Green Day: new album, interesting title
Green Day is set to release a new live album, and if the title, "Awesome As F***," is any indication, this CD is going to be f***ing awesome.
The Reprise Records release, which will feature a CD, bonus DVD and special iTunes extras, comes out on March 22. The material comes from the band's 2009-2010 "21st Century Breakdown" world tour and contains the best performances from various cities. The Grammy-winning, multi-platinum band members - vocalist/guitarist Billie Joe Armstrong, bassist Mike Dirnt and drummer Tre Cool - handpicked the tracks themselves.
The title of this album certainly strikes a chord (pun intended!) and could quite possibly go down in history as one of the great album titles. So, we sifted through our mental playlists (because Googling would have been cheating!) to come up with a few memorable album titles, and this is what we came up with.

Billie Joe Armstrong headed to Broadway
Green Day's Billie Joe Armstrong is getting ready to rock Broadway: The musician is set to make his theater debut this week in "American Idiot," the hit rock opera he co-authored.
From September 28 through October 3, Armstrong, 38, will take on the role of St. Jimmy, a ghostly apparition who helps fuel lead character Johnny's drug addiction. Tony Vincent, who usually plays St. Jimmy, has temporarily left the show to attend to family matters, but will return October 12.
"American Idiot," playing at the St. James Theatre, is based on Green Day's 2004 smash album of the same name. "We've always thought that somehow there should be some sort of stage version," Armstrong told MTV News, "because that's what was going on in our heads."
And Vincent told Broadway.com that collaborating with Armstrong on the project has been an actor's dream. “We both operate in such different echelons and platforms, so there’s always this exchange of creativity, but also encouragement and validity in what we both bring to our individual arenas.”
