Don't know if this was a topic before on this site but I was wondering what you guys thought was Green Day's signature song. Most popular artists seem to have a song that most people will forever associate them with such as Blink 182's "All the Small Things" (in my opinion at least). For me, I would have to say it's either Longview or the song American Idiot, since I bet if I walked up to a random person on the street that they would most likely name one of those two songs. Any opinion is appreciated guys, thanks for any feedback. :)

Here's the funny thing; there is no one answer, it all depends on who you ask. Ask a general rock fan, they'll probably say Basket Case or Longview. Ask a pop junkie, they'll probably say BOBD or Good Riddance. Ask a hardcore fan, they'll probably give you a clusterfuck of different answers. I think that just says something about how they've hit all different segments of music in their career so far.

I think it's something from the Dookie Era like Basketcase. For a while it was BOBD, but I think it's Basketcase or When I come Around.

in terms of lyrics that everyone knows, I'd say Good Riddance. In terms of radio play, I'd say Basket Case.

The fact that we can't decide on one signature song, show that they've had a pretty impressive career so far.

 

Basket Case, Good Riddance, American Idiot and BoBD are songs that everyone knows.
