Green Day's first two albums, "1,039/Smoothed Out Slappy Hours" and "Kerplunk!," will be reissued for the first time by Reprise on Dec. 19. The sets were originally released on Lookout! in 1991 and 1992 respectively, and were reissued in 2004.

"Kerplunk!" does not include any bonus features, but "1,039/Smoothed Out Slappy Hours" replicates the extra content found on the 2004 Lookout! reissue. Among it is 20 minutes of live performances from 1990-91, Billie Joe Armstrong's handwritten lyrics, show flyers and a 1991 radio interview.

The two albums set the stage for Green Day's 1994 mainstream, major-label breakthrough, "Dookie," which has sold 7.8 million copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan. To date, "1,039/Smoothed Out Slappy Hours" has shifted 585,000 units, while "Kerplunk!" has sold 699,000.

As previously reported, Green Day is at work on the follow-up to its 2004 smash "American Idiot." The group's collaboration with U2, "The Saints Are Coming," is No. 27 this week on Billboard's Modern Rock chart.
