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!"
