Visually speaking, Green Day have always veered toward the animated. So, if anything, it's surprising that it took until 2007 for the band to receive the yellow-skinned, four-fingered treatment from the Simpsons. The band members appeared as themselves in The Simpsons Movie, performing on a barge and playing a punked-up version of the show's iconic theme song – after which they're pelted with trash (shades of Woodstock '94?) and left to drown in Lake Springfield. Which likely rules out any chance of a returning role in the much-discussed movie sequel . . .
