History of Green Day: Profile of the 'American Idiot' Punk Band

History of Green Day: Profile of the 'American Idiot' Punk Band Hailing from California, Green Day is a punk band that formed in 1987. Today, the line-up consists of vocalist Billie Joe Armstrong, bassist Mike Dirnt and drummer Tre Cool. After gaining steam on the underground punk circuit, the band had a huge independent smash with "Kerplunk." They broke through to the mainstream with "Dookie," and since then they’ve made a name for themselves as one of the biggest bands to come out of the '90s. Their largest smash to date was the 2004 record "American Idiot," and in 2012, they began a staggered release of the "Uno! Dos! Tre!" trilogy, proving they were still relevant after decades in the biz. In this video, WatchMojo.com learns more about the history of Green Day.
