GREENDAY?? AHHHHH !!!!!
Greenday I remember was that crazy punk band that used to cause a small riot when ever it played and all the people in the crowd were either drunk or on their way.
The present Greenday is some sick and twisted distortion of the Greenday it was to be, a sad emotional and sissy greenday that make me go........

Fall Out Boy and New Green Day are pop music, end of story.
I would be surprised if somebody could prove to me that they arn't sell-outs.
If you didn't know 'pop' actually stands for 'popular'. It's got nothing to do with the sound of the music.
the thing is, all green day were doing with american idiot is to try and make something different.
metallica have sold way more albums than green day, but they're still writing the same sort of music...are they sell outs?

Yet, it has everything to do with what they sound like. To the average radio listener it means "popular".
But to people who know more about music than how to change the radio station it is another word for sell out.
They did do something different. They changed their image into a band that makes people such as myself split them into "old green day" and "new green day".
Thanks for making a great point. Metallica are still writing the same sort of music... to a certain extent. But that's for a whole different topic.
What came to my mind was the point that I made earlier about them changing their image. They took something "underground" and made it mainstream.
If you compare "Old Green Day" to "New Green Day" you will realize that they are in fact changing their music for a quick buck.
Of course, like you stated, that's the main concept of music artists. To make money, but if they have to change their whole music philosophy i.e. selling out, then so be it.

Grren Day is great! Compared to most other bands. They don't just cuss to cuss, or degrade women, or killing gays for fun, or go on and on about their old dog that use to drink with them while they killed gays and blacks, or sex with family, so better then Rap, or COuntry.
They play instruments, they sing, they are obviously better the Spears or uh, Backstreet Boys or whoever like that.
But compared to greats of greats like Zepplin, Metallica, or The Boss Bruce Springsteen, they are mediocre.
