Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong and Tré Cool played a set at the Tribeca Film Festival over the weekend. They teamed up with Joan Jett for a pretty awesome cover of “Bad Reputation.” They were celebrating the premiere of the new film, Geezer, which Billie Joe is starring in.Some videos from the performance can be found below.
I still remember the first time I heard American Idiot in full. It was my 14th birthday, and I’d been waiting for the better part of two months to finally give the album a spin. The record dropped on September 21, but as was the norm when I was young, broke, and trying to cut back on downloading, I often had to wait awhile to buy CDs or ask for them as gifts. Such was the case with Green Day’s first full-length album in four years, which I scrawled on my birthday list between other 2004 albums like Keane’s Hopes and Fears and Sister Hazel’s Lift.
