Foxboro Hot Tubs = Green Day

Green Day is getting inducted into the Radio Hall of Fame, and wrote about Foxboto Hot Tubs, a Green Day side project and album that is one of my favorites. Anyone that knows me, knows that I love garage rock, and it doesn’t get any more garagey than this.

The Foxboro Hot Tubs are another thing entirely. Their 2008 album, Stop, Drop and Roll!!!, is a classic album that flew so far beneath the radar many are not even aware of its existence. And it holds up to nearly everything Green Day has ever done, with the possible exception of Dookie and American Idiot. Billie Joe Armstrong, Mike Dirnt and Tré Cool are all members of the group; had they called it a Green Day album, it would be further reason for the band’s induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame this weekend (although clearly, they don’t need it).
