Congratulations to Green Day, winners of the Best Rock Album trophy at Sunday's Grammy Awards!

The broadcast was full of, shall we say, memorable performances (Pink turned into a sprinkler, Lady Gaga played with fire and Elton John), but the best — and we're biased here — came from Green Day and the Broadway cast of American Idiot performing "21 Guns."

If you missed the outstanding performance, check it out.

Here's a clip from CNN that takes us to a Grammys rehearsal. Dave Matthews is up first, but then Green Day is interviewed at the 1:46 mark.

And if that wasn't enough to satisfy you, there's a video of Green Day and the American Idiot cast recording "21 Guns" in Oakland just a few days after the show closed at Berkeley Rep.

I love this musical! I saw it when it opened up in Berkeley and I wanted to buy the soundtrack. Sadly they didn't have the cast version of the album. So happy they finally released one! A MUST SEE SHOW AND A MUST BUY ALBUM!
