FAQ - Answers to your Green Day and GDA related Questions
Questions about Green Day
How can I contact the band?There's no certain way to get a hold of them. The Idiot Club used to take questions for the band, some of which they'd answer in monthly videos - but that hasn't been done in years. The best option (still with no guarantee they'll see it) is send letters to:
c/o Warner Bros. Records Inc.
P.O. Box 6868
Burbank, CA 91510
Are Green Day touring in my state/country this year?Quite possibly! Green Day are currently embarking on a 2017 tour for their latest album “Revolution Radio”. You can find all their announced tour dates on our tour page.
Are Green Day splitting up? / Is their next album going to be their last?Of course not. This rumor always comes up with a new album. The band has said numerous times they don't plan on ever breaking up. Billie Joe has said in interviews that the only way anyone is leaving the band is in a body bag.
Do any members of Green Day have any social network accounts (Twitter/Facebook,etc.)?Yes! Over the past couple years Green Day has been been using technology quite a bit. Here are the verified Green Day accounts on the web:

Questions about GDA
When did GDA start?GDA was first started as 'Courtney's Green Day Page' in summer of 2000. In July 2001 the site was renamed "The Green Day Authority" and the rest is history. Kind of. For a full history of the site read this page.
How did GDA get it's name? What does it mean?The name is based on 'Minority' "I don't need your authority" - so what better type of authority than one for all things Green Day?
Have any of the team members met the band?Yup. Different members of the GDA team have been lucky enough to meet and talk to Green Day on a few different occasions.
Does Green Day know about GDA?Yup. They've told us the few times that we've met them that they visited the site and liked what we did. So...yay! Actually, Tre told us "You guys need to update my drums page. You guys have a lot of shit wrong there." So we were both embarrassed that we had some mistakes, but ecstatic that he knew the site well enough to find our mistakes.
Billie Joe actually attened a party GDA helped organize in NYC when he was on Broadway with "American Idiot". Also, this
