A recently published article from AlterNet has a small mention of Green Day along with other musicians who are talking about politics in their music. From the article:
To be sure, mainstream big bands like Green Day have released politically subversive records in the recent past that garnered huge attention and continue to play the radio. But none of them have resonated with the public to produce any kind of movement or social action that has moved American politics. In one song on Green Day's album, American Idiot, front man Billie Joe Armstrong lamented the lack of public resistance: "Where have all the riots gone?"

The rest of the article is mostly about Neil Young's new CD bashing President Bush. You can read the rest of that article here.

We have posted five of the entries we've gotten in so far for the Whatsername Contest. You can hear those entries here, and keep sending in your entries.

Oh yeah, for some FYI; Brain Stew is used in the new movie "Stick It" for a small clip. So if you go watch it, sing along like a fool. This info was added to the current projects page.
