1. A day spent smoking weed, usually out of boredom.
2. A pop-punk band formed in 1988, with many good songs out like "When I come around", "Time of Your Life", "Why do you want him?" and more. I discovered them in 5th grade when hearing Boulevard of Broken Dreams on the radio. I looked them up and, well, fell in love with their old stuff as well as new (but preferring pre-American Idiot). But then, I discovered something in 6th grade called real punk. I really got into The Stooges
, The Ramones
, The Clash
, Sex Pistols
, etc. A year later, I listened to American Idiot for the first time in years and came to a conclusion: that (new) Green Day, while being pseudo-punk and somewhat annoying, is a pretty unique band. Compare them to the other stuff that's out today!
HOWEVER, Green Day started an epidemic of a new breed of poser. It's when someone aged 8-13 believes they are "seeeeew punk rawk" when they listen to Green Day, Blink 182
, or Avril Lavigne
. They oftentimes don't even know who the bands I mentioned previously are. Those who like Green Day are often seen bashing Bush without even knowing if or even why he is a bad president. Now, not everyone who listens to said music is this way, just a vast majority. Not saying bad things about everyone who likes Green Day, just those who listen to them only and try to be something they're not. To conclude, a decent band.
1. Jimmy's so baked. It's definitely a Green Day...
2. Actual conversation:
Poser in my class: I just love Green Day omg!
Me: Do you listen to anything else??
Poser: Well my favorite artist is Avril Lavigne. It's just pure punk rock!
Me: Dude, thats not punk. Have you even heard of the Ramones? The Clash? The Sex Pistols?
Poser: Well, I havent heard of the Sex Pistols or the Clash. But the Ramones are gay!
Me: -rams head into wall repeatedly-
