Alan Cross, beloved radio broadcaster and documenter of all things rock presents an artist profile of the band Green Day as part of his Alan Cross Guide to Alternative Rock audiobook series. Cross, in his familiar, affable, radio voice discusses the band Green Day. "It's one thing to be young, loud, and snotty," Cross remarks "but it's another thing entirely to be old, loud, and snotty." Not many angry young punk bands have the kind of staying power of Green Day and Cross takes a look at how this California punk band has been able to remain relevant and authentic after all these years. Fans of Green Day and new listeners alike will delight at this succinct primer.
Rock on: listen to another Alan Cross Guide.

I am a 30 year old over-the-road truck driver. I listen to A LOT of audiobooks!
Yes. I am a Green Day fan. Have been for years, but I was always just listening to the music. I didn't know much about the band members until listened to this.
The straightforward facts presented in a way that made you pay close attention. Learning things I didn't know before.
He is a very clear speaker and his presentation of the book was great. I couldn't find any fault with his narration.
No. Its really not the type of book that brings out emotions in a person. Non-Fiction works usually are not emotional at all to me.
A must listen short piece for any fan of Green Day or Punk music.
