    Default Green Day

    Going to their show tomorrow night. Just curious as to how long their show is? Anyone here have any recordings fron this current tour? If so, what's the length? Looking at maybe recording it.

    Thanks!

    i went to their show at molson park in barrie back in august. im not a green day fan, but im not gonna lie... this was a great show, very entertaining. And me being a huge green day fan back in elementary school really helped, they played alot of old stuff. they cover WE ARE THE CHAMPIONS! its wicked. The show there was around 2 hours long, maybe a bit longer.

    review: B (89%)

    A high quality audience recording (no hissing or "tinny" sound), from the Insomniac-era. This in itself makes it a treasure because there are less bootlegs from this era than any other (even the Lookout! era). Moonraker chose to split the "Paper Lanterns medley" into 4 tracks, which is interesting. "Jaded" is also played all by itself, which means even Green Day got tired of "Brainstew" (the disc isn't even an hour long and does not sound edited at all). A pretty average show; Billie asks the crowd how to say "fuck you" in Swedish and "declares martial law" so that nobody gets hurt in the pit. He also encourages the crowd to spit on some cameras in the front before "Stuck With Me" (this song was taped for the 1995 MTV Video Music Awards). The only problems with the show are in some songs, like "Welcome To Paradise" and "Chump", Billie's voice is drowned out by the instruments; it sounds like the taper shifts positions once or twice. The liner booklet has the lyrics to "Stuck With Me" (which was a single when this was released), some familiar photos, and a complete European tour listing.

    Live tracks from this show are also available in soundboard quality on the Japanese EP Foot In Mouth. Reprise has this one in their vaults...

    Yikes. Six replies in this thread. Well, it's a Van Halen forum.

    Ya know, me being an old geezer, it's strange to admit this, but I've really gotten into these Green Day guys this last six months.

    It's hard enough, near impossible, for Olde Worlde folk like me to discover new brands in this day and age, or even explore catalogues that have been around a while that you never bothered with 'cause you generalized them from hearsay to yet another young copycat band emulating one of the pioneers (i.e., when I first started noticing Green Day's increase in popularity, I'm like "Yeah, great, Oakland boys trying to reinvent a 90s/post-Millenium pop punk scene." Turns out they manage pretty well in mixing a little Clash, a little Ramones, a little the Damned, the tiniest dash of the Pistols, a little Kinks even. It probably helps that I'm a fan of power trios (the Police and Rush being my 2nd and 3rd fave bands; technically VH could be a power trio if one disregards the lead singer toilet paper roll ).

    So about half a year ago, sick to death of my entire CD collection, I said fuck it, pick up something the kids are listening to.

    So I tried a little Jet.

    A little bit more of Buckcherry.

    Then I picked up the Grammy winning American Idiot. Okay, I can see why it won, it's catchy, hard enough to warrant my attention with tracks like the title track, Holiday, Jesus of Suburbia. Boulevard of Broken Dreams not a bad tune either. Not bad, it's no Sex Pistols, but who is, plus I don't mind my limited tastes for punk being a little less harsh than TSOL punk metal, LOL.

    So I pick up the rest of their catalogue, Slappy Hours, Dookie, Insomniac, Shenanigans, Warning, Kerplunk. Downloaded the two new tracks off their greatest hits. Skipped their live LP Bullet in a Bible, hate live albums generally, but given their limited catalogue, may have to get it sometime.

    I gotta say, I do like 'em. It's nice to finally come upon a 'newer' band outside the classic rock genre of the 60s, 70s, and 80s that I actually can listen to. 'Idiot' is a good album, fairly commercial, but a handful of pretty well crafted songs. Some of their earlier stuff off Slappy Hours and Kerplunk runs the risk of songs sounding a lot the same, much like a lot of raw early punk or latter day AC/DC. Dookie's overrated for its popularity, IMO, but Insomniac's pretty good. I think far and away their best work is Warning, and the B-Side/rarity compilation Shenanigans. 'Misery' is the catchiest, kitschiest tune I've heard in twenty years.

    Diggin' Green Day, long story short. Oops, too late.

    I'd see these guys in a heartbeat if they were on tour, assuming I'd get over the real possibility I'd be the oldest fool in the arena and the kids might eat me or something.

    Jesus of Suburbia is one of my favorite "new" songs of the last 5 years or so. I always liked "Hitchin a Ride" and "Redundant" on Nimrod.

    I saw them live not long after "dookie" which would have been 13-14 years ago. Even then, I felt kind of like the oldest guy in the room. I think their fan base has extended somewhat after AI, though.

    More than likely, I just imagined that it carried on well into 2005.

    Old dogs CAN learn new tricks. I've been aware of GD but never really gave them a chance until my daughter got into American Idiot a couple of years ago. We have a cool thing going where I let her pick and choose from my CD collection and she turns me on to stuff she likes. Thanks to her, I have My Chemical Romance, All American Rejects, Paramour, and Green Day in my Ipod. Can't say I dig it all but there's some good stuff to be had.

    Kewl.

    Yeah, definitely want to check 'em out live, I also heard they smoke in concert. Now that I'm versed in their catalogue, I could actually enjoy it.

    I think since Idiot went so mainstream, they're going to have a hard time topping it, in terms of critical praise. Their next album should be a monster commercially, I'm sure.
