6 awards for "Boulevard of Broken Dreams"
They have also received 5 Grammy Awards out of 18 nominations
In all they have 11 studio albums
Their first album made was 39/Smooth
As time progressed, their music became something of a classic
Popularly, as most people would agree, their best albums of all time are Dookie, Nimrod, and American Idiot
When it comes to the most admired songs, most fans all time favorite is 'Boulevard of Broken Dreams'
According to reviews, most loved songs come from the album ' American Idiot', including, 'Holiday', 'Wake Me Up When September Ends', 'American Idiot', of course, and many others
A clip of one of Green Days best songs:
International Superhits:
They released it as a compilation of their greatest and most popular hits
They released two new songs made especially for the album
They were called 'Maria' and 'Poprocks & Coke'
They released a video the same day as the album called 'International Supervideos'
All of the band's previous music videos are included on the DVD
It was a great success, it has sold over 3 million copies worldwide since it's release
This is a compilation of music by Green Day not before released to the public
The album also includes covers by the band only played live
They're songs that didn't make it on the albums for any reason
They made this album in honor of Record Store Day 2014
It contains 20 demos including the previously unreleased track called 'State of Shock'
It was created during the band's recording sessions of 'Uno' , 'Dos' , 'Tre' back in 2012
They created the famous and well renowned album into a broadway musical
It encapsulated the angst and paranoia following 9/11, into a bombastic Broadway production
Opened in 2010
It has high-octane rock guitar riffs and all the vigorous singing and dancing is an evergreen narrative of teen rage, love and loss
The main charcaters are Johnny, Will, and Tunny
They mirror and portray Green Day Fans
They're disaffected young men and women feeling tired and stifled in the suburbs
They long for adventure in the city
They attempt to find it through a chaotic milieu in which they grapple with addictions, depression and the national paranoia based from the following of the 9/11 attacks
Calling it a major success in its tribute to the effects of 9/11 would be an understatement
American Idiot was the group's first real critical break
Before that album, critics generally dismissed Green Day
Main Theme:
Cultural identifiers link the musical to a specific era
Like, familiar ominous lines from President George W. Bush floating from the many monitors dotting the stage
The boisterous story of post-adolescent fear and confusion gives "American Idiot" a certain timelessness
Its main theme is mostly the 70's Punk Movement
"The single most exciting and original live rock concert I've eve seen!" - The Stage UK
"An electrifying, relentless onslaught of riotous energy!" - Broadway World West End
"Explosive choreography, blistering vocal performances and simple storytelling make this rock opera a Les Miserables or the post-grunge generation!" - Edinburgh Evening News
"An unexpected triumph!"- The Guardian
