Oh, this one made me mad: the reviewer for PopCrush said "Oh Love" was a shorter and slightly more accessible version of "Jesus of Suburbia". HOW THE EVERLOVING FUCK IS THAT THE CASE?! Did the reviewer even listen to either song?!

My friend sent me  a message on Facebook saying how green day should burn in hell and so should I.  Then proceeded to send me links to a very one-sided hypocritical megachristian articles on how it  brainwashed people...

 

Does that count?

Not exactly something I read, but on the way home from Riot Fest my friend and I were having an arguement about Green Day. He only listens to 39/Smooth and Kerplunk and says that he doesnt like American Idiot because it doesnt have any "emotion". I told him he obviously must not have heard the same album that I did.

 

I also went on to tell him that even if he doesn't like the album, he can't deny the fact that it is one of the most emotional, heartfelt peices of music ever created.

And where did I say that he was "stupid"? Saying American Idiot doesn't have any emotion is like saying Dookie didn't sell 20 million copies.

What is the name of this thread.

 

It's called an opinion. Your friend is allowed to have one - get this - even if it contradicts your own! Shocker!

Surely whether there's emotion on a record or not isn't a matter of opinion, though? It's just a fact. The opinion is whether the person in question likes it or not, and I don't see their right to that opinion being questioned.

It's up for debate, surely, but there's no question that your perception of the emotion contained in any work of art is entirely subjective. Johnny Cash's cover of Hurt, for example, I find extremely boring and soulless. For some reason other people consider it better and more powerful than the original - even Trent Reznor has stated he feels this way and stated that it's "no longer his song".

Well yeah, fair point. I'm not a fan of either version of Hurt, but as much as I love Johnny Cash I find his version really dull too. I guess with American Idiot you kind of have to have heard the whole album to realise what it's all about, there's not much 'emotion' in the title track for example. Casual 'fans' or people who can't be arsed to listen to it all won't have a chance of appreciating it in that respect.

Well i saw that GDA post a picture of Lady Gaga, i think it was Matt? :P Anyway, i saw this in the comments:

 

This a reply to someone that said that Gaga and Billie were friends:

 

 

 

Not anymore. He admitted in an interview that she was the one that got him hooked on pills and continued to give them to him. Since he went to rehab he has been banned by his wife from having any contact with Lady Gaga.

I don't remember any of that  :huh:

I remember an internet article that said that BJ's was deaf of the right ear because it has been stabbed... because of a conflict related with drugs.
I laughed my ass off, really.

The article in local newspaper after Green Day's gig in Helsinki last June. The guy who wrote the article  said that the show was just parody and he almost lost his mind there. How can anyone say something like that?! :mad: The gig was far from parody, I'm telling you.

Not sure if she though Billie Joe Armstrong was the only member or if there was a legitimate person that went by Green Day but people are just fantastic sometimes.

The amount that people hate musicians is massively disproportionate to the amount of hate those musicians deserve is what I mean I guess. And I often find it hilarious :lol:

If you are going to try and defend a band against haters don't sound like an immature moron. Honestly at least try to make yourself out to be a semi-intelligent human being.
