My father has said things that made me think he had a man crush on Billie Joe.

"I could kiss him!" (leaving the context out.)
"he's not sinister, he's cuddly!" (in response to my mother whole watching the Redundant video on TV)

Heard that from my own dad and given the fact that dad was 32 years older, it was probably some love for a youngster, rather than a man crush. :) Then again, I assume your dad has got to be much younger than mine was!

"How much do your parents know?" More than they want! :lol: haha
 
When I got into GD in 2004, I showed my mom the AI music video and pictures of the band and she had a tiny crush on Billie :P but then after some time she got annoyed that I ALWAYS talked about GD :lol: 
My dad doesn't care about GD but he can remember that Billie's b-day is on Feb. the 17th xD and I remember I once showed him this certain video of Billie Joe last year where he pulls down his pants after Good Riddance (the one from the Rock Am See festival in Germany) and my dad laughed so hard :lol:
My sister likes GD and she likes to go to their concerts with me but she isn't a huge fan of them :P
 
 
P.S: I once watched the Bullet In A Bible DVD with my mom....and I didn't skip any parts :ninja: if you know what I mean  :ga:

 

My mom and I didn't skip those parts even with our neighbour around, the neigbour being another widow who often thinks young men hit on her. The backstage mooning moment :ga: first prompted her to say: "Eyoooo!" and then, 30 seconds later, she was like: "Cute boy, shame for the amount of tattoos!"

 

My dad hates Green Day a lot. My Mom likes Green Day, I listen to their worst songs just to make her mad. My mom is one of those people who hates curse words. Oddly enough my mom likes Dookie over everything, and her second favorite album is Dos. She hasn't seen any of their live stuff yet besides Bullet In A Bible.

I think your dad is just being a parent, he "hates" them just because you like them. :)

 

And Dookie is my mom's favourite, too...back when we had economic sanctions imposed by the United Nations, I had only a pirate copy of the Dookie cassette for 2 years, then mom bought me the original CD in Germany...and since my great aunt urged her to buy me a portable CD player as well, mom couldn't resist on the 32-hour bus ride back to Belgrade from Berlin and she opened the CD, stuck it in the player and banged her head for the rest of the trip. Side note: she was 57 when this happened. Now she's 72 and she knows all Dookie songs straight to finish, apart from the bonus/hidden track.

 

Sorry, I come from stone age. Cassettes, portable CD players....  :confused:

My dad is almost exactly six years older than Billie Joe, so they're a similar age. Definitely a secret mam crush! I'm so proud of him. :P

My mom knows everything about them (she also knows how Billie Joe acts on stage  ;)  you know what I mean)

My father knows nothing about these things ;)  I think it's better that he will never know about it  :happy:

My parents don't really now anything about Green Day except that I like them and they are okay with that 

But my dad once saw a live preformance of pinkpop 2010 on tv and said that he would like to go to a concert of them, so I guess he kind of likes them.

My mother doesn't really know anyting about them, she thinks they are some really unkown band so she keeps asking if they really headlined pinkpop  :lol:

 

I almost never listen to Green Day music with them and I certainly wouldn't watch Bullet In A Bible with them, way to awkward  :P

In that case, yes, sounds like a mancrush. Well, as long as he doesn't get a fauxhawk and go to a show with a bunch of flowers, he's OK. :)

I was thinking today that there should be a sister thread to this saying "How much does your partner know?" as they can be the more judgmental :P

As for my dad he knows that I love Green Day and that the guy named Billie Joe exist, but he isn't familiar with their music. Not because he doesn't like it but because he just isn't into music at all.  Yeah, when I bought American Idiot back then he allowed me to listen to it in car while we were driving back to home and that happened again now recently with iDos!. I think it's the only time he's heard them.
 
My mum knows much more compared to dad. She likes their music and knows enough to even pick her favourite songs! She was fascinated after we saw them live, idk if it was really because of Green Day or due to the fact that it was her first big rock concert ever. :lol:

My parents know a decent amount about Green Day, because I started listening to them when I was 10 (Almost 19 years ago... Crazy), and they wanted to "monitor" what I was listening to. I know that they weren't thrilled about the language, but they never told me to stop listening, so I didn't. They actually know a lot more of their older stuff since that's what I was listening to when I was growing up and still living at home. American Idiot and beyond all happened once I had moved out, so they don't really know much of that. BUT last weekend my dad listened to some of the new stuff, and really liked it... He still isn't thrilled with the language though lol.

 

My mom is really into top 40 type music, so she knows a lot more about them and their popular songs.

 

My dad actually plays bass, guitar, and drums, and when I was young he would play along to whatever GD song I was listening to and I would sing along :)

 

Oh and funny enough after we were done listening to the new stuff last weekend, my dad started asking about their personal lives. Are they married, kids, how long have they been together now, etc... I guess he was trying to take an active interest lol.

my parents know a lot of the songs and they know most albums (they should know all, as i showed them all, but i don't know how much they remembered :P

my parents do know that they swear in their songs and also on stage, but they don't really care (the funny thing is when i was little i said "asshole" to my dad and he would hit me, later he said it to me :lol: ...same with showing the middle finger, he understands it as fun now and does that even pretty often xD and with Green Day he doesn't have any problem there :P )

the only thing they don't know are the sexual things, e.g. Billie mooning the crowd or masturbating on stage :P ...though i'm not sure whether they know Fuck Time :whistle and maybe they found out more than i think...

my mom even likes some of their songs and my dad never really liked them, but accepted it that i do and did everything that i could see them live (twice btw) :wub: ...and he even watched the Rock am Ring performance on tv with me and my mom and now thinks they're a pretty good live band. he told me he wouldn't go to a concert of theirs anyways, though, as he doesn't like loud music (neither from the type nor just from how loud concerts or festivals are in general)

My parents know an ok amount about Green day, my dad used to own nimrod and he told me he likes some of their songs! But he makes some of the most random things up about them..He told me Good riddance is the reason why their famous and they record songs 20+ ft underground :P

 

And my mom likes green day a lot!(no were near my level) She told me when she was still in a band she always sang 1-2 green day songs! She never told me which but Im guessing it was mostly from dookie or nimrod or something from the 90's. I actually recently went to a concert with her when they played in Philadelphia! She was a lot more active with the crowd then I thought :P

My dad's into them. He's followed the singles since Basket Case, and knows a few various album tracks, mainly from American Idiot. He's been to see them with me twice and says they're easily the best band he's ever seen (and he saw Queen and the original Guns n Roses), so his enthusiasm is good!

My mum knows the singles from American Idiot, and likes all the ballads but nothing else really interests her, other than Holiday for some reason.

My whole family knows I love Green Day. Parents, brother, sister, grandparent(s), aunty, uncle, cousins. Even my friends know how much I love them. They don't understand exactly why but they understand that I do. a lot.

I think my surroundings have no clue how I'm crazy.

I am the kind whos not really...outgoing. I mean I don't like to show my tastes. I listen to them alone, and I don't have any album, any shirt, poster... and I never talk about them, unless to my friend who's probably fed up :D

So they don't know how I LOVE that band.

And I don't really know either..

My mom and dad have accepted that I'm a little crazy haha. My mom quite likes greenday but she doesn't know many of the words so just makes them up as she goes along. My dad doesn't really listen to them and for some reason thought that WMUWSE was about billies gay teacher?!?

Insisted my Mum & Dad played Green Day Rock Band and at the end they thought it was a different band playing each song! Duh! Well, shows how diverse they are I suppose. Made my Mum watch AAF which she was quite happy to do, bless her, and thought it was "quite nice". Now I insist on taking my kids to GD gigs because I have no-one else to go with and they love me for it!! I am the coolest Mum of all their friends.  Hubby thinks I should stop acting like a 14 year old and hopes I will grow out of it.

My parents really don't know much about Green Day. I think that the only GD song they know is Boulevard of Broken Dreams 'cause it's been played on the radio. They have no idea how much I love Green Day and how much the band means to me. Father quite takes this Green Day thing as a joke which annoys me. They barely even let me go to GD gig. :(
