Armstrong is best known as the lead singer of the punk rock band Green Day. He has also been a member of Pinhead Gunpowder, The Coverups, Foxboro Hot Tubs, The Longshot, and The Network.

Green Day’s first two albums, “39/Smooth” (1990) and “Kerplunk!” (1991), cemented their place in the Southern California punk scene of the early 1990s. However, when “Dookie” (1994) was released on a big label and sold over 8 million copies, the band was accused of selling out.

Armstrong continued to disregard the criticisms of the group’s early fans as the band strengthened its position within the mainstream, culminating in 2004’s “American Idiot,” a rock opera that became a surprise international success, Grammy and Tony Award winner, and Tony Award-winning Broadway musical.

Green Day has released thirteen studio albums, sold over 75 million copies, and was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2015. Billie Joe has also appeared in several films and television productions co-founded a record label (Adeline Records), created his guitar store (Broken Guitars), and co-founded Oakland Coffee Works with his Green Day colleagues.

Early Years

Billie Joe Armstrong was born in Oakland, California on February 17, 1972. He was raised in Rodeo, California, with his waitress mother Ollie, truck driver father Andrew, and five older siblings. Unfortunately, Andrew died of esophageal cancer when Billie Joe was ten years old. Armstrong developed an early interest in music, and a teacher at Hillcrest Elementary School encouraged him to record “Look for Love” for local label Fiat Records when he was only 5 years old.

Billie Joe met future Green Day bandmate Mike Dirnt in the cafeteria of Hillcrest Elementary when he was 10 years old; five years later, they established the band Sweet Children. Armstrong attended John Swett High School and Pinole Valley High School until his 18th birthday when he left out.
