Maybe you’ll spot the person giving out Novocain (“Give Me Novacain/She’s A Rebel”), or the mini Macy’s “parade” (“Macy’s Day Parade”). And that’s just a start.

To see the full image—and count how many references you can spot—check it out here.

In a comment on Green Day Community, the creator said this started as a smaller-scale project and quickly escalated.

“I've always enjoyed illustration and though I'm no super-talented artist, almost 2 years ago I decided to do some sort of a Green Day fan art to celebrate my love to my favorite band. It all started as an attempt to recreate band in a cartoon-ish style and ended up being a wall poster with reference to every Green Day album song,” the creator says.

“161 songs are somewhere in this picture, some of them are stupid puns I'm quite ashamed of, others are references to single artworks, videos, song lyrics and some are just plain song titles written somewhere because I have no imagination. Pretty sure someone will find something I never intended to reference and also pretty sure that I've forgotten something. There're lots of other Green Day related stuff too, I never really realised how huge the band is and how many things are going on in a Green Day world.”
