    I gave it only one listen so far. I remember liking about four tunes...I couldn't tell you the names. I need to give it another listen but my first impression was just "meh".

    Mike Dirnt (bass player) had some teeth smashed out during that set. Right at the end of their set, when it descended into chaos, a security guard mistook Mike for being a crowd member that had got onstage, and tackled him. He smashed his front teeth out. It can be seen happening on the video of the gig.

    I want to add one more thing. I have had 6550 Groove Tubes in this amp since I got it. Some people use the EL 34's. I am not even sure I remember what the amp came with. I do know that back then GT's were the first to do the whole matching thing. I am not saying that they are better than anything else. I am not sure how many guys arte using 6550 tubes in their JCM 800. I am.

    If i'm not mistaken, in the Dookie days he used a Fender Strat copy with a bridge humbucker into a JCM900 amp. His rig changed around the American Idiot album

    Early days (pre Dookie) was his Fernandes Strat copy into a JCM900 dual reverb.

    Dookie / Insomniac era was his Fernandes strat into a pair of modified 1959SLPs, "meat" and "Pete".

    He started to change things up around the Nimrod and Warning era, using LP juniors (some with hunbuckers) and SGs.

    American idiot onwards he really got into the P90 thing with LP juniors.

    Amp wise, since Dookie he has pretty much always used the modded superleads. They did appear on Letterman playing Basket Case and he was using a 900DR. He's pretty much always used 1960B cabs with V30s also.

    First dye your hair green. Then say the word DOOKIE 500 times. Then get a RAT pedal. There you go.
