Green Day has been one of the most famous bands since they first made a breakthrough in the mid 90s. They have been a band much longer than that, having formed in 1987. But they didn’t achieve wide fame until their major label debut “Dookie”, which was helped by MTV’s frequent playing of the music. This is how it became widely popular and people began to really like this group. Back then, they were considered an Alternative band, but since then they have shifted into a more mainstream rock style. In all this time, they’ve sold more than 65 million albums worldwide and won 3 Grammy Awards. In about 10 days, they will be releasing a new album called “21st Century Breakdown” which they describe as being more religious in style than their previous work. It includes homages to Bruce Springsteen, Bob Dylan, the Beatles and many other major figures in the rock world over the last several decades. This summer they will be performing all over the country in support of this new album and their music in person is much more fun than just listening to it on speakers.
