    It took me the whole afternoon session to realise what they were saying though, i was in the boring members stand.

    That could just be because we were stood on the right hand embankment launching empty bottles at the sad emo kids, might have hit one of them, hence the tears.

    Seriously though, amazing gig. They actually changed their set list for the first time in years! (not much though, could still predict the next song half the time)

    As for them just jumping on the we hate bush bandwagon.... There music has always had to some extent a social commentary. Current issue is Bush, so he's bound to figure. Ok so there not usually political, but y'know, all of a sudden politics has become a major issue in America, more so than it was during the 80's and 90's, hence why its crept in. Its the same for many other punk bands, especially the likes of NoFX, Dropkick Murphy's.... Punks always had a fair share of political messages, and people like Green Day grew up listening to them, and wanting to emulate them, so why call them when they do pick up on an issue they care about? The fact that its become hugely successfull isnt anything against them, infact its just proof that they arnt just jumping on a bandwagon, given they risked their behinds to make the album, which they thought was going to flop badly

    Bearing in mind American Idiot was released in the last 18 months or so, how is it years since they changed it?

    yeah fair enough they chucked American Idiot in at the start of the set back in 2004, then preceded with the same set as usual.

    Anyone who's seen Green Day more than once before that Milton Keynes gig will vouch that the setlist was pretty much the same each time. Same order, everything. Only at Milton Keynes did they change it (purely because it was to be released live.... even on the tour in the January before they hadnt included more than 2 songs off American Idiot)

    Agreed. Greenday used to be good though.

    I wouldn't say they've sold out. They've just jumped the shark in my opinion. Still, their music means something to some people, so I can't discredit it as good. It's just not good in my opinion. It's amazing that what is (IMO) their weakest stuff has won them the most recognition, awards and album sales. Last year some called them the biggest rock band in the world, which was not far off the truth, if only totally undeserved.

I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    I'll vote for The Smith's The Queen Is Dead.

    So I broke into the palace
    With a sponge and a rusty spanner
    She said "Hey, I know you and you cannot sing"
    I said "That's nothing you should hear me play piano"

    Green day aren't punk in the slightest, comparing them to NoFX is like comparing Led Zeppelin to Good Charlotte
