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.

Mystery surrounds new 'leaked' Troubled Times video | A couple of days ago a new video for 'Troubled Times' surfaced when, seemingly out of nowhere, a member shared a link to our forum, GDC. This was BillnTed's first post, accompanied by the caption: "OMG Has anyone else seen this before?  I can't believe it, is this is real?" At first glance, the video seemed to have a fan-made feel, which isn't unusual - in addition to the official lyric video, there are many videos with the title 'Green Day - Troubled Times' available on the internet. Some have translations of the lyrics, while others show a fan's own visual interpretation of the song. This is the first video, however, to feature Billie Joe Armstrong lip-syncing along to the entire song. This footage of Billie, despite having a similar feel to his recent Instagram live videos, hasn't been seen before, which makes it very unlikely that the images were lifted by a fan for use in their own project. It appears to have been recorded using a mobile phone camera, with images of very up-to-date current events placed in the four corners of the screen. You can watch the full video below: While the content of the video suggests it has been produced by the band or, at the very least, by Armstrong himself, the way in which it surfaced has created some uncertainty about just how 'official' the video is. The link shared to our forum is for a Vimeo upload by a user named 'Rev Rad', who joined the video sharing site almost immediately before the video surfaced. It is, unsurprisingly, the user's only video, giving us no further insight into who exactly they are, with that particular username being a potential choice for anyone from a casual Green Day fan to Billie Joe himself. There was certainly no indication that the source was in any way official. With no announcement by the band, many assumed that the video was a leak. However, the video has since been shared twice by the band's official Facebook page. Initially, a post by the 'Green Day Brasil' fan page was shared, with the band later posting the direct Vimeo link. While this provided some reassurance as to the authenticity of the video, it also served to raise further questions: If the video is official, why did it surface on our forum as an anonymous Vimeo link, and not through any of the band's official social media channels? On the other hand, if the video is unofficial or leaked, why has the band shared it on their official Facebook page, seemingly offering an endorsement? What do you think? Is the video official, why has it surfaced in such a mysterious way and, most importantly, what do you think of it? Let us know in the comments, or head over to our forum topic to discuss it in depth with other fans. mehr...

I fucking hate racism more than anything. music and social justice have always gone hand and hand with me. we wouldn't be here if it wasn't for "the time they are a changing" .. some people don't agree. the spirit of green day has always been about rising above oppression. and sticking up for what you believe in and singing it at the top of your lungs. we grew up fearing nuclear holocaust because of the cold war. those days are feeling way too relevant these days. these issues are our ugly past.. and now it's coming to haunt us. always resist these doomsday politicians. and in the words of our punk forefathers .. Nazi punks fuck off. if someone tells you to shut up. tell them to fuck off. life is too short to sit on the sidelines and become complacent. apathy is the kiss of death ps. if you think i'm going to stay quiet and about issues that mean something and "stick to music" then i suggest you go to a different instagram where you feel safe A post shared by Billie Joe Armstrong (@billiejoearmstrong) on Aug 13, 2017 at 12:57am PDT "Omaha!! what a show!

Green Day split with long time manager Pat Magnarella | Variety has reported that Green Day has split from their longtime manager Pat Magnarella. Pat has been with the band for over 20 years, starting back in 1996. I'm incredibly surprised by this news. Story time! Just over 11 years ago (June 2006), I wrote a letter and mailed it off to Warner Bros, asking for some info about a Paris show that was cancelled, but fans were emailing us because they weren't able to get refunds. I wrote them, telling them about GDA, and asking if they could let us know what was going on so we could pass it on to the fans. Pat wrote back with a short email "Andres, Just read your email to Warner?s about Green Day in Paris if you have any questions you can call me, I am Green Day?s manager. Pat Magnarella" I can't tell you how excited I was to get that email. Over the last 11 years, Pat has been incredibly kind toward GDA and fans. When we asked clarification on some news, or asked for stuff to giveaway, he would always reply, even if he couldn't share anything new with us. He was always kind, professional, and succinct. There are so many emails with just single sentence replies, sometimes single word replies. "Yes", "No", "Will update later". They always amused me and I appreciated the directness. It's not clear exactly what brought on this split. I'm sure there's so much that happens behind the scenes that led to this decision. Of course, fans are speculating about what this means going forward. Variety is reporting the band may be signing on with Jonathan Daniel at Crush Music who also represents " Sia, Fall Out Boy, and Lorde, among others." Many fans don't really understand what a manager does. He is basically the business side of Green Day. They're responsible for keeping an eye on the things the band are scheduled to do, making sure they're part of the right deals, making sure they're treated fairly by the people that they work with, or work for them. They have a central role in what Green Day does. In that role, Pat was also executive producer of Green Day's films like Bullet In A Bible, Awesome As Fuck, and Heart Like A Hand Grenade. He also worked with them on Adeline Records. So he's been pretty central to most things Green Day has touched over the last 21 years. What this means for Green Day shall be seen. While I'm sad to see Pat go, considering how kind he was with us and other fans, I'm also looking forward to whatever the band has planned going forward. I can only assume a change in management will be a change in some of the things they do. That could lead to something exciting. For now we send our sincere thanks and appreciation for all Pat has done for us and Green Day fans around the world. Thank you for all you've done for this community the past 11 years. (Yes, you were with the band for 10 years before that, but we're selfish people who only care about the point where we started talking to you). Thanks, and we wish you well! -- Andres mehr...

What other "re-mixed" Green Day songs would you want to see released? | Saturday afternoon before Green Day took at the stage for their hometown show at the Oakland Coliseum in Oakland, California, Billie Joe took to Instagram to partake in yet another Instagram Live video. From the band's back-stage lounge, Billie Joe chatted for a few minutes with his Instagram followers about that night's show. Another topic he briefly discussed was the "Fell For You" remix that the band suddenly released late last week. Billie Joe mentions that there are "going to be more remixes coming, which will be fun." So yay! What other songs would you like to see re-mixed and released? It would be cool if the band put out an EP of these of songs from all album eras. Though, personally, I would like to hear more Trilogy songs re-mixed in a similar style as "Fell For You" that gives the songs harder guitars and a more complex sound, rather than simple drums, bass, guitar, and vocals. What do you want to hear? Let us know in the comments. Check out the video clip below of Billie Joe mentioning the additional remixes. On an Instagram live video just now @BJAofficial mentions there are more re-mixed Green Day songs coming pic.twitter.com/i3Txug7UU9— Matt Chinander (@chinanderm) August 5, 2017 mehr...

Green Day's re-mix of "Fell For You" now available on iTunes, Spotify across the world | Thursday afternoon, Billie Joe announced that Green Day have put together and would be releasing a re-mix of their track "Fell For You" on Friday. The day has come and the song has released across the world on the normal music platforms. The track sounds like it has the same recordings as the version from ¡UNO!, however some new guitars have been added and the rest of the instruments have been, as Billie Joe said, re-mixed, most notably Tré's drums. Check out the track on iTunes & Apple Music, Spotify, or Google Play and let us know what you think in the comments! Do you hope to see more songs re-mixed and released? I'm hoping for "Stay the Night". mehr...

Green Day to release a new mix of "Fell For You" tomorrow | How random is this? Billie Joe has announced on his Instagram account that Green Day will be releasing a new mix of the band's track "Fell For You" tomorrow. The remix, titled "Otis Mix", will be a new mix of the song originally on 2012's ¡UNO!. It is unknown at this point what the remix entails but the name indicates it was mixed at the band's studio "Otis" where they recorded Revolution Radio. Billie Joe specifically mentions Spotify as the release medium but we'll definitely deep an eye out on Apple Music and iTunes as well for those who don't subscribe to Spotify. coming friday on the spotify! we did a new "remix" of "Fell For You"! check it out A post shared by Billie Joe Armstrong (@billiejoearmstrong) on Aug 3, 2017 at 12:00pm PDT mehr...
