Green Day Rips Through 'Father of All,' 'Basket Case' at AMAs

It’s been 25 years since Green Day dropped Dookie, and Sunday (Nov. 24) at the American Music Awards, they proved “Basket Case” has lost none of its bite over the last quarter century with a ferocious live rendition of the pop-punk classic after ripping through “Father Of All,” the lead single from an upcoming album from the trio in 2020.

Their performance was preceded by a heartfelt introduction from Billie Eilish, who said, “Growing up, there was no band more important to me and my brother.” Sure enough, Billie and Finneas were all smiles from the front row as they raged along to the song, with Post Malone and a random toddler getting turnt too.
