The Foxboro Hot Tubs are, of course, Green Day. Everyone knew it, but a few weeks ago, the Green Day dudes came out of the closet, so to speak, with their poorly kept secret. Anyway, the album came out today and I will say that it is a very worthy $10. As you can see by the cover, it's very pre-hippie '60s, and I mean that in the best way.

Unlike Green Day's other alleged alias, The Network (which is supposedly members of Green Day and Devo), this album is actually yielding radio hits. I wonder if they expected it.

It's funny that two of my favorite albums of the year so far are by artists under other names: Green Day as Foxboro Hot Tubs and Tom Petty as Mudcrutch.
