Don’t be a Basket Case – fill your shopping baskets with our Green Day merch now.
When drummer Tre Cool joined Billie Joe Armstrong and Mike Dirnt – lifelong friends, punks at heart and aspiring musicians – it marked the dawn of a new day, a Green Day.
After trialling their sound and releasing early works like "1,039/Smoothed Out Slappy Hours", they earned their stripes on the underground scene and started to gain attention with their second album, "Kerplunk". This got them in the doors of the major labels and led to one of the best-selling pop-punk albums in history, "Dookie". More than 25 million copies of Dookie have been sold and the album won the band their first career Grammy for Best Alternative Music Performance.
Billie and the boys rode the wave of punk’s resurgence throughout the 90s with follow-up albums "Insomniac" (1995), "Nimrod" (1997) and "Warning" (2000). Though their success was evident, Green Day never quite reached the success of Dookie again. Until…
"American Idiot". After a short hiatus, Green Day re-entered the rock arena with a career-best with 2004’s "American Idiot". Proving that the best art can come from the worst of times, the concerns of the Iraq War, a George Bush presidency and the decline of American culture inspired the boys to tackle everything from mass media manipulation, homophobia, celebrity culture and corruption with radio-ready hooks and punk riffs.
Over 12 million copies of American Idiot have been sold worldwide, and in 2005 Green Day received a second Grammy award but this time for Best Rock Album. Singles like "Boulevard of Broken Dreams" and "Wake Me Up When September Ends" have become all-time greats in pop-punk canon.
"American Idiot" proved to be anything but dumb as Green Day's popularity soared for both long-time fans and a whole new generation. Keeping the momentum going, follow up albums like "21st Century Breakdown" and the album trilogy "¡Uno! , ¡Dos! , And ¡Tré!" were critical and commercial smashes.
With five Grammy awards and over 85 million records sold, Green Day are simply one of the most successful punk rock bands of all time – with iconic looks, album covers and music videos to boot. It’s this innate understanding of the power of all art mediums that has inspired our selection of Green Day merchandise across our online store.
We’ve got Green Day clothing inspired by some of their iconic artworks. A Green Day t-shirt with the American Idiot heart-shaped grenade is the right blend of vintage and timeless. You can also get a Green Day shirt featuring a photo of the boys in their prime. Other Green Day merch includes a selection of the band’s LPs and greatest hits albums.
Right, that should have adequately inspired you to get shopping. Now. 'Don’t wait around'. 'Good Riddance'. Hope you had the time of your life…
