5SOS Crush Green Day’s ‘American Idiot’

on June 12, 2014

There are things we know about 5 Seconds of Summer: they love banana pranks, look good in fake superhero costumes, have a thing for Ewoks and they are massive Green Day fans. Which is why we’re not surprised that for the new issue of Kerrang! magazine, they joined former My Chemical Romance guitarist Frank Iero, Falling in Reverse, You Me At Six, Bowling for Soup, Rise to Remain, New Politics, Escape the Fate, the Blackout and others for a track-by-track cover of Green Day’s American Idiot album.

ALTERNATIVE PRESS: Throwback Thursday: The First CDs We Bought

on June 05, 2014

Green Day will forever hold a steadfast place in my heart, as their critically acclaimed seventh studio album, American Idiot, was the first CD I ever declared as my own. After some hefty amounts of incessant coaxing toward my mother, I found myself indubitably adrift within the vast expanse of the records’ soaring, yet angst-laden vocal patterns and radio-ready punk-rock infused instrumentals. American Idiot had me enthralled; it had me consumed; it had me in love.

New Film in Production "EAST BAY: By the Punx, For the Punx, About the Punx"

on June 03, 2014


Please get in touch with the project’s lead archivist Daniel Hague at archive@eastbaypunk.com if you would like to contribute any archive materials to the film.
 

In the mid 1980s, on the eastern shores of the San Francisco Bay, a fuse was lit. As the shadows of the 1960s counterculture gave way to the Reagan 80s, disillusioned kids growing up in Berkeley and its surrounding suburbs discovered punk rock... and each other. Together, with amplifiers, copy machines and hearts blazing, they fought to carve out a movement of their own, and changed music, art and literature forever.
