I mean it's not like they knew that by releasing American Idiot it would give them over 10 million sales. From what I've heard it was kind of a last ditch effort.

Now, I'm not saying I don't like old Green Day more than new, but I can't give the credit where it's not due.
Homophobia, Racism and Sexism are all the secondary fears. You aren't born with secondary fears.

Sorry this is my first post on this site and even though I realize most of you don't even classify Green Day as punk I though this was the right board to mention it on.

No Green Day threads in the Punk Forum

uh yes thats why they made about 3 music videos, signed to a major major label, started playing on radio, and went on MTV 24/7

ok the reason they say they sold out is because the music is very different(compare Wake Me up when september ends to Basketcase) and second.... since when is green day "political".. when they first started it was like "too young to know, too stoned to care" and now they're doin a half assed political statement.

o yeah and the make up adds to it a tad.
