Green Day is a rock band that has been
around since 1989. Their
first cd dropped in 1990. The members are Billie Joe Armstrong, Mike Dirnt, and Tre Cool. I think they are a great
band, but when their
new cd "American Idiot" came out, a bunch of poseurs started to listen
to them, without knowing or caring
about what their
lyrics mean or that they had been
around before many
of them were even born. Alot of true fans blame "American Idiot" for causing so many
poseurs, but i think it's the media's fault. Green Day's new cd may be more
pop-ish than their
older stuff, but rock music itself has recently
become very mainstream.
poseur- "Have you heard that new band, Green
me- "Dude, they had 8 other cd's before their new one!"
poseur- "Whatever, but that Holiday" song is so cool!"
me- "Do you even know
who they're talking about?"
poseur- "No, TRL didn't say anything
