It was a breakout success, selling over 10 million copies in the United States and 16 million copies worldwide. Dookie spawned five singles, including the international hits "Basket Case" and "When I Come Around". The album placed Green Day at the forefront of the 1990s punk rock revival. Insomniac, the band's fourth studio album, was released in October 1995.

Nimrod followed in October 1997; it peaked at number ten on the Billboard 200. Four singles were released from Nimrod; the most successful of these was "Good Riddance (Time of Your Life)", which hit the top ten in countries such as Australia and Canada.

The band's sixth studio album Warning was released in October 2000 to mild commercial success, peaking at number four on the Billboard 200 and earning a platinum certification from the RIAA. Their seventh studio album American Idiot reignited the band's popularity with a younger generation. Becoming the band's first album to top the Billboard 200, American Idiot sold nearly six million copies in the United States and over 14 million copies worldwide. The album spawned five commercially successful singles: "American Idiot", "Boulevard of Broken Dreams", "Holiday", "Wake Me Up When September Ends" and "Jesus of Suburbia". The band's seventh studio album 21st Century Breakdown followed in May 2009, topping the Billboard 200 and being certified platinum by the RIAA.

Famous quotes containing the words green and/or day:

    He hangs in shades the orange bright,
    Like golden lamps in a green night,
    And does in the pomegranates close
    Jewels more rich than Ormus shows;
    He makes the figs our mouths to meet,
    And throws the melons at our feet;
    But apples plants of such a price
    No tree could ever bear them twice.
    Andrew Marvell (1621–1678)

    I see my light come shining
    From the west unto the east
    Any day now, any day now,
    I shall be released.
    Bob Dylan [Robert Allen Zimmerman] (b. 1941)
