Since ''Music/AmericanIdiot'', the band has come out with a second rock opera, 2009's ''Music/TwentyFirstCenturyBreakdown'', that continues to build upon the political overtones and near-satire of ''Idiot'' despite having a dissimilar story and narrative. In 2012, the band released a trilogy of albums called ''¡Uno!'', ''¡Dos!'', and ''¡Tré!''. There's also a 1.5-hour-long documentary showing the making of the trilogy called ''¡Cuatro!'' that can be found online (at least, before it gets taken down). Despite the sound of the albums having more emphasis on "pop" than "punk", they have all been critically and commercially successful, and the band has shown no signs of slowing down.

In 2016, Billy announced over Instagram that a new album was forthcoming. With the single 'Bang Bang' being released in late July, along with the release/leak of the titular song of the new album, ''Music/RevolutionRadio'', much hype was in place. The album was released in October 2016.

** On ''Revolution Radio'', this is obvious in spades. Going from a KillEmAll song ("Bang Bang") to a ProtestSong about the American Black Lives Matter movement, and from an epic rhapsody featuring a reprise from the opening song "Somewhere Now" ("Forever Now"), to an ending ballad that's comparable to "Good Riddance (Time of Your Life)" ("Ordinary World").

** "Bang Bang" from Revolution Radio, a song from the perspective of a mass shooter looking for attention and chaos.

** On 21st Century Breakdown there's "Christian's Inferno", a fast paced punk rock song full of rage and adrenaline, which is followed by "Last Night on Earth", a piano-heavy love ballad you could slow-dance to.

* HostileShowTakeover: Briefly. In 1998, the band - at the height of their juvenile delinquent years - appeared on Australia's Saturday morning show ''Recovery TV'' for just an interview, but then they decided spontaneously to perform a song. So they took the instruments from a surprised house band and performed the ''very'' not TV-friendly "[[ClusterFBomb The Grouch.]]" Dylan Lewis, the host, was not happy, even if the fans were. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0m9CkF8Q240 See it here.]]



** In the 90s, they loved being those guys. Sets would often end with Mike wrecking his bass and ¡Tré burning his kit to the ground with gasoline, and then Billie would finish by playing "Good Riddance" by himself in front of the fire.
** Their reputation preceded them by the end of the decade. During a 1997 in-store appearance at Tower Records in NYC, Green Day trashed the venue and caused $50,000 in damage. Afterward, when they got to Toronto for their appearance at HMV, which was to be filmed for a Muchmusic special, the company decided it'd be best if their appearance was in the alley ''behind'' the store instead. It proved to be a wise decision, as the band [[https://youtu.be/Xc7RIHmNpX0?t=23m34s happily wrecked everything in sight at the end of that set, including amps.]]



** How could you forget "Basket Case" in all of its neurotic glory?
