Past honourees have included Ozzy Osbourne, Eminem, Whitney Houston, Queen and Bon Jovi.

For over 2 decades, they've introduced new generations of fans from around the globe to their impassioned lyrics and raw musical power. ''We're incredibly proud to have Green Day as this year's MTV EMA Global Icon Award honoree.''
