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!

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.

Okay thanks for making me feel old because I WAS there (I was 17) and it definitely was a memorable performance. The sound system completely sucked though and they really didn't sound that great (Billie actually admits this in a 1995 MTV interview with Kurt Loder) and it was, as you know, pouring down rain. What is not really thought of though is the amount of mud there really was. We can see that yeah it looked fun slipping and sliding all around, but the fact of the matter was that you couldn't walk without your feet sinking 6 inches into the mud, there were people everywhere. I mean EVERYWHERE. NO paths to walk, just squeezing through people. Where there weren't people there were tents. Yes there were areas for camping in the woods near the stages, but that quickly got filled and there was no enforcing where people could or could not set up tent. Toilets were overflowing, yes, I took a shit in the woods, food and drink was not only overpriced, but starting to become scarce, and there was no escape. No home to go to at the end of the night.

So, yeah, I'm incredibly happy to be part of history and I'm proud to say I was there, but believe me, you're a lot better off watching an old VHS copy of a copy of a copy of the 30 minute show rather than experiencing that weekend.

I write about this experience and more experiences in 20 years of Green Day shows in my book entitled "My Green Days: the story of a fan & a band" available on Amazon

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.

I've re-rendered this video to as HD as possible

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.

I just uploaded this. It's the longest and best version of the Woodstock performance you will ever find. The Longview intro isn't edited and it includes extra intro and outro banter.

I know this performance was When I Come Around's official live video, so I know that was played, but did they really play other songs from the set too?

I remember seeing some on 120 Minutes and probably some other shows as well, when I was a little kid I would sit in front of the TV for hours waiting to see Green Day. Even though I was very young, 1994/1995 was a great time to be a Green Day fan!

I first watched the whole performance when I was about 14 years old and I was so upset that I couldn't have been there. This happened a year before I was born and I'm so mad I couldn't be there. The pure energy and just the amount of fun you can see them having up on stage...probably one of their greatest shows ever.
