Lou Reed, Green Day, Joan Jett Among Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame 2015 Inductees

The Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame just announced this year's class of inductees, and it's mostly a surprising group in how unsurprising it is. There are certainly worthy artists going in this year. Lou Reed, already an inductee thanks to the Velvet Underground, is now heading in as a solo artist. Green Day are… More »

Nine Inch Nails, The Smiths, Green Day Among Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame 2015 Nominees

Once a year, around this time, the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame announces a whole new class of inductees who might be inducted into the Hall. Every year, we get one or two nominees who are eligible for the first time, since the Hall only inducts artists 25 years after their first record came… More »

Watch James Hetfield, Billie Joe Armstrong, & Joe Satriani Mash Up Bob Seger & Green Day At Acoustic-4-A-Cure

Earlier this week, Metallica did a sublimely weird four-song acoustic set 10th Annual MusiCares MAP Fund Benefit Concert, and last night, the band's frontman, James Hetfield, did another unplugged performance for charity, this time at the Acoustic-4-A-Cure benefit. Papa Het played four songs, two Metallica ballads ("Nothing Else Matters" and "Until It Sleeps"), the… More »

The Replacements Played Another Festival Set With Billie Joe Armstrong

Last month, during the second Coachella weekend, Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong joined the reunited Replacements onstage. This past weekend, at Atlanta's Shaky Knees festival, it happened again. So: Is this going to be a regular thing now? Is Armstrong our new Bob Stinson? Because, if so, that's pretty weird. Watch video of… More »

Dookie Turns 20

In May 1994, the former Dead Kennedys frontman Jello Biafra walked into the DIY Berkeley punk venue 924 Gilman Street, and he didn't walk out again. While Biafra was watching whatever band he was watching, he got into an argument with a gang of miscreants. That argument ended in an all-out beatdown, five or six… More »

Q&A: Billie Joe Armstrong & Norah Jones Unveil Duets LP + Hear “Long Time Gone”

What is weirder than thinking about Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong casually chilling out with indie-jazz super chanteuse Norah Jones? How about if the two of them get together and record an album of Everly Brothers covers? In an instance of something so weird it actually makes perfect sense, the two musicians recently convened… More »

Watch Green Day Play All Of Dookie In London

After the rock-opera bloat, the Broadway sojourn, the public tantrum and rehab stint, and the general public indifference to the three-albums-in-one-year stunt, it's probably not a bad idea for the former scabby punks in Green Day to remind people of why they liked the band in the first place. At a show at London's Brixto… More »

Watch Eels’ This Is 40 Outtake

I haven't seen Judd Apatow's new film, This Is 40, so I can't really comment on its flaws or virtues, but I will say that I'm impressed by the film's deep connection to music. That's essential to the plot, of course, as star Paul Rudd plays an independent label honcho, but Apatow doesn't skimp o… More »

Green Day – “Oh Love” Video

Here's the clip for Green Day's "Oh Love," in which we find the Green Day dudes performing the punchy piece of power pop to an audience of models. Indifferent at first, the crowd starts to feel it toward the end. Watch it below. More »

Green Day – “Kill The DJ”

One of the best-known and most-quoted Smiths songs is "Panic!" which closes with a coda of Morrissey just repeating, over and over again, "Hang the DJ." Green Day's new song, "Kill The DJ" -- the second single from their forthcoming ¡Uno! -- has a similar lyric: Billie Joe Armstrong just repeats, over and over again,… More »

Green Day – “Oh Love”

The first song from the first third of Green Day's forthcoming ¡Uno!/¡Dos!/¡Tres! trilogy debuted today. "Oh Love" sees the band scaling back the insufferable bombast of their last couple albums, and delivering pretty slick, effective power-pop. Of ¡Uno!, the album from which "Oh Love" was lifted, the band's bassist Mike Dirnt told Rolling Stone, "We… More »

20 Songs Named After The Bands That Played Them

Self-titled albums are one thing. But when a band names one of its songs after itself -- or, alternately, when a band names itself after one of its songs -- it's a pretty big deal. The song itself comes off looking something like a mission statement, an encapsulation of everything that the band means. Whe… More »

80 Other Bands With Official Sneakers

Last week the Animal Collective bros released an official mixtape for their new … sneakers. That is a thing now. Gotta keep fans on their toes (ouch, sorry). The shoes which you can see here benefit the Socorro island Conservation Fund, and they are cruelty free, except to your eyes. I did some research,… More »

Jimmy Fallon As The Boss, Elton John, Green Day @ The Emmys

Jimmy Fallon's done some impressive musical impressions on Late Night, so he brought out a few more for the Emmy Awards last night. He used Elton John, Boyz II Men, and Green Day to eulogize some of the big shows that ended this year (and recycled the 40oz pour out he used when saying… More »

Lollapalooza 2010 Saturday: Green Day Is For The Children

Even if you're not a fan (I'm not) you gotta give Green Day credit, first for introducing Lookout! to mall-punks back in the day, later for showcasing political awareness on an MTV-sized scale. Now middle-aged dads, with armfuls of Grammys and a Broadway pedigree, they commanded the biggest crowd at Lolla so far this weekend. More »

Weezer Interface With Kenny G, Chamillionaire, Sara Bareilles

Weezer aren't afraid of unlikely collaborations. If you recall, Rivers arrived at our Decomposed session with the Dartmouth Aires, a cowboy flautist, percussionists from Aklaline Trio and Yellowcard, and Jermaine Dupri. Now, a day after we saw Odette Yustman try to pull the guys apart in "(If You're Wondering If I Want YouMore »

New Green Day Video – “21 Guns”

"Did I ever tell you guys about how I was listening to the radio and they played the 'Wake Me Up When September Ends Hurricane Katrina Remix' and it was literally just the regular song but interspersed with interview clips of people talking about how their lives had become nightmares? That was the momentMore »
