Can you at least use a better/smaller photo where he's actually performing or something? My general rule of thumb is if the picture is bigger than the research section, it just doesn't look good.

Also, it's your thread now, but why are the high notes in reverse order? That's just really confusing.

Where is the G2 in "My Generation"? Did you mean this note?
http://youtu.be/Jfqc02xOP1M?t=2m5s
That's way too short of a note to be listed and it's actually a G♯2.

I think the note in "She" is closer to G♯5, too. Is it even him?

That picture is very large and not too pleasant. And yeah, definitely switch those high notes around. And make sure to use ♯ ♭ on each one of the notes; it appears you have a couple #s instead of ♯s.

I loved the picture used in the last OP tbh. I thought it was a great snap of Billie. I wouldn't mind you changing it to that one again.

Also F#4 in ¡Viva La Gloria! and B2 in Working Class Hero. I've looked up in Wikipedia page of the albums and Armstrong isn't credited for backing vocals in any.

Ya, Mr.Chonghead, please fix this. I've already done an overhaul of the OP.

Didn't some person find melodic C♯5s in the last page of the previous thread?

I think the purple notes should be removed. Also, is the 21st Century Breakdown C5 legit?

G#4's : Nuclear family, Oh love (both full and falsetto), Walk away, A little boy named train.
G4's : Let yourself go, rusty james, sweet 16 (both full and falsetto) , kill the dj, drama queen, 99 revolutions
F#4's : Carpe diem, stay the night, the forgotten, amanda, X-kid, 8th avenue serenade, missing you, brutal love.

There's also a falsetto D5 in Troublemaker, dirty rotten bastards and 99 revolutions, and some falsetto A4 in 8th avenue serenade and drama queen.

Plus, there's a D3 in 8th avenue serenade and a D#3 in Brutal love.

I dont know what you guys think about those screams I asked about before in this post (nuclear family, loss of control and kill the dj, because the C#5 in Let yourself go is already there)

I hope that helps Smile

In regard to those high E6's, I'm more inclined to put them as non-modal yelps.

Where's the G4 in When I come around? Wouldn't it be really out of tune? Or is there a version in standard tuning I don't know about?

E5 is added.
About When I Come Around, it was in one of the verses where he song the note off-key.

Has anybody checked out his stuff from his run as St. Jimmy in American Idiot on Broadway?

He get's a ton of F♯4's, G4's and I believe either an A4 or B♭4 at the end of Last of The American Girls/She's A Rebel.
