Are there bands and albums that you know you should love, but for whatever reason just don't? For host Bob Boilen, Green Day is one of those acts. Also on this week's program: the sparkling textures of Sunset Rubdown; a mysterious and dark collaboration from Danger Mouse, Sparklehorse and David Lynch; Allen Toussaint playing jazz and blues; and two samples from our Exclusive First Listen series. Hear songs from West African guitar hero Vieux Farka Toure and an album of demos from the legendary supergroup Crosby, Stills & Nash.
