    Green Day Never Sold Out; You Just Got Old and Complacent

    Editor's Note: It's not every day that a band capable of filling arenas headlines a gig at the (comparatively) intimate Marquee Theatre. But that's exactly what's going down tonight, when the Bieber-bashing, ¡Uno-¡Dos!-¡Tre! -releasing Green Day heads to Tempe for a sold-out show. Critical consen ... More >>

    Green Day's New Song "Epic as F*ck?" Not Even Close.

    The evolution of Green Day has to be one of the strangest transformations in music history. Over the last 25 years the band has moved from angsty, power-pop tinged punk to politically-charged rock operas to Broadway musicals. So a return to their roots, so to speak, was always in the cards. It was n ... More >>
