Hello all i am a true green day fan back from the old east bay scene.. ive been liking them since slappy hours and even saw them as sweet children.. now im wondering are there any other true fans who are not american idiot posers? because that would make me so happy and would still have hope... because now american idiot came out people love them so much and are going back to their old albums and calling themselves real fans, only because of american idiot...


just answer this one question........


ARE THERE ANY TRUE, VINTAGE, GREEN DAY FANS HERE???

I hate those posers. I heard greenday's new songs but really kind of hated them. My uncle who's been a huge fan for a long time lemme borrow Dookie and it was OK. American Idiot sucks though. I don't really like GD much. But if their next album is the complete opposite like they say then I might consider.

well its unfair to say that because i didnt even hear of green day untill a month or so before American Idiot came out, it depends when people hear them 1st isnt it. But i loved them an i thought they had stoped or sumat. Then when i saw the album in a store i thought hang on i like these and bought it. And then i loved them even more lol.
I like all their early stuff aswell ended up buyin most ov their albums and nearly every song is great some are not so good, but i geus its just depends what you like, their live shows though are brilliant. And Tre Cool ****in rocks hes brilliant just amazin unique....i duno......

So you're saying you went to their concert before you were 5?

I was born in 1990, so I can't say I was a fan back in the day. I remember hearing Brain Stew and Good Riddance on the radio when I was younger, and that's kinda how I got into them. I own everything from 1039SOSHs to American Idiot. I really don't listen to them as much anymore though.
#12
msot of the time when i see people listenin to green days music i think of them as posers jsut cause they were popular but i do knwo that there are astill true green day fans... ive liked them til their newest album came out, then they jsut became annoying with so many posers, but i jsut like their albums before this anyways, maybe a selecct 1 or 2 on their new album
Do you, you, feel like I do?
#13
I got into Green Day way before American Idiot, and listened to the old albums since then. I also actually liked American Idiot. But why are you ripping on these people. So they found a band they like, and they want more music. They can't even call themselves a fan because they've only liked them since American Idiot? You're kind of an asshole for saying that.

Wait, under your "favorite groups" it says, "blink,billy talent, chiodos." Seems like by your criteria you must be a poser too.

Liking Blink isn't being a poser. Their not the best and yeah they can be somewhat overrated but they're good. Their not rip offs like GD they have thier own style.

I'm afraid that being a true fan has nothing to do with when you were born.

Sorry.

I think people who are worried about being seen as "true fans" are posers.
Isn't listening to the music enough?
And I seriously doubt that the band themselves have any objections to the tonnes of new fans they have.
Because light strikes a deal with each coming night.

ok whatver, but just cos you were not round at that point, why cant you go back and appreciate it. And i dont think the people who go to green day gig are posers, lets face it, if you wanted to look cool you wouldnt go to a green day gig. Posers are the ones that say they like morbid death just to look like they have a wide taste in music and are proper metal. I think the people who g to a green day gigs are true fans,because it takes guts, if anyone in my school said that they liked green day they would probably be stoned. So yh have to have respect and come on if it was only "Vintage" fans going to gigs, you would have no easy hot emo girls to take advantage of afterwards. SO be thankful. AND its not like greend day have remained faithful to there old sound. Just have to look at thier image to see that. Eyeshadows and bush baiting

Well, I don't know you, I could've told you that when I first looked at this thread. The majority of people on this site tend to post their real DOB, or at least close to it, unless they're under 12 (I think that's the age you don't "need" parents permission on this site to sign up), so its slightly strange. And the fact that the other things you've written under your profile say, "Bass SURFING chicks" and, "Student Still =) lol" would also give the impression that you are that age or younger. So unless you're lying, I actually find that quite creepy now.

And no, "but i liked them since slappy hours, so therefore im a true fan" doesn't make you a true fan, you could hate them. You could've liked them since 'Nimrod' and there's nothing to say that you're not a true GD fan, you're just trying to state that you've been listening to them from the start and therefore have been a fan for longer.

that's stupid. i like a lot of bands from the 60's and 70's. are you saying i'm not really a fan because i wasn't around then, and didn't find out about the bands until the 80's or 90's? nice logic.

I consider myself a true fan, even though the first album I got was American Idiot. After I got that, I went and bought some of thier old stuff and now it's all I listen to. I think it's kinda unfair how you think, unless someone knew of them before AI, they aren't a true fan. I mean I would have loved their older stuff if I had heard it when it first came out, I just wasn't allowed to listen to stuff like that. I mean, I will grant you, they're some AI posers that like them just because they're popular now, but not everyone that got hooked on them through AI is a poser. I love all of their stuff, just not AI, that should mean something. It's not about the timing. Just because you liked them before I did, does not make you the better fan or me a poser.

So, yes. They are still some true Green Day fans, and I'm one of them.

Well, I'm 15, so not old enough to be around for SOSH, but I was raised on Kerplunk! on, since I was 2-ish, so I've pretty much loved them forever, or as close to it as I can get. And just because someone got into Green Day through A.I. doesn't necessarily mean they're posers or anything, though unfortunately, that is the case
"Oh dear," says God, "I hadn't thought of that,", and promptly vanishes in a puff of logic.
"Well, that was easy," says Man, and for an encore goes on to prove that black is white and gets himself killed at the next zebra crossing.
