"Now Waaaaaaaait A Minute...."

Want to catch the best concert performance of the last year? Then pick up Green Day's "Bullet in a Bible" CD/DVD and watch the live version of "St. Jimmy"-- Billie Joe Armstong et al are in full rock-star mode. The CD is okay, but the DVD is what really shines here, showing a performance from Milton Keynes in England.

See Billie Joe wantonly running across the stage, striking defiant poses. See Billie Joe use his microphone to crash the cymbals during the chorus. See Bill Joe do some nice little breakdancing, including a split.

Talk about a commanding stage presence. This snippet from the video needs to be made a video ASAP.

Another bonus: The band doing "Shout" and incorporating a couple lyrics from the Monty Python song, "Always Look on the Bright Side of Life". Nice.
