Music Monday: "Holiday" from "American Idiot" (the musical)

Friday night I went to see "American Idiot" when it was here in town.  I was so excited. I've been wanting to see it since I heard they were making the musical.  I really loved that album, and that was the tour when I saw Green Day live (and met them).  I always thought the album was really theatrical, so I was anxious to see how they used it in a show.  I was not disappointed.  It was a true rock musical -- politically edgy (I mean, it's Green Day, so ... yeah), profanity (again, Green Day), very little actual dialog, awesome sets, and fantastic choreography.  I really really enjoyed it!

For a small taste of the show, here's a pretty good performance of "Holiday" from "The David Letterman Snow."

  1. I saw the musical a few years ago and wasn't in love with it, but I did really like how they used the music and the messages. I heard it might be turned into a movie. I'm definitely interested in that!
