I just saw a green day concert and I really hadda wonder why all the hate? They aren't the most amazing musicians but their music is good. Their guitarist doesn't walk around like he's the next Hendrix. Also people hate then because their music changed, but do you expect middle aged men to still write the same music they did when they were in their 20s. I'm not trying to say everyone should like them,
I'm just saying whenever I see anything involving Green Day, 99% of people just wrote "Green Day sucks" without backing it up and I'm just wwondering why. Their show was a load of fun btw.

i find the singer's(billy joe armstrong?) voice annoying, and being a guitar player i hate that most of the songs are 3 chords, and i find the lyrics stupid.

just my opinions.

Dude at least you give a reason most people just hate because it's the "popular" thing to do. If you don't like it I understand you don't like it, but when people hate on something because everyone else does I think it really makes them look like idiots

How does having a broadway show have anything to do with not being punk? That's just idiotic.
