Green Day
« on: September 14, 2005, 03:49:05 AM »

This band has decided to write one of the best cds of 2005! They just keep cranking out hit after hit off their American Idiot cd!!! It's nice to see a bit of fresh ideas in the music business!

I love their first 3 albums, everything else they did is to my opinion OK but not much more than that...

On their earlier work they sound like a young and enthousiastic band to me, on the more recent released they sound like a professional band that capably repeats the same old trick... They're still good at it, but the spirit is just different.

Fresh ideas? Bands like the Buzzcocks and the Descendents did pretty much the same thing 25 years ago...

Oh, and American Idiot is from 2004, so it can't be one of the best CDs of 2005. :)

I like American Idiot, however it's been too... I dunno... hyped, for me to properly enjoy it. I tend to stay away from most things that are too mainstream. Not really a great thing to do, but...

Concept cd yes the "punk part" no the concept part! If you listen to this cd there are more hard rock songs on here then "punk" AS the band stated we just want to be a popular "Rock Band" not necessarly "punk".

Well having said that I guess you can "appreciate" the fact that the "2004" Cd is still going strong in "2005" and seems to be no stopping it!!!

Is this not the " Other Bands" of interest section of the "Beatle's form"????

I think Indica's point is that the Beatles are mainstream. :)

Okay, now THAT I'm interested in. I don't think Green Day is on the top of anything. If ever they were on the top, it was in the 90's. They're making a big mistake marketing this album the way they are. All the cell phone commercial ads and crap. It's making them seem very ordinary. I'm not crazy about American Idiot. I think they were going for some great new innovative thing claiming it to be a "Punk Opera." It didn't quite have the same impact on today's pop culture as Tommy did now did it?

Wow, they did cell phone commercials? Well I didn't know that. That's not very punk.
