Why do some bands have stacks of marshalls or any amp behind them, is that for them to hear or do they just have all of there soundcome from the amps behind them?

for the look of them mainly if its a wall of stacks. Back in the days of glam etc. half of them were dummies. the amp will be miced up and run through the p.a. and the musicians will hear what they are playing through the monitors set up in front of them. the amps are there to create the sound of an electric guitar etc. then that is run through the p.a theres no chance a single amp would be loud enough to carry through any decent sized venue

i was wondering because i saw a video of green day playing at a pool party and The guitar/singer (billie joe) has a good stack of cabs behind him and so does bass player(mike Dirnt) and it doesnt look like a big venue, and i dont think green day would ever do that so here it is right here and also on this one here
