Hightlights From The Breakdown – Platypus (I Hate You) – By Request!

This past Saturday, Nicole W-M and I woke up at the crack of dawn to hop into her extreme Eco-Friendly Car, a Honda Hybrid Insight, and we ran away toward the Canadian border for over 300 miles on one tank of gas, which cost $30 for a one-way trip. That is some awesome stuff.

Green Day Concert Site at Jacques Cartier Quay, Montreal, Quebec, Canada

Not as awesome, though, as why we were heading up from New Jersey to Montreal: Green Day’s gig at the Jacques Cartier Quay in the heart of Old Montreal. I’ll write more about the show itself (rain, rain, rain, and insane fans), but score one for the traveling band of Australians who requested “Take Back” and instead got us “Platypus (I Hate You).” The verses got mixed up, but hey, for doing it at the last minute, who cares? It’s a crazy performance and was awesome to dance to!

Again, until they are no longer available to watch, here’s two videos of the song. [Here’s a third video with good sound.]

“Platypus (I Hate You) – Green Day at the Jacques Cartier Quay – 8girl8 (Not in focus, but it’s got good sound and you can see Billie Joe rip on the guitar.)
