2003 Cigarettes and Valentines was an unreleased studio album from punk rock band Green Day that would have been the proper follow-up to 2000's Warning. In the summer of 2003, the album was nearly finished when the master recordings of 20 tracks were stolen from the studio. Instead of re-recording the album, the band decided to start from scratch, leading to the creation of American Idiot. 2001 2002 green day played their first ever gig at berkely's own gilman street a venue that is world famous for pretty much pioneering the punk rock scene in california and has been played many world famous punk / punk rock bands such as : the offspring rancid nofx bad religion ramones the side projects foxboro hot tubs the network Genres: New Wave/ punk rock
Years active 2003-2005 (hiatus) Members of The Network include Billie Joe Armstrong, Mike Dirnt, Tré Cool and Jason White, all of whom are most famous for their work as the band Green Day.[1][2][3] The stage names of The Network are Fink, The Snoo, Van Gough, Captain Underpants and Balducci.

Armstrong denies the involvement of any Green Day members in The Network. Although the style of music is different (New Wave as opposed to Green Day's pop-punk style), but Warner/Chappell Music cites the three Green Day members as having writing credits for The Network's album Money Money 2020 Origin San Francisco Bay Area – Oakland, California, United States
Genres Garage punk, rock and roll
Years active 2007–present The Foxboro Hot Tubs is a side project of Green Day. All members of the band perform live with Green Day (with the exception of Kevin Preston) . Their debut album, Stop Drop and Roll!!! was released on April 22, 2008.

As with Green Day's suspected other side project (The Network), Billie Joe Armstrong adopted an alter ego who goes by the name Reverend Strychnine Twitch. In 2008, the band embarked on a small tour in the Bay Area, touring tiny club venues. but how did green day get so gid i hear you ask !!! they made it big through determination , and giving their fans the shows and the music they deserve . not only that but they alway try to make their act new and exciting with every tour , like last tour they invited thier fans onstage to play a few songs with them and some times forming small bands . not only that but they had the incentive to create one of the most popular genre's of music by combining the tempo the harsh riffage of punk with the lyrics and melody to form ..................... pop punk pinhead gunpowder Pinhead Gunpowder is an American punk rock band formed East Bay, California, in 1990. The band has consisted of Aaron Cometbus (drums, lyrics), Bill Schneider (bass), Billie Joe Armstrong (guitar, vocals) and Jason White (guitar, vocals) for the majority of its existence. Mike Kirsch (guitar, vocals) was the original guitarist, in place of White, but left the band citing personal differences with Green Day (the band for which Billie Joe Armstrong is most famous) and their major label debut album Dookie (1994). The band's name comes from a brand of "high octane" green tea served at the Arcata co-op and discovered serendipitously by Aaron Cometbus during one of his many dumpster diving adventures. examples of their work not only that but green day keep their bay area punk sensibilities , even when they hit the big time , in the 90's green day was the voice of the young and the reckless , the children of the damned , they talked about all the things young people wanted to talk about , because they themselves were just kids .
