A great band is just not a band who play great music, you recognize a great to his child. Elvis, The Clash, The Ramones, Eddie Cochran, The Beatles all this artits lead the way to the new generations and inspired so many great bands. Like a big circle of music.
The question is : what will be the Green Day's legacy ? A few Dirty Rotten Bastards ?
After Dookie we saw various shitty band pseudo-punk-skate-rebel bands pop up, the same with American Idiot we saw emo-punk-dressinblack bands sing shit on the waves.
A few weeks ago I remember a news on GDA where 5 Seconds of Summer claim their love to Green Day, etc...
So I listen some of their songs and... what a shame... That's heavy sh*t.
After the Rolling Stones, The Clash, Queen or U2, I think sometimes Green Day is the very last rock band that will make history of music. And no one is there to take over.
So what will be the Green Day's legacy ? What do you think of that guys ?
