Green Day is an American punk rock band consisting of the following legends: lead vocalist and guitarist Billie Joe Armstrong, bassist and backing vocalist Mike Dirnt, and drummer Tré Cool.
The band got their start in the San Francisco Bay Area, but it wasn’t long before their name was recognized globally. In a few short years, they became one of the best-selling groups of all time, selling over 75 million albums worldwide.
Since then, their high-octane, punk beat has continued to be music to their audience’s and critics’ ears alike. They’ve piled up five Grammy Awards: Best Alternative Album for Dookie, Best Rock Album for American Idiot, Record of the Year for Boulevard of Broken Dreams, Best Rock Album for the second time for 21st Century Breakdown and Best Musical Show Album for American Idiot: The Original Broadway Cast Recording. In 2010, a stage adaptation of American Idiot debuted on Broadway. The musical was nominated for several Tony Awards, including Best Musical and Best Scenic Design.
