Green Day Doubted They Would Win Any VMAs -- Now They're Hall Of Famers

Also, they weren't that stoked on Bruce Springsteen.

Green Day was pretty confident in 1994 that they weren't going to be taking home any VMAs (and they were right -- not that they don't have their share now). Twenty-plus years later, however, and they're getting honored with a pretty hefty accolade: an induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

In honor of their new status as LEGENDS, MTV News dug up some fancy vintage footage from the Video Music Awards. In it, Billie Joe Armstrong proves that dudes in bands never really change as he talks about being on TV ("I don't really like cameras in my face that much"), whether he's looking forward to seeing fellow performers Bruce Springsteen and the Rolling Stones rock out ("Nah, not really") and his thoughts on music videos ("I never really realized how many zits I actually have").

Check out that chunk of vintage gold above.
