I went in there! It was really cool http://www.greendaycommunity.org/Forum/p...

I also went into the one in San Francisco and I was wearing a Green Day t-shirt that day. This hobo came up to me and he was like "Awwwh, Green Day are so cool, maaan! I haven't seen those guys in so long!" I was like "Um, help?" http://www.greendaycommunity.org/Forum/p...

haha, he sounds like a hippie, "maaan". that's so funny :lol:

I've never heard him talk about Amoeba http://www.greendaycommunity.org/Forum/p... I absolutely love this place, just as Rasputin! You should check out Rasputin as well. It's like 2 blocks from Amoeba on Telegraph in Berkeley.

Well maybe saying that he's "always" talking about it is a bit of an overstatement, haha but I know I've heard him talk about it a couple times. I think he might've mentioned it in that AP article, or maybe I'm making that up, not entirely sure. Oh and I'm totally gonna check out Rasputin, sounds awesome.

I went to Berkeley last August for a exchange too!!! and my host family drove me to a green day concert even to Billie Joe's house hahaha
you missed atomic garden, if you mean adeline street shop it's close!
it was the best experience of my life, you'll have the time of your life :)

Did you take pictures? I took one and then showed it around saying "Here!! Look! This is Tight Wad Hill!!" http://www.greendaycommunity.org/Forum/p... It just looks like every other hill though lol But it's still special when you're there and know this place has been mentioned in a song.

Good one! I got the address too (it's actually printed in a GD book haha).

I love that one, too! Well, their all pretty similar but yeah :D I can't believe they have only 2 Rasputin shops in the whole country!! It's like the best record store ever along with Amoeba. And even Amoeba has only three stores in the country!

Woooooooooaaaaaaaaaaawwwww thank you all!

I'm working right now but I'll most definately check all your suggestions! And shot Anja an pm =)

just wondering: did you send one? because I didn't get any.

I'm visiting some colleges in California this summer, and I plan to do a little Green Day sightseeing as well. I think most of the prominent places have been mentioned, but paying a visit to Amoeba Records might be fun. Billie's always talking about that place, and well....records are fun http://www.greendaycommunity.org/Forum/p...

my cousin works there :thumbsup:

also I don't know if anyone mentioned this but you could go to Adeline Street, which runs through Oakland and Berk.

oh and East 12th Street!

When I Come Around was filmed in SF, and the scene where they are in a train station is Powell Bart station.

Yep that's the place where the phone is.
But I had a hard time finding it because it's well... Not hidden, but in a part of the station that is not really where you are walking all the time. It's hard to explain but I found it when I was not exactly looking for it :

For your trip to Emeryville, you're better off taking a bus (57 stops right by Hollis Street) or EMERY-GO-ROUND which is like a local bus that takes you everywhere in Emeryville for free.

Same for Gilman, the bus station is closer than any BART station. I forgot what bus I took there but I will go look and let you know.

The rest I will let you know via PM :ninja:

Adeline Street Shop - there's no shop anymore as far as I know. You can visit Adeline Street though although there's nothing really exciting there :lol:

Rodeo is up north, it's easy to get there but it's a boring town. You can combine your trip to Christie Road and Rodeo though because there are tracks near Rodeo. Your only problem might be that there is no BART going to Rodeo.

Oh, and why East 12th Street? Because it's mentioned in "Homecoming" :P

When are you going to do this trip?

I know there are a lot of people that like to/would like to go to all of the points of interest that have to do with Green Day's history, so I made a map pointing out everything I could think of. I have been to most of these places, the rest are places that the band has mentioned in songs, interviews, album credits, etc. I'm sure I'm missing some locations, so If anyone has anything they feel should be added, let me know.

I thought about Tight Wad Hill, but I don't know for sure if it's the one by UC Berkeley or one by their high school. Too many conflicting stories. If anyone knows for sure let me know.

That's really cool. I wish I had something to add, but I don't.

It's also neat to click through in Street View and see what the members of Green Day see very frequently. *sigh* :rolleyes:

Do they have to be in the US? If not, what about Wembley Stadium and the Milton Keynes Bowl?

This is a great idea :cool:
