I was really bored and I'm an Insomniac , so I had nothing to do but make a new topic I know it's not amazing but I was just trying to make a topic that wasn't similar to any of the topics already here.
every topic I've made so far has been merged so let's see how this works out. :)

Not much of one to be honest if I happen to enjoy the particular Green Day song that is being played I'll just enjoy the song. But to be honest 9/10 if Green Day is being aired its Good Riddance or 21 Guns or something of the like that is overplayed. (Not implying that they are terrible songs, just that personally certain songs that are overplayed lose their appeal to me.)

I usually don't listen to radio and when I do they very rarely play Green Day.

Rarely listen to radio. When I do have it on, it's usually Good Riddance or BOBD. Heard American Idiot on a few weeks ago, which I'd never heard on the radio before.

I only listen to the radio in the car - if GD come on the radio & I have reached my destination I wait until the song has finished.

If I hear them on the radio it means I'm in the car and everyone has to stop talking while I turn it up loud and squeal and sing along and dance and make the car jiggle around dangerously until it is over. This annoys my husband immensely.

Either last November, or last December, the power was out, so we were listening to the radio, and I heard BOBD twice. I like the song, but it wasn't too exciting.

 

Last February, however, I heard "Welcome to Paradise" on Super Bowl Sunday, and so I was pretty ecstatic. (Maybe I was just in a super ecstatic mood because it was kitty half-time). :lol: 

 

Then some other random day in March, I heard Longview on the radio, and I was like... "Ooh, turn it up!" :woot: 

 

Lastly, on the way home from the beach at the end of May, I was listening to my MP3 player, and I was oblivious as to what was on the car radio, but I was listening to "When I Come Around".

When it ended, in that little bit of silence, I heard on the car radio that "When I Come Around" was just ending. :blink: My mom was like, "Oh, I thought you heard, I turned it up for you." 

How ironic, huh? I still can't get over that.

When it's an older song I go "Cool!" and turn it up. If it's a trilogy song, I change the radio station.

I've heard a ridiculous amount of Green Day songs on the radio, even some deeper cuts. I've heard Longview, Basket Case, She, When I Come Around, Brain Stew, Good Riddance, Warning, American Idiot, Holiday, Boulevard of Broken Dreams, Wake Me Up When September Ends, Whatsername, Mother Mary, 21st Century Breakdown, Know Your Enemy, 21 Guns, Good Riddance (Live in Awesome as Fuck), Let Yourself Go, Oh Love, and The Forgotten.

Usually it's just Good Riddance so I don't really have much of a reaction, but one time Absolute Radio played Brain Stew and Fell For You back to back, so I freaked at that.

there is a certain magic to listening to the radio and hearing songs you grew up on and/or love, it's just an amazing feeling even if it isn't Green Day.

I heard those on X103 an Indianapolis station. You can listen online or with Sirius XM, they play Green Day at least once a day.

I really don't listen to Green Day's albums much lately, so when I hear them on the radio I appreciate them so much more. I'll definitely sing along (or mouth the words if I'm in public)

 

Also, as someone who works for a commercial radio station it makes me sad that so many people here say they don't listen to it anymore :(

I heard Good Riddance the other week. First time hearing GD on the radio in a very long time. Felt good I guess.
