Green Day is a band that people either love or hate. It is a piece-of-crap poser band formed in California. Although they have one or two decent songs (i.e. Good Riddance, Basket Case), most of their tracks would be considered throwaways if made by any other artist. Although his vocals are half-decent, Billie Joe Armstrong needs to take some guitar lessons, because his playing is very sub-par. He doesn't have a single good or difficult guitar solo. Although the drumming is good, it is the only part of the band that can be described that way. If you want good rock, try listening to bands like AC/DC or the Red Hot Chili Peppers. Angus Young and John Frusciante, among the greatest guitarists in history, can play their instruments like the true professionals they are. And they don't wear mascara.
American Idiot (although many Green Day fans admit this themselves) is a terrible song, and although the message is a good one, the musicianship is that of a band not yet out of the garage.

a bad excuse for a band that makes teh same song with different lyrics again and again. any bands from the past 20 years are just rip offs of the ramones, led zeppelin, iron maiden, judas priest, the sex pistols and other bands like them

An Alternative/Punk Rock band from Berkely California (Near me. Lol Californian Pride) I am not the HUGEST fan of Green Day, I like a few songs from American Idiot, and several from Nimrod, Dookie, and Insomniac. I think they're just alright, but I can think of a lot of bands better than them. I don't consider myself a die-hard fan of them, maybe not even a big fan. They're a decent band overall, but not my devotion. More of a My Chemical Romance kinda kid :D
American idiot was when Green Day really took flight. It's an ok album, but I prefer Nimrod and Dookie.

American Idiots who just released their new CD "American Idiot" which is by far the worst Green Day CD ever to be released and also far worse than anything you would have ever imagined being released by this great fucking band.

greenday rock ass my first album from them was insomniac and then after that I borrowed dookie from my female cousin, it was trashy as hell but it kicked major ass with songs like welcome to paradise and she and burnt im not growing up im just burning out and i stepped in line to walk amongst the dead dont know what it means but who cares.
Insomniac by far though is their most punk album. I used to listen to this album all the time in the car the only god damn casseette going. Everyday to here and back , once my cousin borrowed it for a year and it got warped from the sun because it was on the dash but it sounded even more awesome, note he listened to that cd a shit load to and if it wasn't for me he probably wouldn't be listening to alternative music today he bought the cd later on because i saw it in his collection. he got into nirvana alot to, to bad kurts dead got all messed up from the drugs.
