What are some of the coolest solo bits Green Day has played live? These can be solos from any instrument.

 

I'll start it off with this cool solo from Billie. Starts around 3:25:

Well when I listen to them live, I would say Let Yourself Go or Nuclear Family.

 

I love the solo in 99 Revolutions (demo) though. Much better than the origianl tbh

One that I can think of right now is American Idiot from MTV World Stage in 2009 (it's short but I really like it!). Oh! And Good Riddance from Awesome As Fuck, I love it too ♥

 

Since you want us to post the videos, then :D

To be fair solos aren't particularly one of their strengths. Billie just is....kinda average at it XD. Not that I mind, they have many other strengts to compemsate that.
But I've never heard any right amazing solo by them. As fat as they go as instrumentalists, I still praise solely Mike.

This version of Knowledge. I've never seen a video of it anywhere, so audio only will have to do. Made all the more impressive by the fact Billie is playing it behind his head.
