Wow that's some serious competition boys and girls. At my age, I'd probably have to dress like a Victoria's Secret model to get on stage and sing that song with them. I play that song on the bass so that helps too.

NO NO NO!!! We are in 2013, he's 12 so he was born in 2001 soooooo... when he was 2 it was in 2003 and Longview came out before 1992!!!!!!!

WOW thanks for posting Green Day on your website!!! This is the KID'S (Davis of Davison) Father, yes WTOP Radio got the age wrong - he is 12 born in 2001. The song Longview came out in 1994, but you guys know that. So he wasn't even born yet.  My son and my entire family appreciate & Thank you for everything you have done for us. Davis loves the guitar and plays it daily, it will not just sit around. You guys are awesome and an musical inspiration, not just to my son, but to young musicain everywhere. Rock on! Chip

This is great! This is probably the highlight of the shows on the tour. The guest singer for "Longview" in Brooklyn put on quite a show too! :-D

Wow!  A little bit of singing, a little bit of rap.  Well done!  Reminded me of LP's Chester.  So cool how we all know how to be a member of Green Day when we get the golden chance to get up onstage with them.
Oh and yep, miscalculation for sure.   We know "Longview" was released in 1994, not 2000.  ; - )

Hum ... No no the boys wasn't born when the song was came out ... If they are 12 years old, he was born in 2000 , miscalculation !

I was there. It was awesome. This kid seriously took over. you can actually see Mike fall over after the line about masterbation. By the way I feel like I should say this kid couldnt have been born when this song was released.
