WATCH: Green Day Plays Concert at High School in 1990

green-dayAs a musician I often find it inspiring to hear the origin stories of famous artists and bands. As a member of bands in high school and college, the idea of playing sold out stadiums and arenas seem like a fantasy. Thus, I was overjoyed this week when Reddit dug up some old footage of Green Day performing a full set at Pinole Valley High School in 1990. (PVHS is the Alma Mater of Mike Dirnt, bassist of Green Day.)

This lo-fi, handheld VHS recording shows the band performing songs off their debut album 39/Smooth and one song off of Kerplunk in front of a small crowd at PVHS. Of course in the middle of the set their bass drum pedal breaks, so Billy Joe goes solo for a bit, playing some incomplete versions of songs, along with an unreleased track. It’s pretty awesome.

So check out the video below, along with the set list and time code for each song.
