Biography

Green Day is an American punk rock band formed in 1987. The band consists of lead vocalist and guitarist Billie Joe Armstrong, bassist and backing vocalist Mike Dirnt, drummer Tré Cool and guitarist and backing vocalist Jason White, who became a full member after playing in the band as a session and touring guitarist for 13 years. Cool replaced former drummer John Kiffmeyer in 1990, prior to the recording of the band’s second studio album, Kerplunk (1992).

Green Day was originally part of the punk scene at the DIY 924 Gilman Street club in Berkeley, California. The band’s early releases were from the independent record label Lookout! Records. In 1994, its major label debut Dookie released through Reprise Records became a breakout success and eventually sold over 10 million copies in the U.S. Green Day was widely credited, alongside fellow California punk bands Sublime, Bad Religion, The Offspring and Rancid, with popularizing and reviving mainstream interest in punk rock in the United States.

Green Day’s three follow-up albums, Insomniac (1995), Nimrod (1997), and Warning (2000) did not achieve the massive success of Dookie, though they were still successful, with Insomniac and Nimrod reaching double platinum and Warning reaching gold status. The band’s rock opera, American Idiot (2004), reignited the band’s popularity with a younger generation, selling five million copies in the United States. The band’s eighth studio album, 21st Century Breakdown, was released in 2009 which achieved the band’s best chart performance to date.

    My congratulations to Green Day. These guys are fucking awesome. They deserve to be in the rock n' roll Hall of Fame. 27 years of performances, great music and millions fans around the world. They gave punk a second life. Many thanks and respect to the guys for beautiful music - I enjoy it. Waiting for a new album. I hope to return to the oldschool style and sound like Dookie/Insomniac. Be cool and listen Green Day! \\m/ \\m/ XX

    This is one of these bands that everyone likes no matter what music they usually listen to [4]. I mean seriously, if someone tells me that Green Day sucks I never take anything they ever say seriously from that point on.

    American Idiot and 21st Century Breakdown might be the best pop rock musicals ever made. Yet I believe the rest is utterly forgettable...
