Everybody started somewhere.

I got hip to Green Day just a titch too late to have seen them in any basements, though I had plenty of friends who did. I love how this video weaves grainy, early 924 Gilman Street footage over Green Day's most recent video off Revolution Radio (a kick ass album, by the way), and reminds the viewer that even mega-international superstars once played DIY clubs for just a couple buck a head for an all ages show.

Man, I wish I'd been to one on those basement or small club shows during the Lookout! days!
