Green Day's New Video Pays Tribute to the Berkeley Venue That Banned Them

In their brand new video for "Revolution Radio," Green Day pays tribute to Berkeley's famed punk rock venue / community center, 924 Gilman Street, by performing inside the heavily graffiti-ed space and splicing in footage of them playing Gilman in the band's early days.

Which is particularly heart-warming because, back when Green Day first signed to a major label in 1993, Gilman banned the band on account of them being corporate sellouts. Billy Joe, Tré, and Mike were eventully allowed back for a show in 2001 (best YouTube comment: "I wonder if this concert felt weird for them, like meeting your ex girlfriend for coffee five years later"), then played a benefit show there for AK Press in 2015.

In the mid-'90s, nobody thought this video would ever happen, so enjoy!
