Billie Joe promises “Green Day: Rock Band” in 2010

Green Day

Following the success of “The Beatles: Rock Band”, Harmonix announced they were developing a version for The Who. But why stop there? Harmonix and publisher MTV Games will unveil “Green Day: Rock Band” in 2010.

“We’ve worked with the Rock Band team in the past year to enable our fans to play tracks from 21st Century Breakdown, and we’re excited to now be working on a game, spanning our entire career,” Billie Joe Armstrong said in a statement. “We want people to fire this up, choose their favorite Green Day tracks, and play along with us as Rock Band avatars so they can feel what it’s like to perform onstage as Green Day.”

Like The Beatles: Rock Band, the Green Day game will allow players to put themselves in venues and environments specific to the NoCal trio, and will feature key moments from the band’s three-decade career.

A specific release date and the game’s track list are unknown. They should just take the songs from International Superhits! and the singles from the last two albums. Better yet, “Green Day: Rock Band Dookie” is good enough.
