Green Day Wins MTV’s Best Rock Video Award 2009

Green Day wins MTV’s Best Rock Video, Best Cinematography, and Best Direction for “21 Guns,” directed by Marc Webb.

Green Day, nominated this year for three of MTV’s Moon Men, won for Best Rock Video, Best Cinematography and Best Direction tonight for “21 Guns.”

Yesterday they made a splash at the awards rehearsal when they rehearsed “East Jesus Nowhere” a few times and then put on an impromptu concert for the staff and crew at Radio City Music Hall. MTV posted four videos of an interview conducted with Green Day behind the scenes at Radio City Music. Click here to view them at MTV’s site.

On another note, I had to work at Bryant Park yesterday, which isn’t far from Radio City Music Hall, so I walked up to Radio City to see if I could see the boys at rehearsal… and missed them going into Radio City by five minutes. But I waited for them to come out and they finally did. I yelled out, “See you in London next month,” and Tré gave me a funny face and I gave him one back. Unfortunately, the video I took sucks balls, so I won’t be putting it up here.

Green Day also performed at the VMA’s tonight and did a rocking version of “East Jesus Nowhere.” Billie snuck in the line, “all the fucks that never learned to read.” bwahaha. The boys… they know how to rock. If MTV posts a video that I can link to, I’ll do that as soon as possible.

Congrats, Green Day, you completely deserve it!
