Green Day Biography

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.

In the same year the band independently released their first EP "1,000 Hours" which was well received in the punk scene. Soon afterward in 1990 the band signed a contract with independent label Lookout! Records, which was run by Larry Livermore, and released their debut album "1,039/Smoothed Out Slappy Hour" within that year.
