  3. Yes, my bad! Sorry, wanted to update y'all ASAP because I know how lame it is when people say they'll be at a show and then you never get an update. It looks like in this case you have now all gotten a pretty good picture of how it went down. Started with Ricky Lake, then Jakob Danger, then SWMRS. After four or five songs, SWMRS brought Billie and Mike out and they played the setlist that's been posted (“Armatage Shanks” “Stuck With Me” “Scattered” “Waiting” “Murder City”). Then Mike left the stage and Bill Schneider came out for three PHGP songs. For all of these songs (GD & PHGP), Joey Armstrong was on drums and other members of SWMRS were backing the group. Jakob Danger was brought back by his dad to play guitar on "Murder City". Bill left after the PHGP songs and then Billie joined SWMRS for a cover of "I'm Not Proud of the USA" by The Mice. 1-2-3-4 Go! Records has a capacity of 49 people. It was a little over that limit but this was as intimate as it gets. The whole crowd was a mosh pit for every note of Green Day's set and subsequent songs. Someone even had a pretty decent crowd surf! Billie and Mike talked about the Raiders clinching, and Billie said last time the Raiders were in the Super Bowl, Joey was a baby. Everyone was in good spirits. It was, simply put, fucking awesome.

    "Troubled Times" Lyric Video

    Wow that's an incredible video. I'm honestly surprised that they were so overt in the political statement but fuck, I really love it. We were talking in the past about how this song would take on new meaning with Donald Trump getting elected and they just fucking went for it.

    "Troubled Times" Lyric Video

    Now that's what I'm talking about!!!!!!!! That was the best video by far. It is one of my favorite songs on the album, so I'm so glad it finally got a lyric video. It is timely and revealing. It isn't just a "I hate Trump" video but a video that shows why they do. I would call that a political statement done correctly. I'm so proud of them.

  17. End Of The World

    My first concert

    I could start this story with "I've been waiting a long time for this moment to come", or "It was great". Yeah, but it would be so usual. And boring, right? So, I wanna start with just one word that describes perfectly any aspect of how I'm feeling today: Fuck! Just fuck. Think about, it's perfect. Surprised, happy and crazy at the same time: me. Right now I'm leaving Milan, the sun is shining and everyone is so silent on the train. They don't know what happened yesterday: Yesterday I took the metro to Assago. Every stop, you could see the place getting emptier and emptier. Until the last stop, Assago. At that moment I knew that everyone in the room was going to the concert. I felt dizzy. I got off the metro. It was cold, but I wasn't supposed to care about that. After a very, long, tiring and agitated queue for seat places I got inside. It was a sort of liberation. I was afraid that my ticket was fake, even though I spent a lot of money on it. But when the scanner showed its bright green light, I was the happiest person in the world. At that moment, I was alone, inside the forum, in my seat. But I couldn't realize that. I remember I wrote something on GDC, about how happy I was. But I couldn't believe it, really. The Interrupters started their opening show. First song: good. Second song: ok. Third song: meh. Fourth song: I'm getting bored of that fucking guitar. It followed always the same rhythm. When they finished, my mind was exhausted. Then a long pause. And the Bunny. I was wearing a Ramones shirt, so I had to scream the Blitzkrieg Bop. I wasn't feeling good. Like I wasn't ready for that. But then the lights turned out. I hear that drums. Heavy, clear. In my mind there is only a word buzzing: JUMP. Know Your Enemy had started. I had dreamed that moment for 84 days, 12, weeks, 3 months, a season, 1/4 year. And it was just like I wanted. Pyro, energy, and my favorite band breathing my same air. Bang Bang and Revolution Radio were two song of "let yourself go". Jumping and screaming any single word of the lyrics. Still now, I'm surprised that I was the only one to do that in my sector. I felt a bit embarrassed but WHO CARED. The Holiday-Letterbomb-Boulevard Of Broken Dreams part was distinguished by a general excitement. Those songs were epic. Me trying to mimic Mike's bass solo in Holiday was maybe the funniest thing. I did the same with Longview. Actually one of the worst part of the show was Youngblood. It sounded GREAT, don't get me wrong. But as someone already said here on GDC the "fuck you I'm from Oakland" part ended up with an embarrassing silence from the fans. I gave my best but I think it wasn't enough. It was time to start the old-songs section. I expected Welcome To Paradise, ready to mimic another bass solo. But when BJ screamed "2000 Light Years Awaaaaay", I was a bit disappointed. No matter, I could always dance. Hitchin' a Ride, When I Come Around, Christie Road, Burnout. Nothing else to say. Same things, but this time I was literally out of breath. When Scattered started I couldn't contain myself. That song has an important meaning to me, since 2014. Still the only one of C1 to scream like there's no tomorrow. Then Minority, time to jump again. "Fuck'em all!" Are We The Waiting was really touching. Everyone sang it. I felt part of a team, a group of people that have something in common. My heart was in tears. But it was time to jump (agin, and again). St. Jimmy! BJ waited a minute before the epic "and don't fucking wear it out". Pyro. After Knowledge, my favorite part of the show: BASKET CASE/SHE. It sounded fucking great, and it's good to see that GD play it this way after 23 years. K-F-A-D. (Nothing else to say, it would be meaningless). A bunch of covers and the most important part of their concert (emotionally speaking): Still Breathing. A hand on my chest, the other up in the sky. My mouth is dry, but I'm still singing and jumping. And the epic closer: Forever Now. Is that enough? No. American Idiot. And JOS. This made me see how GD are famous and important in this dishonest pop world. And finally, BJ with its guitar, and us, coming back in our Ordinary World hoping we had the Time Of (our) Li(v)e(s). I immediately felt like everyone in the room was a friend of mine. Boys, girls, children, Old men, thinking about what I had just done. Again, in the metro. This time with something in my heart that I hadn't got four hours before. An "Insomniac" night. And now I'm here writing this (meaningless) essay. I promised you. The train is going fast. My heart too. I still can't realize it. A thing is sure: I'm a day older than yesterday. Hope you like it, even if with a lot of grammar mistakes. I'm too happy to care about it.

    How can one not be proud of a band who got famous for a song about jerking off, then 23 years later releases a video that will no doubt piss off the fucking soon to be President? Not to mention everything in between. So yeah, 12 year old me and 35 year old me are equally as proud.

  22. @letsdanceon I just came on here to talk about that. I feel like with most famous folks, there's always that question of whether or not they're actually nice and gracious with fans. I've always appreciated that the guys in Green Day are human—some days they don't feel like signing things or taking pictures—but the vast majority of the time, they are incredibly sweet to fans. They never make a big deal out of it, but the fact that there are so many pictures out there of them posing with fans is so lovely. And the fact that Billie went out of his way to say hi to her when he could've just went about his business is honestly one of the coolest things I've ever heard. I say "famous folks," but the guys never feel like celebrities to me because they involve us so much and have stayed so down to earth. They're so very fangirl-worthy.

    Changes to warning system and more!

    A couple weeks ago we asked you guys to provide feedback on the forum and the way things were going. Thanks to everyone who sent your feedback. We read them over and talked as a team about the changes we want to make going forward. A suggestion we saw multiple times was that the tour section was a bit unwieldy. We all agreed, and decided to move past tour dates from the RevRad tour into their own subforum. That way when you visit the tour section, you're greeted by the next show that's coming up. We've also decided to change the warning system so that "verbal warns" are now an actual warning point. This will help avoid situations where someone posts something after a warning is given and not knowing about it, and will also help make it clear when a mod is asking a user to stop doing something. These changes are outlined below. Each warning point is active on your profile for 15 days. If you get another warning within that period, your warning point will go up by 1 and include further restrictions each time until you're banned. 1st Warning: No suspension. No restrictions on posting. 2nd Warning: 1 day suspension. Restricted to 10 posts per day. 3rd Warning: 2 day suspension. Restricted to 10 posts per day. 4th Warning: 3 day suspension. Restricted to 10 posts per day. 5th Warning: Banned. When you're warned you'll get a notification with the reason and have to acknowledge it before you can post again. Upon returning from each suspension, there will still be a 10 posts/day limit for 15 days. While a user has a warning point they will not have access to “Clubs”. Duplicate accounts created to get around a suspension will result in another warning point. Thanks again to those of you who sent in your feedback. If you have suggestions or concerns, please reach out to us so we can help find a solution.

  28. I have very bad teeth, just like Billie. I have alot of crowns, root canals, etc. So, coming from experience, I can tell you how uncomfortable it is to have a chipped tooth or anything wrong in your mouth. It really affects how you feel overall, not just appearance but health wise and convenience wise. You have to learn to chew differently, you have to eat different foods, you even need to be careful the way you brush. So give Billie a break, getting his teeth fixed isn't really just for appearance.

  29. We've made some new Rage and Love wristbands. They're now one single wristband, half red, half black, with "rage" and "love" engraved in white. We got them in stock and we'll start shipping them out tomorrow. I'm very excited about these since this is what I wanted to do originally, but the company we used at the time couldn't make them (that's why we ended up selling a pair before). Check them out, and order yours on GDA (for mobile users, I finally got the GDA merch section working on mobile). http://www.greendayauthority.com/merch/item/112/

    I've already said this on a youtube comment, like the whiny little prick I am but... holy shit. If just some of those who say that Green Day are "trying too hard to be relevant and they should act their age" would have a fucking clue of what they're babbling about, they would know that Revolution Radio is a "nostalgic" album that sees the band reflecting on their past to judge their present rather than just "3 old guys trying 2 be cool and edgy". Seriously, I cannot believe some of the shit that comes out of some people's mouth.

  39. This is Lincoln's Dad. He's very happy with all the comments posted. We just drove from Boston to Upstate NY for Christmas and I was reading him the comments while we drove. He really is only seven. His birthday was at the end of August. He asked for a guitar for Christmas last year and we got him a crappy acoustic guitar. He never played with it and told me he wanted an electric, so at the end of February, I bought him a Square Mini Strat. It took us a few weeks after that to find somebody willing to teach him because nobody seems to want to teach a (then) six year old. We finally found somebody willing and started taking weekly lessons for 30 minutes because we didn't know if he could focus for longer. The first couple of weeks were brutal. We had to beg him to practice for even 15 minutes. Once he learned his first song, Highway to Hell, he was hooked. We never had to ask him to practice again. He was playing his guitar at least two hours a day or more. During the summer while his sisters and friends were all in the pool, he was inside playing guitar, probably playing over four hours a day during the summer. Now that school is back in session, he usually has a guitar in his hand from around 7am until the bus comes at 8:15 and as soon as he's home, he's back at it. He plays full size electric guitars now, but his acoustic is a smaller size. He begged me to make him a YouTube channel a few months ago. He has a few videos on there. We don't spend a lot of time on the videos, as most of them just happen if I walk in and he's practicing. He is usually singing while practicing. There's also a video of American Idiot on his channel, but he messes up the solo a bit. I didn't even know he could play it when we made that one. I think he just learned it the day before. He knows quite a few Green Day songs and will get to see them in March. A couple of his other favorite bands are Descendents (who he has seen twice) and Blink-182 (who he saw on his birthday in August). The song "She's My Ex" by All, he can play Guitar, Bass and Drums. I've been saying since August we will do a video with him playing all the parts, but it hasn't happened yet. Maybe soon... Anyway, sorry for the long post and thanks for watching his video. He's really happy.

  45. There's so many better choices for singles/music videos though. RR is a fine song but it's too generic. They need a song like Troubled Times or Say Goodbye. I know if I heard one of those songs on the radio and I didn't know who GD was, that'd get me saying "Wow! I need to hear more music from this band". RevRad would be forgettable in comparison. I have nothing against that song, I just don't think it'll do anything as a single i just hope that they don't make Ordinary World a single. That would suck
