'course, there are some high school bands that do nothing but cover Green Day. It doesn't take much to learn the American Idiot
singles, really. Because they hadn't heard of the band until that album came out (much like The Who and Tommy
in a way.
) . . .
I guess Green Day was trying to say something with American Idiot
-- I haven't sat down and listened to the whole thing, just parts of the CD, but... the kids covering it generally have no idea what htey meant. And it's lame to cover "punk" if you don't get it. Like that. Yeah. Shutting up now.
PS: September's way over, someone should seriously wake them up now.
