Hello and welcome to the Official Green Day Thread v4.0. This is a place for new fans, old fans, and even potential fans to come together and discuss our favorite trio. Yes, you heard me...this thread is meant for fans of all kinds. Even if you've only heard a few songs, but are interested in learning more about Green Day from some of the more seasoned fans, this is the place to come. So, please read and follow the rules and enjoy yourselves in The Official Green Day Thread.

Some of our regulars like to get off-topic when nothing new and interesting is going on. If you want to talk with Green Day fans about things unrelated to Green Day, please use The Official Off-Topic Thread. It's there for a reason.


Special thanks to Zodokai for setting up the front page, and letting me use it again for this thread!

Please read and follow the rules as they will be enforced.

If you fail to comply with the rules, I will send you a warning via PM. If you still fail to comply with the rules, depending on the crime I will ban you from the thread either temporarily or possibly even permanently.



No Flaming. We all understand that Green Day might not be one of your favorite bands, but please do not come in here and just flame them. If you wish to post some reasons for disliking them and then hang around to have an intelligent discussion, we'd be more than happy to have you. This also goes for the more seasoned fans...do not flame Green Day newbies. They are people too, and hopefully we can help turn them into seasoned fans as well.

No Bumping. Even if this thread falls off of the first few pages, there shall be no bumping whatsoever. If you want to bring the thread back to the first page, why don't you start a conversation pertaining to Green Day?

No Spamming. This has been a major issue in the past few threads and will not be tolerated here. We don't care what you had for breakfast. We don't need you to post random lyrics...most of us already know them. We also don't need nonsensical chatter, meaning don't just post "hi" or "I'm back." If you feel the need to say those things, make sure you have them in a post that also has something to do with Green Day. And by this, I don't mean just posting a picture of one of the guys, or saying what song you're listening to. You should take part in whatever Green Day conversation is going on.

No Quote Pyramids. Please don't continue to quote others. A few quotes every now and then are fine...just don't have giant quote pyramids. Just quote whatever you are directly responding to.

Do Not Post About How "Hott" the Band Members Are. This is the music forum after all, so let's try to keep the conversations on the music. Please go to the Celebrities Forum for discussion soley focused on the members.

Do Not Stretch The Page. So, do not post anything that will stretch the page. Mainly, this has to do with pictures of the guys, but if you really want to show us some specific picture, but it's too big, please resize it or just post a link to it. That way we can enjoy the picture as well as keep the thread neat.

Be Literate. Try to refrain from using chatspeak/1337. Not only does it make it more difficult for us to understand what you are saying, but it makes you look rather ignorant. A mistake every once in a while isn't the end of the world, but please try spell and punctuate correctly.

No Hit And Runs. What's the point of coming in and posting that "Green Day rocks!" and then leaving? We already know that they rock and you don't contribute to any conversation...so this would be considered spam.

No Fighting. I didn't think that I'd need to explain this, but oh well. No fighting. This means no fighting with spammers. Just explain the rules to them and drop it or ignore them all together. But most of all, no fighting amongst each other. If you create problems and disrupt other people from enjoying the thread, you will be banned from it. If somebody is causing a problem, use the nifty little "report post" button.

No Off-topic Chatter. Even if you're talking about something somewhat Green Day related, you're most likely stretching it. I understand you want to talk to all of your friends in the thread, but we need to keep spam out of the thread.
Redirect all off-topic chatter to the The Official Green Day Thread's Official Off-Topic Thread

Q: So...what was wrong with the other Official Green Day Threads?
A: The other threads were so full of spam, it pushed out actual Green Day discussion. It was actually so bad, that many people gave up on the threads and stopped posting at them. Not only that, but previous thread creators had difficulties with the thread, lost interest in it and the band, or didn't have time to monitor the thread any longer.

Q: I'm confused. This thread looks almost exactly the same as the last one. Why?
A: Zodokai did not have enough time to check up on the thread anymore due to school. We thought it would be a good idea to have somebody else in control, as the thread creator has the power to ban people from the thread. Also, when you tell somebody they're breaking the rules, you're less likely to get a smartass reply when you're the thread creator. Besides, Zodokai did a great job on setting up the first page and spent a lot of time on it. She said it was okay with her if I used it as well.

Q: I've only heard a few songs... but when I tried to post in the other threads, I got yelled at.
A: Fear not. If you are serious about wanting to learn about Green Day and follow the rules, you are most definitely welcomed here. Just, try to be literate and possibly post some reasons why you like Green Day so far. Also, stating that you want to learn more about the band wouldn't hurt. Also, be sure to stick around and come back often.

Q: I have a question about Green Day... can you help me out?
A: Of course. You can just post your question and chances are, at least one person currently online will have the answer. And if not, we'll try and help you out in finding that answer.

Q: You can't be serious about the banning thing, right?
A: Yes. Depending on my mood I may give you a few chances before I ban you. However, if you are cooperative and comply with the rules in the first place, hopefully it won't get that far. If you get a warning, please take it seriously, and don't give me s**t. It will only result in getting banned longer.

Q: Green Day is such a horrible band. I can't believe you like them!
A: You're entitled to your own opinion, as am I. But, if you don't have any real reasons or the desire to discuss your opinion, please do us all a favor and take it to the Hate Sticky.

Q: OMG! Billy Joe is so hott!
A: Please direct your attention to the Celebrity Forum. And next time, I suggest you read the rules.

Q: I know of a single, compilation, etc. that you're missing. What should I do?
A: Just PM me with the title, track list, and if possible, a picture of it and I'll update the thread.


Got a question that you think should go in the FAQ? PM it to me.

What's your favorite Green Day song?
Favorite album?
Favorite member?
Favorite music video?
Favorite video director?
What's the first song you heard?
Any new or interesting Green Day news?
Did you go to one of their concerts?
Have you met any of the guys?
Any autographs?
What would you say to the guys if you met them?



Good Example
Hi. My name is _____. I've only been listening to Green Day for a little while and I only have American Idiot, but I just can't stop listening to it. I've noticed that they've been around for a while and I want to learn some more about them and listen to their older stuff. Do you have any suggestions for albums I should try and get? My current favorite song is St. Jimmy and I only have American Idiot, so that would be my favorite album. I really like the Holiday video...but the other ones I've seen are good too. I really like Billie Joe, but not because of his looks. I admire his songwriting and guitar playing skills and he has inspired me to learn guitar. So, I'd really appreciate it if somebody could help me on my way to getting into their older stuff. Thanks.




Bad Example
OMG!!!111 I luv greendey so much. Billy jOe is so hottt!!!!


Reminder: The above suggestions are not meant to be a form. Merely ideas off which you should base your own discussions.

5/15/09: 21st Century Breakdown comes out.


I am not the best at keeping up to date as I don't always check the websites. Many of the regulars are often one step ahead of me with things like this. Please keep me notified (either through posting on the thread or PMing me) of what's going on with the band. This includes when they're going to be on TV (mostly new things...I don't need to know when "Loaded" is going to be on, or any specials shown fairly often), when they're touring and any other special events or information.

Billie Joe Armstrong and Mike Dirnt are the actual founders of the band Sweet Children, which we know today as Green Day. When they were ten years old (1982), the duo met in the cafeteria of John Sweet High School in Crockett, California. During sleepovers at each other's houses, they played songs by old heavy metal warhorses such as Ozzy Osbourne, Def Leppard, and Van Halen. Other influences would be the "thrash and drang" of the Bay Area's alternative music culture percolating throughout the eighties. Clubs such as Mabuhay Gardens and Berkeley's 924 Gilman Street regularly showcased local groups like the Dead Kennedys and Buck Naked. Billie Joe was 14 when he wrote his first song, "Why Do You Want Him?", a song about his mother and stepfather. In 1987, Billie Joe and Mike recruited drummer John Kriftmeyer (aka Al Sobrante) and formed the band Sweet Children. They played their first official gig at Rod's Hickory Pit in Vallejo, CA. Soon, they started playing at clubs on the infamous Gilman Street in Berkeley, CA.

As Green Day, they recorded their first EP, 1,000 Hours, in two days when they were 17 and seniors in high school. Soon, Mike graduated, however Billie Joe dropped out one day prior to his 18th birthday. They followed up the 1,000 Hours EP with numberous pressings of the "Sweet Children" EP, and also the "Slappy" EP. Their official debut album came in 1990, a combination of all the previous EP, and named "1039 Smoothed Out Slappy Hours". The album was released by local indie label Lookout! Records. Soon after, John Kriftmeyer decided to leave the band to presue college, so Billie and Mike recruited Gilman Street vetran, Tre Cool. Tre had been playing in the band, The Lookouts!, since he was 12. Members of The Lookouts include Lawrence Livermore, the owner of Lookout! Records. In 1991, Tre debuted on Green Day's second album, "Kerpunk!".

Green Day built its following the old-fashioned way -- they earned it. Before they even hooked up with a major label, the band had already completed five national tours, driving their renovated bookmobile (with Tre's father at the wheel) coast to coast and crashing on friends' and fan's floors. After capturing the attention of producer Rob Cavallo of Reprise Records. Faced with a hard choice, the guys decided to sign onto a major label in April 1993, and soon started recorded the album that would through them into stardom, 1994's "Dookie".

Pandemonium struck when their Reprise debut, "Dookie", was released and Green Day introduced an ever-expanding audience to the energy and insanity of punk rock. With the 14 loud'n'fast tunes of "Dookie" clocking in at only 39 minutes, 1993 suddenly sounded more like 1977. Soon, Green Day's songs about picking scabs, pyromania and masturbation had become unofficial national anthems. Green Day was singing about its own distinct form of malcontent, but it seemed there was a world of followers who felt their pain and wanted to laugh --and mosh -- along with it. Immaturity was cool again. "Dookie" went on to sell more than 10 million copies in the U.S. alone, and Green Day won a Grammy in 1994 for "Best Alternative Music Performance." Of course, this led some of the gang back on Gilman Street to cry "sell-out" and "mainstream," but one listen to Green Day and you'd know this wasn't some watered- down white-bread punk designed to impress your parents.

On their next few albums, "Insomniac" and "Nimrod", Green Day has managed to stay true to the punk attitude while proving they're not just one-trick ponies or even three-chord monkeys. On Nimrod, note the surf-style instrumental, "Last Ride," and the string section of "Good Riddance (Time of Your Life)", which was featured prominently on an episode of ER and the final installment of Seinfield. By this time, the members were starting families, and it was becoming apparent that they were maturing as individuals and as a band. They wanted to take some time off to be with their families and enjoy life. So after the success of "Good Riddance (Time of Your Life)", Green Day took a two year break.

In 2000, Green Day hit the music scene once again with their album "Warning". The album is a different sound for the band, a more mellow punk if you will. Unfortunatly, the album wasn't very well accepted by critics and fans alike. The biggest hit from the album was the song "Minority".

So after another four years with a few tours and a couple of compliation albums (International Superhits! in 2001 and Shenanigans in 2002), but no new material from Green Day, fans were hit with the September 2004 released of "American Idiot", an album which lashes out against the American government and the media. "American Idiot" was the first Green Day ever to debut at #1 on the Billboard Charts, and other music charts around the world. The album's title track, was an instant success. The follow up single, "Boulevard of Broken Dreams" experienced a must greater success. "American Idiot" was nominated for seven Grammy awards, and took home one, "Best Rock Album". The release and success of this album proved that Green Day are indeed the biggest rock band in the world.

So do you have the time to listen to me whine? We still answer with a resounding yes.

Billie Joe Armstrong was brought into this world on February 17, 1972, the youngest of six children. His father, Andy, was a part time jazz musician and a truck driver for Safeway, while his mother was a waitress at a local resturant named Rod's Hickory Pit. Billie started singing when he was just 5 years old. He would go around to hospitals and sing to the patients to make them feel better. Then he got to record his first song, "Look for Love" at a local recording company named Fiat Records. Billie got his first electric guitar, the infamous "Blue" (a Fernandes Stratocaster), when he was 11. Billie still uses Blue to this day and has several replicas of it. At the age of 10, Billie's father died of cancer to the esophagus which spread throughout his body. His mother continued to work at Rod's Hickory Pit (a barbecue joint owned by Richard and Alice Cotton) in Vallejo, California, to support herself and her six kids. Billie Joe and Mike later worked there as busboys. Two years after the death of his father, his mother remarried to a man that Billie and his siblings detested.
Billie was 10 when he met Mike Dirnt in the school cafeteria in 1982. During sleepovers at each other's houses, they played songs by old heavy metal warhorses such as Ozzy Osbourne, Def Leppard, and Van Halen. Other influences would be the "thrash and drang" of the Bay Area's alternative music culture percolating throughout the eighties. Clubs such as Mabuhay Gardens and Berkeley's 924 Gilman Street regularly showcased local groups like the Dead Kennedys and Buck Naked. He wrote his first song, "Why Do You Want Him", a song about his mother and his step father, when he was 14. At the age of 15, Billie, Mike, and a drummer named John formed a punk band and named themselves Sweet Children. Their first gig was actually at Rod's Hickory Pit. One day before his 18th birthday, and halfway through his senior year of high school, Billie dropped out of high school (Pinole Valley High School) to devote all his time to Sweet Children. He knew what he wanted to do -- play music, and school was just getting in the way. At this point, Billie had the nickname "Two Dollar Bill", referring to the price of the joints he sold.

In 1990, John left the band to attend college. Billie and Mike were faced with the task of finding a new drummer. They knew the perfect fit, Tre Cool, a Gilman Street vetran, who was then playing in the Lookouts. Later, Sweet Children was renamed Green Day. Before they knew it, they were traveling all over the country in an old bookmobile with Tre's dad at the wheel. They did all this with little money and staying at fan's houses. It was in Minneapolis in 1990 when Billie first laid eyes on his future wife, a girl named Adrienne Nesser. They dated awhile and then were married on July 2, 1994, a 5 minute ceremony. The day after their wedding, Adrienne found out she was pregnant. Their son, Joseph Marcicano Armstrong, was born in March of 1995. Three years later on September 12, 1998, another boy, Jakob Danger was added to the Armstrong family. Today, Billie, Adrienne, Joseph, and Jakob reside in Berkeley, California.

Michael Ryan Pritchard, now known as Mike Dirnt, was born on May 4, 1972. Mike's mother was a heroin addict. He was given up for adoption when he was a baby, to a Native american mother and a white father. When he was 7, his adoptive parents got a divorce. Mike lived with his father for awhile, but confrontations sent him back to his mother. He lived there on the borderline of proverty, while his sister left home at the age of 13. "There were all sorts of things happening," says Mike. "When I was in fourth or fifth grade, my mom stayed out all night, came home the next day with a guy, and he moved in. I'd never met the guy before, and all of a sudden he's my stepdad. We didn't get along for years. Later on, when I hit high school, my mom moved away from us, and me and my stepdad got real close. He instilled a lot in me. The one thing my family did give me is blue-collar morals. But then he died when I was 17."

By that point, Mike had already moved out, leaving home when he was 15 to live out of his truck. He then rented a room in Billie's house, and later he lived in a punk squatter building. Billie and Mike began living for their weekends at the Gilman Street Project. Mike still continued to go to school, play in Sweet Children (which later became Green Day of course), and live on his own. He supported himself by working as a cook. Mike almost didn't graduate from high school, because his mother refused to sign one of his mandatory-attendance forms. "I took my mom aside," Mike says. "I said, 'This is how it is. You have so much s**t going on in your life, so if once every semester you ask me if I've done my homework and jump all over my case, that's not right. Have I failed yet? No. And I'm going to graduate if you stay off my back. The one time in your life you chose to have morals, and it's going to ******** me up. Don't play mom once a year. It doesn't ******** cut it.'" In the end, Mike did graduate from high school, and he even took more than a year's worth of courses at a community college. Then Billie and Mike moved into a squat in Oakland, California (the inspiration for "Welcome to Paradise" wink .


Mike married his long time girlfriend Anastasia in 1996 and their daughter, Estella-Desiree was born in April 1997. Mike loves his daughter very much, and his nickname for her is "Hero". Today, Mike and Anastasia are separated, but still remain very good friends. He recently was remarried in 2004, however his wife left him because he spending too much time in the studio recording American Idiot. Mike is currently dating, and he resides in Oakland, California. He also owns a cafe/resturant named Rudy?s Can?t Fail Cafe after a song by the Clash. The cafe is located in Emeryville, CA.

HOMETOWN: Willits, California, USA
EYE COLOR: Blue
NATURAL HAIR COLOR: Brown

CHILDREN: Ramona, born January 1995 to ex-wife, Lisea Lyons; Frankito ("Little Frank" ), born 2001 to Claudia.

Frank Edwin Wright III was born December 9, 1972 in Frankfurt, Germany, making him the youngest member of Green Day. He lived in the Mendocino mountains, California with his dad and his 2 older siblings. His dad, a helicopter pilot in Vietnam, decided the move the family there to insulate them upon his return to the United States. Tre's closest neighbor was none other than Lookout! Records owner Lawrence Livermore, who also owned the punk band the Lookouts. At age 12, Livermore recruited Tre to join The Lookouts, and that's when Livermore gave him the name of Tre Cool (which means Very Cool in French). After Green Day's first tour around the country (following the release of 39/Smooth), John Kriftmeyer decided to leave Green Day. Looking no farther than Gilman Street, Billie Joe and Mike recruited Tre, who was already a 5 year veteran of the Gilman Street scene.
Tre decided to drop out of high school his sophmore year. However, he did pass an equivalency test and earned his GED, and he even began taking classes at a nearby community college. He had to drop out of college however, when the demands of Green Day's touring intensified. Tre's father, who owns a small trucking company, overhauled a used bookmobile, and even served as the driver on three seperate tours. "I watched them go from a bunch of kids to a group of musicians with work eithic," says Tre's father, Frank Wright. "On their first tour or two, it was more of a party than anything else. I still scratch my head and say, 'How in the hell did they make it?' They used to practice in my living room here -- a lot of the songs they did on Dookie. You hear it coming together, and you don't expect people are going to go out and buy it. But when it does, you just say, 'Wow, that's so cool.'"

Tre had a daughter named Ramona in January of 1995, then he married his long time girlfriend Lisea Lyons in March. Him and Lisea are divorced now, but Tre remarried in May of 2000, to Claudia. Claudia and him have a son named Frankito, which means "Little Frank". Tre and Claudia divorced in 2003, but they still live together with Frankito in Oakland, California. Recently, Tre has been linked to Donna C., drummer of The Donnas, however they are no longer together.
