Greenday - Post Sex Pistols Punk

AdvantagesThe way punk of this generation should be

DisadvantagesPerhaps not for everyone

"Without a doubt Green Day are what punk today is all about. Constantly fresh, ever questioning the very building-blocks of society. Sat proudly next to Pearl Jam they have been one of the most influential American alternative bands. Whilst their music has not been the most inventive, focusing predominantly on power-chord driven riffs with simple bass lines following and emphasising the flow of the song, it is lyrically and through their fusion ..."

Advantagespunk rock

Disadvantagesdepends on music taste

"Greenday are a punk band with a range of albums. They are similar to bands such as new found glory and blink 182. If you are looking to buy an album that really shows off greendays talents then get their 'best of' album: International superhits. Unlike blink and NFG the lead singer has a less poppy voice, and their songs are very catchy and have great basslines, chords, and catchy lyrics. Very good band and very much worth going to see them live or ..." Read review
