Exclusive: Watch Green Day perform 'Longview' in Green Day: Rock Band


10:20 AM on 05.05.2010



While Green Day had been rocking small clubs and pushing its sound grassroots style with Lookout! Records for years, it wasn't until its major label debut and first single, "Longview," that the band started to receive worldwide attention.

A catchy tune with a poppy bassline and lyrics about the boredom of suburban life, the song was a hit with disaffected youth and others who couldn't help but giggle at the word "masturbation." "Longview" topped the charts, its music video received what seemed like "every fifteen minutes" airplay on MTV, and it earned the band its first Grammy nomination for "Best Hard Rock Performance."

So yeah, of course it's going to be included in the upcoming Green Day: Rock Band. We have an exclusive clip of a young, in-game Green Day playing the song in its entirety. Green Day fans with a keen eye can spot all of the authentic visual touches, and Rock Band fans can just try to imagine what the note highways for their respective instruments will look like. (The HUD has been stripped for the video, letting you focus on the band's performance.)

Green Day: Rock Band hits PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and Wii on June 8.

Enough teasing: Vib-Ribbon is headed to PlayStation Network

There was an out-of-nowhere nod to Vib-Ribbon at Sony's E3 press conference this year, and then nothing. No follow-up announcement. That wasn't very nice at all. But everything will be better, soon enough: the cult PlayStatio...more
