  1. Thanks to Arica Pelino for her footage and Shayne Stacy for digitizing this classic material. See the caption in the video for more info. This is just a teaser. Arica gave Shayne hours and hours of videotapes of East Bay bands including lots of never before seen Green Day material from her personal collection. With permission she is now sharing her stuff with fans for the first time! I’m starting this thread and will add to it as more stuff gets uploaded. In the meantime enjoy this small backstage clip from the Phoenix Theatre in 1991 and subscribe to Shayne’s channel.

  6. I'm giving away 6x4 prints from the Coverups and Longshot shows I've photographed because they're cheap and it's Ramadan. If you want some, send me a message letting me know which ones (eg. "C6, LS15") by 7 April. You'll also need to send me your name and address. Choose as many as you want – I do actually need to print at least 500 to get the best price. It doesn't matter if you already have some of my prints. They're great, so why not get more? If you want a bigger print, you're very welcome to ask, but I will have to ask you to pay for the print and postage. This is the price list: https://www.tescophoto.com/photo-prints Otherwise, I'm not expecting any payment, but if you really, really want to, you can donate the cost of your prints and postage to charity or buy me a coffee. And if you're not already following GDA on Instagram and Tumblr, go and do it.

  13. AI and Dookie (plus Minority like they've been doing) give me all the "hits" I need. Now, I can see someone arguing that they don't want to hear albums in full because they want room in the set for more deep tracks like they tend to do at small shows, but to get to hear all of Saviors, plus deep tracks off of American Idiot, would satisfy me completely. The last argument I would expect to hear from a fan is that they didn't play enough "hits". They've played the hits enough times they don't ever need to play them again.

  14. This feels too fangirly to say in the Instagram thread, but the way Billie looks at Jakob is so cute I can't not post it 🥹

  15. Hoarding is a strong word. She’s not a collector, these are her personal memories. It’s really generous of her to want to share everything now, she by no means had to. It’s been in storage for years and took a long time to go through and digitize.

  16. I've started scheduling stories on the GDA Instagram that are throwbacks to gigs played on that day however many years ago. If I'm going to all that effort, I might as well post this stuff here as well. However! I'm only focusing on gigs (not album releases or anything) and I'm very likely to forget to post here anyway, so if you remember anything that happened on a certain day years ago (or if you feel like copy/pasting from the GDA Instagram), please contribute! Even stuff like music video releases and chart positions on certain days would be interesting to look back on. So, on this day (16 April) 19 years ago (2005), Green Day played in Orlando, FL. 11 years ago (2013), they played the Greek Theatre in Berkeley. And 9 years ago (2015), they played the House of Blues in Cleveland before their Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame induction. Yes, I did get the year wrong on Instagram. Enjoy looking back at what our favourite band have been up to!

  20. 1981 does have more streams that the other non-singles though, probably just because it's the first non-single you hear on the album and maybe the fact that it was the first song we heard for the album (live) You can look for the streams each Green Day song and album is getting here Songs - https://kworb.net/spotify/artist/7oPftvlwr6VrsViSDV7fJY_songs.html Albums - https://kworb.net/spotify/artist/7oPftvlwr6VrsViSDV7fJY_albums.html There's a lot of interesting things to take from these figures. Saviors (the album) is getting 296k daily streams now, less daily streams than AI/Dookie/Nimrod/21CB/Insomniac but still much more than the last few studio albums, though in the coming months/years, that figure will continue to fall. I think Saviors will continue to perform better than FOAM and the trilogy in terms of streaming however. Revolution Radio has a lot of total streams, being their 5th most streamed studio album, but is gaining much less streams than all their studio albums from 1994-2009. Father of All has more streams than Dos & Tré but less than Uno. I wouldn't be surprised if Dos starts gaining streams at a faster rate than FOAM at some point. Stray Heart is gaining daily streams faster than any other trilogy song, even more than Oh Love which is the hit of that era and has the most total streams. Considering Oh Love can be heard on both Uno and God's Favorite Band, this is surprising. Last Night on Earth is gaining a lot of streams, currently no. 12 in terms of daily streams, even though it was never released as a single.

  21. Sorry but the speculation should start when GD confirms a new album or being in a studio, IMO. No offense.

  27. Ah, legendary Not So Silent Night 2011 performance where they were last minute substitute and had to perform as 3-piece. Great show with funny improvisations everywhere (American Idiot solo) and also last time Billie played guitar during Jaded IIRC. Anyways, man was 39 during that night and off from tour. He is 52 now and about to hit the road once again with the most demanding setlist they've done in years. Getting older sucks, but I am so ridiculously happy to see them still perform after all these years. Sure, they might not jump around like they used to and some songs are slowed down and Billie can't hit some notes as effortlessly as he did 15 years ago, but that's just life. Man can still sing, play guitar and pull off awesome show. I wont take that for granted. Billie's vocals peak was definitely in 2009-2011 period. I've seen some recent comments of how Billie's 2004 vocals were better, but I disagree with that. Just listen beginning of this video. Man could sing and he did it so well.

  28. Full show: From the description: Here is the first of many rare and previously uncirculated Green Day tapes from Arica Pelino's archive. Huge thanks to Arica for bringing them over and handing them off to me last month. I am going to let Arica introduce this one: "this show has only been released on audio format prior to this. This video is being released in its entirety for the first time and includes RARE after-show footage with: Lint/Tim Armstrong Marshall Stax (on stage) Damon O'Manic Joel Wing Kaz Hope Anna Armstrong Filmed by: Arica Pelino Opening Bands: Blatz, Jack Acid, Alter Ego, Grimple" Transfer by: Shayne Stacy Equipment used: Panasonic AG-1980 — Datavideo TBC1000 – Tevion USB Adapter — Virtualdub Enhanced in Adobe Premiere Elements/Neat Video (lighting/denoise)

  30. Shame about Billie! But the other two would work well on either end of a shelf/display as a pair. The one time I bought an album bundle was to get those candles and once I had them I just had to make a Green Day shrine . They're my favourite piece of GD merch I never spent a lot on merch just got all albums on CD and bought or (more often) got gifted some random things over the years

  31. I think a good idea for the Bobby Sox one would be to have, rather than Bobby Sox on the back, to have Girlfriend Boyfriend Best friend with a check box next to each one. I could see them being worn at Pride Parades.

  34. Those were some of the best times I remember keeping up with the tour thread here on GDC every night and watching Billie get back into his groove with each show. It was so sweet how nervous he was during the US leg. I always resonate the Trilogy era with those happy times. from my show during Oh Love

  37. The guy was presumptuous and incorrect saying "lol he's not getting emotional lol". Billie was cordial enough to say "it's fine" in his second comment. He doesn't need to apologise for calling out a stupid comment as stupid just because they guy apologised for making it. OMG I just watched Fancy Sauce from this and it was glorious! Really hope they'll play it on the tour

  43. Ok, I knew the song 1981 was about just letting loose like it’s 1981 and I can think of a million reasons why 1981 would be awesome for everyone but then thought of Billie and/or Green Day specifically. If this has been said already I apologize. No time to read all threads now a days. I can think of several but politically 1981 was the year before Reaganism. Personally to him, it was the end of his actual youth as his father died, probably along with a big part of him in September of 1982 (making 1981 his last care free year at the young age of 10.) He also met Mike the following year in 1982 and 1981, August 1st was also the year that MTV launched, eventually a foreshadow to their massive fame which Billie seems to enjoy). Just some random thoughts today. “She’s gonna bang her head like it’s 1981”. Get it. BTW, this was the first song MTV aired on that day. Very appropriate. And made in 1979…
