Fan. Big fan. HUGE FAN.
The band or the recycling themed holiday?
Fan of the "Dookie" Albun and some of their second Album, but anything beyond that, not so much. Not really a fan of their political views either (which tends to be true for most entertainers).
Their OK. Not a huge fan though.
How many voted Fan cause you thought it was referring to pot?
I was, until they called me an idiot
The guy sings like he has a close pin on his nose and a megaphone to his mouth and they are liberal scum...I don't like them.
In sixth grade we played brain stew in concert band I played clarinet in the band and we yelled, "hey!" throughout the song
I love American Idiot.
That's pretty much the reason voted fan.
I love their old stuff but if anyone plays Time of Your Life as their graduation song again, they should be shot.
They've been my favorite band ever since I can remember
A synonym for St. Patrick's Day? Yeah, sure. A band? I think I heard them doing a cover of a John Lennon song. It sucked. John was so much better.
When my first experience of a band is a bad cover, for example Pearl Jam's cover of "Last Kiss," I usually have little regard for the band from the start.
Both Last Kiss and Working Class Hero were covered about 10-15 years after those bands got started. Are we a late bloomer?
Huh? "Last Kiss" was covered by Pearl Jam 35 years after it first charted successfully. "Working Class Hero" was released in 1971 by John Lennon, 35 years before Green Day's cover. 10-15 years? What's your point?
I meant the bands that covered those songs were 10-15 years old when they did those songs. If Last Kiss was your first Pearl Jam song, I would agree that it's not a great place to start!
Okay, I get it. I never really got into "alternative" so the bands I mentioned never struck a chord with me until they covered songs I remembered hearing before.
To tell the truth, until today, I had no idea "Working Class Hero" had already been covered 18 times before Green Day, then twice more after Green Day.
He's easy to cover. His style is simple, but melodic so it leave a lot of creative wiggle room, which is a good enough reason not to like Green Day's version! They just copied and pasted. Total phone in.
If you're into covers, my favorite Lennon cover is Widespread Panic covering Crippled Inside. I still love the original, but WP takes it for a ride.
Just listened to it on YT, it is a good cover. Tx.
Was a fan til I found out they were libtards.
And yet you're using a device invented by "libtards."
Oh yeah! The band... No, not a fan.
Pretend punk sellout band
Is that a Dr Seuss book
"I'm all by myself…when no one's looking…I'm all by myself…" 😂
It's so funny being older now and understanding what that's about.
Wake me up when September ends is just beautiful and Jesus of suburbia is just great on so many levels. Not many bands can pull of a nine minute rock opera
I agree. Both great songs. Their American Idiot play is great too.
I'd love to see them perform but haven't found anything local since the Lead is in & out of rehab.
Yes! One of my favorites. Nimrod is their best album, in my opinion.
When they became political I stopped.
I dont really think they became political, they more of made people aware of politics in my opinion.
Never have liked them.
I do wonder how many people voted based on their political beliefs instead of their music
Anyone who takes the political opinions of musicians seriously should have their head examined.
Talk about out of touch with the real world...
Middle school me loved them. Grown me, not so much. Although their older stuff is still pretty good.
My favorite. And the only concert I've ever been to... Twice!
Green! The color my wallet is missing... Oh yeah, green day used to be one of my favorites!
Meh. They haven't released any good music since the early to mid 90s, and even that wasn't that great.
No there bad.
I assumed that this meant St. Paddies day... I'm beginning to wonder if I was wrong.
It's about the band
I assumed that as well.
That band was okay punk rock back in the early 2000's
Green Day a punk band!?!? Thanks, I needed a laugh.
More like beer day
Their new cd is pretty rad
Not a big fan, but I like them. But I prefer nu-metal over any other rock genre. Metal is my least favorite. 😎
Nu-metal is amazing. Hands down
Big fan. I think I have all of their studio albums going back to Dookie, which is still their best, in my opinion. For a long time "She" was in my top three favorite songs of all time. It's still top ten.
She & Welcome to Paradise - two thumbs up.
Have Uno dos tre? And demolicious? I doubt it.
I do have the Uno Dos Tre set. I don't have and haven't heard Demolicious.
I like Green Day.
Blowing on the wind.
I have basically all of their albums except the most recent one or two. If you don't know 90's green day, you don't know green day.
I do like them. I hate to be this guy, but I'm not a huge fan of their new stuff. I really liked American Idiot and before.
And to think American Idiot is practically "old" Green Day now.
I still like them mostly in a nostalgic way. Was obsessed in middle school though lol. I prefer their older sound.
I saw them play in a dive bar in El Sobrante, CA in 1988. They were just street kids then.
I don't know what's more depressing: young Green Day or a dive in El Sobrante...
But I do it cuz it delights daughter & granddaughter. Today, however, it's green jammies. All day. We move back to the Oregon Coast tomorrow, after the storm & I'm taking a veggie-day to rest & knit. Yay me!
A LOT of good tunes. Too bad so much of their lyrics are just simpleminded cliched liberal baloney.
I rather listen to nails running across a chalkboard.
Oh, I love that song! I think the band "That One Evil Teacher" did a really good cover of it ;)
I was a fan of their early stuff. Their recent stuff...not so much.
Feelly Good day for Gore clones. 😎
Pretty sure the question is about the rock band Green Day. Way to make it an opportunity to be a jack ass.
Never heard of them. ☺️
Today is the only Green Day I like
Jk they're not too bad
I liked them, until the radio stations play them into the ground.

I feel old. Listen to dookie
Meh, they've got a few good songs, but a lot of them are also very annoying.
Best punk band ever!!
They are not a punk band. Punk bands don't wear makeup.
