Green Day Join the Rock Band Family

As games like Rock Band and Guitar Hero continue to find success with each new release, a new trend of making games based around a single artist or group has become increasingly popular (and lucrative). The Beatles did it. Aerosmith did it. The latest to hop on the bandwagon? None other than Green Day.

Harmonix, who own the Rock Band franchise (and are owned themselves by MTV) announced at Spike TV's Video Game Awards that in 2010, Rock Band: Green Day will be released. This sounds like a great venture for Green Day, as they have a built-in audience of older fans, as well as those who have discovered their newer records by playing the songs in Rock Band.
