Poll: What’s the Best Green Day Song? – Vote Now
Each week, we’ll be asking you to choose your favorite track from a list of 10 of the biggest songs from the next Artist of the Week's catalog.
You'll have until Friday at noon ET to cast your votes. We’ll then play the three tracks with the most votes during Loudwire Nights' Artist of the Week block to start the following Monday's show!
This week our featured artist is Green Day, one of the biggest bands of the American punk revival in the 1990s.
Billie Joe Armstrong formed Green Day in California around 1986 with bassist Mike Dirnt. They released a couple of album in 1990 and 1991, but it was 1994's Dookie that really garnered them mainstream attention, especially songs such as "Basket Case" and "Longview." The record has since sold roughly 20 million copies, and is known as their true breakthrough.
A couple of years later, and they experienced a second massive breakthrough with 2004's American Idiot, and though it has yet to catch up to Dookie in sales, it was given its own broadway adaptation, which officially opened in 2010. They've released another six studio albums since American Idiot, their most recent being last year's Father of All Motherfuckers.
Green Day still remain one of the most beloved bands to carry the punk torch, so head below to vote for your favorite song, and tune into Loudwire Nights next Monday at 7PM ET to find out which three tracks prevailed.
