Green Day Bash Bush At End of Year Bash

Green Day Bash Bush At End of Year Bash

December 19 2005

Green Day finished 2005 in Melbourne, Australia on Saturday night before 37,000 fans by bashing US President Bush. Lead singer Billie Joe Armstrong sent “a big **** you to George W. Bush” while he strutted the stage draped in an Australian flag. The audience loved it.

Green Day have just had their best ever year off the back of their angriest ever album. The ‘American Idiot’ record has sold more than 10 million copies now worldwide and the American President should be thanked for the inspiration. “My name is Billie Joe Armstrong and I was sent to make George ****ing Bush’s life a ****ing nightmare” he screamed, again with full support of the fans.

Armstrong was relentless with the message. “No matter who we elect into office, don’t let them dictate your life. We are the leaders” he said off the back of “Minority”.

This was the Green Day at their best. The vitriolic performance with punctuated with songs from across their entire career dating back to the Operation Ivy cover ‘Knowledge’ which they recorded before the breakthrough album ‘Dookie’.

Armstrong also paid tribute to Australia’s The Living End who he said had sent him a demo tape during Green Day’s first Australian tour some ten years ago. The Living End’s Chris Cheney made two appearances at the show, first dressed up as a Bunny before Green Day hit the stage and later on guitar as they cover the Bobby Fuller 4 classic ‘I Fought The Law’.

Green Day setlist for Melbourne, Telstra Dome, Saturday. December 17.

My daughter has their American Idiot CD and after what you have just said Jakeyboy, I'm not sure I'm too happy with that.

Thank you! Miss PJ hates it and makes a fool of me for having it on my mp3 player.

There was an article in the paper saying that Green Day were really good and then towards the end of it they started to say that U2's concert will be better since it has sold out more.

1) U2 appeals to nearly all ages. Green Day is aimed at my age

2) U2 haven't been to Australia for ten years and Green Day came in March so most people would have seen the show then.

Because although I do believe that people should express their opinion, I don't agree with it being done in an angry way, and the way Greenday seem to display it reeks of hostility. Just MO.
