REVIEW: ‘American Idiot’ cements Green Day’s place in music history

on April 30, 2014

DURHAM — “American Idiot,” the rock opera by Green Day, took the stage Tuesday night at the Durham Performing Arts Center and showed that you don’t need to wait until a band is retired to make a musical, you just need to make it good. “American Idiot” is. Here in Durham for two nights, it’s the tour of the Broadway show based on the California band’s 2004 album of the same title. “American Idiot” is about the coming of age of three young men wanting out of suburbia. It’s a universal story of being an angst-ridden young man who needs to go on an adventure – good or bad – to come of age.

Record Store Day Chart Recap: Vinyl Album Sales Reach Historic High

on April 28, 2014

Record Store Day (RSD) shakes up Billboard's charts, as a bevy of albums and singles released for the indie retail event on April 19 overwhelm our lists.

On the 25-position Tastemakers chart -- which tracks the top-selling albums at independent and small chain stores -- only three albums weren't specifically tied to RSD festivities. The chart (excerpted below) is led by Green Day's 18-track "Demolicious" album, which was released exclusively to indie retailers on CD, vinyl and cassette. (Yes, cassette.)

It sold nearly 4,000 copies, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
