Green Day is an American rock trio formed in 1987.[1] The band has consisted of Billie Joe Armstrong (vocals, guitar), Mike Dirnt (bass guitar, vocals), and Tré Cool (drums, percussion) for the majority of its existence.

Green Day was originally part of the punk rock scene at 924 Gilman Street in Berkeley, California. Its early releases for independent record label Lookout! Records earned them a grassroots fanbase, some of whom felt alienated when the band signed to a major label.[2] Nevertheless, its major label debut Dookie (1994) became a breakout success and eventually sold over 10 million copies in the U.S. and 15 million worldwide.[3] As a result, Green Day was widely credited, alongside fellow California punk bands The Offspring and Rancid, with reviving mainstream interest in and popularizing punk rock in the United States.[4][5] Green Day's three follow-up albums, Insomniac, Nimrod and Warning did not achieve the massive success of Dookie, but they were still successful, reaching double platinum, double platinum, and gold status respectively.[6] Green Day's 2004 rock opera American Idiot reignited the band's popularity with a younger generation, selling five million copies in the U.S.[7] The band's eighth studio album, 21st Century Breakdown, was released on May 15, 2009.


Green Day's one of my favourite bands.. And one of the best bands in the world.. Kings of Punk Rock !!
Favourite songs: American Idiot, Holiday, Boulevard of Broken Dreams, Wake Me Up When September Ends, East Jesus Nowhere, Know Your Enemy, 21 Guns, Platypus, Jinx, Burnout, Basketcase

Great band, with some real good songs.

All of American Idiot and almost all of Know Your Enemy are really really good...

You mean 21st Century Breakdown.
I love the name ^

They're currently my favourite band! I loved Breakdown because its so different from American Idiot but still maintains the same awesome rock-opera style. Most bands can't do that.

Take Linkin Park for instance. Meteora and Hybrid Theory were too much alike. They couldn't be different without changing their genre, which was what they did in MTM.

.... what are you guys waiting for?
you call yourselves true Greenday fans?
FLAME HER GODDAMN YOU!!!
do something!
make her cry!

she compared it to LP and thinks it's better. she even said "NO DOUBT" which was another band but that's history.
come on! 3 band names in one sentence post and Greenday is given least importance.
some fans you guys turned out to be.
when you die, Billie Joe Armstrong will send you to hell or something,.... ALTERNATIVE ROCK HELL!!! <- this is bad for punk rockers.

Green Day is basically PUNK rock and it is freakin' awesome!!!

i mean i am a pretty avid listener and these guys are definitely im my top10.

Billie Joe with his awe-inspiring vocals , Tre Cool with his smashing drums , and the really awesome bass guy together have formed a great band.

Their tracks kinda alternate from time to time. American idiot and Know Your Enemy are one kind while Boulevard of Broken Dreams and 21 Guns are another.

Plus they care about the environment and were featured in the Simpson's Movie. So what's not to like?

Yes, Dookie is an album.

I don't know about Warning, it didn't do too well. Green Day were in a big slump between Dookie and American Idiot.

yes. it got them in VH1's list of best Album Covers ever. it's a good album cover. i like it Very Happy
though i haven't heard the songs in Dookie

Aceviper wrote:I have Working Class Hero.
FYI; "working class hero" is a John Lennon song. it's pretty kickass. and the Greenday cover is kinda cool too. if you liked the cover go check out the original.

'Basket Case' is an excellent song, I'm surprised nobody has mentioned it here yet.

'Do you have the time, to Listen to me whine'

'Sometimes I give myself the creeps/Sometimes My Mind Plays tricks on me...'

Video's good too-

I'll tell you what.

Go here and download whichever song charted at least #10 on any chart. That should do it for you.

22 121 Guns? on Sun Aug 23, 2009 7:05 am

Shouldn't "21 GUNS" be called "121 Guns"?
I mean there are a lot of guns in there and the more the better, right?
And BJA sings 1,21 guns..... so shouldn't it be '121 GUNS'?
Just asking.

Oh and that part where he goes "...throw up your hearts into the sky",.... did I hear that wrong? Coz that sounds VERY weird. Why would I want to throw up my heart? Why would anyone wanna throw up their hearts?
But it is a catchy songs I'll give you that. I liked it.

Those are EXACTLY my thoughts.It should be called 121 guns mainly because the singer says ONE...21 guns.
But anyway the song is great.
I donno how they pull it off everytime.
Every album of theirs seems so perfect.

And I've listened to a single song from the album Dookie-Burnout...didn't like it that much.
I'm hooked to Viva la Gloria,21 guns,Murder city,Last night on earth for the moment.
