Is this thing on?: Green Day Youtube Channel Returns

Warner Brothers and Youtube/Google got into a monetary pissing match back in January over the fee structure that Google would have to shell out in order to pay Warner Brothers and their artists for official band music videos. Youtube/Google wouldn’t back down and Warner walked away with all of their artist’s videos and channels, including Green Day.

The dispute was settled last week and Warner Brothers will begin the process of making available official videos once again. They have not done it yet, however. Some of the videos on the GD Channel still have a disclaimer that they are “No longer available due to a copyright claim by Warner Music,” so I have no idea when the Warner Music Group will actually get around to uploading or unblocking certain videos.

I also have no idea about the final agreement between Warner and Youtube regarding the fee structure agreed upon, I just know that soon official Green Day videos will be back on YouTube. (Here’s a link to various articles if you want to read more.) Meanwhile, in honor of the entire brouhaha, here’s a blast from the recent past, Green Day’s appearance on the Colbert Report and “Green Day Keyboard Cat.” Play Warner and Youtube off, Billie Joe!
