Green Day’s New Rock Documentary; Exclusive Behind-The-Scenes Photos

Eleven years ago, Green Day made the most important album of their career, ‘American Idiot.’ A concept album and rock opera following anti-hero Jesus of Suburbia, it marked their graduation from scrappy punk trio to bold, rock anarchists of the highest theatrical order.

Filming them every step of the way was director John Roecker. His footage was subsequently squirreled away for years but thanks to new documentary film Heart Like A Hand Grenade it’s finally seeing the light of day bringing with it a fresh insight into the world of Billie Joe Armstrong, Mike Dirnt and Tre Cool as they set about making their ambitious seventh album.

Ahead of the film’s release on November 13, here are six exclusive behind the scenes pictures from the rock doc.
