After revealing that it was easier waking up to the news in Europe, frontman Billie Joe Armstrong described how he found out about the result.
The Revolution Radio singer revealed: "I went to bed and everyone kinda thought the correct side was going to win.
"Then at 6am I wake up choking - like this is kinda gross, like when you inhale spit [...] I'm thinking 'oh my god why am I coughing?'
"And of course the first thing I do is think 'I'll check and see what happened'. So I go to my phone and I look and I have 50 messages. And I was like ' this is not good'. 'Cause usually I get four every day."
He added: "All my friends and family are freaked out because they just elected a fascist into the White House for the first time in American history."
