If Green Day fell off the face of the earth, would anyone care?
I would. American Idiot was one of the best, if not the best album of 2004.
Is your dislike because they're anti-Bush, or just a general dislike of them/their style?
I think Smarter's "why" comment was the same thought that I had, why ban them? How were the neighbors "traumatized" by a Grateful Dead concert? Doesn't seem like having a bunch of hippies in your town for a few hours would be enough to cause that kind of damage.
It's kind of bizzare that they wanted to ban Green Day 3 years ago, though. For what? The most controversial thing they'd written at that point was "Longview".
BTW, Smarter, Brak rules!
I just don't care for their style. There's so many anti-Bush musicians out there that if we got rid of them all, we'd be listening to Toby Keith and Kid Rock all day long!
Actually, to be a bit more precise, I'm mad at myself for liking them so much because their music is so ridiculously simple, but so catchy! It's a love-hate relationship!
Fair enough. I sort of wish there'd be a band that just said "who cares?" I'd buy all their albums in a heartbeat.
Ah, now the truth comes out!
I used to be like that, but now I realize that three chords can do a lot. You should seriously listen to their new album, imagine a punk-rock opera with two songs that are almost 10 minutes long. That actually works.
Hey, screw you, pal! :funnyface
Actually my 8 soon to be 9 year old, would be devasted! Seems he has grown quite fond of Green Day! So fond in fact he is insisting that I must win him tickets to the sold out show in Columbus, His reasoning............ you won tickets to go see RAW mom, come on I know you can do it!
