GREEN DAY RAISE FUNDS FOR TSUNAMI VICTIMS

The band offer the proceeds from the sales of their latest single to the disaster fund...

GREEN DAY are donating all royalties from the iTUNES sales of their last single ‘BOULEVARD OF BROKEN DREAMS’ to help victims of the Asian tsunami.

All funds raised from the song will go to the Red Cross International Response Fund.

“This is the worst global disaster we’ve seen in our lifetime,” frontman Billie Joe Armstrong said in a statement. “We felt it was important to take part in the relief efforts any way we could.”
