Quiz: How well do you know Green Day’s lyrics?

Do you know your Basket Cases from your Boulevard Of Broken Dreams? Take our tricky Green Day quiz now!

Sometimes, at Green Day shows, Billie Joe Armstrong will barely have to sing due to the crowd knowing everything word for word. Check out this performance from the 2013 Reading Festival – the crowd should probably get a cut of the YouTube money.

Boulevard Of Broken Dreams was a huge hit, though, a GRAMMY-winning chart-topper. How would the crowd have fared doing a deep cut from the early days, or an album track from one of their less-heralded records?

(Probably still quite well, to be honest – it’s really hard to overstate just how adored a band Green Day are.)

Find out how much attention you’ve been paying over the decades with our lyrics quiz.
