Product Description

Multi-platinum rock band Green Day will release a brand-new live album, entitled Awesome As F**k, on March 22nd, 2011, on Reprise Records. Available as a CD with bonus DVD or as a CD plus bonus Blu-Ray, the set features explosive performances captured during the band's 2009-2010 World Tour in support of their Grammy® Award-winning album 21st Century Breakdown.

Green Day recorded every show on the 21st Century Breakdown tour. When it concluded, the band members, singer-guitarist Billie Joe Armstrong, bassist Mike Dirnt, and drummer Tre Cool, sifted through the audio to deliver the best performances from their shows around the world. The footage on the bonus DVD or Blu-Ray was shot at the band's show in Tokyo, Japan. The package includes Green Day's biggest hits and fan favorites, including "21 Guns," "American Idiot," "When I Come Around," and "Good Riddance."

Critics raved about the 21st Century Breakdown tour, which launched in North America in July of 2009.

Released by Reprise Records on May 15th, 2009, 21st Century Breakdown debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Top 200 chart, won a 2009 Grammy Award for "Best Rock Album," and has sold more than 3.5 million copies worldwide. It has spawned the hit singles "Know Your Enemy," which has been certified gold, and the platinum-selling "21 Guns," whose video won three 2009 MTV Video Music Awards, including "Best Rock Video."

Review

"As if releasing a wave of energy that had been building up during their four-year hiatus from touring, Green Day poured all their heart and soul into a powerhouse set." --Rolling Stone

"The band's relationship with its audience is disarmingly real." --Spin

If you're a Green Day fan, this is the best live package yet. The word "awesome" is not hyperbole. You get not only a CD of concert recordings from around the globe (America, Canada, Britain, Ireland, Germany, Austria, Japan, and Australia) but also the DVD of an unforgettable performance in Tokyo.

Greatest hits as well as longtime favorites are included. Every song is played and sung at full throttle. The stage show is off-the-hook showmanship, a constant stream of flashing images and exploding fireworks and walls of sound. Billie Joe, Mike, and Tré are all over the place, leaping, flailing, belting out one great anthem after another and urging the crowd to go crazy. And what horde of screaming, shouting, moshing fans can match the pure, rabid, raving insanity of the Japanese?

After more than 20 indefatigable years together, from obscurity to the popularity of "Dookie" to criticisms of inauthenticity to "American Idiot" to ensuing superstardom and Broadway success, Green Day has arrived at a creative and professional peak. They are no longer derivative, no more a simple rock or punk band: they are themselves, an original phenomenon. No one's going to forget The Who, The Ramones, The Clash, or The Replacements, but Green Day is making vital music that speaks to the world today.

Does this album surpass the live "Bullet in a Bible" from 2005? That's a matter of taste, but I think it does. "Bullet" was recorded during the "American Idiot" tour, so half of the set list was from that CD. The new album is longer and more diverse, with songs from the length and breadth of the band's catalog, so it's a worthy purchase even if you already have "Bullet." Since the CD and DVD have different tracks, a total of 24 tunes are covered.

I love Green Day and they are an awesome live band, but this concert fell short of being awesome. The DVD editing was annoying as hell...bing, bang, boom...the camera cuts were overly rapid and all over the place. The video producer must think all Green Day fans suffer from ADD. On the plus side, the music is solid, the crowd enthusiastic and it does make a nice souvenir of their most recent tour.

Greenday are one of the best live bands of all time and Awesome As F**k is their newest live DVD and CD combo documenting their 21st Century Breakdown World Tour. Having seen Greenday live 5 times over the past 15 years in a range of venues ranging from 500 capacity to 40,000 capacity I can tell you that their live energy is amazing and their performances are always superb. This show in Tokyo is a killer set with all the Greenday live trademarks and intense showmanship backed up by a great set list and quality production. There's a few nice tracks to keep long time fans happy including "Cigarettes And Valentines", "Going To Pasalacqua", and "Who Wrote Holden Caulfield?" in addition to the obligatory hits from their two recent albums that have been worldwide phenomenons. Awesome As F**k is definitely recommended to all Greenday fans and sets them up as legends of the rock world...as if they weren't already after all they've achieved. By the way, check out the killer drumming from Tre Cool - astounding playing from a human metronome.

Green Day's Awesome As F**k (CD+Blu-ray) album is a wonderful homage to all the reasons that many people are huge fans of this band. Having grown up listening to Green Day starting with Kerplunk, there has certainly been quite a bit of growth in the band right alongside me. Green Day is, without a doubt, one of the most entertaining live bands in the business. Watching Billie Joe work a crowd is something akin to watching a master artist paint a portrait. He does so without seeming to expend any effort at all and you find yourself mesmerized by the pied piper once again.

I had the pleasure of seeing a concert on the 21st Century Breakdown tour and this CD/Video Disc set captures the magic of that experience quite well. Although it isn't as heavy as Bullet in a Bible, it packs a wallop on its own and will leave you begging for more. It was really nice to see Green Day include some of their older, less commercial hits on this album like "J.A.R" and "Going To Pasalacqua".

The interesting thing about this album is that I was expecting something different and more political. Instead I got whimsical punk music and I was delightfully surprised by this. It is no secret that Green Day has been hitting hard with pro-intellectualist overtones in their recent work and this album tones down the overall message just enough to make it a delightful romp through an evening with Green Day. The message is still there, it just isn't the foremost feeling that this work conveys.

I think that Green Day has been one of the most enduring and surprising bands of all time and they certainly have found their share of critics and adoring fans alike.

Before I begin, let me just say that I love Green Day, especially their live performances. I have been a fan since I was 13 and I'm now 30. That having been said I was incredibly excited when I heard about this set, much like I was a few years ago when I heard about "Bullet In A Bible". Then I saw the tracklisting...and that it was a single CD w/DVD(or Blu-Ray)...and the disappointment set in.

First of all, if you order a hard copy, the CD is only 63 minutes long. Why? The average show on this tour was 2 1/2 hours but you're only giving me a one hour CD? If you purchase the iTunes version you get an extra three tracks ("Letterbomb", "Christie Road", and a medley of "Paper Lanterns/2000 LYA") which brings you to just about 78 minutes. Great. Unfortunately iTunes is not lossless, so you're not truly getting CD-quality sound. Which may not matter to some people but it does to me. The song selection for the CD/iTunes version is very good. I was thrilled to get great sounding versions of "Who Wrote Holden Caulfield", "J.A.R." and "Going to Pasalacqua", etc. but do I really need another version of "W.M.U.W.S.E." or "Good Riddance"? Not that these aren't great songs but they played "Armatage Shanks", "Stuck With Me", "80", "One For the Razorbacks", "The Judge's Daughter", etc. on this tour. Why aren't they on here??? Especially since the CD is only 60 minutes!!! In addition to the above complaints, there are some bizarre things that were cut-out of the songs...like the whole guitar intro/doodle/thing that Billie does into "Pasalacqua" is cut. Why? Before they played "Caulfield" at MSG, Billie sang a few lines from "Stuart and the Ave" but that's cut too. Again, why?

Then there's the DVD/Blu-Ray...
