The 15 minutes show has Billie Joe and Norah discussing their favorite songs off the albums, how things were done and much more. Throughout the show they played a few of the album tracks, the original versions, and some of their favorite classics - this had to be been cut out due to copyright reasons.

A live version of only Green Day performing "The Saints Are Coming" live at New Orleans Arena in New Orleans on August 7th, 2009
The cover has only been performed three times with members of Green Day. The first being in New Orleans in 2006, the second time being later in 2006 with U2 and Billie on their last performance of their tour. This is the only time Green Day has played the song with U2 at all. The audio is taken from a video shot by ebbette
Stay The Night with drum intro remix
For those of you who have heard Stay The Night live, you'll know that they don't play the intro on just the guitar, they play it with drums as well. Idiotic Tendency on our forum
has used a section of the song to remix it and make it sound like how they play it live. If you've never heard the live version, you can listen to it here

This audio was recorded by forum member marioweezer with the quality being 4 out of 5 stars. The setlist features regular songs from the tour but also includes Dookie played in entirety.
Irving Plaza, 2004
This recording comes from an audience recording but the quality would be given 5 out of 5 stars. It contains a few rarities such as Stuck With Me, Dominated Love Slave, Whatsername (acoustic) and more.
This recording comes from an audience member though it is amazing quality, one of the best non-soundboard sounding recordings. The was apart of their warm up tour and features songs such Kill The DJ, Troublemaker, Angel Blue and many more.
"Highway 1" by The Foxboro Hot Tubs
This song was originally featured on the band's six-song E.P., released back on December 8th, 2007. When the album was released on April 22, 2008, "Highway 1" was not included, due to unknown reasons.
Reading Festival 2012
This footage was shot and aired by BBC so the quality is amazing. Unfortunately though, the whole show didn't get broadcasted and we only got Welcome To Paradise, Murder City, Oh Love, Basket Case and American Idiot.
"Hold On" (Alternate Mix)
The track comes from a promotional version of 'Warning' which has "Not Final Version" written on the cover. This promo hasn't been widely available, but once I got it I discovered that every song was the same, except for "Hold On," which has a different mix, including the harmonica at the start.
Good Riddance By American Idiot Musical Cast
The track was originally meant to be released on the 2010 cast album
but was replaced last minute with Green Day's unreleased track "When It's Time
" which is also featured in the musical. Good Riddance was still in the in the CD's booklet with credited musicians. About a year ago, the production company for the touring show released the song via Soundcloud.
Dean Gray - American Edit
The album was released in November 2005 and features a remix for every song as well as a dance remix of the Boulevard Of Broken Dreams remix. The songs are remixed with artists such as; Oasis, The Beatles, U2, Queen, Kayne West, and many more. In 2008 a deluxe version was released featuring remixes of Good Riddance (Time of Your Life), Basket Case, and an alternative remix of American Idiot though none of these are done by the original remix team. The download will also feature artwork for the CD.
Live at Milton Keynes (Day 1)
This recording is from the first day, 18th June 2005 at Milton Keynes
. On the same day the band performed, BBC aired a few of the tracks. which means this came from the soundboard and is amazing quality. Some of these tracks didn't make it on the release as it was mixed with day two as well as these recordings are mixed differently. The download only has 7 songs (American Idiot, Jesus of Suburbia, Holiday, Basket Case, She, Wake Me Up When September Ends and Boulevard of Broken Dreams) but the special thing about this is "She" was never featured on the Bullet In A Bible so enjoy one of the outtakes.
"99 Revolutions" Live From ONE
This recording is from their show at Unipol Arena in Casalecchio di Reno, Italy on June 6th. The recording was professionally shot therefore has both amazing sound and video as well as the fact that it was also released in 1080i HD. The video proves that this is a great way of opening the bands shows, getting the crowd all pumped up.
Live at Brixton Academy
This recording comes directly from the soundboard therefore is excellent quality. I wouldn't say it's a perfect recording though because it appears to just be a rough mix from the desk which have the vocals a bit drowned out by the instruments. This recording actually comes from a factory pressed bootleg called "Punk Academy" released on a small label called "Typhoon". An interesting fact about the bootleg is even though the track is labeled correctly in the download, on the actually bootleg, Jaded is labeled as "I'm A Loser".
Dookie Live in Serbia
This recording comes from the very first night they did this at Kalemegdan Park in Belgrade, Serbia on May 27, 2013. Lucky for us someone was there and was able to record the whole Dookie set and upload it to youtube so full credit goes to Vuk Jevdjenovic (GreenDayFanSerbia) on youtube for uploading this. The quality of this recording isn't the greatest but it's still very listenable and quite a rarity for being the first time they performed it live.
Download of The Week - The Foxboro Hot Tubs on Carson Daily
This video recording comes from 2009/06/03 - Last Call with Carson Daly TV Show, Burbank, California, USA.
While recording a set to have a song featured every night of the week, fans noticed Tre's drumkit from the Foxboro Hot Tubs was brought out. After playing 6 songs from the new album, the guys came out with Kevin Preston from Prima Donna. This recording only features the two songs which are "Stop Drop & Roll" and "Mother Mary". It gives people who have never seen them live before a good idea of what their shows are actually like. The quality is fantastic as well as really enjoyable to watch as Billie gets quite involved with the audience.
Live at The Independent, April 7th 2009
This show comes from The Independent in San Francisco on April 7th 2009. The first of four times they played this album live.
The almost 2 1/2 hour audio recording features them opening the gig with "Welcome To Paradise" before going into performing the whole album from front to back (minus "Song of The Century") then going into some of their older hits including a few rarities like "Who Wrote Holden Caulfield?". The sound quality is one of the best sounding recordings we have from the tour, with the fact it was their very first show of the tour is a bonus.
Live at Greek Theater
This recording isn't from the sound desk but from an audience member. The recorder of the show is anonymous but released on dimeadozen by a member called blg. The recording is 100% complete and contains all 30 songs, going for over 2 hours. It's probably one of the best sounding recordings from the North American tour and probably one of their best performances with the guys in a great mood.
Pinhead Gunpowder on KALX Radio
This recording is from KALX Radio in Berkeley, California from way back in 1996. PHGP played a full 18 song set, and lucky for us, someone managed to record it. The recording surfaced back in September 2012 over on Remote Outposts Blogs. Considering its age, the recording is still-excellent sounding and is probably the clearest live Pinhead Gunpowder recording out there.
"Brutal Love" Live
To mark the ending of Green Day's 2013 North American tour, I bring you a recording of Brutal Love, the closing song of every show of the tour (with the few exceptions that closed with Good Riddance). This good quality recording comes from 2013/03/28 - Allstate Arena, Rosemont, Illinois, USA.
American Idiot's final performance on Broadway

This recording is from the crowd and not directly from the soundboard so the quality isn't perfect, but it is still very listenable. The file for the show is a 108mb download and is one long unsplit mp3.
Green Day performs at the Fox Theater in 2013
For this week's download we have an audio recording from Green Day's comeback show last week at the Fox Theater in Pomona, California.
This recording is from the crowd and not directly from the soundboard so the quality isn't perfect, but I would still give it three out of five stars. This is not a complete bootleg as the audio comes from multiple sources. The zip mp3 file for this show is a 175mb download.

This recording is special since included is a full live recording of the whole 21st Century Breakdown album along with some greatest hits including "Homecoming" off of American Idiot.
This recording is from the crowd and not directly from the soundboard so the quality isn't perfect, but I would still give it four out of five stars.

After putting Green Day's 1994 BBC Sessions as last week's Download of the Week we got numerous emails requesting the 1996 BBC Sessions as this week's download.
Recorded on November 3, 1996, Green Day stopped by BBC Radio's studio in London to record a "BBC Session" in promotion of their second major label album, Insomniac.

Video of Green Day
With little to no details surfacing
from ¡Cuatro!'s premiere last night at the X Games in Aspen, we've decided to give you guys the next best thing for this week's Download of the Week.
Back in 2002, Green Day performed in a small cub at the X Games and we have a few pretty good quality videos from the show. The videos are of "Brain Stew / Jaded," "Longview," and "Welcome to Paradise" and come in mp4 format.
The 2012 Summersonic Festival EP
The 2012 Summersonic Festival EP contains five professionally recorded tracks, "Let Yourself Go," "Stay The Night," "Oh Love," "Basket Case," and "99 Revolutions" from the Summersonic festival. The songs were originally aired on television and the audio was ripped from those recordings and have been converted into iTunes mp4 files.
Four of the five songs on the EP are new songs released on the trilogy meaning that these were the first time the songs were professionally recorded live.
The Dookie Demos
The Dookie Demos
tape was what Green Day used when they were looking around for record labels that would release Dookie
. Besides only having demo versions of tracks that were included on Dookie
, there are also demo versions of songs that weren't released for years to come. "J.A.R." and "Haushinka" are among the tracks on the demo tape that never made it onto Dookie
The fourteen track demo tape is a unique piece of Green Day history and is something that every fan should hear at least once.
Green Day performing at Irving Plaza
A portion of Green Day's show at Irving Plaza in New York City in September of 2012. Songs include American Idiot, Burnout, Hitchin' a Ride, Holiday, Know Your Enemy, Let Yourself Go, Letterbomb, Murder City, Nuclear Family, Oh Love, Scattered, She, Stay The Night, Stop When The Red Lights Flash, and When I Come Around.
Each song is in beautiful 320kbps mp3 quality.
Green Day Christmas Songs
Billie Joe left these as a recording on GreenDay.com in December of 2001. The quality sucks (it was an over-the-phone recording) but really cool none-the-less. It's Green Day's version of three classic songs "Rocking Around The Christmas Tree", "First Noel", and "Santa Claus Is Coming To Town"
The Foxboro Hot Tubs live at the Stork Club
One year before Green Day released their latest epic 21st Century Breakdown
, Green Day was performing under their alias name, The Foxboro Hot Tubs. Like most of Green Day's smaller shows, their was a strict "no camera" policy that was put into place during the shows and very little recordings from the shows were released onto the internet.
Now over three years after these shows have taken place the first full-length bootleg from a Foxboro Hot Tubs show has appeared. The setlist of this show is as follows: "Stop Drop And Roll", "Mother Mary", "Ruby Room", "Red Tide", "Supermodel Robots", "Blood, Sex And Booze", "Highway 1", "Broadway", "She's A Saint Not A Celebrity", "Sally", "Alligator", "The Pedestrian", "27th Ave. Shuffle", "Dark Side Of Night", and "Pieces Of Truth".
This show was the first show that Green Day ever played as The Foxboro Hot Tubs, ironically exactly one year before 21st Century Breakdown came out on May 15, 2008.
* Please not that this is one MP3 file and not split into individual tracks for each song.
Audio Interview with Billie Joe from 1995
This Featured Download is an audio interview with Billie Joe done in 1995 when Green Day was playing in Holland.
In this interview Billie Joe discusses his songwriting, touring, Woodstock 94, and how Green Day "recently" exploded into the mainstream. This interview is conducted in a very laid-back manner and is more of a conversation between the interviewer and Billie rather than just question after question.
Acoustic Set 2001 - Endsession 59
Green Day played this acoustic set in 2001 in Seattle, Washington. This is Green Day's part from the series Endsession 59.
"Look For Love" sung by Billie Joe at age 5
The song was originally released as a single on 7" vinyl with a bonus interview with Billie at the studio on Side B. A clip of this recording can be heard at the start of the song "Maria". The original 7" was sold for only $1.25. Today with only a limited amount still in existence, I have seen these go on Ebay for almost $500.
For this Featured Download we are letting you download both the song "Look For Love" along with the interview with Billie Joe that was featured on the B side of the original recording.
"Who Wrote Holden Caulfield?" featuring Davey Havok
While on tour with AFI last year, on occasion, lead singer of AFI, Davey Havok would come out and sing a song with Billie Joe on stage. Our new Featured Download is a video recording of Davey Havok coming out and singing the song "Who Wrote Holden Caulfield?" with Green Day.
This performance was at the PNC Bank Arts Center on August 14, 2010.
Green Day combined Cheap Trick's "Surrender" with The Replacement's "Bastards of Young" creating what Green Day calls their "Midwest Medley".
This recording is from Green Day's show at the Warfield in San Francisco on October 13, 2005. Green Day rarely plays this mashup of songs live and this is a very good quality recording of it so it is a must-have for any Green Day fan.
"D.U.I." an unreleased track off Shenanigans
"D.U.I" is sung by Tre Cool and was cut from Shenanigans last minute. Green Day decided to leave the song off the album because they felt that the song was to irresponsible. In one interview Billie Joe said, "I like irresponsibility, but not that much irresponsibility".
