Bullet in a Bible

Posted on

Last year’s Grammy-winning American Idiot gets the live punk-rock posterity it deserves with Bullet in a Bible. Baby bands should study the London concert to see how stadium-size ambition and garage-rooted integrity can rapturously coexist.

U2 may have broken the concert-circuit bank this year, but it was Green Day who staged the greatest rock show on earth.
