Did Green Day Change The World?

43 posts in this topic

Posted (edited) · Report post

Hey everyone. So in english class this term, we have to choose someone who has changed the world, and talk about him/her. Someone like Nelson Mandela or Gandhi or whatever. But i want to choose Billie, or Green Day in whole, and i want to know your opinions about this subject.

Do you think Green Day contributed in changing the world? If so, how? and why?

Less personal, more informative please.

So yea, and i hope you guys like this topic. If not, mods can do whatever they want.

Like Nelson Mandela, no of course not. I feel like that is the kind of essay you can do more personally, how Green Day has changed the world for you. They rewrote punk and really put punk on the mainstream, don't forget broadway.

A few people think that they said what everyone was thinking in the early 2000s

They haven't even changed music, let alone the world.

I find this point arguable.

They changed the world as much as Pippi Langstrumpf, my dog Lord Nelson or the man in the moon in my opinion. I wouldn´t even dare to name them along with great names such as Gandhi or Nelson Mandela...

They do change people's personal worlds though.

I didn´t deny that. This is likely and possible. And more than enough for a rock band. But I see a totally different quality in Mandela, Gandhi or Mother Teresa. There´s more about them then just music... they influenced people and, yes, the world, by living grace, humility, reconsiliation and wisdom. GD is much too much ego, though fun... ;)

Green Day changed my life, undoubtedly. It's thanks to them that I really got into music in the first place, and they inspired me to pick up guitar and bass for the first time, which has had a pretty massive impact on my life. That said, another band would have probably come along and done the same thing if they hadn't. American Idiot was arguably the biggest album of my generation, at least in this country, (and I don't say that lightly or with any bias), and obviously it helped encourage other musicians to speak out against the government after 9/11. I'd argue the album may have got a lot of people more into political issues and older punk bands, which may have some kind of effect somewhere down the line, but change the world? No.

Green Day changed the community of the world. In the sense of creating floods of douches who are all about 'green day sold out! they're not true punks!'.

They've had a positive impact. Not by doing anything huge, but by affecting so many people in so many different, personal ways. There's loads of people who'll tell you the band saved their lives and some of them do mean it, it's just a shame that phrase is overused now so it's seen as fake or whatever. Even if you don't agree with that concept, they've still got a lot of people through, inspired them, helped them change for the better and brought them together in a pretty unique way - most fan communities aren't even close to theirs. Some would argue that lots of musicians have done those things, but I think Green Day more so than a lot of others.

They haven't changed the world, but you could say that they've influenced modern punk and alternative music. They were one of the first punk bands to break into the mainstream, and they're not ashamed of it. And even after signing with Reprise, they still continue to make music that is true to them.

You definitely changed some lives when you came here, but I'm not sure if that was for the positive. :P
