924 Gilman St
924 Gilman St, Berkeley, CA - A Berkeley landmark known as tightwad hill overlooks the U of C Football field and many Green Day fans have made the trek there over the years to see the location that inspired the song. Unfortunately they went to the wrong place. While students at John Swett High School in Crocket no doubt cribbed the name from the more popular hangout, Billie confirmed in 1995 to Rolling Stone that the real location of the song's namesake was in fact his old high school.
