Green day are a punk rock band, originated in California, being going 1988 to present. Billie Joe, Mike Dirnt and Tre Cool are the members. Their roles are front man on guitar and vocals, bass player and back up vocals and drummer respectively.Their name used to be sweet children but they changed it.Albums include Nimrod, Dookie, Kerplunk, American idiot, international super 1039/smoothed out slappy hours.Many people believe that Green day became sell-outs after releasing American idiot. That is not true. Those people are the “old green day” fans, say that its now not cool to like them because lots of people in high school do, but that’s just sad and ignorant because some fans, like me, couldn’t even walk when Dookie(1994) was released.The 1st song I heard was American idiot, I am ashamed to say that was on MTV, but it wasn’t my TV thank god.I thought wow this is a great song, so I downloaded the album and did a bit of research on the band. I downloaded their old stuff to, and its all equally awesome. I am unable to find a reason why that makes me a poser, but all you lot that do, please keep your ignorant comments to yourselves. Also, many people only like them because they see Billie Joe as “sooo hot init”, which is wrong, but I’m not denying that he’s very sexy, but he’s married with two kids! I listen for them for the music, but its totally ok to think Billie is hot. The lyrics are really meaningful, for example, in basket case.. do you have the time, to listen to me whine, about nothing and everything all at once. This is a phase many go through, feeling depressed but wondering what about and whether its everything or nothing, and this songs shows it in a kick ass way.

Green Day is a seriously kick ass band. No matter what anyone says, they aren't sellouts...and i seriously hope they never become sellouts...i don't much cre for american idiot (except for boulevard that song kicks major ass), but that is just my personal opinion...and anyone who has their album Warning check out castaway that song is so under-apprecciated and shoulda been on their international superhits album.
International Superhits, Dookie, Warning, Nimrod, American Idiot...

A really good band. For those of you people who are saying that American Idiot is just all politically related, you are completley wrong. It says the real way of American living. Normal people have to deal with drugs and sex and real life problems everyday(streets, schools, etc). They just say what they really think about American people and life. And for those of you that are saying that Billie Joe can't sing live, you need to have an ear checkup. He sings really good. Just because they have some stupid teenyboppers and posers saying they are hot and sexy doesn't mean they are a poser or bad band. That's not theirfault. You have to actually listen and hear their songs and lyrics to see they are an excellent band. They say what they really think and I think that their albums are great. And If you hate Green Day well, this is just my opinion, and you have to respect that. And if you hate Green Day that much well then don't listen to their songs and don't be wasting your time posting nasty stuff over here. Cuz they don't even care what you think
I think Green Day is a really good band. If you don't like them, I don't care.
