Green Day

Formed:
1989 in San Francisco, CA

Genres:
Post-Punk Resurgence

Green Day's first incarnation was actually called the Sweet Children, which consisted of Billie Joe Armstrong, Mike Dirnt, and a drummer named Jeff Kiffmeyer. After dropping out of high school, Armstrong and Dirnt squatted in an apartment complex and began living the punk lifestyle. The band auditioned for a record label in a shack, where they performed with an electric generator and gave the audience candles for light. The label signed the band, and they released in EP called "Slappy". After touring to promote the album, Kiffmeyer left the band. Armstrong and Dirnt quickly went to see a drummer they'd heard of named Tre Cool. They quickly picked him up and released an album under the name Green Day, to moderate success. In 1994, Green Day switched labels and released "Dookie", which enjoyed worldwide success and thrust Green Day into the limelight. They were invited to play such killer gigs as Woodstock '94 and Lollapalooza. In 1997 and 1998, "Time of Your Life" became a radio monster, not to mention an MTV staple. Although they are constantly plagued by rumours of breakup and chemical dependency, Green Day have already proven themselves to be a Post-Punk force to be reckoned with. Recently, the released a new album called "Warning."
