Green Day are the hugely successful American punk rock band first formed in 1986. Founders were lead vocalist and guitarist Billie Joe Armstrong together with bassist and backing vocalist Mike Dirnt. Drummer Tré Cool came in as a replacement in 1990. Their early releases were through independent record label Lookout! Records. That was until their first major label debut Dookie was released in 1994 shipping over 10 million copies in the U.S bringing them stardom and their own place in American rock.

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.
