The album went on to win the Grammy for Best Alternative Album and become the band's best-seller. Success continued to roll in for the band with subsequent singles like “Insomniac,” “Nimrod,” and “Warning.”

One of Green Day's most successful albums was 2004's “American Idiot,” a rock opera that peaked at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 and was awarded the Grammy for Best Rock Album. In 2009, the band released another top hit, “21st Century Breakdown.”
