Green Day


Green Day is an American punk rock band formed in 1987. The band consists of lead vocalist and guitarist Billie Joe Armstrong, bass guitarist and vocalist Mike Dirnt, and drummer Tre Cool. Tre replaced former drummer John Kiffmeyer in 1990, prior to the recording of the band's second studio album, Kerplunk, and has been a member of the band since.

Green Day was originally part of the punk scene at 924 Gilman Street in Berkeley, California. Green Day was widely credited, alongside fellow California punk bands Sublime, 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", ''Nimrod'', and ''Warning'' 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. Its 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.

Green Day has sold over 65 million records worldwide with 24.639 million in the US alone. The group has won five Grammy Awards: Best Alternative Album for ''Dookie'', Best Rock Album for ''American Idiot'', Record of the Year for "Boulevard of Broken Dreams", Best Rock Album for the second time for ''21st Century Breakdown'' and Best Musical Show Album for ''American Idiot: The Original Broadway Cast Recording''. In 2010, a stage adaptation of ''American Idiot'' debuted on Broadway. The musical has been nominated for several Tony Awards, including Best Musical and Best Scenic Design, and has received generally positive reviews.
