While they have been formulaic with their last two albums, I honestly can't complain. It's a helluva formula they're using.

Indeed, why don't you go take this info to people who care? (AKA the greenday topic)

Obvious troll is hella obvious.

Here, I've got some other formulas:

House, Trance, and Techno - 4 on the floor bass drums, 808s and 909s galore, an entire genre "Acid" -of which there are house, trance, and techno subgenres - was named after one bassline synthesizer, the TB-303

Metal (core, and its subjenres) - Double-kick drumming, pig squeals drop (x) power chords, breakdowns, sweep picking, tapping, tremolo picking, and solos

Blues - Twelve bar patterns of I-IV-I-I IV-IV-I-I V-IV-I-V - Pentatonic scale solos

Bossa - I swear, every bossa nova song has the exact same kickass drumbeat

Breakbeats/Jungle - Quite a lot of chopped-up breaks from The Winstons - Amen Brother, and James Brown - Funky Drummer - the stuff that has been done with these 6 second audio samples blows my mind, look up "breakcore" for some of the more extreme manipulations by people like Venetian Snares

Classical music - Based on strict rules such as cadences and such that would make music sound "good"

Marches - Two-step rhythms with contrasting shots on the on- and off-beats

Concert music - Multiple movements, usually a fanfare-like opener, a slower, ballad-like middle movement, and a faster last movement

Etcetera, etcetera.

Do you know why these formulas are inherent in different types of music?

Because the formulas are tried and true.
