We look at the best of the best, including the likes of Kurt Cobain, James Hetfield, Billie Joe Armstrong, Corey Taylor and Jello Biafra, whilst Andy Biersack, Gus Wood and more tell us their favourite lyricists, favourite lyrics and what they mean to them. Who knows, you might even feel inspired to write your own!

Where: Straz Center, 1010 MacInnes Place, Tampa Tickets: $79.50 and $44.50; (813) 299-7827 and strazcenter.orgAs with any job, there are occupational hazards that come with being an actor in musical theater. On the touring production of “American Idiot,” it's the “bangover.” “There are definitely some bangovers,” said Evan Jay Newman, the production's musical director, who also performs as part of the show's onstage band. “That's what we call the headache you have the next day after you've been on stage headbanging.”
Thiebaud’s company, Real Skateboards, is selling custom skateboards styled after Green Day’s album art. Proceeds will benefit the hospital.
BERKELEY, CALIF.—Local skateboard legend Jim Thiebaud has definitely made good
The co-founder of Real Skateboards, one of the biggest and most respected board companies in the U.S., Thiebaud announced a new fundraising partnership on Monday with East Bay rockers Green Day that will benefit Children’s Hospital & Research Center in Oakland.
“It’s a true collaboration with Green Day,” Thiebaud told the Daily News. “I’ve been friends with Billie Joe for more than 15 years. I grew up in Berkeley and Oakland. When you were a punk rocker or a skateboarder, you stuck out, so you got to know everyone in the scene.”
Mimicking the graphics for Green Day’s latest, multi-album release, “Uno!,” “Dos!,” and “Tré!,” Real is issuing custom skateboards that the company will sell in skate shops and online. Proceeds will go to Children’s Hospital.

Skateboarding and music can be a positive force for change. A portion of the proceeds from these decks will be donated to Children's Hospital & Research Center Oakland.
Children's Hospital & Research Center Oakland is the Bay Area's only independent children's hospital. For over 100 years, It's been Children's Oakland's mission to take care of every child who needs help, regardless of ability to pay.
