Green Day US Flag from American Idiot - 2004

Back in 2004 Green Day released American Idiot.  Before Obama, before Trump, Green Day rocked it loud and clear with this anti-establishment song.  In the background is a classic 48 starred American flag.

The lead singer  Billie Joe Armstrong can be seen here in front of the greenish Green Day US flag from their classic video.  In the video Green Day points out the mass media is agenda driven and out of control.
The stripes of the green Green Day flag are being washed away as the band plays on.  Green Day is the last of the great pre-millennial bands to make their mark on the system.  They advocated a change and put something smart and original on the nearly fully colonized space of rock music.
