Personally, not my cup of tea. I wouldn't really call them punk, as they are more rock. I can see why people like them, but personally I don't think they're all that great. They have some good songs, but try too hard to be rebellious. Honestly sometimes I think that they are making fun of punk rock. I think they kind of try to be like Anti-Flag and Pennywise (real good punk bands) but instead it comes out sounding like pop music. That' s what it is. Pop music.
green day is an okay band.
Green Day, A band that teens are going wild over, who probably don't know that they even had any other albums besides American Idiot and 21st Century Breakdown. A true Green Day fan would know about: Insomniac, Dookie, Nimrod, Kerplunk, Working Class Hero, and Warning. Now all you hear is girls screaming on about "OMG Billie Joe is so cute have you heard there new song 21 Guns OMG OMG!! There first album American Idiot was sooooo good OMG!!"
Girl 1: OMG have you heard of that new pop band Green Day!!??
Me: New? they've been around for almost 20 years!!
Girl 1: nuh uh!
Girl 2: yah they have
Me: thanks you must be a true fan
Girl 2: yah...my favorite album is Nimrod
Girl 1: Nimrod?? Whats a Nimrod??
Me: one of their albums
Girl 1: wait...
Girl 2: yah...
Girl 1: so your saying they have more than two albums...
Me: NO FRICKIN DUH!!!!
Girl 1: well i like their new stuff
Me: there new stuff is okay but it got to pop-ish
Girl 1: i thought they were always pop-ish
Girl 2: nooooo they used to be Punk
Me: COMPLETE PUNK
Girl 1: whatever
Me: non-believer of The Green Day
Girl 1: what
Me: nothing...you didn't hear anything
Green Day is a punk-rock band .. some people disagree b/c they "sold out".. but billie always says it was the atmosphere of punk rock he liked the best... not the unsuccessfulness... there are the people who say that Green Day's recent cds are mediocre ... they are not. They have a depth that not many musicians have claim to. If you can't see that, you are not really listening to the words very well ... the whole american idiot cd wraps into one story, thats why the musical was made... 21st century breakdown also follows a story line of christian and gloria... it is for the class of thirteen, 2013, meaning the future generation .. telling them to stand up for the truth ... do not settle for lies... their older CD's were great as well but never had as much depth as these two .. my favourite song though is an older one .. minority ... you have to admit though green day before Warning was random songs about love, insomnia, masturbation etc. On another note people are saying that the fans who became fans after boulevard are stupid teenie boppers.. I personally had never listened to the radio before then .. all i had ever heard of before then was michael jackson, nelly furtado, vanilla ice, the beatles.. and other random things my dad played for me... so its not really my fault if I have never heard of a band... you cant say I just like the punk pop sound cause i love all their songs... I have never come across a green day song I didn't love.
Cynic: "You teenie bopper!! You only like Green Day for Billie Joe and its pop mediocre sound!"
Me: "I'm eighteen actually and I had never heard of Green Day until Boulevard of Broken Dreams and actually I didn't actually like the song until I listened carefully to the words...also I have all their cd's including 39/smooth and foxboro hot tubs... btw.. billie joe could be my father... his son Joseph is the same age as my brother... so run along now!"
Best fucking band in the world!
A: "i've got tickets for Blink182 tonight."
B: "fuck these blink-guys! lets go to Green Day!!!"
punk rock band who are very telanted at writing music and playing instruments,they are NOT pop rock!just because it hit the charts that does not make them pop rockers! they are original stilish and individual,sure they should be remembered by dookie, insomnic, nimrod, and warning but theyre new album is realy good!
their music is about real life and politics not like these whinos who sing about 'true love' and 'shaking there ass' and 'how sad they are.'
most greenday fans stoped liking greenday after theyre amirican idiot album because they said it was 'to comercial' this is bollocks you would love theyre new album if it wasnt popular!
fred: green days drummer is tre cool he sure knows how to play those drums!
Me:yes,and because they have tallent it cant be pop music!
fred:got a fag
Me:no, WHATS THAT GOT TO DO WITH THIS!!!

Teeny- Who's Green Day?
Green Day are just an amazing punk rock band that started in the mid-80s as Sweet Children with vocalist and guitarist, Billie Joe Armstrong, bassist Mike Dirnt and drummer Al Sobrante (John Kiffmeyer). They changed their name to Green Day, and released 1,039 Smoothed Out Slappy Hours, then, with a new drummer by the name of Tre Cool, released Kerplunk!
In 1993, they signed with Reprise records, after being bugged for so long. They chose Reprise because their soon-to-be producer, Rob Cavallo, was a musician himself, who spoke their language. Dookie was released in 1994, and went diamond. Thus causing a bunch of "hardcore punks", to start calling them "sellouts".
Between Dookie to American Idiot, Green Day released Insomniac, Nimrod, Warning, International Superhits and Shenanigans. There has been marriage, children, divorce, girlfriends, music, fights, arrests, etc...
In 2004, Green Day released the truly birlliant punk rock opera, American Idiot. It is an album that follows Green Day's signature themes of social problems, but with a more political ATMOSPHERE, simply to relate to the present times. It is more a story of all the member's journeys. Hints from previous records had indicated Green Day coming to this point in their career; the expiramenting; the use of more than three chords and different instruments...
More rants about Green Day being "sell-outs" begin. The fact that Green Day are now attracting a much WIDER audience is a ridiculous reason to disl...
