Greatest Hits: God's Favourite Band
Green Day's 'Greatest Hits: God's Favorite Band' pulls together 22 huge hits from the biggest albums of their career, including the era defining 'Dookie' and 'American Idiot.'
'God's Favorite Band' also includes a new version of "Ordinary World," from the recent 'Revolution Radio' album, now featuring Miranda Lambert, and also an amazing new Green Day rock song called "Back In The USA."
The collection chronicles the sonic journey of one of the most essential and dynamic rock bands in recent history. Formed in 1986 in Berkeley, CA, Green Day achieved breakout success with 1994's Dookie which has sold over 10 million copies to date in the U.S. alone. Widely credited with popularizing and reviving mainstream interest in punk rock, Green Day would go on to release Insomniac (1995), Nimrod (1997), and Warning (2000).
In 2004, Green Day released the rock opera American Idiot which captured the nation's attention and sold more than six million copies in the U.S. Mojo declared "It's exhilarating stuff, the kind of record that sets new parameters as to what is possible from a punk rock'n'roll band in the 21st century."
In 2010, a stage adaptation of 'American Idiot' debuted on Broadway. The band went on to release the critically acclaimed '21st Century Breakdown' (2009) and the album trilogy 'Green Day ¡Uno!,' 'Green Day ¡Dos!,' and 'Green Day ¡Tré' (2012).
Green Day is one of the world's best-selling bands of all time, having sold more than 75 million records worldwide. The group has won five Grammy Awards. On April 18, 2015, the band was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a part of the 2015 class in what was their first year of eligibility for induction. Green Day's 12th studio album 'Revolution Radio' was released on October 7, 2016 and debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Top 200 Chart. Upon its release, People proclaimed: "The punk vets still have a tattooed finger on the national pulse."
