A Punk Rock/Pop band from Oakland, California. Started out in 1986 as sweet children and later changed their names into green day. Started releasing music as independant artists and in 1993 signed to a major label to release their hit classic, Dookie, which would go on to sell 15million copies worldwide. After their 1995 album Insomniac, the band would expirment with other genres such as hardcore punk, ballads and folk punk (as seen in Nimrod and Warning). The band's latest album, American Idiot, shows them experimenting with rock operas and more politically driven lyrics, as well as a less distortant, cleaner sound. Their new, political, left wing image caused many older GD fans to critisize them as "sell - outs" when they had been on a major label for over ten years. Sadly, most of their new fans only know them from American Idiot and never heard the old green day, who sounded more like a mixture of the Sex Pistols and The Ramones.
