Green Day Target Remix Team

Pop rockers GREEN DAY have issued a cease-and-desist order in a bid to stop DJ team DEAN GRAY from making their AMERICAN IDIOT remixes available for download on the net.

The duo - who are called PARTY BEN and TEAM 9 - have already posted their work on the website americanedit.net, but Green Day's record label Reprise/Warner Music has taken issue with their online content.

Party Ben tells MTV.com, "There are also some tracks we did that created entirely new songs, and they're amazing. So we decided to put the entire mashed-up album online. Unfortunately, we were emailed a cease-and-desist order, at which point we shut down.

"What we've done here is as funny as it is groundbreaking, and I feel that we've seeded the Internet with the music, just like (DANGER MOUSE's) THE GREY ALBUM. So now we'll see what happens.

"I mean, Danger Mouse went on to produce GORILLAZ's DEMON DAYS album, so maybe something like that will happen to me. If DAMON ALBARN calls, I'll listen, for sure. But if someone from Warner calls, I'll probably put them through to my voicemail."
