Green Day

Green Day is an American rock band formed in 1987. It was composed of Billie Joe Armstrong (vocals/guitar), Mike Dirnt (bass guitar/vocals), and Tre Cool (drums/percussion). Green Day's sound is often compared to first wave punk bands such as the Ramones, The Clash, Sex Pistols, The Jam, and the Buzzcocks. The majority of their song catalog is composed of distorted guitar, fast, manic drums, and relatively high-treble bass. Most of their songs are fast-paced and under four minutes. Billie Joe Armstrong has mentioned that some of his biggest influences are seminal alternative rock bands Hüsker Dü and The Replacements, and that their influence is particularly noted in the band's chord changes in songs.
