After that, Kerplunk!, then 39/Smooth, it sounds a lot closer to what they sound like live, and for some reason that most likely has to do with my being derranged, I like live bands. Then Dookie, Nimrod, Shenanigans, AI, Warning.

And back on topic... I think 39/Smooth was amazing, the solos are pretty decent for a 16 year old, they sound together. The bass lacks quite a bit though, and Sobrante doesn't really vary to much from a basic beat, or have Tre's crazy obsession with cymbals, which I think leads to his virtually killing the record .

Dude, I personally believe all of their albums totally rock. I'm sure their next album is gonna rock and become a big hit. Did ya'll hear on them opening the Superdome with U2? They were awesome, Billie was looking a little emo, but, hey, the song was kick-ass.

I would have to say my favorite album would have to be Nimrod, 'cause of Time of Your Life and King For A Day, I would guess. I hope they have King For A Day kinda songs on the new album, you know, fun, silly, weirdass songs that are freakin' hilarious. Another Grouch-ish song would be cool too. Oh well, even if they don't do that, it'll still be awesome.

Oh yeah, I haven't heard Slappy because I figured it wouldn't be any good without Tre, but I guess I was wrong. From the sound of you guys, I should probably try it out.

wasn't punk going against what the papers said, and doing what their friends said was cool?the papers took advantage of this and used reverse-phsychology to get them to spit on punk musicians...

Because they are like them, at least now. They may be a bit more punk i supposed, but just because Black Flag is heavier then the Sex Pistols doesn't mean they aren't both punk.

I used to love Green Day, but not anymore. I don't think they deserve the mass amounts of flamage they get though. Anyone who listens to the older stuff (pre-Dookie) knows Billie Joe doesn't suck at guitar so much as he chooses to play simple power chords.

Is that why he removed his pickup selector so it dosnt get in the way of strumming. Dont get me wrong, *Ehem* Their a little below decent, but their *ehem again* ok, but they dont deserve the whole, *Everyone plays their songs from united supermarkets to tampons comercials* thing.

I must admit, I do like "Take This To Your Grave." Can't stand the newer stuff though. And screamokid, stop being a dick. Green Day has good songs and people like them. I belive we've already established the fact that Billie Joe had some cool solos on 1039SOSHs and Kerplunk, as well as the fact that Green Day are POP-punk, hence they are in the POP-PUNK/emo forum, not the PUNK and ska forum. True, now they're more pop-rock, yes, they are extremely commercial, but w/e. I like them more than most stuff on the radio.

EDIT: and nerk13, no offense, but you're gonna get flamed like crazy if you post in the pit.

EDIT 2:

Doesn't he play a Les Paul Jr. which only has one pickup now? I never really use my neck pickup either, so I'm kind of missing you're point...

Thanks for the warning, and yeah, I've already posted in there; you are right, I was indeed flamed like crazy.

A: bonus points for saying you were around back then and actually being around back then, and B: i'm attempting to discuss the old stuff, as was half the people who posted here. The select majority of people who weren't, I for one ignore

I agree with BassSurfer I seriously hope their new album will sound more like their old stuff, though from the look of it, it may turn out emo, which sucks. I've always wondered though, and ya'll please answer this, who is the better drummer, Tre or John? I've heard some people say John is really, really bad, but I want to hear what ya'll think. Especially you, mr. frenchy fungus, you seem to know what you're talking about.

They are Pop-Rock now...not Pop-Punk.

I dont want to get into why, just search for the Only Green Day thread (which should be bumped to get rid of the 3-4 Green Day threads that have surfaced as of yesterday) and post in there.
