Green Day announce new greatest hits package

Green Day will release a new best-of package, “Greatest Hits: God’s Favorite Band”, on November 17.

The set delivers 20 hits from the band’s 31-year career alongside two new tracks: “Back In The USA” and a duet with Miranda Lambert on “Ordinary World.”

The collection’s title comes from a March 22, 2017 appearance on CBS-TV’s The Late Show With Stephen Colbert, when God appeared in the Ed Sullivan Theatre to introduce Green Day as his “favorite band.”

“Shout out to The Late Show with Stephen Colbert,” posted the group. “20 biggest hits. 2 new songs. 1 new music vid. And a partridge in a pear tree. From God’s Favorite Band to the world’s best fans, Christmas comes early.”

A track list for the package can be found below.

Formed in 1986 in Berkeley, CA, Green Day achieved breakout success with 1994’s “Dookie”, which has sold over 10 million copies to date in the US alone.

The band would go on to release more platinum albums before 2004’s “American Idiot” reconfirmed their place in punk and rock history with 5 hit singles, a pair of Grammy Awards and 6 million copies sold Stateside.

Green Day were inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame in 2015; their latest album is 2016’s “Revolution Radio.”

The band will launch a South American tour in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil on November 1.
