    Green Day play the biggest show of their 'fucking lives' at London's Wembley Stadium

    American pop punk trio also get into the World Cup spirit

    The American punk pop trio played a mammoth two hour and 50 minute set from their 20 year backcatalogue featuring tracks and hits from seven of their eight albums as they peppered their set with pyrotechnics and shooting flames.

    Arriving onstage to huge cheers, drummer Tre Cool charged down the catwalk before launching his drumsticks onto the main stage as the band kicked off the show with '21st Century Breakdown' opener 'Song Of The Century'.

    What bands influenced you?Katelynn See, INDEPENDENCE, KY.
    A lot of Minneapolis bands like Hüsker Dü and the Replacements. After that, the Ramones, then the local punk-rock scene that we came from in Berkeley, Calif. There was this great compilation called Turn It Around! That was a pretty big record for me.

    Why do you never seem to age?Eldon Mills, CHESTERFIELD, ENGLAND
    [Laughs.] I definitely age. It's about trying to mentally keep yourself in a place where you're never resting on your laurels. That's the fountain of youth.

    Nobody appreciates righteousness like John Robb. After seeing Green Day live at Manchester's Old Trafford stadium, he explains why they're still so thrilling - and the ultimate small town band

    In a blur of powerful anthemic songs, a stunning LED backdrop, hardcore rushes, massive ballads, serious commentary and daft stunts, Green Day arrive at the sold out 30,000 plus capacity Old Trafford cricket ground on a balmy Mancunian evening. It's a show of strength that seems to be beyond the mainstream media sense of belief.

    Their stunning show, almost two hours long, is 21st century rock &

    'Green Day: Rock Band' got it right

    New 'Green Day' game has no filler songs — are you listening, 'Guitar Hero'?

    Green Day: Rock Band is exactly what a band- specific music game should be.

    It comes as no surprise that the minds at Harmonix and MTV Games succeeded, given their terrific work on The Beatles: Rock Band.

    The Guitar Hero franchise should take note, because Green Day fans got what Van Halen fans wanted with Guitar Hero: Van Halen. And what would that be? Their favorite band.

    It sounds simple.

    MTV's 'Green Day: Rock Band' Contest: We Have A Winner!

    Last week, in celebration of the release of "Green Day: Rock Band," we announced a very cool contest. One lucky Green Day fan could win a "Rock Band 2" guitar autographed by Billie Joe Armstrong, Mike Dirnt and Tré Cool. All they had to do was submit a video explaining just why Green Day rocks.

    Pretty cool, right? As expected, we got tons of videos from rabid fans ... so many, in fact, that we were forced to spend all weekend going through the submissions.
