10-year-old shines at Green Day’s emotional Outside Lands homecoming

The show started as Green Day’s performances have in recent years — with a drunken white rabbit holding a tallboy and dancing on stage to the Ramone’s “Blitzkrieg Bop.” And then a pumped-up Armstrong and his two band mates, Tré Cool on drums and Mike Dirnt on bass, fired off crowd-pleasing hit after hit: “American Idiot,” “Holiday,” “Know Your Enemy.”

A cover of Kiss’ “Rock and Roll All Nite” was a fun surprise, and Armstrong used the moment to remind the crowd that despite a festival lineup heavy on R&B and pop headliners, rock 'n roll is still alive. 

But while the crowd “went crazy” again and again, it was a 10-year-old boy that led the people in the audience to lose their minds.  

"Who knows how to play guitar?" Armstrong called out to the crowd. "It's only three f—king chords."
