    We're just one week away from the release of "Green Day: Rock Band," as one of the biggest acts in the world conquers an all-new medium: video games. It features 47 of the Berkeley boys' greatest tracks, including all of Dookie, American Idiot and 21st Century Breakdown.

    Recently, Buzzworthy had a chance to talk with Green Day about the game, the group's all-time best MTV memories and some of the more painful events that have gone down while they were out on tour.

    Green Day bassist Mike Dirnt talks to us about Rock Band and getting "pwned" when it comes to video games.

    The influential band from Oakland, California, that spent its early years playing in Berkeley is exploring new ground with a Broadway adaption of its American Idiot album, as well a video game that will feature three of its most popular albums.
