A friend of mine has been trying to convince me for about a year now
Green Day is the best thing to come to music, ever. While I strongly
disagree with her, I did get some enjoyment out of Green Day's latest
CD/DVD combo Awesome as F**k. It provides very amusing concert footage
as well as some great songs performed in it's ninety minute runtime.
The footage is taken from when Green Day performed at Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan in 2010. It gives you the hint that Green Day is loved more by just people in America, but people worldwide appreciate what the band has to offer. The audio of the concert is good, but the footage is a little blurry which has me questioning a Blu-Ray buy.
I enjoyed the performances of 21st Century Breakdown and Boulevard of Broken Dreams the most out of every song played. Concert films are hard to review because of the fact there is a slim amount of things to take into consideration. Music, visuals, and content. Green Day passes in all three categories.
Awesome as F**k's purpose is to hold the fans over till their next studio album releases, possibly in 2011. For what it's worth the live performances are very good and the enjoyment level is there. I figure this would be a four star review if I just had more interest in the band. Still, it does it's job. It rocks.
Music performed by: Billie Joe Armstrong, Mike Dirnt, and Tre Cool.

I have recently become a fan of Green Day since purchasing American Idiot. I bought this CD/DVD set, and I love it!! Green Day are amazing, and quite simply, don't watch this if you don't like them. However, I think they're incredible, and I thoroughly enjoyed watching the live concert footage from Japan. They play some of their most popular songs, such as Holiday, East Jesus Nowhere and Know Your Enemy, but also surprise us with a few old classics from earlier albums. They work the crowd so well, and you just want to go and see them live so bad when you watch this! Tre Cool and Mike Dirnt rocked the drums and bass as usual, and Billie Joe is so sexy! (and a great singer and guitarist as well). 10/10, outstanding.
