Why is there so much hate for Green Day?

Recommended Posts

It seems that although Green Day has one of the largest fan bases, there are a ton of people that hate Green Day. Nobody hates The Who or The Rollingstones. I don't understand why people are pissy about Green Day. Even the people that just like rock, and don't care about punk or selling out, I just don't get it. Is it eyeliner?

I know a few people that dont like the who, hell, at times im not a big fan of the beatles! but that isnt the point. i think to those in the 16-25 age range in the 90s felt close to green day on a somewhat personal level, because they're old stuff is actually really relatable, though not as meaningful as say wake me up when september ends. maybe people didn't want their little punks to be megastars. i love green day no matter what circumstance. i guess if i would've been a young adult in the 90s i could have a better reason but thats what i think.

Those same idiots would never rag on The Sex Pistols or The Ramones and they "sold out" too.

Right now, it's popular and cool to hate on bands/artists just for the sake of hating them. People would much rather bash a band/artist they know little about than to express their love for a band that has touched them a personal level. (;

Anyway, Green Day is one of the few established bands from the 80s and 90s left. Which I believe the meaning behind Rusty James is about. Green Day and their peers alike are outcasts in an industry of pop and electronics.

The only thing you can do is keep on going to Green Day tours and telling these hipster pop listeners to F.O.D.

Whenever I ask someone why they don't like Green Day, the usual answer I receive is "because they're gay". I want a serious answer

Sold out as in "sold out" meaning not actually sold out, just signed to a major label. According to the real "punk rock" community selling out means signing to a label and getting wider recognition. That's why they're stupid.

yeah thats what i meant, selling out pretty much is letting the label or whoever take control of your shit, the pistols and ramones, as far as i know, never let that happen

The Stones are and always were sellouts. Such a bullshit excuse to hate on a band.

My brother hates on them for the stupidest reasons... He says they're "emo faggots" but I tell him it's not the appearance, it's how they sound, and really they sound great.

Exactly that - because they're famous

There will always be people who don't get it - that's fine, let them have their opinion

But if you feel it isn't a sound opinion (i.e. hate based on their appearance rather than their sound), then challenge it, don't let ignorance prevail over knowledge

It's just so people can feel better about themselves. Basic insecurity.

They want other people to think they're are as cool as possible so they choose to hate things that are considered popular and mainstream.
