You guys are all crazy. I don't care how much you dislike them, they are absolutely KILLER live. There's no political ranting between every song. They do everything they can to make it such an energetic and audience-interactive experience. And they played for three hours when I saw them in 09, when a band like them could easily wimp out and do 90 minutes.
I would actually say Green Day is the best live band I've ever seen. Yes, even more than Radiohead and MMJ. Just give them a chance (if they are at Roo).
Before that though, let me go grab my flame shield.

I'm not a Green day fan, but I kind of like his reaction in the clip. I don't think this would have any factor in Bonnaroo booking them and I don't blame him for being upset about his bands set being cut in half. It goes well with the punk image they are trying to regain. I've heard only positive things about their sets at the European festivals this year. I'd probably give their set a shot if they were on the farm.
