GREEN DAY TO BE HONORED WITH THE GLOBAL ICON AWARD AT THE 2016 MTV EMAS

G-Eazy, Charli XCX, Tinie Tempah, and Idris Elba Added to Line-Up of Presenters

New York / Rotterdam (November 1, 2016) - The 2016 MTV EMAs just got a little more punk with the addition of global phenomenon Green Day to the star-studded lineup. The award-winning band will rock the stage at Ahoy Rotterdam and receive the MTV Global Icon Award at the 2016 MTV EMAs on Sunday, November 6, airing at 8:00 p.m. EST in the U.S. Joining Green Day are additional presenters, including chart-topping rapper G-Eazy, pop superstar Charli XCX, global hip-hop artist Tinie Tempah and multi-talent actor-musician Idris Elba.

Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees and three-time MTV EMA "Best Rock" winning band Green Day has sold millions of records worldwide and released dozens of chart-topping singles over the last two decades. Revolution Radio, the band's 12th studio album featuring hit single "Bang Bang," was released this October to great critical and fan acclaim, and the group is up for two additional EMAs at this year's show, including "Best Live" and "Best Rock." With an incredible body of work that reflects the complexities of the time in which it was created, the rock trio has taken their music into exciting new mediums over the years, including the creation of the musical American Idiot based on Green Day's multi-platinum selling album by the same name and the 2016 film Ordinary World starring frontman Billie Joe Armstrong and featuring an original song by the band. As recipients of the MTV Global Icon award, Green Day joins a coveted list of some of the biggest names in music of all time, including Duran Duran (2015), Ozzy Osbourne (2014), Eminem (2013), Whitney Houston (2012), Queen (2011) and Bon Jovi (2010).

"Green Day is without question, one of the worlds' most influential rock bands. For over 2 decades, they've introduced new generations of fans from around the globe to their impassioned lyrics and raw musical power," said Bruce Gillmer, Executive Vice President of Talent and Music Programming / Events, Viacom International Media Networks. "We're incredibly proud to have Green Day as this year's MTV EMA Global Icon Award honoree."

Green Day joins an already star-studded EMA lineup hosted and featuring a performance by Bebe Rexha, with additional performances by Bruno Mars, Kings of Leon, OneRepublic, Martin Garrix, Afrojack, Shawn Mendes, DNCE, Lukas Graham and Zara Larsson with appearances by G-Eazy, Charli XCX, Tinie Tempah, Idris Elba, Jaden Smith, Nina Dobrev, Deepika Padukone, Jourdan Dunn, Winnie Harlow and more.

Additional performers and presenters will be announced shortly.

Produced by Green Day and recorded in Oakland, Revolution Radio is a potent 12-track blitz of angst-ridden anthems that unites Green Day's fully formed stylistic approach with lyrical themes that address the complexities and uncertainties of modern day existence. Musically, the album is raw, visceral, and fearless - solidifying the band's reign as one of the leading voices in rock music. Inspired by recent events, "Bang Bang" marks a welcome return from a band with more to say than ever.
