Green Day's Revolution Radio hits No. 1

Posted on

Green Day’s Revolution Radio earned No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart this week, topping new releases like Norah Jones’ Day Breaks, which came in at No. 2, and OneRepublic’s Oh My My, which debuted at No. 3.

Revolution Radio became Green Day’s third No. 1 album and earned 95,000 equivalent album units, according to Nielsen Music, Billboard reports. Ninety thousand of those units were traditional album sales.

Green Day’s first No. 1 album was American Idiot, which debuted in 2004. Their next No. 1 occurred in 2009, when they released 21st Century Breakdown.

Revolution Radio, their 12th studio album, was recorded in their hometown, Oakland, California, and the band worked without a producer for the first time since 1992’s Kerplunk.

“We’re ready to rock,” drummer Tré Cool told EW this summer. “We’re going into this record cycle with a lot of gratitude, a lot of humility. We just really do enjoy the s— out of being in a rock & roll band with our best friends.”
