You are right but what impact have they made on rock music to get inducted in the hall?

There 00's music sounds very cheesy to me. Maybe I should listen to their 90's material. I think there are more deserving artists that should get inducted before them.

They were unique in the punk rock style they emulated with their music and stage presence. Although I find one outgrows their music quickly. The same is with most punk rock for me personally anyway. I find it boring after a short period of time.

Their early stuff is a lot of fun. Mike Dirnt's actually a pretty decent bassist but he really got overshadowed as they got more popular. Their later releases barely had him in the mix. I guess my issue with them is... they grew up here, in SF/the Bay Area, played shows with the likes of FILTH and BLATZ at the Gilman. They never wrote songs about anything but having fun and being young but now Billie's a total rockstar douchebag. I equate them to Nirvana in that they definitely wrote some great songs but they've become overplayed. And they definitely don't deserve to be in the RHOF... they might celebrities but they didn't do much for the music world. Making it big playing watered down mallpunk is hardly an accomplishment, blissful as those early records were.

Soo... I listened to the trilogy a couple of days ago. Soulless, cheesy and boring. Anyone else listened to the new ones?

I just wanted to say that I read the first few pages of this thread, and it served as no surprise that those who were praising this 'punk' band that some were hilariously called an 'emo' band (I really laughed out loud, that somebody actually thinks that Green Day is an emo band...) seemed to be still in high school and in their teens. That explains the adoration.

They're a nominee in the Rock Hall Of Fame purely for the fact of how long they've been around, their massive fanbase, and amount of albums sold. What more could it be based on? There's nothing really impressive musically, whatsoever. I understand Nine Inch Nails being a nominee, an impressive body of work with that band (well, it's been mainly Trent Reznor doing everything since the bands inception when Richard Patrick of Filter and Marylin Manson were in the band as guitarists...) But, why Green Day other than the reason I mentioned? Popularity, popularity, popularity...contest. That's why for the most part I ignore this once respectable thing called The Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame. It's a joke anymore...

I hated the trilogy, actually. I was expecting the last album to be good, since they claimed it was a return to the origins, but it was quite bad too.
I did however loved the 20th Century Breakdown one though (I even bought a T-shirt of it :v) I love conceptual albums like that though.
I found it to be superior to American Idiot, at least.

American Idiot is my favorite of their albums.

This is everything I feared after seeing the brutal battle on Twitter between people who I felt were taking the dunk opportunities to show off, and the die-hards who said this was "won of their best."

Call me a boomer, but I'm going to listen to Dookie.
