"Green Day's music and explosive live performances transcend age barriers," said Tom Whalley , Chairman, Warner Bros. Records. "By partnering the band with Harmonix, Warner Bros./Reprise is thrilled to help create a Rock Band experience devoted exclusively to their impressive catalog."

Harmonix promises players will have access to a setlist of 47 tracks, including "Brain Stew," "Jaded," "Hitchin' a Ride," "American Idio," "Wake Me Up When September Ends," and "Boulevard of Broken Dreams." All the tracks will be exportable and playable in previous versions of Rock Band.
