Name: Green Day

Punk music struggled at the onset of the 90s, with the youth of America crying out for a band that encapsulated their angst and rowdiness. The call was answered by a number of bands, but none more popular and successful than Green Day. Their simple yet wildly raucous sound on Dookie became a hit amongst both the youth and older punk fans. That same energy was displayed during various, infamous tour dates and Green Day continues to play to sold-out crowds after more than twenty years. Green Day currently has a recently released live album (Awesome as Fuck) out, a ninth album in the works, a hit musical on Broadway (American Idiot), and film version of the musical in the works. Green Day was formed in 1987 by Billie Joe Armstrong and Mike Dirnt, with Sean Hughes replacing Dirnt a year later. Tre Cool replaced Al Sobrante as the drummer shortly after the release of Green Day's debut album, 39/Smooth, in 1990. The success of the album, combined with exposure from numerous tour dates in '92 and '93 caught the attention of Reprise Records. While some of Green Day's fans considered them sellouts for signing to a major label, the move created one of the most influential punk albums of the past few decades: Dookie. Recorded in three weeks and released in 1994, the album won a Grammy for Best Alternative Album, its singles were heavily played on MTV, and it was eventually certified diamond. It also gained Green Day some of the most memorable tour dates of their career, including a mud-filled set at Woodstock 1994 and a violent tour date in Boston. When Green Day's next three albums, Insomniac, Nimrod, and Warning were released, audiences confused the band's changed style with a loss of edge. Despite a slight decline in popularity, Green Day performed hugely popular tour dates during those years, including performances on the Warped Tour. It wasn't until the release of American Idiot in 2004 that the aforementioned albums became apart of a larger musical evolution. The record was written as a concept album that dealt with the rebellion and dissatisfaction of young people; released ten years after Dookie, Green Day reintroduced themselves to a new generation of disenfranchised youth. While the wait for Green Day's next album was the longest fans had to endure, it was well worth it. 21st Century Breakdown was released in 2009 to critical acclaim, and quickly became the band's highest charting album to date. The fans responded enthusiastically; not only by clearing record store shelves, but also on the following world wide tour. This included a few secret shows under the alias Foxboro Hot Tubs, where lucky listeners were treated to new material. These songs would later form the basis for the trilogy of albums, ¡Uno!, ¡Dos!, and ¡Tré!, each released within a month of each other in 2012.

Name: Fall Out Boy

One of the most influential American pop punk bands of the new millennium is Fall Out Boy. The group achieved mainstream success with their 2005 album, From Under the Cork Tree, which was followed by some of the most popular tour dates in recentyears. Fall Out Boy continued their rise to fame with singles like "This Ain't a Scene, It's an Arms Race," "Dance, Dance," and "Thnks fr th Mmrs." There are no tour dates in 2011 for Fall Out Boy, ever since the band went on hiatus in 2009; but fans are anxiously awaiting the announcement of a reunion in the near future. The secret origins of Fall Out Boy began at New Trier High School in Winnetka, Illinois, where Pete Wentz and Joe Trohman went to school. Trohman met drummer Patrick Stump at a Borders Books after Stump heard him talking about the band Neurosis, and Stump was invited to join as the lead singer. T. J. Kunasch was hired to play rhythm guitar and Mike Pareskuwicz was brought on to play drums, thus completing the band's initial lineup. Utilizing their collective punk influences, the band began playing concert dates around Chicago. Fall Out Boy released a demo and quickly followed it up with a split EP with Project Rocket in 2002. Fall Out Boy also released a short debut LP, Fall Out Boy's Evening Out with Your Girlfriend, in 2003. After the debut album's release, Kunasch and Pareskuwicz left the band; Stump took on the guitar in addition to vocal duties and Project Rocket drummer Andy Hurley joined the group. Fall Out Boy also signed to Fueled by Ramen, which released Take This To Your Grave two months after their previous album and sent the new line-up on many a tour date. The record was the first to gain Fall Out Boy commercial and critical success, with most of the reviews being very positive. Any success Fall Out Boy had achieved prior to 2005 would increase exponentially after the release of From Under the Cork Tree, which has gone platinum twice since its release. The album was supported by a number of hugely popular singles, including "Sugar, We're Goin Down" and "Dance, Dance," as well as headlining tour dates around the world. The group followed up their successful album with Infinity on High in 2007. The album showcased an evolution from pop punk to an edgier rock style and debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200. Fall Out Boy's latest studio release is the 2008 album Folie à Deux. The album was well received by critics and featured a number of special guest vocalists, including Debbie Harry, Elvis Costello, and Brendon Urie. Despite even more musical experimentation and the favoring of an alt-rock sound, the album went gold in just over a month and the single "I Don't Care" received heavy airplay. In late 2009, the members of Fall Out Boy announced that they needed some time off and were going on an indefinite hiatus. While comments from the band's members have left the band's future vague, fans can expect no new albums or tour dates in 2011.
