Growing up with a band is strange. I was playing spin the bottle to Kerplunk in the early '90s, and sittin' shotgun to inappropriate high school boys when Dookie dropped. I won't go into detail of what I was doing during the follow-up Green Day albums. Now I've got health insurance and Green Day took its 2004 release American Idiot, turned it into a musical and aired it out on Broadway. It's since collected two Tony noms and kicked out a Grammy for Best Musical Show Album. Man, Billy Joe, I feel so proud of you.
