Area Man Somehow Roped Into Arguing Passionately For Green Day

YOUNGSTOWN, OH—Though he admitted he hasn't listened to the band in 10 years, tech-support specialist Jonathan Meagher, 25, somehow found himself defending Green Day while slightly intoxicated at a local bar Saturday.

"Some guy we were drinking with said the band was 'complete shit,' which, I mean, say what you want about Green Day, but 'complete shit' is a bit of an overstatement," Meagher said. "Then the guy said something about Limp Bizkit being better, and before I knew it, I'm pounding my fist on the bar and saying that Green Day might be the best band of our generation. Seriously, I don't even know the lead singer's name."

Shortly after returning home from the bar, Meagher purchased the Green Day song "American Idiot" from iTunes, played the major-label debut album Dookie, and reported being amazed that the band hadn't really changed at all since 1994.
