1. A great punk-rock band from California which consists of Billie Joe Armstrong
(Lead vocals and guitarist), Mike Dirnt
(Bassist), Tre Cool
(Drummer) and when they play live, Jason White
(2nd guitar). Formally known as "Sweet Children", Green Day was named after a segment on Seaseme Street when one of the characters said something along the lines of "This is such a green day!" Former drummer was Al Sorbrante
who quit the band after their first album 1039/Smoothed Out Slappy Hours
which was released in 1991. Anyone who comes here to bash Green Day has no life and needs learn to respect all types of music.
