Bonus Trivia

.

John Kiffmeyer played drums for Green Day from its inception in 1986 to 1990, when he left to study at Humboldt State University. Kiffmeyer reunited with the band in its original inception, Sweet Children, for a concert in Cleveland, Ohio.

.

The band began work in 2003 on a new album, tentatively titled Cigarettes and Valentines, which was abandoned after the master tracks were stolen from the studio that same year. The material was rumored to have been reworked or re-recorded by the Green Day sideproject, The Network.

.

Green Day refused to comply with Wal-Mart's request for a Parental Advisory sticker for their 2009 album 21st Century Breakdown, and described the ruling as "like you're in 1953 or something."

.

Green Day received its own edition of the video game Rock Band, which featured the complete albums of Dookie, American Idiot and 21st Century Breakdown.

.

In addition to the band's many side projects, Billie Joe Armstrong also performs in The Boo, a band featuring his sons and wife, Adrienne.

.

The band was the focus of a 2009 art exhibit in London, where contributing artists showcased works based on the songs from 21st Century Breakdown.
