Green Day

Not a huge fan of Green Day as it goes, although I did like Boulevard of Broken Dreams, but I have to say their new video, Wake Me Up When September Ends, which premiered here on just about every channel here in the UK over the weekend, is powerful as hell. Featuring an all grown up Jamie Bell (Billy Elliot), it features a couple of young lovers where the boy decides to sign-up and go off to Iraq. Damn good song too...

And how the hell did they release their first album in 1994 ? The lead singer looks about fifteen even now...perhaps it's just 'cos the When I Come Around video is getting more airtime now than it did when it was released, and they WERE really young then.
