Hey all! I wrote my newest article for HerCampus and it is all about Green Day! I would really appreciate it very much if you guys could check it out. If there are any errors in information, please let me know. @Todd luckily corrected a lot for me already. I got some of my info from sources that are not 100% reliable so if I could be corrected, it would be great. I also had a graduate student edit this, so I hope there are no grammatical issues.

Very cool! I really enjoyed reading it! Only thing I noticed was the date for the House of Blues show in the topic for standing up for their fans. It's 2014 instead of 2015. :) I love reading your articles! Keep up the great work, looking forward to seeing your next ones.

Love the article!  Really cool idea, and much better done than most of the '10 things you didn't know about Green Day' things online.

Couple of grammar points: 

  • Is 'off of' considered OK in American English?  In British English the correct way to say it is just 'off' or 'from' (which would be more appropriate in this case.  But it may be one of those things that is entirely acceptable in American English that I'm just not aware of.
  • I think you missed a word in 'Since they are my favourite band, I'm happy that the prices aren't ridiculous like they are (for example) Muse (my second favourite band).'  If you remove the first set of brackets/parentheses then the sentence doesn't make sense.  It should be 'Since they are my favourite band, I'm happy that the prices aren't ridiculous like they are for (for example) Muse (my second favourite band).'

The actual content (which is the bit that matters most) is awesome though.  It's interesting and informative, yet avoids being either niche and fangirly or generic and boring stating well known facts.  Really well done :)

Thank you so much, this is such a sweet comment!

For the first point, I'm honestly not sure. :( What do you think I should do? My editor didn't comment on that point so I hope it's okay.  For the second point, I totally agree with that and I am going to edit that in now!!! Thank you. :D <3 Much appreciated.

This is a really awesome article and I actually learned some new things for once! I'm so proud of you. :D

If I may add, you typed "Samian" and I thought the band was called "Samiam". 

Other than that, great job as always! I love your articles. <3
