Before Green Day won over Broadway with an ambitious anti-war album, it was a simple-minded punk trio from Berkeley with an album called "Dookie" and song titles such as "Geek Stink Breath" and "Words I Might Have Ate. " While the band's sound has evolved greatly since forming in 1987, Green Day has maintained a knack for writing songs with lasting appeal. Here are five that still hold up well. "Who Wrote Holden Caulfield?" (from 1992's "Kerplunk!") This isn't the best song for name-checking the protagonist of "The Catcher in the Rye" (that honor belongs to Piebald)

The stage goes dark. A single spotlight illuminates the drum set. Gina Schock, barely visible behind the bass drum, pounds out a tribal tattoo. Another spotlight, in front of the drums: Bass player Abby Travis, head bobbing in time, plays off the rhythm with a two-note bass figure. As the figure repeats, new spots light up Jane Wiedlin and Charlotte Caffey, who punctuate it with an exclamation point, Ramones-style: “Hey!” The guitars come crashing in, and Belinda Carlisle floats to center stage to add her tremulous warble: “Go - Get up and go!

One of the questions we music critics are most often asked (along with "You mean they actually pay you to do that?") is "Will my kid be safe seeing a Green Day concert?"It's an understandable concern. Green Day fans, after all, tend to be young and energetic, with a large chunk of the audience still in junior high. Moreover, Green Day shows tend to feature a lot of moshing, which to most moms and dads looks distressingly like a bunch of strangers tossing their kid around like last week's laundry.

Michael Mayer knows a thing or two about coming of age. The Maryland-born director won a Tony Award for his work guiding the 2006 Broadway hit "Spring Awakening," which chronicles teens getting a grip on their budding sexuality. In 2010, he directed "American Idiot," a punk rock musical based on the Green Day album of that name, which follows a group of cynical, spent youths as they seek excitement in a big city. Mayer didn't just direct the latter, but collaborated on the book with Green Day front man Billie Joe Armstrong.

'Tis a day to be green, but not with envy, for all are invited to celebrate St. Patrick's Day. 'Tis time for all lads and lassies to join the festivities, no matter if ye be Irish or not. Sure, it would be great to celebrate the day in Ireland, but for most of us that is not a likely scenario. So don your green apparel tomorrow, grab your shamrocks and hoist a brew at one or more of the numerous celebrations in the area. You can choose from among the many Irish pubs planning major celebrations for their biggest day of the year.

I'm not kidding, but TV is: A lot of the new or best stuff on television today is aimed squarely at children.* "A. J.'s Time Travelers" (11:30 a.m.-noon, Channel 45) -- This new Saturday-morning Fox series has colorful production values, playful tone and an educational bent: It's about a 15-year-old named A. J. (John Patrick White) who uses a machine to travel through time with his buddies, as Mr. Peabody and Sherman did on "The Bullwinkle Show." They travel with help from pages of an encyclopedia, and there are moral lessons as well as historical ones throughout.

New faces of R&B and one of the genre's legends are among the leading nominees for top honors at the 47th annual Grammy Awards. Innovative rapper Kanye West leads the field with 10 nods, followed by R&B sex symbol Usher and the soulful Alicia Keys with eight each. The legendary Ray Charles has seven nominations for his posthumously released all-star duet album Genius Loves Company. Usher was expected to lead the nominations announced yesterday, so it was surprising to some industry insiders that West managed to slip by him. Usher's Confessions has sold more than 7 million copies, roughly three times as many as West's The College Dropout.

He unscrewsthe cap; he unwinds; he unwinds.He hoes under, a deepman sunken. A solidman. He jolts. Pullshimself taut. Upright. Slingsthe knapsack.
