Where in the world did Green Day go? 

Just when everyone was probably wondering “Say! What in the heck are our local heroes Green Day up to?” the titanic, Broadway-immortalized power trio is back with an unexpected surprise.

On March 22, they’ll unleash “Awesome As F---,” a brand-new live album-DVD, culled from their recent 2009-10 tour backing the Grammy-winning “21St Century Breakdown.”

The DVD alone is worth the price of admission — it was shot entirely in rabid-fan Tokyo.

Billie Joe Armstrong never does anything halfway.

He painstakingly had every single concert recorded, then he and his bandmates sifted through the shows to arrive at a perfect 17-track set list that includes “Holiday,” “21 Guns,” “Know Your Enemy,” and, of course, “American Idiot.”

A deluxe edition will feature two bonus songs, “Letterbomb” and “Christie Road.” A special iTunes package will offer two more: “Paper Lanterns” and “2000 Light Years Away.” Awesome, indeed.
