A punk rock band that has been around since 1988. All three members are from California. Green Day consists of Billie Joe Armstrong (guitar), Mike Dirnt (bass), and Tre Cool (drums).
They have 9 albums to date. Their most recent one is American Idiot which is an amazing album (and is also why many people THINK they are sellouts, but they are NOT). But their first big hit was Dookie which came out in 1994.
Even though many people discovered Green Day because of American Idiot, it doesn't mean they're posers. Many fans were young when Green Day's first albums came out and after American Idiot, went out and bought all they're earlier albums and realized that those albums are even better than American Idiot.
People who think Green Day are sellouts shouldn't. And if they do, they should keep their negative comments to themselves.
1. After she heard American Idiot, she went out and bought all Green Day's other albums and realized that they were even better than American Idiot!
2. Without question the greatest punk rock band on EARTH!
