About Green Day

It was back when you were sporting your heavy duty walkman, scuffed Vans sneakers, and a worn band t-shirt. Dookie was the album, and "Basketcase" would be your mantra. Well this post-punk revival band is still here and hasn't lost an ounce of street cred and luckily, Green Day tickets are on sale right now.

Singer Billie Joe Armstrong and Mike Dirnt have been friends since the tender age of 10, the two formed their first band Sweet Children at 14. At 17, the two recorded their first EP under the name Green Day with drummer John Kiffimeyer and the punk record label Lookout in 1989. A year later, the band released its first full length album 39/Smooth inspired by Cali-punk band Operation Ivy. After the first Green Day tour, Kiffimeyer left the band to pursue school and was replaced by current drummer Tre Cool.

1992 saw the release of Kerplunk which built a strong fan base in Berkeley where fans regularly bought tickets and attended concerts. The album became one of the biggest selling independent albums to date and caught the attention of a few major record labels. Green Day was soon signed to Reprise Records and released Dookie, their major mainstream breakthrough record in 1994.

"Longview,""Basketcase" and "When I Come Around" would blast through speakers around the country as the world began to fall for the relatively new pop punk genre. Green Day concerts at Lollapalooza and Woodstock would further propel them into the mainstream as the demand for Green Day tickets skyrocketed. Some hardcore fans didn't like the change, most embraced it - the album even won a Grammy Award for Best Alternative Music performance that year.

1995's follow-up album, Insomniac, would not chart as well as Dookie despite the positive critical reception. Rolling Stone had this to say about the album - "In punk the good stuff actually unfolds and gains meaning as you listen without sacrificing any of its electric, haywire immediacy. And Green Day are as good as this stuff gets." Warning, Green Day's 2000 release was considered a commercial letdown, but due to the band's popularity on the concert circuit, fans still poured into stadiums with their Green Day tickets.

After a relatively extended break, American Idiot was released in 2004. This multi-platinum album returned to the bread-and-butter of Green Day's style- pure punk. The band was careful to insert melodies with political overtones and a healthy balance of playful pop, and it worked. All five singles "American Idiot," "Holiday," "Jesus of Suburbia," "Wake Me Up When September Ends," and "Boulevard of Broken Dreams" were hits making tickets one of the most sought after concert tickets that year.

After a long Green Day tour, the band recorded a cover of "The Saints Are Coming" by new wave/punk rockers The Skids with U2 in honor of musicians affected by Hurricane Katrina in 2006 before focusing their attention on respective side projects. Well the break is over kids, and tickets are going on sale soon. Green Day also released their eighth studio album, 21st Century Breakdown, in May of 2009 and produced the Broadway show American Idiot. Revolution Radio is the band's 2016 album that has sparked their new tour, causing another wave of Green Day fandom.
