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.

"Green Day since 1986" taken to Mars by new NASA lander | NASA's latest Mars lander took along some Green Day memorabilia when it launched back in May, and made its successful landing on Mars yesterday. The band shared on Twitter that it also carried a message that said "Green Day Since 1986". Officially landed on Mars ??? "Green Day Since 1986" was etched on a chip on the @NASAInSight Mars Lander that landed at Elysium Planitia today. Out of this world. pic.twitter.com/WwNEKh4nxE? Green Day (@GreenDay) November 26, 2018 NASA offered individuals the ability to have a "boarding pass" sent to a chip on the new lander, and Green Day took them up on the offer. From NASA's FAQ from when they were accepting names. "All submitted names are reviewed, approved and then etched onto a microchip. The microchip is placed aboard the spacecraft, which will land on Mars." As a huge fan of NASA and Green Day, this is the best of both worlds colliding. mehr...
