Green Day

In a move that’s not all that surprising, pop-punk trio Green Day have signed on to perform at the 2012 MTV Video Music Awards. The show will air Sept. 6 with funnyman Kevin Hart hosting. Of course, the guys are no MTV newbies, and their upcoming stint is actually the fifth time that the group have sprung up on the show.

So, what should we expect from the performance? According to, the trio are planning to play fresh tracks from their upcoming trilogy of albums, ¡Uno!, ¡Dos! and ¡Tré! on the show.

¡Uno! is scheduled to hit stories and online outlets on Sept. 25, while ¡Dos! and ¡Tré! are set for release on Nov. 13, and Jan. 15, respectively.
