Few bands boast a history comprised of a revolutionary breakout success, worthy follow-up records, a slight decrease in prosperity, a comeback, a second comeback, a trio of imaginative studio efforts released weeks apart, and a third comeback. And yet, Green Day has experienced all that, and more.
The bombastic trio emerged from the punk scene of East Bay, California. By producing a sound that channeled legendary groups like the Ramones and the Clash, the band gained popularity amongst small venues and bars. After attracting the attention of producer Rob Cavallo, Green Day signed to Reprise Records.
In 1994, Green Day released their major label debut Dookie, and subsequently resurrected the appeal of punk rock in North America. The album was a worldwide commercial and critical success that resonated among a generation that was waiting for something to happen. Today, Dookie continues to stand tall with its Diamond certification as one of the defining album of the 1990s. Even now, you’d be hard-pressed to find someone who didn’t know all the words to “Basket Case”.
Green Day continued their use of infectious three-chord tunes and blatant disregard for conventional practices with albums such as 1995’s Insomniac, 1997’s Nimrod, and 2000’s Warning. Despite attaining admirable levels of success, these albums could not replicate the sheer scope and influence of Dookie.
Then came American Idiot, the rock opera phenomenon that is inarguably recognized as one of the best albums of all time. Most bands struggle to produce a masterpiece during their career; with American Idiot, Green Day produced their second chef-d'oeuvre. Through thirteen masterfully crafted tunes, the band weaved a powerful commentary about political disillusionment and contemporary turmoil. In addition, smash hits like the rowdy “Holiday” and the nine-minute behemoth “Jesus of Suburbia” transformed Armstrong, Dirnt, and Cool into veritable rock stars.
After a lengthy absence, Green Day returned with 2009’s maximalist 21st Century Breakdown. Then, the group released the ¡Uno! ¡Dos! ¡Tré! album trilogy in late-2012. Now, the band is back with Revolution Radio, which represents a welcome return to the raw intensity of their earlier years. Released in October 2016, Revolution Radio is a maelstrom of unrestrained fervor, shaking rage, and pertinent pointedness.
To promote their latest tour-de-force, Green Day will embark on a 24-date North American trek. The band will perform at venues such as London’s Budweiser Gardens, Hamilton’s First Ontario Centre, Montreal’s Bell Centre, and Quebec’s Video Centre. Punk rock group Against Me! will support the band during their extensive tour.
