Since I'm now a member of this community forum, I decided to listen to Green Day (the band).  I think maybe I've heard a couple of their songs before, but I decided to really dedicate some time and listen to a whole album of theirs.  I have to say, they're pretty decent.  A lot of their lyrics are very catchy and easy to sign along with.  I had a lot of fun singing along (even if I didn't know all of the lyrics yet)!  Sometimes they can get a little flat on a few notes, but overall they're a talented group of guys who have tons of potential.  I really think if they dedicate themselves and practice they can become international superstars (dream big)!
 
I think my favorite song by them was 'American Idiot' because it had a lot of political undertones that I agree with and it seems like not many bands express that sentiment the way they do.  Also, it's just a catchy song in general (it made me want to start dancing).  I'm sure a majority of you have heard the song since this forum is called Green Day Community, but if you haven't you should definitely check it out.  I looked it up and it was on youtube.  PM me if you'd like the link and I can give it to you.
 
Summary: Overall a pretty talented group of guys with several high-quality catchy songs and even more room to grow!  I give them a solid 3.5 stars out of 5.  I'll probably check out more of their songs if I get some free time.  I'm glad this forum introduced me to Green Day (the band).

Sorry, I think I put it in the right forum since the board is called 'Green Day Chat', I assume it would include putting reviews of Green Day.  A mod can move it to a more appropriate board.  I didn't find one specifically for reviewing

This was a very insightful and helpful review. I was recently thinking about listening to Green Day and your review has helped guide my decision. Thank you, KWD.

Yes. Why does that surprise you? If you listen to the songs all at once it's not too bad (time wise).

It's a good band and lovely guys, but I don't think I'll buy them. The price is too too big compared to the package of guys you're getting, and to be honest they all look kind of tired.

Perhaps if they were 20 years younger.

He's not trolling. In case you didn't see his twitter, he can't even name a single member of the band

Yes. Why does that surprise you? If you listen to the songs all at once it's not too bad (time wise).

What album/songs did you listen to btw? Just American Idiot? They have a lot of really good songs from other records. What other artists are you into?

Green Day is a band? I thought we were just talking about weed and stuff? The only reason why I became a member here. I´m confused now...

So you joined this Forum for fun?

Essentially.  My friend is an active member here, so I decided to join.  I wasn't familiar with the main subject matter of the forum (Green Day) until just recently.

 

I like Green Day (the band) too! Can we be friends? :)

Yes. Somebody added me as a friend already, but I'm not sure where you initiate the request, so you'll have to send it and I'll accept.

I appreciate the advice, and I plan on checking out more of their songs/albums, but please stop stalking me online.
