Green Day is back!
The band of rockers performed for a sold out crowd on Sunday for the first time since frontman Billie Joe Armstrong's onstage meltdown and resulting rehab stint last fall.
The award winning musicians returned with a rock n' roll bang at the Fox Theater in Pomona, CA in preparation for their American tour.
Even though Billie has admitted that maintaining sobriety is tough, he appeared to be back to his old, energetic self.
Hopefully the stress of the tour won't cause any old habits to flare up again!
Just take it one day at a time, Billie.
Ch-ch-check out the rambunctious crew dominate the stage with American Idiot (above)!!
Do you ever wonder what it's like to go through withdrawal after a decade of substance abuse?
Well, we hope you never have to find out first hand, like Billie Joe Armstrong did after his meltdown at the iHeartRadio festival last year. We're glad he's open about it instead of having to find out for ourselves!
Here's what he said:
Billie Joe Armstrong may have not always been right, but now he's taking baby steps and making his way back to recovery!
In the March issue of Rolling Stone, Green Day's frontman talks about how alcohol and prescription drugs took over his life, and about his onstage meltdown at the iHeartRadio festival in Sin City last september.
We know what you're thinking…
If you've seen one documentary about a punk band turning their politically charged album into a smash-hit on Broadway, you've seen them all!
Actually, you probably weren't thinking that, because this ah-mazing confluence of events is totally unprecedented!
Green Day, however, always rocks outside the box!!
Ch-ch-check the trailer for Broadway Idiot (above), a film featured at SXSW this year!
American Idiot was a sweeter-than-sweet-berry-wine album; we can't wait to see exactly how the band reworked their art for the stage!
Maroon 5 is certainly feeling the love tonight.
The band is riding high as they were named the Favorite Band at The 2013 People’s Choice Awards!
After being up against powerhouse bands like Green Day, Linkin Park, No Doubt and Train, Maroon 5 accepted the award given by the fans.

It hasn't been the best year for fans of Billie Joe Armstrong, what with his meltdown and the subsequent announcement he would be heading to rehab.
But tomorrow is a brand new Green Day!
At least, that's what the singer/songwriter says! He shared a series of notes on the band's website thanking the true
blue green fans and promising a better 2013!
Ch-ch-check out the actual notes from Billie Joe here:
Paul Rudd and Billie Joe Armstrong in the same scene?!
What!?! Did someone hack into the fantasy cortex of our brain?!
How else could Judd Apatow know to put the Green Day singer in This is 40?
Ch-ch-check out the deleted scene from the knee-slapping, side-splitting, funny bone breakin' flick (above)!
Ugh!? How could this ridiculously awesome conversation about the absurdness of the music industry out of the final cut?
Every film needs BJA!
A stripping guitarist in Magic Mike! A Defense Against Crappy Music professor in Harry Potter! The iceberg in Titanic!
Is there any role Billy can't handle? LOLz!!
