“We’ve worked with the Rock Band team in the past year to enable our fans to play tracks from 21st Century Breakdown, and we’re excited to now be working on a game, spanning our entire career,” said Green Day frontman, Billy-Joe Armstrong.

Posted in EA, Nintendo Wii, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 with tags on December 13, 2009 by Jonathan Cullen

Green Day: Rock Band’s just been announced at the VGAs.

Harmonix, MTV Games, EA. Usual suspects. 2010 is when it’s due according to Billy-Joe Armstrong of GD.

One of the first songs confirmed is American Idiot, taken from the album of the same name.

Needless to say, as fans of Beatles: Rock Band, this is fucking ridiculous. We want Radiohead, innit.

Trailer incoming.

RUMOR: Green Day: Rock Band Incoming

As if The Beatles werent big enough for the series, Billy Joe Armstrong, the leadman of Green Day has hinted that they will be the next band for their own edition of Rock Band, according to Kotaku. They will be only the second band after the Fab Four to get their own addition of the series (3rd if you count AC/DC’s live disc only addition). Which begs the question as to how the three piece, who only released a brand new album recently, got this far without one song appearing on the Rock Band store? Armstrong said:

Uh yeah, we’re doing a whole Green Day Rock Band…uh. I’m not sure…soon. Like I think not this week, but this year soon…by the end of this year.

Obviously not this week, Billy. Which now leads us to another question: HOW THE FUCK HAVE HARMONIX NOT RELEASED A RADIOHEAD: ROCK BAND???
