“Before the Lobotomy” is one of my favorite songs from Green Day’s 21st Century Breakdown. This video, like the one I linked to for Washington’s “Welcome to Paradise,” is filmed from the higher seats but at stage left instead of stage right this time. It gives the same sort of perspective, has lovely views of Tré and Mike, and is a bit steadier on the filming techniques.
The dynamic of the entirety of Green Day is a well-oiled machine, and these videos from above nicely show how they work together, even if BJA is usually the focal point. There’s a BJ Storytime at the beginning for your enjoyment, too.
“Before the Lobotomy,” Green Day, Tampa
