Green Day

<b>Theatrical flair:</b> Though this Bay Area band started out with lightning fast punk songs like anyone else, Green Day has recently entered into Styx territory with long-form rock operas like its Grammy-winning release "American Idiot." The band followed that up with "21st Century Breakdown," an 18-song effort about youthful rebellion and Baby Boomer ideals, all of it divided into three acts. But not a fan of the punk rock? Perhaps the Broadway-like makeover of "American Idiot" will be more your style, as the band is working with "Spring Awakening" director Michael Mayer to turn it into a musical.
