Green Day got to the top and stayed there!
Green Day’s first major-label but third album release, Dookie, dropped in 1994 and almost instantly took the band to superstardom.
With fifteen million copies sold, they quickly became not only everybody’s favorite punk trio but also started a new American punk trend. Bands like Rancid, Blink-182, Sum 41, and Offspring became part of this revived musical movement.
After a decade of more albums and years on the road, Green Day released American Idiot in 2004. This album firmly put Green Day on the map of super-famous bands.
In May 2009, they released 21st Century Breakdown, continuing their political punk crusade.
September 2009 saw the unlikely appearance of, American Idiot – The Musical!
Billy later said he’d love to see American Idiot as a feature film, stating: “I thought American Idiot had a lot in common with something like Rocky Horror Picture Show”.
Among Green Day’s best tunes, you’ll find Wake Me Up When September Ends, Basket Case, American Idiot, Good Riddance (Time Of Your Life), Boulevard Of Broken Dreams, When I Come Around, Holiday, and 21 Guns.
