The band Green Day was formed in the Bay Area of Northern California in 1988.

The two founding members of the band, Billie Joe Armstrong and Mike Dirnt were 15 year old friends when they formed their first band.  They called it Sweet Children.  The next year, 1988, they joined up with a drummer named John Kiffmeyer.  At that point, they changed their name to Green Day.

Under this name, they released their first album in 1990.  They did not become much of a commercial success until they released the album "Dookie" in 1994.
