When I first heard they were going to be on there, I was surprised. Not as surprised as Ellen’s introduction though. She said “I’ve waited 14 years to get this next band on our show.” So of course Green Day chats with Ellen and then plays a song. Probably a new one off “Revolution Radio” would be a practical guess,but a wrong one. The guys performed the title song from their album “American Idiot.” Why did they play something that is almost 13 years old? They were on Ellen to announce that American Idiot will be made into a movie. “I think it’s going to be a lot different from the musical,” said Armstrong, “I think there’s just going to be a lot of imagery that we couldn’t pull off in the musical, in the stage version. It will be shocking in a way that makes you think.”
