I'm going to have to start applying my social life rules with people on GDC. Just ignore people who say stupid things or it will drive you crazy. Just don't spend time around them. Rather, invest time with people who have similar interests and ideals.
So to say that 39/Smooth is BETTER than the Trilogy is like slapping each member of Green Day square in the face while pissing on their shoes. Are you like, kidding? Please be kidding. I'm sorry that the Trilogy was too "Green Day" or "rocky" for you and drifted from the poppy/emo Green Day you WANT Green Day to be. But in complete honestly, the Trilogy has a lot of kick ass material. It's just straight-forward "fuck you" "turn it up" rock and roll. No sappy songs that appeal to hormonal girls (I know that's what you're looking for). Hardly any political agenda. Green Day did that in AI in the form of a legit story, and that was badass. But the Trilogy is just in your face rock and anyone who loves Green Day and loves rock music has to appreciate what Green Day did with the Trilogy. They made THREE albums that all sounded different, had a fresh sound, and payed tribute to the artists Green Day was born from.
So PLEASE. Enough with the 21CL circle-jerk. And the misguided Trilogy hate. This music is great.
I'm very upset that after all the time and energy you've invested into me you've decided to ignore me because I say stupid things.
If comparing GD albums to each other is the equivalent of slapping Green Day in the face and pissing in their shoes, then damn. They must never have a dry pair of shoes.
And I'm sorry baby cakes, but your horrendous sexism is showing again, it's really not an attractive sight.
