Gimmel's second single Roviolla was released on January 27, 2003, and it got the third position in its first week in the charts. The song "American Idiot" has been hailed by the band as their public statement in reaction to the confusing and warped scene that is American pop culture. In 2002, almost 85 000 copies of the album were sold, and it was the most sold album of the year. Two of the tracks, "Jesus of Suburbia" and "Homecoming", composed by 5 different parts, are multi-movement suites that are both more than nine minutes long.

The first single they published was Etsit muijaa seuraavaa, which was released on October 25, 2002. The band chose not to try and re-create the stolen album but instead started over with a vow to be even more ambitious. Other than these meanings, "gimmel" also is a slang term for slapping man's face with one's penis [source: UrbanDictionary.com (http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=Gimmel)]. After completing 20 tracks — an impressive album according to those few who heard it — the master tapes were stolen from the studio. Gimmel is the third letter in the Hebrew alphabet, and it also means the number three. Fighting burnout after Warning:, the band went into the studio to write and record new material for an album. They also symbolised an endless and firm relationship. The front man "Fink" bears a striking resemblance to one Wilhelm Fink (Billie Joe Armstrong's pseudonym).

Once these parts joined together a groom, a bride, and a witness. This 5 piece band, at first look/listen appears to be Green Day. The word Gimmel means a renaissance wedding ring that contains three parts. In 2003, during time spent in the studio, a New Wave band appeared on the scene, known as The Network. They decided to adopt the name Gimmel. Their third major label album, Nimrod, was released in 1997, and Warning: in 2000. Ushma, Susanna, and Jenni continued. Though the album didn't approach the success of Dookie, it still sold several million copies in the U.S.

After a few weeks arguments between the girls increased, and Jonna decided to leave the band. They recorded a single called "J.A.R." in 1995, and followed it up with the album Insomniac. Members of the first Popstars band in Finland were Jenni Vartiainen, Susanna Korvala, Ushma Karnani, and Jonna Pirinen. Green Day's Woodstock gig included a gigantic mud fight between the band and the audience, leading to a melee in which Dirnt lost his front teeth. 25 girls made it to the final selection round. The band joined the lineups of both the Lollapalooza Festival and Woodstock 1994. 454 young women participated in the singing tests. Green Day had made their audience aware that they were not just another 'pop' band with a couple of hit singles.

In the Spring of 2002, a Popstars competition was held in Finland to find members to form a pop band. At the time this was regarded as quite controversial; nonetheless, the tour was a success. Gimmel was a Finnish girl group. In 1994, Green Day embarked on a nationwide tour and chose queercore band Pansy Division as their opening act. Eventually they decided to sign a deal with Reprise Records, leaving Lookout on friendly terms, and spent the greater part of the year recording their major label debut, Dookie, which proved to be an almost instant sensation, helped by extensive MTV airplay for the videos "Longview" and "Basket Case.". By 1993, Green Day had sold about 55,000 copies of each of their first albums, a huge amount for the independent punk scene in those days, and attracted a great deal of attention from the major labels.

They continued to tour through 1992 and 1993, ranging as far afield as the United Kingdom, Germany, Spain, Italy, Holland, Poland, and the Czech Republic (then still known as Czechoslovakia). The CD version also included the four tracks from the "Sweet Children" EP. During 1991, the band toured and played locally, building up a large following, and also wrote and recorded their second album, Kerplunk!, released on Lookout Records in January 1992. The combination worked out so well that he soon became Green Day's permanent drummer.

By this time the Lookouts had become mostly inactive, and Cool, now 17 and living in Berkeley, began playing with Green Day as a temporary replacement. After this tour, at the end of the summer of 1990, Al Sobrante left the band on what was supposed to be a temporary basis to attend college in Arcata, California. (In 1991, 1,039 Smoothed Out Slappy Hours was released which re-issued on CD 39/Smooth with 9 additional tracks from "Slappy" and "1,000 Hours".). Paul they recorded a four-song EP of some of their old songs for the local label Skene Records, and called it "Sweet Children".

Before leaving, they recorded another four-song EP called "Slappy," and while in Minneapolis-St. One year later, in April 1990, Green Day released their first album, 39/Smooth, and that summer set out in a van on their first national tour. The record came out, with the cover changed at the last minute to reflect the new name, in April 1989. Livermore, who also ran the Berkeley independent label Lookout! Records, immediately offered Sweet Children a deal, and in early 1989 they recorded their first EP, "1,000 Hours," and then decided, weeks before the EP release, to change their name to Green Day.

Only five kids showed up for the party, and there was no electricity in the house, so Sweet Children had to play using a generator and candlelight, but they played, as Lookouts singer/guitarist Lawrence Livermore put it, "As if they were the Beatles at Shea Stadium.". A couple months later, they played a high school party with the Lookouts in a remote mountain location near Willits, California, where Tré and Kain Kong of the Lookouts lived and attended school. Their first show was in 1988 at Rod's Hickory Pit in Rodeo, California. Al Sobrante), on drums.
