A kickass rock NOT PUNK band.
In truth, punk is just conformity, just like the preppy pricks. Punk is just a bunch of hardcore kids who get together and pretend they are better than eachother.
Therefore Green Day IS NOT PUNK. They are more pop and rock than punk.
They are a great band, with great lyrics, to relate to suburban teenage boredom, the problems of the suburban kids, the plights of corporate rebel f*ck ups. While some people say it is pathetic to write songs for so called poor little rich people, those people are pricks that think money is everything, and that rich people are automatically perfect and happy, perpetuating their own hate for themselves, seeking out an enemy (AKA the rich).
All in all, Green Day is a great rock band.
It's funny how every time Green Day comes out with a great album, all these pricks who want to sound hardcore diss the new album to sound badass and say, "I only like the old album, look at how hardcore I am!" They are the true conformists.
PS American Idiot = their best album in my opinion, and it definitely doesn't suck.
GREEN DAY KICKS (YOUR HATER) ASS!
