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.

Listen to Jesse Malin and Billie Joe Armstrong's new song 'Strangers & Thieves' | Jesse Malin?s new song ?Strangers & Thieves? featuring Billie Joe Armstrong and Lucinda Williams is finally here! Check it out below and purchase it here. During a Rolling Stone interview, Malin talks about working with Armstrong saying: ??Strangers & Thieves?? started as a song I had for a fun side project with the guys in Green Day called Rodeo Queens. Lucinda heard the song and felt it really fit in with Sunset Kids. I had the music and lines for a chorus. One day, Billie Joe Armstrong was in town, and it was one of those nostalgic Sundays, where we walked around looking at all the old sites, like the A7 club, which is now Niagara, and CBGB?s, now the Varvatos store, and the old Rat Cage Records spot,? Malin tells Rolling Stone. ?A couple days later,? he continues, ?Billie Joe sent me a text with the finished song. He kept a couple of the lines I had for the choruses, and wrote lyrics about the Bay Area scene through his eyes, a scene that was very parallel to my experiences in New York. Somehow, we all found each other, just being outcasts looking for real music and like-minded trouble.? The track appears on Malin?s new album, Sunset Kids, out August 30th. Pre-order a copy here. What do you think about the new song? Share your thoughts on the Green Day Community forum! mehr...
