2023 wrap-up: The Saviors era begins

It’s been another huge year of growth for GreenDay.fm with record traffic and popular new additions to the site including a Song Guide, completely revamped Singles & Side Projects sections and the launch of our new companion site – GreenDayLive.fm, and we thank you all for being a part of it! With the impending release of Green Day’s 14th studio album Saviors, and a huge stadium tour to follow, it promises to be an exciting year to come.

But before we move on to the year ahead it’s time to wrap up 2023 by looking back at the new stories, releases, songs and r/GreenDay posts that had us talking in the last 12 months.

Top News stories

Last year’s top stories were all speculation about “1972”, which at the time we all presumed would have been released sometime this year, obviously that didn’t happen. But this year we did finally get the album announcement we’ve all been waiting for along with three singles, epic secret shows and some headliner performances at huge festivals like When We Were Young.

  1. Green Day announce new single releasing Oct 24th (Oct 1)

Fans were treated to two amazing box set’s this year celebrating 25 years of Nimrod and 30 years of Dookie which were full of demos, outtakes, unreleased songs and live sets from their era’s. Interestingly, neither release actually had their anniversaries in 2023 with Nimrod‘s having passed the year prior while Dookie‘s is in 2024.
