Green Day is an American punk rock band formed in 1987 by lead vocalist and guitarist Billie Joe Armstrong and bassist and backing vocalist Mike Dirnt. For much of their career the band has been a trio with drummer TrÃ© Cool. In 2012 guitarist and backing vocalist Jason White became a full member after playing in the band as a session and touring guitarist for 13 years. Cool replaced former drummer John Kiffmeyer in 1990, prior to the recording of the band's second studio album, Kerplunk (1992). Green Day was originally part of the punk scene at the DIY 924 Gilman Street club in Berkeley, California.

I always thought that Green Day's American Idiot was a parody of the show American Idol, I do not know if that was their intention of not, although it's the same in terms of meaning: The song refers to the apathy of people today, with main focus on the blind following of the media.
