Green Day - '¡Tré!'

Green Day - '¡Tré!'

Second verse, same as the first; the same riff you’ll swear you heard 15 songs earlier; the same tics, the same tricks; the same final-chorus key change you could set your watch by; the same lingering disappointment you’ll feel at the end of...

Green Day – ‘¡Dos!’

Green Day – ‘¡Dos!’

It’s been a very 21st century breakdown. Recent events have elevated ‘¡Uno!’, ‘¡Dos!’ and ‘¡Tré!’ above their station as an ambitious but deeply flawed trilogy of albums and made something far more significant of them: an...

Green Day - '¡Uno!'

Green Day - '¡Uno!'

There are few stronger advocates of the format, but Green Day’s status as one of the last remaining ‘album’ bands is actually a pretty recent phenomenon. Before ‘American Idiot’, what the East Bay trio really excelled at was singles:...

Green Day - 'Oh Love'

I don’t know. You wait yonks for a new Green Day album, and then the pesky pop-punkers tell us they’re planning on releasing three in the space of a few short months (has this joke already been made? It must have been done, surely?) Anyway,...

Live Review: Green Day

Live Review: Green Day

It’s 10.03pm in London and 20,000 people are singing the melody to a Mozart Nocturne (seriously) for the third or fourth time tonight, expertly conducted by a short guy who can’t stop pinballing around the vast stage. At various points in the...

Album review: Green Day

Green Day : Milton Keynes Bowl, Sunday June 19

Green Day : Milton Keynes Bowl, Sunday June 19

At 8.50 in the evening, it’s worth having a look around the huge expanse of the National Bowl, Milton Keynes. The sun is falling, but the evil heat remains; ‘YMCA’ is being pumped from the PA system and wherever you look people are making...

Green Day  :  London Brixton Academy

Green Day : London Brixton Academy

Right, so we’ve already established that over the last year Green Day have turned out their best work, helped galvanise a generation and been rewarded with the plinth marked ‘World’s most important band’. Happy? Because to be honest, if...

Green Day : Boulevard Of Broken Dreams

Green Day : Boulevard Of Broken Dreams

OK, so thinking that Green Day’s loony emo-snot rock epic ‘American Idiot’ was gonna help dislodge Dubya from his presidential perch was a bit like expecting the next Selfish Cunt album to see Blair bushwhacked in 2005, but hey, like RP...
