For those that are on one side of the bass guitar debate, you should look at this video. Mike Dirnt plays the track "Redundant" on MTV Live, and is not playing an acoustic bass, he's doing guitar work.
I just thought it was a cool video, and a step away from the bass guitar a bit. I will be moving to another band, and artist in the coming days, so no more talk of Green Day and Mike Dirnt.
