act of betterment, Dirnt studied under a San Francisco Bay Area musician who taught him music theory, which further sparked his drive to make Green Day’s best album yet. Shedding the rock-opera theatrics and dramatic orchestration of their albums of the 2000s, Dirnt, alongside frontman Billie Joe Armstrong and drummer Tré Cool, took it back to their punk-rock roots as a trio and effectively created the band’s best album since— dare we say it—1994’s showcases Dirnt’s signature, rabid-picking tone, which holds up the foundation whether he’s riff doubling, chugging along with Cool’s manic kick, or stepping out into the forefront with his speedy counter-melodies.
