In a fairly quick turnaround, Green Day's management has reportedly denied Courtney Love's statement that the band was recording with Non Blond, Linda Perry. The band is apparently sticking with producer Rob Cavallo who has been with the band through their major label career.

After the massive commercial and critical success of American Idiot, anticipation for the band's next record is high. The band has not even confirmed whether it'll be another rock opera, however.

I propose that we start a rumour that the album will include nothing but covers of Elizabethan-era lute music. But no one would do that.
