I dunno, I'll admit I liked 1 or 2 of his earlier songs but never enough to actually purchase an album http://www.greendaycommunity.org/public/...
I don't really care for album sales anyway. Concert ticket sales are more important. I just hope if they come here they get a full venue.
He's talented for sure and I like some of his songs but I hate what he did to hip hop (hate the whole noughties rap trend in general - basically hip hop with no soul) and he just depresses me nowadays tbh.
I more just don't understand why Irish people seem to love him so much. Wouldn't think his words would connect with people here as much as they seem to. Anyways why am I talking about Eminem?
I think it's cool when Green Day does well on the charts - It's my only time really observing them in a positive way and I enjoy their exposure. I also want them to do well so they can continue to have the freedom they have with the label. Also, because they deserve it. But that's about it, I don't really care otherwise. Ugh, yes. Everyone knows how I feel about wanting them to have their own show!!
In the UK it's number 2 behind Mumford & Sons. Sigh.
That's only the midweek chart, though. It might overtake/be overtaken.
Ah, not bad! Idk where this random Mumford and Sons hype came out of when they were just a normal band like...last week. :|
