American punk rock band Green Day story started out in Rodeo, California, when 14-year-old childhood friends Billie Joe Armstrong and Mike Dirnt formed their first band Sweet Children. In the newly-born band Joe was on lead vocals and guitar, whereas Mike on bass and backing vocals. By 1989, the group recruited drummer John Kiftmeyer and changed their name to Green Day after one of their songs. The original named Green Day was actually a bay area term for a day that you would just sit around and smoke pot the whole day.
