Green Day: Rock Band announced

More popular than The Beatles?

Punk poppers Green Day are set to follow in the footsteps of The Beatles with a new Rock Band spin-off.

The game was announced during the Spike Video Game Awards at the weekend. The three members of Green Day made the reveal in a video and a subsequent press released confirmed the game for PS3, Wii and Xbox 360. Unlike The Beatles: Rock Band, Green Day: Rock Band's tracklist will be fully exportable to Rock Band and Rock Band 2.

Green Day formed at the end of the eighties and caught the public's eye with album Dookie, released in 1994. "Basket Case" was the best known of the songs. The band plateaued at the turn of the century but rocketed back with American Idiot in 2004.

The new game will whisk players through a sight-seeing tour of the band's career, taking in venues and attractions and musical influences along the way.

Green Day: Rock Band is due out next year.
