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.

The Green Day Authority

Rolling Stone names 'Dookie' the best alternative album of 1994 | DookieRolling Stone has counted down the top 40 best mainstream alternative albums of 1994 and Green Day's Dookie has made the list. Dookie comes in at number one on the countdown, ahead of albums from Weezer, Soundgarden, and the Offspring, among others, claiming the top spot as mainstream alternative's best album of 1994 - a year which Rolling Stone claims as mainstream alternative's greatest. "These nagging brats were here to spill hair dye on your living room carpet. Tré Cool's stop-start drum swats, Mike Dirnt's back-talk bass melodies, Billie Joe Armstong's nuanced machine-gun chording ? each element in these 15 simple little tunes (save the goof bonus track) had a twitchy precision that'd get a fancier band called 'arty.'" Rolling Stone goes on to talk a little bit more the album, specifically targeting "Longview," "Basket Case," and "Welcome to Paradise." Green Day's bit and the rest of the list can be found over on Rolling Stone's website here. Thanks to Jonah for sending this news in mehr...

GDA Review: 'Demolicious' is the raw Green Day sound we love | Demolicious is out today!Today marks the international release of Green Day's latest project, Demolicious, an album of demos stemming from the trilogy they started working on more than two years ago. As a matter of fact, it was exactly two years ago on April 11th that Billie Joe announced the trilogy on Twitter and the announcement video was released. Now we're getting an 18 track album gives us a glimpse of the unpolished sound Green Day puts forward as they work out the tracks and prep them for their journey into the final form of a cleaned up mixed and mastered Green Day album. It's not very often that Green Day fans get to hear the different stages of a song before the final polish is added. It inevitably leads to conversation of comparison between the two versions of the songs and makes you wonder "why did they remove that" or "why did they change the lyrics here?" Demolicious opens up with a very powerful version of "99 Revolutions", a perfect opener with one solid statement that stays true throughout most of Demolicious, holy shit those guitars sound great. The song feels louder, the guitars sound stronger and not as clean or perfect as on the final version. I immediately think back to a picture Billie posted on Instagram from their studio after the albums were released with the hashtag #reallyloudguitars. Yes, give me more of that. Here's a little sample between the two versions, it starts with the album version, then goes into the Demolicious version. Your browser doesn't support streaming audio. The trilogy albums had a clean sound to them compared to previous Green Day albums, even more so when compared to the large anthemic guitar sounds of American Idiot and 21st Century Breakdown. Green Day's guitars always felt like they could fill the whole room, and on the trilogy, they mostly felt constrained. This was probably one the most common criticisms I saw from fans when talking about the trilogy. The demos give us a taste of the loud dirty guitars that so many of us love. Green Day practicing in their studioSome time back Mike Dirnt posted on Instagram, "This is how Uno, Dos, and Tre would have sounded if we were still on Lookout. I love it! ", and there's definitely that feeling reminiscent of the Kerplunk and 39/Smooth days. It's rough, it's not perfect, but it has some character to it in a way that makes you feel like you've been invited to listen to Green Day in their practice space. I've seen comments from fans who have said things like "if they released this album it would have done better than the trilogy" or some variation on that. There are a lot of variables playing in to our perception of what this album is or what could have been. Right now we're comparing it to the versions we got two years ago, and I'll say I like most of these over their more polished counterparts, mostly because the guitars are louder and I like the gritty sound. It's impossible to know how people would have perceived an album like this if this was how we got it the first time around. However, a benefit of someone finding and listening to Demolicious for the first time is that it's so much easier to digest 17 songs at a time than it was 37, which we got over the few months the trilogy was released. Many fans have their ideal track-list from the trilogy with the songs they love the most ("Lazy Bones" better be at the top of everyone's list). Billie Joe with his acoustic guitar on stage. Nov 2013Reactions that we've seen so far have been pretty much mostly positive. The few negative reactions were from people who were never fans of the trilogy songs and felt there was no way to improve them. Nearly everyone else seems to feel like Demolicious is an album presenting these songs in a more approachable and engaging way. For example, the acoustic version of "Stay the Night." It's one of the few songs on the album that steps away from the louder guitars and it's only Billie Joe and his guitar on the track. Billie is singing a bit higher and softer than in the two versions that feature the whole band. To me, that song feels like a whole different song in that tone. It feels more personal, there's almost a vulnerability in it. It goes from a song saying "hey baby, stay over" to a much more poignant "don't leave me alone." I love it. My only criticism on Demolicious is the lower quality of a few songs, including the new track "State of Shock". Yes, I'm aware it's a demo album and all that, but the difference in quality going from "Carpe Diem" to "State of Shock" and "Let Yourself Go" is a bit startling. It's not like jumping down to iPhone quality, it's just enough of a drop to make them stand out like a sore thumb. My best guess is that these were recorded outside of their Jingletown Studios, where I assume the majority of the demos were made. But in the grand-scheme of what this release is meant to be, that's not a major issue. I'm the kind of fan who loves to see behind the scenes. Whether it's making-of documentaries like Cuatro or even a blooper reel from a movie or series that I love. While a finished product can be ingested as a singular piece of art, there's something satisfying to me to see the process of how it's made or how it came to be. I think that's what I like most about Demolicious. It gives us a peek at what Green Day sounds like unfiltered when they're not in front of an audience. It's like finding out a model you find attractive is even more attractive without the pound of makeup and photoshop touch-ups. I'm happy Green Day decided to release this, and now I'm curious as ever what kind of mindset they're in as they start writing for their next project. Written by @andresgda mehr...

Billie Joe and The Replacements play set together at Coachella | Billie performing with The Replacments.Billie Joe played as an unannounced guest with The Replacements at Coachella last night. Turns out that the lead singer hurt his back, so they recruited Billie to fill in for the night, while The Replacements lead singer sat at the side of the stage watching the show. Seeing that the show ended only a few hours ago, we don't have many videos of the show yet. You can view the ones we do have below. Billie Joe has been a massive fan of The Replacements and has even covered their songs live in concert on a few different occasions (Bastard of Young, If Only You're Lonely). We can only imagine what was going through his head when he was asked to do. I guess you could say Billie was a replacement in The Replacements. mehr...

Artist of 'Demolicious' cover talks about his experience drawing the artwork | Demolicious early draftTom Neely, the comic book artist who drew the cover for Demolicious, recently posted on his website a blog entry about his experience designing and drawing the artwork for the upcoming Green Day demos album, out tomorrow. Tom explains Mike originally contacted him about drawing the artwork as he was a big fan of Tom's comic Henry & Glenn. He also speaks quite a bit about his constant back and forth communication with the band, mostly Mike, approving designs, drawings, colors, and more. "I got a call from Mike Dirnt on a Wednesday morning while I was driving to the comic shop. We were talking about comics and stuff and then he mentioned that they have a record coming out for Record Store Day and 'We don?t have a cover yet. Do you wanna do it? It needs to be done Monday.'" Tom goes on to discuss his three different designs, two the band came up with and one he himself did - the one the band ended up choosing. He also mentions and shows the various color schemes that were considered, including a red-tinted version. Tom's entire post is a really good read and gives a cool insight into the process behind the design and drawing of the album's cover. The post can be read over on Tom's website.
