We're going to be featuring a new band once a week in a section called "Band of the Week". We're looking for bands to feature, mainly smaller bands that Green Day fans would be interested in. If you're part of a band, or know of one, send us an email to bands@greendayauthority.com with links to their site/myspace and some info about them.

Paste Magazine's December/January issue lists "The Greatest Riffs of the 21st Century (So Far)." Green Day's American Idiot comes in at #6: "With what sounds like a lost Sex Pistols riff, Green Day kicks off its greatest album with its greatest fretboard statement."
The top five rankings: 1) Seven Nation Army by The White Stripes, 2) Take Me Out by Franz Ferdinand, 3) No One Knows by Queens of the Stone Age, 4) Are You Gonna Be My Girl by Jet, 5) Float On by Modest Mouse.

Fuse aired three programs featuring Green Day to kick off the "Videos That Rocked the World" ten-day special. Two of the shows, "Planet Rock" and "Loaded," were specific to Green Day. And on "No. 1 Countdown-25 Greatest Videos," Green Day's Basket Case video was at #5, chosen by votes from viewers.

If you have MHD (MTV's new high-def TV channel), Storytellers with Green Day will be broadcast today at noon, on Thursday at 1:30 am, and on Sunday at 11 pm, eastern time. It's the same show that originally aired in 2005.
