Green Day are an American rock band formed in 1986. Their debut studio album 39/Smooth was released in 1990. However, their major label debut happened with the release of their third studio album Dookie in 1994, through Reprise Records. The album is considered to be a milestone in Green Day’s career, selling ten million copies in the U.S alone at the time. Their seventh album American Idiot released in 2004, can be characterized as a career comeback for the band after a period of decreased success. The band has also won five Grammy Awards, while in 2015 they were also inducted into Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. Green Day are considered today together with Bad Religion, Rancid and The Offspring as one of the best bands of the California punk scene that achieved large-scale success in the early 90s.
