  • Artist: Green Day

    Year released: 1994

    A veritable pop-punk Where's Waldo, Green Day's Dookie became an iconic cover purely based on the countless hours of examination the cover offered. An illustration by Bay Area artist Richie Bucher, the Dookie cover is a who's who of the San Francisco scene and the cultural touchstones the band walked over, including Black Sabbath and Angus Young. It's clean, chaotic, and instantly recognizable.

    As 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.

    Real Skateboards co-founder Jim Thiebaud has been friends with Armstrong for more than 15 years, and said he has long wanted to collaborate on a project with Green Day.
