The Green Day Room
Discography

Punk revivalists in style, the raucous trio from California sold more than six million copies of their major-label debut, Dookie. Although Green Dayís taut, three-minute, guitar-driven songs ably revive the fierceness of the groupís stylistic progenitors (the Clash, the Sex Pistols, the Buzzcocks), punkís original aim -- to annoy, outrage, shock -- is not Green Dayís thing.

Friends since age ten, Billie Joe Armstrong and Mike Dirnt grew up in Rodeo, California. They formed their first real band, Sweet Children, at 14. Tre Cool grew up in remote Mendocino County, California. When they were 17, Green Day recorded their first EP, 1,000 Hours. After winning fans via a nurturing, all-ages hardcore scene in Berkeley and two albums on Lookout, Green Day signed with Reprise in April 1993. Their 1994 release, Dookie, proclaimed the next generation of punk, hitting #2 on the album chart, buoyed by the bandís effervescent presence on MTV and at Lollapalooza and Woodstock Ď94. The band also won the 1994 Best Alternative Music Performance Grammy.

Formed 1989, Berkeley, California
