My Feeling's on the Album

Green Day is a remarkable band in the history of punk rock . Bullet in a bible is their first ever Live Album .
The members of the band themselves were not aware that their concert was going to come out as an Live Album.
Those who have never seen Green Day perform live, do yourself a favor and buy a ticket. In the concert you can witness large amounts of people from many foreign countries just to witness their favourite band Live in action.

The energy level is tremendous and is apparent when listening to the attentive crowd they play to in England on this recording.
Added to that a visual feast of spectacular background effects, photos and videos and the non-stop movement of the band members onstage and you're witnessing the best punk rockers that ever played.
The main thing which keeps this band alive is their political criticism.
Sure, bands like the Sex Pistols, Ramones, and the Clash kicked ass, but this trio takes it to a new level.
Another thing Green Day deserves praise for is that they keep their ticket prices reasonable (like around $65 for really good seats).
Compare that to a group like the Eagles, who haven't had a hit in years and still charge $150+ for a decent seat.
And the way Billie Joe treats the crowd it's that he tends to shout out and make the people go crazy .
Okay, enough-- see this band or look back when you're older and wish you had!

Overall

Bullet in a Bible managed to become a huge success in the history of Punk Rock.

So get the Bullet in A Bible Original Album NOW!!!
