The guys have been nominated 19 times for a Grammy, winning five awards, starting in 1995 with best alternative album for Dookie, and followed by best rock album in 2005 for American Idiot, record of the year for Boulevard of Broken Dreams in 2006, best rock album for 21st Century Breakdown (2010) and best musical show album for American Idiot: The Original Broadway Cast Recording (2011).

The year before, Green Day took the stage adaptation of American Idiot and debuted it on Broadway, where it earned several Tony Awards, including best musical and best scenic design.

Several times, the band and/or Armstrong have been on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine.

Since 1987, the band reportedly has sold more than 65 million records worldwide, 25 million in the United States.
