Green Day Presents "American Idiot"

Band Performed Ground-Breaking
Punk Rock Opera in Las Vegas

BURBANK, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 11/16/2004 -- One of "the most influential bands of their generation" (Entertainment Weekly), Green Day performed their latest album, "American Idiot," in its entirety at the Joint in Las Vegas on December 7, 2004. It is the group's only US performance.

Musically aggressive and lyrically ambitious, "American Idiot" is a "truly great rock opera" (Rolling Stone).

Part victim of circumstance and part victim of political climate, "American Idiot" follows Jesus of Suburbia through his confusion, alienation and disillusionment, while fueling that "rocking out in front of a mirror when you're 15" energy Green Day are famous for.

"American Idiot" debuted at #1 on the Billboard charts, and topped the charts in the United Kingdom, Canada, Japan and Australia.

The title track from the album quickly climbed to #1 on the Modern Rock Chart and is Top 5 at Active Rock. MTV.com premiered the album with THE LEAK, both MTV and MTV2 deemed the video Buzzworthy and Green Day dropped by TRL on November 1st.

The band has scheduled performances on VH1's "Big In 2004" on December 5th and the "Billboard Music Awards" on December 8th. They are currently touring the United States with New Found Glory and Sugarcult.

"Good Riddance" (Time Of Your Life)" Lyrics

Another turning point, a fork stuck in the road.
Time grabs you by the wrist, directs you where to go.
So make the best of this test, and don't ask why.
It's not a question, but a lesson learned in time.
It's something unpredictable, but in the end it's right.
I hope you had the time of your life.
So take the photographs, and still frames in your mind.
Hang it on a shelf in good health and good time.
Tattoos of memories and dead skin on trial.
For what it's worth, it was worth all the while.
It's something unpredictable, but in the end it's right.
I hope you had the time of your life.
It's something unpredictable, but in the end it's right.
I hope you had the time of your life.
It's something unpredictable, but in the end it's right.
I hope you had the time of your life.
