    Cool mash-up there. I'm so stoked they played Scattered though. That my absolute favorite Green Day deep-cut, and I saw them play it once in Atlanta in like ~2011ish? Something like that. Anyway, great song.

    That Nimrod deep-cut, though... Dying for a Green Day tour at this point.

    For what it's worth (admittedly very little), Green Day has been a four-piece since 2012.

    Doesn't he still have his illness?

    He's been recovering from tonsil cancer. It does raise the question as to how involved he'll be in the next album/tour cycle, though.

    He was in some press pictures for the trilogy. I just get the impression he doesn't like the spotlight. Also I believe he's recovered from cancer and just put out an awesome record with his side project, California.

    But regardless, I was there for this and it was bananas.

    Apparently they also played with Rhett Miller of Old 97s

    I'm still holding out hope for some new Network, Foxboro Hot Tubs or Pinhead Gunpowder at some point.
