Green Day started in the mid 1980s as Sweet Children featuring Billie Joe Armstrong and Mike Dirnt. In 1989, they changed their name to Green Day, inspired by the song they wrote about smoking pot at the Berkeley docks. The drummer was Al Sobordonet, later being replaced by Tre Cool, after leaving the Lookouts with Kain and Lawrence Livermore, the owner of Lookout! at the time. Green Day has developed a lot since then, not changing, but maturing. Most people know Green Day for songs like Basket Case, Brain Stew, or Minority.

On Green Day's album 'Insomniac' the song '86' is a reference to gilman not allowing them to return.
