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 ..."

The best punk rock band (of the moment)

Advantagesa very good good punk rock

Disadvantagesno disadvantages

"...I try to talk abot Green Day, my favourite punk rock band of the moment. I bought the last Green Day's album, which is called "American idiot". It's a great album, full of a lot of very good songs. For an example, I like so much "Boulevard of broken dreams", "Wake me up when September ends" and "Holiday". Also the song that named the cd is very interesting. Anyway I remember their first song (to me): "Basket case", taking from the album "Dookie". I ..." Read review

greenday

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

Another one bites the dust

AdvantagesCatchy, funny, bouncy

Disadvantagesgetting worse with age

"When I first heard Greenday, some years ago I loved them. I couldnt buy thier albumn fast enough or play them enough times. They had the funniest, catchiest lyrics of the time, within their genre and you just couldnt help singing Greenday songs on the schoolbus at the back with all the other 'weirdos'. Unfortunately since punk became popular, Greenday seem to have focused more on pleasing the masses to make themselves rich than their music as it has ..." Read review
