Green Day took the MTV VMA stage yesterday for the VMA Rehearsals and they did way more than just a simple sound check.
"For us to get used to a stage, we just have to play for a long time ... and there were a lot of people, and it seemed like they were just tired, they'd been working here all day, getting the production together," Billie Joe Armstrong told MTV News after rehearsals. "So we ran through 'East Jesus Nowhere' a couple times and then we were like, 'The hell with it, let's just jam.' So we played 'Longview,' 'Murder City,' 'Holiday,' 'American Idiot,' 'Know Your Enemy.' We just kept going, and I got up dancing, so it was pretty cool."

You can read the full article over at MTV News.

Also, while on the topic of the VMA's, has posted up a few new video interviews with Green Day from yesterday including: VMA Rehearsal Becomes a Jam Session, Green Day Responds to Lady Gaga, Green Day Warns Lady Gaga about Their Pyro, and Michael Jackson's Impact on Green Day.

Don't forget to tune into MTV tonight at 9:00pm EDT to watch the VMA's live!
