Green Day stormed into New York City's Irving Plaza for an intimate club show on Saturday night (Sept. 15) in celebration of their upcoming release '¡Uno!' and their involvement with Nokia's new music streaming service. And the fans lucky enough to be in attendance were treated to a two-and-a-half-hour marathon set that spanned the band's entire career.

Green Day brought a new track to the 2012 MTV Video Music Awards last night (Sept. 6) when they performed the song, 'Let Yourself Go' in the middle of the audience. Frontman Billie Joe Armstrong told MTV on the red carpet that he was going to "create some chaos" with their performance, and he did just that.
Russian punk rock collective Pussy Riot have fired back at Russian President Vladimir Putin and the two-year prison sentence handed down to three Pussy Riot members in a new video message. The international music community has shown tremendous support for Pussy Riot, and the band has created a video of the masked female musicians thanking bands such as the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Green Day, while burning a photo of Russia's President Putin.
Green Day are one of the top bands going, which makes them the perfect act to help launch a new streaming service. The group has teamed with Nokia and AT&T to launch Nokia Music, which will offer free and unlimited access to playlists and songs from a global catalog boasting 17 million tracks.
