Okay, to me it's like that:
First EPs and singles combined into 1,039 Smoothed Out Slappy Hours plus Kerplunk phases, punk.
Dookie, pop punk.
Insomniac to Warning, lame pop punk.
From then on, that thing right there.

To me the punkest thing Green Day has ever done is this cover version for Husker Du's.

Green Day
Published on Sep 10, 2019

this record is The New!
soul, Motown, glam and manic anthemic. Punks, freaks and punishers!
The Dirty messy . The Stink. ,
The lyrics are like a party and lifestyle of not giving a ****. The life AND death of the party. Not political. Surviving in chaos. The real ****.
Me mike and Tre of the Green Day cut through the bull****. That’s how it’s always been for us. Everything else is fake. Frauds I tell ya!!
Rock has lost its balls. We’re gonna teabag all these mother ****ers. The baddest rock band on the planet that gives a ****.
“Glorious” or “glorious anarchy” seems to be the word that keeps coming up that reflects
Dancing
Tribalism
Anxiety
Joy
Violence
Drugs
Booze
Dangerous songs for dangerous kids!

Our motto??
“Nothing says **** you like a unicorn”

Love And kisses
Billie

New album Father Of All... out February 7th, 2020!!!!

last, but never least… we’re bringing the rock on the road all next year (hitting North America, Europe, Asia, etc). The Hella Mega Tour Presented by Harley-Davidson with Green Day, Fall Out Boy, Weezer + The Interrupters is coming to a stadium near you! Get dates + all the pre-sale

LYRICS

I woke up to a message of love/choking up on the smoke from above/I’m obsessed with the poison and us/what a mess because there’s no one to trust

Huh uh Come on honey/huh uh count your money/huh uh what’s so funny? there’s a riot living inside of us

I got paranoia baby/and it’s so hysterical/cracking up under the pressure/looking for a miracle

Huh uh come on honey lying in a bed of blood and money
Huh uh what’s so funny?
We are rivals in the riot inside us

I’m impressed with the presence of none
I’m possessed by the heat of the sun
Hurry up cause I’m making a fuss
Fingers up ������
Cause there’s no one to trust

#GreenDay #FatherOfAll #HellaMegaTour

They were definitely a punk band from 39/smooth thru Dookie.

They started to go alternative with Insomniac and by Nimrod I had stopped caring

Pop punk which is a pretty feeble mutation IMHO, but it sells better and is fun so who can blame them.
Same with the mutation of the proper UK industrial sound into Industrial metal, nowhere near the same thing but they can make a living out of it.

As an older guy that was there for original punk (NYC)....I never ever felt anything Greenday sounded like punk to me. They were "maybe" pop punk at certain times.

Punk aesthetic but just slightly edgy pop rock at this point. Maybe their earlier stuff was pop punk, from that Gilman scene. But bands evolve, their sound changes over time. I don't think Green Day or any other band is trying to force themselves into any particular genre.
