Green Day's greatest hits collection 'God's Favorite Band' has achieved a significant milestone, spending 260 weeks on the UK albums chart - exactly five years. This marks the first time a Green Day album has reached this longevity milestone on the prestigious chart.

Released in 2017, 'God's Favorite Band' has demonstrated remarkable staying power, resonating with UK listeners year after year. The album, which compiles many of the California punk rock band's most iconic hits, rose to No. 60 from No. 67 this week, further cementing its status as a fan favorite.

Over its impressive run, 'God's Favorite Band' has climbed as high as No. 22 on the UK albums chart. While this is Green Day's first album to cross the 5-year mark, the band has enjoyed other chart successes in the UK. Their seminal albums 'American Idiot' and 'Dookie' have also had extended stays, with 125 and 114 weeks on the chart, respectively.

Green Day's enduring popularity in the UK is a testament to their impact and influence. For over three decades, the trio of Billie Joe Armstrong, Mike Dirnt, and Tré Cool have been delivering their signature blend of punk rock, pop hooks, and socially conscious lyrics. Their music continues to resonate with fans across generations.

While 'God's Favorite Band' has reached a significant milestone, it still has a way to go to match some of the longest-charting albums in UK history. Bob Marley and the Wailers' 'Legend,' Queen's 'Greatest Hits,' and ABBA's 'Gold' compilation have all surpassed 1,000 weeks on the chart, showcasing the enduring appeal of these iconic acts.

As Green Day's 'God's Favorite Band' celebrates its 5-year anniversary on the UK albums chart, it solidifies the band's status as enduring rock icons.
