Add this to our list of things we wish would actually happen.
A deleted scene from director Judd Apatow's This Is 40 just hit YouTube, and we have to ask: Wow, how did this one get cut? It shows Green Day's Billie Joe Armstrong pitching one of the film's main characters, Paul Rudd, who plays a record label owner named Pete, on a new side-project. Armstrong describes its sound as "[taking] Norwegian death metal . . . and mixing it with, like, Belle & Sebastian." Just imagine that.
It's "music that you can cry to but also maybe burn a church down at the same time," he explains. "Is there a market for that?" asks Pete. "Probably not," says Armstrong. "I kinda want it to sound like two different radio stations going off at the same time in a white supremacist's car... I wanted to create violence."
The super-successful rocker then explains why he's coming to Pete's label for the project: "My biggest frustration about my career is that I actually sell too many records and I'm trying to change that, and that's why I want to work with you."
Again: WHY WAS THIS CLIP CUT FROM THE MOVIE, JUDD!?!?!?
