101See the Light
I really don't see how this is ranked so low, awesome guitar work, nice drum line, lyrics, tune EVERYTHING. Should be at LEAST number 50, such a great song
Best song ever let alone by green day
Lyrics are awesome, & meaning is so open and relative

102Extraordinary Girl
A great chorus attached to a great pop song
Great song with with a good tune

103Wow! That's Loud

This is a really underrated song; completely
How is this song ranked so low?! One of best songs from Warning, but not even in top 100!


To know you is to hate you so loving you must be like suicide... best song ever

A great song. My favourite on nimrod along with redundant and hitchin a ride. It should be in the top 20. The reason why this is overlooked is because Green Day didn't make it a single. It has a great riff, it's catchy and has some great lyrics. Everything you ask for in a song.
Amaizing lyrics. and riff and its awesome.

106Take Back
Yep, this song rocks! It may only be 1 minute long, but its awesome! One of my favorite from Nimrod. Surprising that it made the list.

107Hold On

108Do Da Da

109Rusty James

110Walking Alone
Personally I've listened this song more than boulevard of broken dreams it attracts me its my drug songs music make me feel better in sorrow different piece of music created by green day they should have released its official video so that it could come to public and I guarantee it will break through the charts... Love this song
Not on list? Great harmonica and beautiful chorus. Put it straight in top 20. No ones gonna vote for it if it's right down the bottom!
What!? How is this 110? This is such an underrated song and it's my favorite from Insomniac.

111One for the Razorbacks
I have always loved this song! It's sad how most "fans" haven't even heard it.

112Sweet 16
Sweet 16 is a song for the diehard Green Day fans absolutely amazing. My number 1

113When It's Time
A wonderful song.. Must listen. The time ticks around you- Full of orgasm. A must for lovers for this one really makes your heart move and fly.
What? One of the most soothing songs of green day and a 55th spot? People you GOT to vote for this one now!
Amazing and most soothing track green day ever producing. It is unlike their new pop punk rock song songs and it is quite meaningful too.

It seems fitting that it's number 86, but in my opinion, it should he number 1, as the story feels much more real than their other songs, as the band lived through the same experience when they were banned from playing 924 Gillman Street again after signing to a major label.
There's no return from 86... This song is awesome!
This is one of the most punk songs Green Day has! It should be in the top 20.

115Stop When the Red Lights Flash
This song is epic when I heard it on the NFS Soundtrack I feel in love with it straight away.
Among the top 4 of "Dos! ", which is the best of the trilogy, I think this song deserves better.

116Wild One

117One of My Lies
Hey guys, it is a felony for this song to be at #135. I'm not a jailer or judge but
Anyways, the meaning of this song is brilliant for any teenager finding his/her way in this world. Not to mention the sly quip on religion in the bridge. But the biggest reason why this is in my top 25 Green Day songs is, that BOTH the verse melody and hook melody kick ass! How many songs can boast as much? - Mark Y.
My personal favourite of the Green Day collection. The words are possibly the best written by Billie Joe -
When I was younger I thought that the world circled around me,
But in time I realised I was so wrong,
My immortal thoughts turned into just dreams of a dead future,
It was a tragic case of my reality!


118409 In Your Coffeemaker


120Sick of Me

Nobody likes Insomniac I guess based on the votes, but I loved this album. Brat, Stuart & the Ave and No Pride are easily in my top 10 Green Day songs, guess y'all commenters don't agree, it's a shame that this is ranked 120

122The Judge's Daughter

123Prosthetic Head
This song does not deserve to be 100th, it is way better than Paper Lanterns or Platypus. Come on guys lets get this up a bit!

124Words I Might Have Ate
Best song that inspired me GREEN DAY ROCKS! +

125All the Time


127Christian's Inferno

128Sweet Children

129Emenius Sleepus
Really underrated Dookie song. Got caught up in all the other hits.
Bass line is sick

130Private Ale
People are entitled to their opinion, this is mine. I feel this song represents me best at my college age. No clear idea of my future, no reason to care, but the feelings for girls who don't know me. All are present in this song.
Catchy chorus, great lyrics. Should not be this low!

131Fashion Victim
One of my favorite green day songs. It definitely deserves to be in the top 20 if not in the top 10. THIS SONG IS BOSS! Going once, Going twice, It's Gone!
Poop popsicles on yo' butthole. This song is awesome. Eat turd and drink piss then have sex with a cat.

1321,000 Hours
This is such a beautiful song! It should be in the top 30 at least, not 128.
This is their first song
AM I THE ONLY ONE WHO LOVES THIS SONG this is absolute favorite song

133Lights Out



Am I really the only person who likes this song? This is my favorite on Nimrod and probably their most underrated ever :D

A good song from their new album dos! Deserves some likes here.

This is "pre-sellout" Green Day.

139I Was There
Teaches not to forget our past with help of Cool music
Great song and good lyrics. Love it!

If you want to type it up, it will be a complete waste of your time as it's only an instrumental. It also sounds like a James Bond tune. DB7

141Last Ride In
I listen to it while doing homework


143Dominated Love Slave
Great song, I love how tre cool and mike dirnt sing together in a country voice
Tre is just plain AMAZING the drums could be better but the drummer was singing ;D

144Makeout Party
Best song of Dos. Has catchy lyrics and a very catchy riff. Not to mention the scream halfway through the guitar solo. A risky but succesful Green Day song in my opinion.


145See You Tonight

146A Quick One While He's Away

147No Pride




151Green Day
This is one of my favorite punk rock songs of all time.


152State of Shock

153Disappearing Boy

From the album Tre

155Like a Rolling Stone

156Another State of Mind

157That's All Right

158Driving Under the Influence

159I Don't Want to Know If You Are Lonely

160I Fought the Law

161The Ballad of Wilhelm Fink

162Favorite Son

163I Want to Be Alone

This song off the album Shenanigans. I was going to vote for it, and then I saw that it wasn't even on the list!

165Horseshoes and Handgrenades
There's tremendous energy in this song not present in most other post-2000 Green Day songs, and it doesn't feel contrived, like Jesus of Suburbia or East Jesus Nowhere. The musical context (comes right after Restless Heart Syndrome) gives it extra punch. A real head-banger... I usually prefer 90's Green Day, but this song really does it for me.


This is number 6 on my personal list and I cannot believe it isn't at least in the top 20! Vote now, this song is insanely good!
A great song that should be in the top 10 at least
[Newest]People on this site are just plain dumb!

166Song of the Century
All right. The tune isn't great, but the meaning is very deep and touching.
Why is this song last? It is awesome!?!
How is this so forgotten! Really enjoyed this definitely at least a top 30

167King for a Day
No! WHAT IS IT DOING at 54? It is the best green day song ever! Watch it live! Its hilarious. And the lyrics tell you that you should be proud of your self - no matter what! C'mon! Have you ever listened to this song? The lyrics are pure gold! STARTED AT THE AGE FOUR MY MOTHER WENT TO THE GROCERY STORE I SNEAK IN TO HER ROOM TO TRY ON SOMETHING IN A SIZE FOUR SUGAR AND SPICE AND EVERYTHING NICE WASN'T MADE FOR ONLY GIRLS!
King for a Day is one of the Best songs by my favorite band Green Day. The Music is so catchy and full of energy, and the trumpet adds to how funny this songs ends, when it falls apart. And it is in a lot of Green Day concert set lists, because the fans love the song it should at least be in the top 20.
It has such an amazing melody and the lyrics are so epic! Especially if you see this song live, the band wear hilarious outfits that make them look like total drag queens. I STARTED CRACKING UP WHEN I HEARD THE LYRICS! AND THE TRUMPET IS TO DIE FOR!


[Newest]This one's good I guess.


169Sex, Drugs, & Violence
160? This needs to be up up higher at least 40, maybe 30

This song yo can hear when you get three stars on all the levels on the Green Day stage on Angry Birds friends on Facebook and its GOOD.


From the album uno must listen it.

171Fell For You

172Platypus (I Hate You)
Its almost scary that this is 132! This is Green Day's Best Punk Rage Song! Listen to it and you'll understand why it should definitely be at least in the top 30! Though it may not be their BEST song, it is still and awesome song to rock out to! Nimrod should be a lot more popular than it currently is, Its an album that stands out so much compared to what is in the top ten (which is mostly American idiot and 21st century breakdown crap) and don't get me wrong, I love American Idiot but that is what most people think of when they hear Green Day and it's time their old classics like Platypus get some recognition!
This song can't be on 108 place, It's amazing! This have to be in the top 25! It's one of the best Green Day songs, and one of my favorites too!

173Kill the DJ
The song should be rated much higher, it is one of the catchiest rock songs ever and unlike other catchy songs it doesn't get overplayed.
This isn't the Green Day we are used to hearing, this is the more FUNK side of Green Day. But man, what a song. An attack on today's mainstream radio. Love the riff, drum beat and bass. A great song.
You will really want to dance on this and sing it from the bottom of your heart and the solo is like a drug
[Newest]What... why is it 157? It should be higher like way

174Baby Eyes
Truly inspirational. Passionate music all around. IFyou voted for anything else punk, you just haven't heard this song. Maybe baby eyes isn't the most soothing, but it sure tugs at my heart strings.
Holy crap. Either this or viva la gloria are my #1favorite Green Day song. Ifyou listen to it, just make it half way through this song before judging it. It's under 3 minutes andit's got everything you would expect from a explosive, yet passionate Green Day song. Truly inspirational.

This song is horrible. It is auto tuned as hell. This voice effect worked on billie in I run New York with lonely island but with this song, it just didn't work.


This is probably the worst Green Day song in the history
Of Green Day. This should be number 168, also dominated love slave and song of the century are way better than stupid auto tuned song that doesn't make any sense.
Taking a ride to my old haunt Shes in my blood, I reside in my nightlife My favourite colors candy apple

176The Simpsons Theme
This song rules

Not really

177Tight Wad Hill
Not a very good song by them, but should not be THIS LOW!

178Lady Cobra

179All by Myself
I am disappointed with humanity.
