How? HOW? This song is unbelievable, and it's 19th? This song has got the greatest guitar riffs in the history of the world! The only people who didn't vote for this song are people who have never listened to it!
True Green Day. An awesome Punk song. Better than all the songs listed in the top 10 without a doubt. It seems a lot of people underrate Insomniac and the other lesser-known Green Day albums.
This list is complete crap! How is this not in the top 10!? This, REDUNDANT, HITCHIN A RIDE, LONGVIEW, BRAIN STEW, MACY's DAY PARADE ETC should all be MUCH higher! Where's all the REAL GD fans!?
[Newest]This song should be way higher. Insomniac was an amazing album. 👌

22Macy's Day Parade
I don't understand how this is 23, I'm green day's biggest fan and I know every single one of these songs and this one should definitely be up there! Maybe its not as famous as 21 guns or boulevard of broken dreams but if you knew it, you'd be impressed. Its simply beautiful and brings tears and smiles every time
I agree 100%. It's sad to see this great song being wasted down here. It's got beautiful lyrics and an even better rhythm! The acoustic guitar is solid throughout the whole song! Much better than some of the stuff in the top 10!
This song in my opinion is Green Day's best song its sad to see it being ignored here. This song is very true and I'm sure many people can relate to it!
[Newest]This has got to be the best song off of Warning... Church On Sunday is up there too

23No One Knows
As I heard it for the first time a long ago, thought it can't be an usual Green Day song, but I really liked! Anyway, this song makes me feel old, irresponsible, habitual... But when I think of it, I fill my head with schemes, and ten I think again cause no one knows...
The only reason this song is so low is because most people have never listened to it.
So Old but Very Beautiful

24Letterbomb
How is this not with in the top 5! It's green day at it's best in my opinion! VOTE
Best song by Green Day in my opinion. Billy Joe also says its his favorite on the album in one of their videos in concert
Love the intro, with the guitar, then the drumming
[Newest]Letterbomb is better than Boulevard of broken dreams... Posers only know the popular songs

25Give Me Novacaine
Give me a long kiss goodnight
and everything will be alright
Soothing yet pulsating... this is my favorite
This is my all time favorite song.
this song carried me through hard times and made the good times incredible. BEST SONG EVER! Top Ten 4 sure!
I could never in my life find a song that can rival this.
Green Day at their finest. I am and will forever be a fan because of this song if nothing else. I love them, I love this song, this song is me!
Truly a work of art, Beautifull! Truly damn beautiful
[Newest]This song is absolutely the best I've ever heard. I know it's about drugs, but in my opinion it's so much more than that. This is my all time favourite song.

26Armatage Shanks
Insomniac best album. Armatage Shanks best song. Period.
Great song, pure punk

27Viva la Gloria!
How is this not 20 times higher? By far the most underrated Green Day song. The lyrics are very touching. The song is about Gloria, a poor girl who is living on the street and how life will get better. When I listen to it I cry.
Wow, 23? That's sinful. This song has everything a person looks for in a Green Day song! I'd list these key components, but I'm assuming that you (the reader) know what they are since you're reading this list. This song is my favorite Green Day song. There. I said it. My other favorites include Boulevard of Broken Dreams, Basket Case, Wake Me Up... , Holiday, and Longview. Please give this song a chance.
How is this not even on the list, it should be at least top 20. I don't care that it's new Green Day, because it still has the punk feel of their older songs.

[Newest]One of my favorites... Probably in my top 3. The most underrated Green Day song.

28Stuck With Me
This song is awesome! It should be ranked way higher1
It's just their most energetic, but melodic song. It comes in says what it needs to, and hits the cuts. It stays the same volume the entire song. It has the melancholy ending, which means that he's not alright but has to way to change that so he just lets himself go crazy! GD FOR LIFE!
My favorite song. It's so underrated. By far one of Green Day's most underrated, if not, most underrated single.

29Misery
This is definitely one of my favorite Green Day songs. It is a great reality and only a lyrical genius could script a story line like this to fit so well.

I can't believe it didn't make the list at all!
Very interesting melody. I think it deserves to be much higher on this list.
This song is amazing and tells an entertaining, if sad, story. The tune is great, and the message is just not clear ENOUGH wish is fabulous.
[Newest]Ok so the new albums are good..
But you should really listen to the old stuff guys!
I think it's a great song from a great album

30J.A.R.
The fact that this isn't number one means not enough people even know it exists. It was on the Angus soundtrack and is the most well-rounded and heart-felt songs ever written by Green Day. It's high up there on my all-time favorite songs. Anyone who is wondering, "What the hell song is this? " give it a listen, read the lyrics and the backstory, and enjoy.
I can't really pick a favorite song, but J.A.R. is criminally low. This song is much better than anything off American Idiot or 21st Century Breakdown. It's sad how many "fans" don't listen to their music that came out before AI.
This is just a great song in general. Always reminds me of great times and good memories even though the song is rather sad considering it's about there good friend who died in a car crash at the age of 19 or 18. Miss my childhood man

31Redundant
The best song on NIMROD along with Hitchin A Ride of course. Should be at LEAST in the top 15-20, listen and vote for this extremely underrated song. It's better than half the songs ahead of it at the moment.
REDUNDANT IS THE MASTERPIECE OF GREEN DAY. BEST SONG THEY'VE ever MADE. Maybe those people just ever heard American Idiot and 21st Century Breakdown. They never know how awesome early Green Day's song. REAL GREEN DAY'S FANS SHOULD VOTE THIS SONG
This song is very underrated. The beat is awesome, the vocals are great and the lyrics make perfect sense. Should be in the top 15!

[Newest]WHY IS THIS SO FAR DOWN? This is such a good song + the music video was amazing.


32St. Jimmy
I DEFINETLY AGREE WITH YOU MY FRIEND
THE GREATEST SONG OF GREEN DAY MUST HAVE A POSITION IN AT LEAST TOP 10
the great vocals by BJ the magik of drint and tre cool makes this song evergreen!
Oh my Gods! Like, there must be only a few guys to vote for this? WHERE ARE THE DIE HARD GREEN DAY FANS?! THIS SONG SHOULD so BE IN THE TOP 10! :(... PLEASE VOTE
This song has some awesome drums. It shows how good of a drummer tre is. I also love the guitar. Its pretty fast too. Personally I think that this should be in the top 5
[Newest]This song I reckon is what I am

33Warning
omg! what is this song doing on the 30th place? it definitely deserves a place int the top ten!
This song is ultimate punk, and the music video is supreme. Not to be discounted. Top Ten voters, have you only heard American Idiot and 21st Century Breakdown albums?
Probably one of the best songs of the year 2000. It is one of those green day songs that is easy to understand and is less serious
[Newest]"Question everything, or shut up and be a victim of authority." How can you NOT like this song? If you're reading this please please please listen to it.

342000 Light Years Away
Back in 2010, I wrote off Green Day as being a crappy emo band because I forgot their classics before 2004 (well maybe Good Riddance affected that opinion as well). Then I saw the 1994 live version of this song, and BAM I'm a fan again. It's 2012 and this band IS me from 1000 Hours to The Forgotten.
This song is great. In 2005, I bought bullet in a bible, and my love for green day carried on from their. It is 2013, and songs like this I enjoy

35Lazy Bones
I love this song, with all my heart
By far the best track off of Dos! And it deserves to be on this list, hopefully somewhat high because this is a kick ass song! Go Green Day! Don't ever stop making music!
It might be a new song but it's better than other songs higher in this list.
[Newest]This song was actually good and had a vary different sound. I can really to this song a lot.

36Burnout
I personally LOVE this song and it's underrated, since it was on Dookie it didn't gain as much attention as big hits such as Longview and Basket Case. I believe this song was the best on Dookie, it's great combo of Drums/Guitar and quick pace put it higher on my list. Top 20 doubt.
Just listen to the drumming. You'll hear why this song is their best one to date.
Should be much higher on this list, possibly even top 10. Burnout is a classic Green Day song that has amazing drumming
[Newest]The beginning of Dookie, the real beginning of Green Day!

37Walking Contradiction
"talk is cheap and lies are expensive, my wallets fat but so is my head. Hit and run and then I'll hit you again, a smart mouth, yeah, but I'm playing dumb. "
What a joke! I would have picked it in my top 10... Best green day song... Please vote for it guys.. It deserves a much better position... Green day rocks
Bloody hell, does NOBODY remember or appreciate "Insomniac? " I'm also shocked that "Bab's Uvula Who" is above this one... It's a great song, but this one, THIS song hooked me on Green Day for life, even through their 'weaker' times. I don't give two flying copulations about anyone who says the band members are like 40-plus burnouts trying to be teenagers, they had it then, and they still have it now. I DO have a belief! Here's to a classic!
[Newest]The best song off of Insomniac (Their most Punk Album) It's sad that only American Idiot songs are up there. TRUE Green Day FANS (NOT YOU TEENAGERS{SCREW YOU}) KNOW THAT THEY SOLD OUT. AND THAT'S SAD. WE WERE CUT. NO MORE PUNK ROCK. JUST MAINSTREAM POP PUNK (Which is in the same genre as Fall Out Boy, need I go on? )

Here's to a once great band.

38Waiting
Great melody this song's got there. Just can't stop listening to it over and over again.
Not their best song, but deserves higher position in the list surely!
Vote up guys! Thanks
You gotta be kidding me! I understand not everyone thinking it's the best Green Day song, but 56 is pretty low for a song that's one of their greatest hits!
[Newest]It's incredible. Perfectly captures Green Day's good punk side

39Only of You

40Nice Guys Finish Last
What a song should be number 10 or number 13 amazing guitar bass and drums really good in rock band Green Day get voting for this song peoplke it rocks it may not be the best song that Green Day made but it is still a good song to be up near the top not down at number 45
