"I feel like we've been through puberty together," said Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong toward the close of the band's joyous, marathon show at Cleveland's House of Blues last night. It was their first U.S. show in two years and much of the adoring throng was middle-aged guys and girls reveling in the soundtrack of their teenage years, many of whom came to the all-ages show with their kids. In town for Saturday's Rock and Roll Hall of Fame ceremony — they're being inducted into the Ohio institution alongside Joan Jett, Lou Reed, Ringo Starr, among others — the band tore through a
CLEVELAND, Ohio - The madness has begun. Green Day fans are already lining up at House of Blues for tonight's sold out, general admission show.
Fans began posting photos of the line on Twitter early Thursday morning. The line is already stretching down the street. Some have been in line for more than 30 hours with tents and sleeping gear. Green Day announced the special, pre-Rock Hall show earlier this month (the band will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame at Cleveland's Public Hall on Saturday). Tickets for the House of Blues gig sold out in a matter of minutes.
CLEVELAND, Ohio - Pop quiz, kiddies: How much Green Day is too much Green Day?
Ha! It's a trick question, because there's no such thing, and I'm pretty sure every single person who was at the newly minted Rock and Roll Hall of Fame band's sold-out show at the House of Blues on Thursday would testify to that.
Three solid hours of Green Day - playing tunes from their Sweet Children days all the way to their latest trilogy, "Uno!,'' "Dos!,'' and "Tre!'' - proved one thing, and proved it emphatically: The band DESERVES to be in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
What's really sweet - no pun

From Gilman Street to the Hall of Fame, one of rock’s greatest acts never really left where it started.
Before they were “the guys from Green Day,” Billie Joe Armstrong and Mike Dirnt had to bum a lot of rides to get to 924 Gilman Street. Armstrong and Dirnt were teenagers when the Berkeley music club, created in the spirit of the People’s Park movement of the 1960s, opened in 1986, and became the place for East Bay kids to plug in guitars and play punk songs in front of a crowd.
The future rock legends, who lived a few miles away from the all-ages club, were initially denied when they tried

As The Breakfast Club returns to theaters after 30 years, the movie's breakout star, Ally Sheedy, spoke to us about the teen classic and how it gave her cred with her genderqueer daughter.
When you were thinking of the character, was "goth" a thing?
I don't think so. Molly told me earlier that the Cure had some music out then, so that look was out there. But I didn't know the Cure. I don't know when the "goth" term happened, but it was afterwards. As well as emo and all that. I just wanted this character to look like the cool girl that hung out with the Beats.
