Indeed. I respect your opinions but I wanted to just know the genre. There is a time and place for a debate if they are good or not but this thread isn't that place and the time isn't now.
I have herd of them as Grunge (hence the genre I have them under now), is this true? what albums reflect this style?

I think it mainly reffers to that fact they had long hair and came out around the grunge period. Pretty much every band that didn't dress up fancy and played rock and had long hair was being labelled grunge.

Their latest stuff is just as rocky as it is punky. And about 70% pop.

Green Day are pop punk, duh.

But then again, pop punk is a loose term isnt it?...Oh if you are pop, you cant be true punk?


Everything by The Ramones has a pop quality to it, you cant tell me im wrong, they always use the formula that works for any pop song, a nice riff with a catchy as hell verse and even catchier chorus, and no solos to clutter things up, its about as pop as you can get...Listen to The Clampdown from The Clash, if that isnt what you call "pop punk" then i dont know what is.

The problem with pop punk is. The queers are pop punk and new blink is pop punk. They sound nothing like, just like what booboo said. Its to loose of a term.

i own everything green day have done from the sweet children days up until...ah-hem 'American Idiot' which we shall immediately pretend didn't happen but for a few songs. actually, nah it was pretty good that album.

Personally, i hate to bring an old topic done time and time again BUT, i'd agree with the general concencus, the old Green Day was almost certainly Punk (check i wanna be on TV - very punk) but now its that sort of music that any 12 year old can stick a black hoodie onto and listen at full volume and think he/she's different and rebelling. How can you go from Tre Cool lubing up a drumkit and anally cavorting it with class in 'Burnout' to......zzzzz...are we, we are......zzzzz....the waiting?!?

If i made a genre to put Green Day in, it would be f'ing brilliant.
Whoever said "I'd say they're genre is sucky-poser-sell out ****. Atleast that's how I would classify them if I had them on my ipod or something.", my god, you're a feckin eejit. perhaps you'd like to explain the term sold-out, or are you all out of monosyllabic SHITE?

Punk is just another marketable label the mainstream is selling to kids, just like emo, indie, and hardcore. People still don't know what they're talking about.

Yeah, I believe you were right with pop!!!They used to have elements of punk rock, but it's recently a lot more in the pop category, peace!!!
