I think this is great... Anything to keep them out there and get them literally everywhere. It's good marketing!

This will help them out a HUGE amount. People love angry birds all around the world, and about 75% of the sales will be from people who love angry birds and dont care about Green Day. These people will check Green Day out , meaning Green Day sales will go up a ton more.

I don't even know what the Angry Birds thing is...

Is this a game I can't get if I don't have an iphone or something like that?

People also realize that stuff like this is mostly from the major label marketing teams right?
Green Day never said "Hmmm, it would be cool to have us in an Angry Birds game!"
All the promotion = Labels.
Green Day are under a contract, so they probably don't have too much of a say in it.
Plus, who cares? Green Day Rockband had shitty sales, this probably will too.


Bitter much? Who cares really. you don't know they didn't come up with the idea.....

Since everyone who dislikes something that GD does is a "hater", here is some quiet indifference for you instead. :mellow:

^^^^THIS!!

Do people not realize this? The marketing for 21st CB was total horseshit and led to shitty album sales by Green Day's standards...which is a shame because that album was fucking awesome. I have friends that are Green Day fams that still didn't know there was going to be a trilogy until I recently told them. Warner and Green Day (AND WE AS FANS) need to be doing everything possible to raise awareness of the total epic-ness that is about to take place over the next 5 months!!!

I really doubt this is going to do much aside from please fans of both Angry Birds and Green Day. If people check out GD from this game, chances are they're just going to download and not buy anything anyway.

The number of times Green Day has disappointed me lately is frightening. I'm not used to being unhappy when it comes to them, man ... Fuck.

Why are people getting upset over this? Really guys? :lol:

Does it make you feel less cool~* to like a band with some mainstream appeal?

Uh no...I'm not bitter. I'm the "guy who constantly criticizes to criticize" remember? What I said was true.
Major Labels have control of a band's marketing, and how they're marketed.
It doesn't mean Green Day came up with the idea themselves.
And Green Day Rockband did in fact sell really really horribly.

I just directed one of my friends that isn't a big Green Day fan to GDA so he could see this and the first thing he said was, "holy shit...that's REALLY fucking smart." He is in the tech/cell phone industry and he said that this was genius marketing and was really cool since it's the first Angry Birds game that actually has an outside theme.

But, but! Green Day is suppose to be "punk"! :P
Even though, they aren't really punk...and haven't really been, since like forever.
Punk's all about a DIY (Do It Yourself) ethic, it has nothing to do with "Be yourself and don't give a fuck!".

This is what the mainstream believe punk really is.

I've always been against calling bands sellouts, because most people wanna be able to live by doing what they love, but this is just absurd.
I'm so gonna buy this.

Punk is not giving a fuck about what people think. Mission accomplished.

They do have to sell three albums in a short space of time.
