Since they first formed in 1987, they have released eight full length studio albums that have influenced at least three generations and spawned countless garage bands. In order to celebrate the band’s 25-plus years, they decided to create three new albums, entitled ¡Uno!, ¡Dos! and ¡Tré!, all released in 2012. In 2015 the band was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, and they’re currently enjoying a succesfull run of their “American Idiot” musical. A look back at Green Day’s career would typically include their greatest hits, but because it would be more fun to look at some of their most sexually charged and perverted material, that is exactly what this list is going to contain.

5) Dominated Love Slave

From the 1992 album Kerplunk, this surprising rockabilly song was the first indication that Green Day was going to tackle the topic of deviant sexual behavior. With lyrics such as “You can spank me when I do not behave,” the band showcased they were interested in BDSM long before your girlfriend or wife decided that Christian Grey was a sex god.

4) All By Myself

Billie Joe Armstrong’s silly vocals make this hidden track from 1994’s Dookie slightly less creepy than the lyrics would have otherwise suggested. After all, the entire song is based around the idea of chronic masturbation with a bit of stalker-like tendencies thrown in just for fun.

3) King for a Day

Although some oblivious fans have somehow missed it, lead singer Billie Joe Armstrong has always been open about the fact that he is bisexual. He has also used some of Green Day’s songs to explore unconventional sexual themes and so-called alternative lifestyles. “King for a Day” from 1997’s Nimrod is an extremely upbeat song about cross-dressing that features a brass section and never fails to get the entire audience dancing each time they play it live. Armstrong’s flamboyant actions during each performance of this song further illustrate his commitment to teaching the frat boys in the crowd that it’s okay to be different. Or, in his own words, “Don’t knock it until you’ve tried it.”

2) Blood, Sex and Booze

Warning, released in 2000, featured another song about BDSM. Unlike “Dominated Love Slave,” however, this track did not use humor to present the topic. Instead, it is a straight forward punk rock song about the pleasure that can be associated with pain and dominance in the bedroom.

1) Longview

Although it’s not nearly as kinky as the other songs on this list, Green Day definitely gets credit for introducing the majority of their audience to their music with a single that talks about teenage apathy and masturbation. When Dookie was released in 1994, it was Green Day’s third full-length album, but they were relatively unknown until radios around the world started playing this song.

Green Day’s front man Billie Joe Armstrong has announced that much of their new material focuses on sex. The video for the single “Oh Love” definitely illustrates this point, especially the NSFW unedited version that is a Playboy exclusive.
