A punk rock band who was originally pretty damn good. That was until they switched to crappy guitar riffs and lucrative lyrics. One of their more recent songs, "American Idiot," called for an end to the Bush Administration, understandably so. However they did so with idiotic testimonies to dumb Americans, and thus further perpetuated the FALSE stereotype of the democrat, as democrats are wrongly considered of being whiney and annoying, just like "American Idiot." If Green Day truly wanted to make a difference in people's political opinions, perhaps they could've written a song that accurately depicted the Neo-conservative movement, instead of singing shitty songs all the way to the bank, while the rest of the rich, white, republican world sang along with them.

They've also written an even more recent emo song, "Boulevard of Broken Dreams" which is by far one of the most annoying, senseless, and ridiculous songs of all time.
1. Wow, you know I'm a liberal, but I think that Green Day is one pussy-whipped band now a days.

2. Instead of listening to crappy Green Day boast about their "understanding" of politics, you should listen to David Bowie or Nirvana, artists who actually know what the hell they're talking about.

I had a lot of respect for green day until the came out with american idiot. Which means they sold out and started to do the waaaaa our life sucks emo shit. But I still give a lot of credit to them for every album before american idiot.
the sadest thing about green day is there is actually 4 people in there they barely ever show the 4th guy but he does all the solo's. at least on the new album.

A band that falls under many different generes of music but calls itself Punk Rock, much to the chagrin of many people who believe that punk rock can be so easily defined as anything that Green Day is not. This band also is subject to much argument, especially between its early fans and its rencent fans.

Its albums include "Slappy," "Dookie," "Insomniac", "Nimrod", "Warning", "American Idiot", and "21st Century Breakdown". Its most recent albums, American Idiot and 21st Century Breakdown, have expanded Green Day's fandom to a wider range the their previous albums, causing many hardline punk rock proponents to call green day "sellouts," and many of its former fand to call them pop rock, due to their constantly changing music type.

In short: Green Day is a good band that falls prey to media and fan hypocrisy
Original Green Day fan: "American Idiot Sucks. They've Become nothin but pop rock idols."

New age Green Day fan: "So what if their different? Their trying to make a statement! What did they do before? All they used to sing about was being high or spun out".

probably one of the best bands ever in punk rock history. all of their old stuff is amazing, and some of their new stuff is okay. most of the newer fans of Green Day very much so want to be punk, but obviously fail poorly. also, some of the newer fans feel the need to spell the bands name 'Greenday'.
Green Day= amazing. fucking. band.

To do a 'green day' is to physically spread your butt cheeks apart, squat, and defecate onto the grave of a real punk musician.

Why do so many people have to talk about Green Day. They're an amazing band. & they dont suck! I like American Idiot but i like there older stuff. Just because a bunch of punk/scene/emo wannabes only like their new stuff but not the old stuff doesn mean that EVERY teenager is like that. I enjoy Green Day's awesome guitar, amazing drums, incredible bass, and lovable lyrics. Im not a frickin wannabe like some other teens are. And so what if a bunch of people think theyre cuz news flash THEY ARE. But thats not why some people like them.

So dont judge every teenager who likes Green Day. Cuz there are fans like me who arent wannabes & like their old stuff better
& their new stuff is good, i just like the older stuff better
So back off assholes!
Punk: "I love Green Day"
Annoying Person: "oh green day sucks, you're just a wannabe"
Punk: "no im not. I love their old stuff better."
Annyoing Person: "Green Day still sucks."
Punk: "Why cuz their hotter than you AND better musicans? Not to mention famous unlike you?"
Annoying Person: "whatever"
Punk: "Go fuck off and stop judging Green Day fans"
