FameRank: 10

"Green Day" is an American punk rock band formed in 1986 by lead vocalist and guitarist Billie Joe Armstrong and bassist and backing vocalist Mike Dirnt. For much of their career the band has been a trio with drummer Tré Cool. In 2012 guitarist and backing vocalist Jason White (musician)/Jason White became a full member after playing in the band as a session and touring guitarist for 13 years. Cool replaced former drummer John Kiffmeyer in 1990, prior to the recording of the band's second studio album, Kerplunk (album)/Kerplunk (1992).

Green Day was originally part of the punk scene at the DIY 924 Gilman Street club in Berkeley, California. The band's early releases were from the independent record label Lookout! Records. In 1994, its major label debut Dookie released through Reprise Records became a breakout success and eventually sold over 10 million copies in the U.S. Green Day was widely credited, alongside fellow Punk rock in California/California punk bands Sublime (band)/Sublime, Bad Religion, the The Offspring/Offspring, and Rancid (band)/Rancid, with popularizing and reviving mainstream interest in punk rock in the United States.

(When asked in 1992 where they would be in years time)Billie Joe: I'm going to point a gun at Tré, Tré will point a gun at Mike and Mike will point a gun at me. Mike: We're going to count to 3 then pull the trigger.

"when some people talk to me, I can hardly wait for them to shut up. Like shut up, your a moron, I have nothing to say to you" -Billie Joe (my God).

Billie Joe: "Do you have a problem? I have a gun. I'll shoot you. No problem."

Never run in the rain with you're socks on.

"There's nothing wrong with being a loser, it just depends on how good you are at it." (as said by Billie Joe).

I beg to dream and differ from the hollow lies.

Minority is about being an individual. It's like you have to sift through the darkness to find your place and be that individual you want to be your entire life.

Billie-Joe: When someone is in a car accident and they're driving at 100 mph, drunk, who's tape do you think he's listening to at that time? Think about it.

Tré on MTV: I don't see anything on it, all I see is shows. There is never anything on it. Just MTV talking about how cool MTV is.
