    Green Day is why I love ENTPs. Green Day is awesome. I love every single one of their songs.

    I prefer the older stuff butm I love the new too. I'm just weird like that. Nimrod was good. Kerplunk!'s my favorite.

    Me too, I like them.
    They kinda give a vibe of "average fun" I'm not very familiar with, I mean the "let's go to the beach and enjoy life" - kind of way.

    When I hear a Blink 182 song for the first few times, I generally like it. But by the tenth time I hear it, I want to rip my radio out of the dashboard. I don't know if that means I like them or not :confused:

    I thought Dookie and Insomniac were good albums, but I don't know if I've ever heard a band make a mid-career leap in quality and creativity like the one Green Day did when they put out American Idiot. It was off the charts, and completely unexpected. I've been sitting here thinking about it for five minutes, and the only other example I can come up with is Faith No More with Angel Dust. And even that's not close.

    +1. It especially happens in hard rock or punk, where bands are expected to make the same album over and over again or else they "sold out". Metallica is a particularly unfortunate example.

    i like them, they came out big on "TRL" in 99/2000 when i was just starting high school. i still like them, mostly for nostalgic reasons tho.. im sure i'll bring out this music for my kids someday.

    Amen. Why is it such a cardinal sin to like anything post-Master of Puppets? (BUT CLIFF BURTON OMFG DURRRR!!!!!!!!111111)

    Pretentious metalheads are the absolute worst kind of fuckups.
    If you could be anything you want, I bet you'd be disappointed--am I right?

    Bands can grow and evolve, yes, but Green Day just straight up went garbage.

    Definitely, they're like a straight up summer jam. To me Travis Barker puts the band on a whole new level though. He's made the band more respectable to me, because he's a talented drum fiend with some impressive chops.

    Have you heard "Adam's Song"? It's depressing but good and not as "juvenile" as the others. "What's My Age Again?" a good song too.
    I made this thread when I started listening to them, and since then, I've worn their albums out completely . Their singles (the ones that get played on the radio/MTV) are good, but my favorite tracks are not singles. "Enema of the State" is my favorite album of theirs and I think "Dumpweed", "Going Away To College" and "Wendy Clear" are my favorite tracks from the album.
