    Usher and Green Day both started in the late 1980s and broke out in 1994. So I

      This. I feel embarrassed for them.

        We're talking about Green Day on the internet, and we weren't talking about them yesterday. Mission accpmplished. I used to love the band, and while the fandom has waned, I'll still listen to their new stuff. I hope it's not like 21st Century Breakdown, which I didn't like.

          Seemed staged and disingenuous. Far to many poorly placed F words. I was starting to become a bit embarrassed for him when it seemed like he wouldn't be able to break that guitar. Was quite relieved when he got it on the 5th try.

            I agree with this^^^. When I saw it I was thinking how staged the whole thing looked. I have nothing against GD but their music is about as poppy as it gets, imo. They wear 'punky' costumes/clothes/makeup and sing about typical subjects. I honestly dont see much difference between them and Usher or Beiber.

              So he's out a guitar AND he looks like a dumbass in the press? Sounds like a lose-lose scenario to me.




              I doubt being out the guitar is a big deal. Cheaper than paying for promotion. And you really think all this bad press hurts a band like that? If anything, its put them in public view for the first time in a long time. Like I said, they just got put on the front page for the cost of a Les Paul Special - that's cheap advertising if you ask me.

                I honestly think it was a stunt to try to give Green Day some punk cred. Especially after their most recent album.




                Yeah, they haven't released a decent album since Nimrod, what was that like 97? Usher is still making platinum selling albums whether we like it or not. As someone earlier said, its an industry

                  AP is reporting that he's headed for rehab. And that their time was not cut by the festival organizers.

                            that clock looks like a countdown, thats why it says 1 minutes, meaning it probably said 5 minutes, 3 minutes etc;



                            he should have played Descendents Coffee mug. thats like 30 seconds of rocking harder than GD has in 20 years.

                              What an odd argument, considering that Green Day's last two studio albums (American Idiot and 21st Century Breakdown) have also gone platinum.

                                album sales do not necessarily equate to actual quality of said album.



                                i'd wager just one of those turds sold more than everything townes van zandt ever released.
