On ya, lads.

America is going through a rough time, with Mother Nature being a real see-you-next-Tuesday at the moment.

Hurricane Harvey, a Category 3 bastard and the worst tropical storm to hit in 12 years, has battered Houston and other parts of Texas like nothing else.

The good side of it all - a lot of people are doing what they can to help, by donating time and money to people in need. 

The good guys from Green Day helped in their own way, by jamming a free concert on Facebook Live to raise money for the hurricane relief. Rumour has it they donated the first $100k, too.

The played through all the classics too - give it a watch below.
