Rick Hoskins, a former member of the Berkeley Rep's board of trustees, is spending time in Germany with his family and saw this poster in a Berlin subway station.

Green Day Berlin Here's Rick's message:

"Green Day appears to be pretty popular over here in Germany.
The kids that are my son's age all seem to know them (and I didn't!).
I saw the poster as I was coming out of the subway station at Grunewald, the mansion district of Berlin (did you see the movie Valkyrie?) and the home to many extravagant embassies."

Sounds like the perfect place for a Green Day poster.

Now if we could only get an American Idiot poster up there as well...


The music crosses all boundaries..nationalities...and resonates with so many people of this world. It speaks to much of youth and this time...
They are really one of the only groups not afraid to talk of current events and make people think and take stock of their lives.
a subway station seems very fitting ...
