20 Years since Woodstock '94

Just thought that I'd bring to everyone's attention that tomorrow it is 20 years since Woodstock 1994 (Mudstock) arguably the best Green Day performance ever.

-

I've re-rendered this video to as HD as possible, so I will switch out that link with my one when it's uploaded, but there you go!

August 14th 1994

Ok so weird that you just posted this, because I'm listening to audio from it as we speak... If I could go back in time I'd be there in a heartbeat!

I was preparing for my wedding in October of that year. I know I saw some of my extended family on the live feed but have no idea if they saw Green Day or not. Will have to ask.

Easily their most important gig in their early career. I'll have to watch it - I haven't seen it in years.

He was mistaken by a security guard as a fan who'd ran on stage, the security guard tackled him and Mike hit a monitor and his two front teeth came out.

You can see him get speared by security at 34:09 in the video in the OP.

There's no possible way to "re-render" a video sourced from a VHS tape into an HD-quality video. Attempting to try to would probably fuck up the picture quality completely.

I remember watching this on TV when I was a kid. I looked forward to it for quite a while and it was the closest I could get to actually seeing them live. I also loved how MTV would show individual songs from the performance as music videos at the time.

I couldn't think of another way to describe it. I just enhanced colour etc... the video, even for 90s VHS is a bit shit, so it could've sued some tidying up. :)

I love their style too. I just love this blue hairstyle Billie had and the green hair Tre had. And the xxl shirt is just so simple but looks so great on them. And Mike was just so awesome.

Five Great Woodstock '94 Performances

2. Green Day

“What is this free-hippie-love shit? How are you doing, all you rich mother fuckers?” This statement, which he said right before his band started its set, earns Green Day bassist Mike Dirnt the award for most-clever smart ass. (And also the award for making me spit beer on my computer in laughter, since, prior to writing this, I forgot he said it.) Nineteen ninety-four was the year for Green Day. It released Dookie. It broke into the mainstream. It was in prime form live. And its members got into a literal mud-slinging competition with the crowd at Woodstock ’94.
