Green Day showed out at the 2016 MTV Europe Music Awards and won the Global Icon Award. Green Day is one of the most influential alternative / punk bands in the world and had some choice words to say about the election this year.
Most notibly, the lead singer, Billie Joe Armstrong let the crowd know that they are glad to not be in the United States right now with such a ‘horrendous election’ going on at the moment. He went on to add that they had been coming over to Europe since they were the crowd’s age.
They happily accepted the iconic award and later in the night performed one of their greatest hits, “American Idiot.” Way to go Green Day!
