Green Day: Rock Band Coming This Year?


Green Day front man Billy Joe Armstrong revealed the existence of something that sounds a lot like a Green Day: Rock Band project, though he doesn’t seem to be entirely sure about it himself.

Oh to be a rock star. So flush with multiple sources of income, you can’t even accurately describe a single one of them if asked.

Billy Joe Armstrong of popular-as-ever pop punk outfit Green Day recently let spill (probably causing a PR person somewhere to do a spit take) the existence of a partnership between his band and Harmonix/MTV/etc that will result in something that sounds like a Green Day: Rock Band game to go along with The Beatles: Rock Band and Pearl Jam: Rock Band.

Armstrong was doing a radio show when a caller phoned in to ask him when Green Day’s songs would appear in Rock Band, and Armstrong answered by saying: “Uh yeah, we’re doing a whole Green Day Rock Band…uh.” That could be a track pack, but sounds a bit more like a full-fledged game. And if Pearl Jam’s getting one, why shouldn’t Green Day?

Billy Joe then let slip some more highly informative tidbits about the game’s release. “I’m not sure [when it’ll come out]…soon,” he said. “Like I think not this week, but this year soon…by the end of this year.”
