Watch: Green Day Perform ‘Bobby Sox’ And ‘Basket Case’ To Accept iHeartRadio Landmark Award

Green Day were presented a Landmark Award at the 2024 iHeartRadio Music Awards, and played two fan favourites to mark the occasion.

The awards ceremony was held on Monday, April 01 at Los Angeles’ Dolby Theater, with RnB girl group TLC also picking up a Landmark Award.

Fellow pop-punk icon Avril Lavigne was on hand to present the award to Green Day, with a heartfelt summary of their achievements, sharing:

“When their album ‘Dookie’ came out in 1994, Green Day shook the world. It was an essential album of the nineties and a punk-rock masterpiece. 

“And when their rock opera ‘American Idiot’ came out ten years later, in 2004, it debuted at Number 1, produced five hit singles and even spawned a Broadway musical.

“And tonight, iHeart Radio is honouring Green Day with The Landmark Award, to celebrate the 20th anniversary of ‘American Idiot’ and the 30th anniversary of ‘Dookie’ – together those two epic albums sold close to 40 million albums.

“This May, Green Day will be going on a world stadium tour for their new album ‘Saviors’, and playing both ‘Dookie’ and ‘American Idiot’ in their entirety. This is one hell of a band, one of my all-time favourites, Green Day.”

And with those celebratory words, it was only right for Billie Joe Armstrong and co. to smash through two tracks – ‘Saviors’ track ‘Bobby Sox’ and all-time classic ‘Basket Case’.

Have a watch of their performance of both tracks below.
