Me: Dude, I can't think of the coolest Green Day CD ever that features extra-special features from when I wasn't even born!
Green Day fan: You weren't born then?! Man you missed out on heaps of awesome shit. But it's 1,039/Smoothed Out Slappy Hours which you shouldn't forget.
Me: ... was that a hardcore Green Day fan not mistaking me for a tween who only likes American Idiot because they saw the film clips on MTV? Cool!
