The smaller of America’s performing rights organisations, SESAC, yesterday announced it was now representing Green Day, whose performing rights previously sat with its bigger rival ASCAP.

Confirming the new recruits, SESAC CEO John Josephson told reporters: “Green Day are an iconic band that has created important, diverse and unforgettable records. Billie Joe, Mike and Tre are phenomenal songwriters and musicians whose influence on the musical landscape is immeasurable. We are thrilled and humbled to welcome them to the SESAC family”.

For their part, the band said in a statement: “We are thrilled to be signed to SESAC and excited to partner with them for the next phase of our musical adventure”.
