Real recognize real.December 23, 2019
The great Denny’s hardcore show fiasco just got a ton more star power behind it. After the official statement by Denny’s and the near $1800 bill given to the 17-year-old who rented the venue, there is some good news. Green Day just covered all the costs and even left a nice message.
The Denny’s show was a raucous mosh pit for the hardcore band WACKO that occurred last week and took the internet by storm.
Let’s first fully catch you up if you’ve missed this cultural zeitgeist. A 17-year-old booked a power violence band named WACKO to play a show at a Denny’s in Santa Ana, CA. The kid, Bryson Del Valle, said it was his birthday.
The concert quickly turned into what we all expect of a hardcore show and some damage was done. Actually, over $1000 in damages. This led Del Valle and WACKO to launce separate fundraisers to cover the bill.
In steps Green Day. The Rock and Roll Hall of Famers and Californa natives heard of the incident. They then donated $2000 to cover all the costs of Denny’s bill. Check out a screenshot of Green Day’s story below.
Wow, @GreenDay dropped $2k to help the #wacko kids and young Bryson in the aftermath of the Great Denny’s Punk Rock Riot of 2019. Special shout to @DennysDiner for renting a 50-person room to a 17year-old and then shaking him down for $1800 to cover the Moons of My Hammy Spread pic.twitter.com/5dDPsVBYI8

They even left a heartfelt message to Del Valle in the GoFundMe page.
“Hey Bryson call us! We wanna play the Bastards Club. Love, Green Day.” Bastard Club is the name of Del Valle’s skateboarding and promotional booking company.
Green Day even replied with a joke about their upcoming album Father Of All…
