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).

I love their old stuff but if anyone plays Time of Your Life as their graduation song again, they should be shot.

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.

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.

I saw them play in a dive bar in El Sobrante, CA in 1988. They were just street kids then.
