The German band Kraftklub mentions them in their song "Songs für Liam". Not in a positive way though.

It's not serious though. I think they like Green Day

The german band "Kraftklub" made a song called "Zu Jung" what means too young in english.. The mention Green Day in the following part: 

Unsere Eltern sind schuld,

sie haben uns in diese Welt entlassen,
voller Angst, Hass, Lady Gagas und Massenvernichtungswaffen.
Doch vor allem ohne Rock’n’Roll, auf Green Day ist geschissen.
Meiner Meinung nach können sich alle Bands verantwortungsvoll in Interviews geben, meine Vorbilder werden sie eh nicht.


You can translate this to sth like this:

Our parents are to blame,
they have released us into the world,
full of fear, hate, Lady Gagas and weapons of mass destruction.
But most importantly, without rock'n'roll, fuck Green Day.
In my opinion, all the bands can act responsible in interviews, the won't be my idols anyway

 

So it's not really a Green Day friendly part but with exception of this song Kraftklub is a really good german band.


 

i said it before on another thread: i think the "auf green day ist geschissen" (fuck green day) isnt meant in a negative way. i feel its more like "... in a world without rock n roll, besides green day". like ok theres green day, the only really popular rock band out there at the moment. but besides them theres no real rock n roll in the charts...

hmmm.... did they ever mention if they like Green Day in an interview or something?
 
I don't know. To me it sounded like they meant it in a negative way like: "today there's no real Rock'N'Roll on the radio anymore , just GD (=they aren't Rock'N'Roll and they suck)"  :ermm:

No there's no interview, but I googled and some fans said that..I feel stupid now. 

Whatever, they said that it's a very ironic song and because of that they think it's not serious.

I only know that GD are mentioned in that Weezer song and in "I got some money on me" by Lil' Wayne :lol: Oh! and Lil' Wayne's first 2 lines of the song "Hot Revolver" are the exact same as GD's Basket Case. :P

No! Don't feel stupid! :o :hug: 
 
Well... I found out on Google that Kraftclub are friends with that Casper guy  :sherlock: Ironic or not... I interpret the lyrics in a negative way  :dry:  especially because of the Kraftclub + Casper connection now.  :mellow:

Haha oh you're sweet :)

 

Yeha, I remember them saying something like " Are you ready for Sportfreunde Stiller, (some other bands but I can't remeber) and Casper?" at Rock Am Ring. They mentioned every band which was going on stage after them except for Green Day.

The song "Danny Vapid" by "The Queers" contains the lyric:

 

"Leader of the Methadones and the Mopes, too

wears a Green Day-hat - he don't watch the news"

Nice song from a Swizz rock band : 

{I Love Lady Gaga}

I take one of the Beatles, two of the Stones
Three of the Bee Gees so let's rock n' roll
Four of Michael Jackson, five of Beyonce
Six of Lady Gaga and here we go
I also take some Black Eyed Peas on my way
Rihanna, 47 and some Lil Wayne

'Cause I, I love Lady Gaga
I, I love Beyonce
I, I love Madonna (I love you),
I, I love Shakira.

I need a little Kesha, and just a little Pink
Red Hot Chili Peppers and I start to sing
I like Bryan Adams, I love Johnny Cash 
I move along to J.Lo and I try not to crash (x2)
I also take some Miley Cyrus on my way
Rammstein, 47 and some Green Day

'Cause I, I love Lady Gaga, 
I, I love Beyonce
I, I love Madonna (I love you), 
I, I love Shakira

I love Lady Gaga, yes I really do
Did you see her yesterday on MTV news ?
Oh she was singing a beautiful song
I've just listen and sang alone

I love Lady Gaga, I love you so much
I love Beyonce, yes I do

I, I love Lady Gaga, (I love you)
I, I love Beyonce (I love you, I love you)
I, I love Madonna
I, I love Shakira, yes I do

For those who aren't my friends, there's a local band here in Oregon called The Name Band and they did a parody of "Kill the DJ" and references GD several times in the song, though it's not in a positive way. It's called "Kill the Green Gay".
