Green Day biography
Formed when a 15-year-old Billie Joe Armstrong and Mike Dirnt met in 1987, the group brought out debut album 39/Smooth on Lookout! Records just a couple of years later, showcasing a raw punk sound that would be honed to perfection on the breakthrough record Dookie. Released in 1994, Dookie became an international success alongside hit single "Basket Case" - partly owing to an incident where Mike Dirnt was punched on stage by security in a case of mistaken identity at Woodstock '94. The group again met massive success with the release of 2004's American Idiot. Debuting at the top of the Billboard charts, the rock opera became their most successful record to date, and the all-singing, all-dancing, award-winning musical that followed felt like a natural evolution.
Considering Green Day's punk rock beginnings in the early '90s, the band has grown to become one of the biggest rock bands in the world. While there's little doubt that a huge part of that comes from the charisma of frontman Billie Joe Armstrong, there's something to be said for their ever-evolving singles that have seen the band transform from a teenage punk band into the tongue-in-cheek politically-minded rock band we know today. While earlier songs from Dookie,"Basket Case", "Welcome to Paradise" and "When I Come Around" demonstrated Green Day's ability to create catchy fast-paced punk songs, their later tracks such as "Good Riddance (Time of Your Life)", "Wake Me Up When September Ends" and "Boulevard of Broken Dreams" exemplified the band's range and accessibility. New tracks such as "Outlaws" and "Still Breathing" for which they even launched a #StillBreathing Instagram campaign to focus on their new single, invites fans to upload photos using the hashtag and show what the song means to them. With this, Greenday continue to add fans to their loyal fanbase!
Fans lucky enough to attend their energetic live shows can expect plenty of audience interaction - or even a soaking thanks to Billie Joe's water gun-armed performances of fan favourite "King for a Day". The group are a must-see act for any budding rock fan, having made a permanent mark on the scene and entering the ranks of pop-punk royalty in just under three decades on the music scene.
