Green Day Scores Another Grammy

“Grammy” and “Green Day” seem to be two phrases (or…a word and a phrase, rather) that seem to really go together these days, and not just because of the alliteration.

Last night, Billie Joe Armstrong (who is currently rocking the role of St. Jimmy in American Idiot on Broadway) took home a Grammy for Best Musical Show Album. This marks the 5th Grammy in his collection which also include 21st Century Breakdown for Best Rock Album 2009,  Boulevard of Broken Dreams for Record of the Year 2005,  American Idiot (the album, not the new Broadway musical, obviously) for Best Rock Album 2004, and Dookie for Best Alternative Music Performance 1994. (Wow, that’s crazy to think that one of my current favorite bands was already winning awards when I was five years old!)

Although Green Day was not up for an award a year ago, they did a pretty kickass performance of  21 Guns featuring the cast of the Broadway show (which did not include BJA at the time.)

In case you’ve forgotten or missed it:
