Diablo magazine has an article about world-famous bands that hail from the East Bay, starting with Green Day. KFOG DJ Big Rick Stuart says:

Green Day never seemed to have chased being famous, and it never seems like they are faking some emotion in their music to get attention. It just happens. They just do the Green Day thing.

Tonight, local bands in West Ashley, SC, perform Dookie in its entirety to celebrate Green Day's influence on pop music. The show begins with an acoustic set of songs from some of Green Day's other albums.
