Green Day Prove Art Can Save Lives

Green Day Prove Art Can Save Lives
The artwork for Green Day’s American Idiot album proved a lifesaver for the band’s fan, Ruby Wilson of Halifax, England. On June 11, the 12-year-old discovered a live hand grenade from World War II in her home garden that resembled the one on her band T-shirt. Wilson told the Halifax Evening Courier: "I saw what looked like a round metal object and realised it looked like a hand grenade.” A bomb disposal unit immediately rushed to the scene and evacuated the neighbourhood, in order to transport and dispose of the deadly weapon.
