Throwing a hissy fit because you think you're a big deal isn't very punk rock.

Never saw a band of that height be on a time limit, in fact unless you are an opener I haven't saw any act on a time limit.
Fake or not I loved how he showed his a**.

Looks real to me. It was part of the iheartradio music festival, which was full of A-listers. I imagine they're pretty strict about keeping everything on time at an event like that.

Wasnt the story behind this that Usher went 25 mins over on his set and they cut Green Day's set short? Id be pissed too... I might not smash a perfectly good Les Paul Jr though...

Good for him. They have certainly paid their dues and and deserve a lot more respect than the likes of Usher or Beiber.

That was awesome! Anyone who's gigged and been pressured to wrap it up prematurely can relate. (I wouldn't smash my guitar though...)

Wow. Those Gibsons are sturdy. A Fender would have folded and caved on the first blow.

Looks like a viral pump to me. They cut huge actors off at the Acadamy Awards, and I've never seen like, Julia Roberts go berzerk and smash the stage mic or something. Green Day needed a publicity push, and here it is. He was probably watching all of the other acts get the one minute cue, and his mind went, "Hmmmmm. I could do something cool with this. Prove that were not a bunch of soft, aging geezers, but still angry and angsted."

I hope he switched to a different guitar before the last song started. Be a shame to bust a vintage over a real rage, much less a fake one. Anyway, good show. You just don't see enough of that anymore in R&R. Fake or real, I enjoyed it.

Yeah it looked over the top, but I doubt it was staged. Just over the top rock star ego.

Probably staged, if not, kinda hard to make a claim for cred when you're 40 and look like you've returned from your first trip to Hot Topic. New album is horrible, my once infinite respect for Green Day is slowly fading.

When I saw them in 2009 he went on a 10 minute tirade about how modern radio is nothing but **** before playing "Static Age" the irony was not lost on me.

???? - I would have thought that Static Age would have been a very appropriate song to follow a tirade about radio being ****. Unless this is a different version of Static Age we're talking about?
