I started this thread because I was curious...How much do your parents or anyone else in your life know about Green Day?
My family knows I love them and I think they kind of figure I have a crush on Billie Joe because of all the posters I used to have on my walls (took them down to switch bedrooms but never bothered putting them back + a lot of them got wrinkled and wrecked).
They know that Green Day swears and they don't care. My mom knows about Billie's meltdown and rehab (they mentioned it on the news and she laughed at his Justin Bieber comment). She doesn't know about him dropping his pants on stage.
In fact, every time I watch Bullet in a Bible, I always do it alone because the awkwardness would be too much for me during the Hitchin A Ride part. That came out when I was 14 and I'm 20 now and I still don't want them to know about it. Same with Billie humping the camera all "you like that bitch?!"
When I got Awesome as Fuck last year, I had to watch it alone at first for this reason but there wasn't anything inappropriate in it.
There are certain songs I would never let my parents listen to: Like A Rat Does Cheese, Platypus, for example. Hell even the masturbation line in Longview is awkward enough.
I would have loved to see them live back when I was 14 but at the same time I'm glad I didn't because my parents (or an adult supervisor they knew and trusted) would have had to taken me and I don't know how they would react to the masturbation on stage. I think they might be amused by Billie mooning the crowd but beyond that...
I should add that my parents aren't all prudes. I've watched True Blood with them countless times, which is still very awkward.
