In July of 1994, when WFNX and the Phoenix started making inquires about the availability of bands for their free welcome-back-to-school concert at the Hatch Shell and Green Day’s name came up, no one could have predicted how quickly the Bay Area brats would rise to mega-popularity. August saw the band steal the show at Woodstock ’94 with a set that ended with a massive set-ending mud fight that was replayed on MTV ad nauseam over the next couple of weeks alongside the “Longview” and “Basket Case” videos. Dookie was certified platinum by the beginning of September, and on September 9, somewhere between 70,000 and 100,000 people showed up at the Esplanade. No one — not the MDC, the state police, the Wizard Security staff, or the Phoenix/FNX folks — was ready for such an enormous, mosh-happy mob or the snotty three-piece who coaxed the crowd to tear down the FNX balloon before plunging into the flower beds and tearing them up in front of the stage. The crowd broke through the barriers and the plug was pulled just 20 minutes into the set. More than 100 people were injured (24 shipped to local hospitals), 31 were arrested, and Green Day went on to become the most successful punk band of all time. As Wizard Security owner Jeff Freedman said at the time, “It was the band, the location, the audience — the total atmosphere. I don’t think it will ever be duplicated.”

WFNX Green Day Segment

by Jason Steeves Plus 2 weeks 3 days ago


Rough sample of what a typical We Want The Airwaves segment is going to be like.
This is the first pass at the Green Day segment for the movie. It's missing a lot of important voices and details, but I just wanted to give supporters of the movie an idea of what they can expect from the WWTA movie.
Still gathering images, interviews, etc.

OMG, the ending of the clip was EPIC.

And all that remained was a calculus textbook and someone's prosthetic limb. A concert well done, then.

That was quite an interesting sample to watch. It's interesting from the start and it builds up perfectly to the (as Mercury said) epic ending. I'm very interested to see the entire movie

Dang. I'm still laughing. "They played for half an hour, and then they were...GONE." :lol:

What's epic about the ending of the segment, and what Mercury quote? Not being sarcastic, just feel like I missed something.
