While technically Best Coast is a two-piece with Bobb and Bethany as the only official members, they typically tour with an extra guitarist and a drummer. Photos by Michel Dussack

Best Coast seemed an odd choice to open for Green Day, however most fans were very receptive of their music. Photos by Michel Dussack

Oddly enough, while the band played a marathon of a set, only six songs came from their album trilogy released late last year. Photos by Michel Dussack

Instead, the set was focused in on "American Idiot" and "Dookie", with a smattering of material in between, as well as even older material for the diehard fans. Photos by Michel Dussack

When it came time for the encore, fan favorites "American Idiot" and "Jesus of Surbubia" opened it up strong. They then closed out the night with "Brutal Love" off their latest album "¡Tré!" Photos by Michel Dussack

Green Day have gone through hell and back throughout the past six months, and yet, they seemed just as passionate and determined as ever at Barclays Center. It's clear that these guys aren't going anywhere. Photos by Michel Dussack
