BY SEAN O’CONNELL

Circle your calendars, American Idiots. MTV Games, Harmonix and Reprise / Warner Bros. Records have announced that the anticipated “Green Day: Rock Band” will be unleashed on June 8.

A standalone music video game, “Green Day” puts players on stage as a member of the San Francisco power trio, shredding through renditions of 47 Green Day hits like “Brain Stew,” “Jaded,” “Hitchin’ a Ride,” “American Idiot,” “Wake Me Up When September Ends” and “Boulevard of Broken Dreams.”All 47 tracks are fully exportable, providing players with the opportunity to play the songs in any other “Rock Band” title. In addition, the six Green Day tracks already available in the Rock Band Music Store as downloadable content can be played in “Green Day: Rock Band” with added vocal harmonies, unique performance visuals, and exclusive archival material.

As players unlock additional content, they’ll be able to access more than 100 collectible images, and more than 40 minutes of rare and unreleased video from interviews, outtakes and performances.

“Green Day: Rock Band” will be available for the Xbox 360, the PlayStation 3 computer entertainment system and the Wii system from Nintendo. It has a suggested retail price of $59.99, and is rated “T” for Teen by the ESRB.
