    As you can see by this list, Green Day are no “minority” when it comes to banding together to help save the environment. But instead of paying environmental causes mere lip service, they’ve paired up with the Natural Resources Defense Council to try to make a real impact on the way we live.

    The pairing sees the band encouraging their fans to do everything from lobbying congress to create more “green” jobs to letting President Obama know that you support clean energy. (We hear Billie Joe Armstrong has got the guy on BlackBerry Messenger).

    Furthermore, you can visit the collaborative

  • Pay for a Broadway show and get a Green Day set as an added bonus. That is, at least, what the capacity crowd at the April 22 performance of American Idiot got.

    Following the full guitar-equipped cast's bow and encore, the curtain rose once more, and a "roadie" (on Broadway: union stagehand) brought out two microphone stands. The decibel level rose even higher as Billie Joe Armstrong, Mike Dirnt and Tre Cool — aka Green Day — took to the stage. (Their presence in the house was no secret as those seated in the orchestra section of the St.

    Green Day Contest Winners Rave About Surprise Show

    Winners of MTV's 'American Idiot' contest got big surprise at end of musical.

    On Thursday night, winners of MTV's "American Idiot" contest were not only treated to a great show — but a surprise mini concert by Green Day, who took the stage to play "American Idiot" and "Basket Case." So, all in all, it was a pretty great night.

    "I think I had heart failure! It was the most amazing experience," contest winner Fallyn Ruzzi told MTV News following the show. "I mean, the play was great, and then Green Day played songs, too!"

    Ruzzi was just

    Green Day's 'American Idiot' Musical Is Political And Personal
    'It's about people becoming lost and just trying to find their way,' Billie Joe Armstrong tells MTV News.

    By now, you're probably aware that Green Day's 2004 album American Idiot was a fairly, uh, political affair. And while the Broadway version of the record doesn't exactly shy away from the topic, it also reveals a side of the music that most probably never realized was there in the first place: the personal.

    "I think, politically, American Idiot, when we were writing it, it was trying to make sense out of a big mess,"

    "This was the highest moment I think we've ever had as a band in the 21 years we've been around," Billie Joe Armstrong said of the opening night of American Idiot, the musical based on Green Day's album of the same name. And high he should be, and no, we aren't just saying that because the musical opened on 4/20, but because it's gotten raves from the likes of the New York Times and the Los Angeles Times . Who'd have thought that Broadway was ready for punk? Flip through our gallery to see Green Day arriving to rock opera's big opening night, as well as joining the cast of American
