Congratulations are in order!

Green Day have just scored themselves their third UK Gold certified single off their 2004 epic 'American Idiot'.

Following 'Wake Me Up When September Ends' and 'American Idiot', which are both now certified Platinum in the UK, the latest to reach Gold is 'Boulevard Of Broken Dreams'!

'Boulevard Of Broken Dreams' was released as a single in 2005, and was the fourth single off the now seven-times Platinum certified 'American Idiot', which has sold over 2.1 million copies in the UK alone. Huge!

To earn a Gold certification in the UK, Green Day had to sell 400,000 units of 'Boulevard Of Broken Dreams' - so that's really quite the achievement.

Congratulations, Green Day!
