Green Day gründeten sich 1986, nannten sich damals allerdings noch "The Sweet Children". 1989 merkte man, dass das wohl ein Fehler gewesen sein musste und benannte sich um. Der Name Green Day leitet sich von einem kalifornischen Slangbegriff für einen Tag (Day) voller Langeweile ab, der mit dem Rauchen von Gras (Green) totzuschlagen versucht wird.

Billie Joe Armstrong (Vocals/Gitarre) gründete die Band als 15jähriger mit seinem Schulfreund Michael Ryan Pritchard, alias Mike Dirnt (Bass) und John Kiffmeyer, alias Al Sobrante (Schlagzeug) in Kalifornien. 1990 verlies Kiffmeyer die Band und sein Nachfolger wurde Frank Edwin Wright III, alias Tré Cool.

Das Debütalbum "1039/Smoothed Out Slappy Hours" stößt auf wenig Resonanz, da Punk tot ist. 1992 ist das jedoch vollkommen anders und die zweite Platte "Kerplunk" verkauft sich 680.000 Mal und erreicht Platin-Status. Mit dem 1994 erschienen Album "Dookie" ist klar: Punk lebt wieder und ist mainstreamfähig, was auch The Offspring eindrucksvoll bewiesen. Elf Millionen Platten, Diamant-Stauts. "Basket Case" und "When I Come Around" werden zu den Hymnen des Neopunks. Die Band tritt auf dem Festival Woodstock II auf. Die Platte "Insomniac" ist mit 1,9 Millionen verkauften Platten in Amerika zwar erfolgreich, kann jedoch an die Erfolge von "Dookie" nicht anknüpfen.

Das 1997 erschienene Album "Nimrod" zeigt einen musikalischen Werdegang an, der viele Fans enttäuscht. U. a. enthält die Platte mehrere Songs, die mit Akustikgitarre eingespielt wurden. "Good Riddance (Time of Your Life)", eine Gitarren-Ballade, wird auch heute noch auf Hochzeiten in Amerika gespielt und wurde bei der letzten Folge von "Seinfeld" gespielt. Dennoch erreicht auch "Nimrod" Doppel-Platin-Status.

Mit der 2000 erschienen "Warning" kommt es zur Abkehr vom Punk. Die Band wendet sich zum Songwriter- und Rock-Bereich. Lediglich eine Millionen verkaufte Platten waren für Green Day schon eher als Flop zu bewerten. Innerhalb der Band kommt es zu Auseinandersetzungen, da keiner mehr mit dem anderen zufrieden war. Sänger Billie Armstrong überlegte, solo weiter zu machen.
Dazu kam es jedoch nicht. Vier Jahre lang gönnte man sich eine kreative Pause um sich mit "American Idiot" zurück zu melden. Die Rockoper verkaufte sich über 14 Millionen Mal und wurde zum erfolgreichsten Album. Bei den MTV Awards räumt die Band sieben Awards ab, darunter der Award für das beste Album und als beste Rockband. In den USA, UK, Österreich und der Schweiz erreicht die Platte Platz eins der Charts. In Deutschland erreicht sie Platz drei. 2007 interpretiert die Band die von Hans Zimmer komponierte Melodie für den Kinofilm "Die Simpsons - Der Film" neu. Ebenso machte man sich für die "Campaign to Save Dafur" an den Song "Working Class Hero" von John Lennon. Der Song wurde auf der CD der Kampagne "Instant Karma: The Amnesty International Campaign to Save Dafur" veröffentlicht.

Help a Green Day fan in need (update) | Update, May 26: Thank you to everyone who has donated to help Mar, a Green Day Community member who is raising money online to help her seriously injured father, Rick. He's in California, where he fell and broke his neck, and his health insurance won't cover the cost of an air ambulance to transport him home to Ohio for rehabilitation. Mar has posted an update on her GoFundMe page thanking you ? but the work's not over yet. Her family has recently learned that the deadline to pay for the air ambulance is June 5. After that, Rick will be forced to enter a California rehab center for an indefinite time period. The final price for the air ambulance is $18,900 and she is still about $7,700 shy of her goal. Please continue to spread the word (www.gofundme.com/getrickpiehome ) on social media and donate if you can! Every donation makes a difference. Original, May 21: Hello readers! A fellow Green Day fan needs your help. Mar, a longtime Green Day Community member (and one of my close friends), recently informed us that her father, Rick, suffered a terrible injury on April 30. While in California, he fell and broke his neck, leaving him partially paralyzed. He's endured two surgeries and now their family's health insurance won't cover the cost of an air ambulance ? $18,000 (USD) ? to transport him home to Ohio for rehabilitation, so he can regain his strength and movement. If Mar's family doesn't collect this money before Rick is discharged from the hospital in California, it's likely he'll be stuck in one of their rehabilitation centers alone, 2,300 miles away, without his loved ones supervising his care and recovery. That's why she's turned to crowdfunding to collect the cash quickly. After a day on GoFundMe, Mar and her family have collected $5,200 and are still $12,800 shy of their goal. Please consider donating to this great family. Every dollar helps. And if you can't help with a donation, please spread the word by sharing this GoFundMe page: www.gofundme.com/getrickpiehome ? thank you! mehr...

Billie Joe posts message to fans, "fuck the old generation start something new" | Billie Joe took to Instagram to let fans know about their upcoming documentary (originally announced back in 2014) about the easy bay punk rock scene they grew up in. The bulk of his message was encouraging people to not focus too much on the past or trying to impress "elder statesmen", but to do your own thing. Here's his text in full: "dear friends "fuck the old generation start something new" we're about to release a new documentary about east bay punk rock.. it's a document about a time in our lives of being young. trying new ideas. and singing along together.. but just remember that this is the past.. if you get anything out of a documentary it should be to start something new and blaze a new trail. do not listen to any so called elder statesman's opinion about what YOU are doing. most likely if it doesn't make sense to the previous generation then they are too old to get it. and they allowed time to get the best of them.. and they have not earned your respect . I never want to be an elder statesman or royalty of anything. most likely that palace burned to the ground many years ago.. the future punks and poets are the ones that create something new. if there are young kids practicing in the garage, turn that garage into a gig and invite all your friends. if you have a microphone and GarageBand or a cassette tape. record it and make it your album.. if you get sick of reading about opinions and bands you don't like, start your own fanzine and speak your truth. if someone tells you your not good enough. tell them they were never invited and do it anyway. many people have a war story but most of them have never seen war.. just be true to yourself. as I know you do.. I love all the green day fans because they have passion and desire to live life on their own terms. to be weird and loud and create something new that some people just don't get. and therefore you inspire me more than you think. eternal gratitude rage and love BJ" dear friends "fuck the old generation start something new" we're about to release a new documentary about east bay punk rock.. it's a document about a time in our lives of being young. trying new ideas. and singing along together.. but just remember that this is the past.. if you get anything out of a documentary it should be to start something new and blaze a new trail. do not listen to any so called elder statesman's opinion about what YOU are doing. most likely if it doesn't make sense to the previous generation then they are too old to get it. and they allowed time to get the best of them.. and they have not earned your respect .

Billie Joe to appear on 'Drunk History'? | According to a few photos posted on Instagram today, it appears that Billie Joe will be making an appearance on the Comedy Central show Drunk History. Billie Joe, his wife Adrienne, and actor Tony Hale posted photos today of Billie Joe dressed as Charlie Chaplin with hashtags and mentions relating to the Drunk History TV show. Drunk History features a comedian who will get drunk and (struggle to) recount an event from American history, proving a narration of the event. While the narration is occurring, an actor will enact the narrator's version (often hilarious) of the story and lip sync the dialog. Billie Joe will be playing the role of Charlie Chaplin, a famous actor, filmmaker, and composer who rose to fame during the "silent era" of film. At this point, it not known who the narrator of the episode will be. According to Comedy Central's Drunk History website, the show's next season will begin this October, so we can expect to see Billie Joe's episode this fall. Check out the photos from Billie Joe and Adrienne.
