NEW YORK, July 30 -- MTV is taking over New York City and breaking down the walls as Green Day and P!nk are set to perform at the "2009 MTV Video Music Awards." Grammy Award(R) winning rockers Green Day return to the VMAs stage to perform a hit off their latest album, 21st Century Breakdown.

"We are excited to be performing at the Video Music Awards," says Green Day's Billie Joe Armstrong. "You never know what's going to happen, and it's always a memorable experience for us."

Three songs from 21st Century Breakdown - including "21 Guns," "Know Your Enemy" and "East Jesus Nowhere" - are currently available to Rock Band(TM) owners for download. The Green Day tracks are the first in an exclusive partnership between MTV Games, Harmonix and Warner Music Group's Green Day to bring the band's songs to the Rock Band(TM) platform as downloadable content.
