(CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — Green Day is the first band to offer collectible branded CD-Recordable discs (CD-Rs) to store Green Day music and media files. The five CD-Rs feature classic, full-color artwork from Green Day albums "Dookie," "Nimrod," "Warning" and their new album "American Idiot," as well as a rare photo of the band. A coordinated color slimline case is included with each CD-R.
The Green Day CD-R 5 Pack is currently available online at greendaymusic.com ( http://www.greendaymusic.com/gd_store_cdrs.html) for $7.99 plus free shipping. Starting September 28, Apple's iTunes Music Store, which offers Green Day's entire catalog digitally, will sell the CD-Rs through Green Day's artist page in iTunes, allowing fans to legally download "American Idiot" or any of their albums, then burn it to the CD-Rs. Reprise Records is also making the CD-R Pack available at retail.
Green Day will launch an extensive North American tour beginning in October. –Bob Grossweiner and Jane Cohen
