    Green Day Bring Their ‘Revolution’ to Brooklyn [Exclusive Photos]

    Punk rock fans old and young rushed down Atlantic Avenue in Downtown Brooklyn last night (March 15) in an attempt not only to escape from the high winds and freezing temps engulfing New York City, but to find shelter at Barclays Center for Green Day‘s sold-out “Revolution Radio” tour stop, marking the high-flying heroes’ second appearance at the prominent indoor arena.

    Just moments before the band took the stage, the packed house in attendance was treated to a pre-set playlist consisting of a trio of iconic tracks, including Queen’s monumental “Bohemian Rhapsody,” Ramones’ commanding “Blitzkrieg Bop” and topped off with Ennio Morricone’s classic “The Good, the Bad and the Ugly” theme. After chants of “Mama, just killed a man!” and “Hey Ho, Let’s Go!” were all sung and done, and the band’s Drunk Bunny mascot rolled around on stage for a bit, Green Day finally hit the stage at 9PM, catapulting immediately into the first of many songs the band would go on to perform throughout the night, 2009’s politically charged anthem “Know Your Enemy.”
