Green Day Cleans Up At MTV Video Music Awards

Rock was resplendent at the MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday night, as the veteran punk group Green Day took home seven moonmen and newcomers The Killers and Fall Out Boy won one each.

Green Day, who arrived at the venue in the vintage green convertible from their gritty “Boulevard of Broken Dreams” video, won best rock video and video of the year for the clip — two of their leading eight nominations. They also won the viewer’s choice award, best group and several technical categories, losing only to Gwen Stefani’s “What You Waiting For?” for art direction.

In recent years, hip-hop and pop have dominated the show, especially in the major categories. Not this year: My Chemical Romance and Coldplay were among the showcase performances, and Kanye West was the only rapper to win an “all-genre” award, with his “Jesus Walks” taking best male video.
