Brief Information about Green Day Cricket Wireless Amphitheater :
Out of all the post-Nirvana American alternative bands to break into the pop mainstream, Green Day was second only to Pearl Jam in terms of power. At their core, Green Day was simply punk revivalists, recharging the energy of speedy, catchy three-chord punk-pop songs. Though their music wasn't chiefly innovative, they brought the sound of late-'70s punk to a new, younger generation with Dookie, their 1994 major-label debut.
Green Day weren't capable to sustain their success -- Dookie sold over eight million, while its follow-up, Insomniac, only sold a quarter of its precursor yet their influence was far-reaching because they opened the doors for a flood of American neo-punk, punk metal, and third wave ska revivalists.
