    TOP 10 GREEN DAY SONGS
    December 27, 2011

    Green Day songs have been a staple on the radio airwaves for the past two decades. But like any musical talent starting out, the band members had to find a way to rise from obscurity, and all at the mere age of 17. Luckily, the band emerged in the early '90s when the world had an insatiable craving for punk rock. After performing in small venues in Berkeley, CA and releasing two albums under an independent label, the band got their big break with the release of 1994's major label debut 'Dookie.' The album went on to sell 15 million copies worldwide. Of course they were denounced by a majority of the punk rock scene, who deemed them sellouts for going mainstream. Green Day went on to release five more albums – the last two both politically-driven rock operas: 2004's 'American Idiot' and 2009's '21st Century Breakdown.' Now with three Grammys, as well as a Broadway debut and their own Rock Band video game, Green Day's success has evolved into a worldwide franchise. As rated by AOL radio listeners, here are the Top 10 Green Day Songs.
