Green Day Romp Through Their Hits at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame
With frontman Billie Joe Armstrong dressed up in his version of a tuxedo, bassist Mike Dirnt sporting an ever-so-classy sleeveless suit and drummer Tre Cool in his traditional neon-dyed hair, the trio tore through "When I Come Around" and "Basket Case" from their 1994 smash Dookie, and the title track from 2004's American Idiot.

Green Day arrived as the standard-bearers of a new generation of punk rockers in the early '90s with Dookie.
