NEW YORK, July 30 -- MTV is taking over New York City and breaking down the walls as Green Day and P!nk are set to perform at the "2009 MTV Video Music Awards." Grammy Award(R) winning rockers Green Day return to the VMAs stage to perform a hit off their latest album, 21st Century Breakdown. After an explosive performance at last year's show, P!nk is determined to top herself this time around with a song from her multi-platinum selling album Funhouse. In addition, Katy Perry, Ne-Yo and Gossip Girl's Chace Crawford are the first presenters confirmed for the show. As previously announced, Russell Brand will host and Taylor Swift and Muse are set to perform.

"We are excited to be performing at the Video Music Awards," says Green Day's Billie Joe Armstrong. "You never know what's going to happen, and it's always a memorable experience for us."

Three songs from 21st Century Breakdown - including "21 Guns," "Know Your Enemy" and "East Jesus Nowhere" - are currently available to Rock Band(TM) owners for download. The Green Day tracks are the first in an exclusive partnership between MTV Games, Harmonix and Warner Music Group's Green Day to bring the band's songs to the Rock Band(TM) platform as downloadable content.
