Green Day Performing Live At Montreal's Foufounes Electriques In 1994

A moment in Montreal Rock music history.
Green Day Performing Live At Montreal's Foufounes Electriques In 1994

Before the massive international success of American Idiot, but after the still-pretty-popular album Dookie Green Day came to Montreal and someone got it on tape. I like to refer to this period as "prime Green Day," when the band had some actual edge and they had yet to completely sell out. Personal opinion, but either way, its pretty sweet to have video footage of their 1994 Montreal performance.

Playing at Foufounes Électriques on March 23rd 1994, Green Day performed to a crowd of Montreal fans. Using an old school camcorder (cellphone recorders weren't really a thing yet) one fan got some footage of the band playing the single "One Of My Lies."

Watch Green Day in Montreal below:
