When Green Day were throwing around ideas for their latest music video, they ended up enlisting a local face you might be familiar with.
Hilken Mancini founded Punk Rock Aerobics back in 2000. Last year, her virtual classes became a Zoom phenomenon during the height of the Coronavirus pandemic. That’s what put her on Green Day’s radar, and the group reached out to her to film a workout they could use in the video for their song “Here Comes The Shock.” Hilken sent along the clip, and they ended up using the whole damn thing.
Old school Boston rock heads (like me) might remember Hilken from her stint in the band Fuzzy back in the ’90s. So she’s always had the moves. Speaking of moves, move on over here and vote for your favorite Green Day songs!
