A Backstage Conversation With Green Day

Green Day sat down with Rolling Stone:

Yeah. If you look at our career, there’s almost like before American Idiot and after American Idiot. Yeah, we play new stuff. We play stuff off American Idiot. It’s hard to explain from my perspective because sometimes I’ll just start saying to myself, “Look how unique this is. You’re able to play in front of 14,000 people and everyone is singing along. Everyone’s hands are in the air.” We play a song like “Holiday” and its like a flock of birds or something.

Chris Cheney & Phil Jamieson Will Star in the Aussie Run of ‘American Idiot’ Musical
