Really? I was so dissapointed when it came out... It has my favorite Green Day song (Armatage Shanks), but apart from that I don't think it's really good...

I heard Billie Joe says he wants to cover the album Wish You Were Here! Wish You were freaking Here!

Quote from: Bruno
who cares if they're punk or not. It's about the music

I think it's the same thing as with art... If you think what you're making is art, then it's art. If you think what you're making is punk, then it's punk.

If it's also good art or good punk is always a whole different issue of course.

I don't think they're just SLF rip offs. I think they were just as much influenced by the Ramones, the Buzzcocks and the earlier Lookout bands.

I don't know if they're geniis (nice word...). I used to think not because their music is so simple, but after years of writing songs myself I found out that writing a dozen good three chord songs is probably much harder than writing a dozen good songs without any limitations...

Why can't people just accept that there actually are some rock stars that are greatful that they've got a platform to express their opinions, and want to use it for what they consider important issues?

And still I'd rather hear half-harted political songs than that dumb rock jock nonsense that people like Fred Durst of Kid Rock write...

Say what you want the guys know how to write "hit" songs! They have staged prehaps the biggest comeback in the History of Rock! Sold out concerts along with millions in record sales! They deserve every penny of it!

I just like American Idiot cuz it's really catchy. I like that guitar riff. A lot of their songs are catchy.

The thing that really stands out about this cd is how a band who didn't bring out a cd for 5 years could write something as good from a rock/song standpoint. The band also cleverly ran the videos in succession to tell a biger story about the cd. Green Day were pretty well written off in the world of rock and they returned with a multimillion selling cd and sold out tour !

"No" just a casual observation of clever marketing.

Maybe during the first couple of albums they were inclined to resurrect Punk, but they were never Grunge. Now that they're selling millions and winning Grammies and s**t, I would consider them more pop.

And for the record, Green Day I don't think they suck, I actually enjoy some of their recent songs but favor the early ones.
