Green Day to launch boardshorts
Surf-wear brand Billabong has enlisted Green Day to design their own pair of boardshorts.
The special limited edition Green Day Mass Hysteria boardshorts feature the band's logo and an image of the punk rock trio.
Lead singer Billie Joe Armstrong said the group "enjoy working on creative projects" and had "a lot of fun" coming up with the design.
The boardshort will be prominently worn by members of Billabong's surf team, containing many top professional surfers.
"We expect the result to be one of the best selling boardshorts of the year in many of the retail outlets where the product was carried," said Rob McCarty, Billabong Men's design director. "Music and surfing are an easy fit."
It is not the first product the band have put their name to. A version of the Rock Band video game exclusively based around the band and their songs is currently in development.
Green Day play three UK gigs this year, including one at Wembley Stadium on June 19th.
