102The Saints Are Coming
This is the best song by green day... This should be in the top ten.. If haven't heard it, you don't deserve to be seeing this list
Amazing! And this one is featuring u2
I find it ridiculous the saints are coming is possibly the best song og U2 and Green Day it was my favorite song for a month listened to it literally NON-STOP! Amazaing guitar sick drums and overall a powerful lyrics and the best part is it is a benefit to New Orleans overfull man is this my favorite song

103Walking Alone
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!
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

105At the Library
If you really like Green Day, and eventually shift to their earlier albums, this song will be a huge surprise to you
Holy crap! What happened? It's like American Idiot & 21st century are their only albums! Half of you don't even know what 39/Smooth is! Great, relatable, song.
Listen to sample

106Dry Ice
Just everything about this song shows how much better the first 2 albums really are, not that the new ones are bad or anything, the early stuffs just on another level, feel sorry for 90% of green day fans that haven't even heard the old songs, because I guarantee if they gave it a chance they would like it 5x more than songs like american idiot.

107When 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.

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.

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!

110See 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
Listen to sample

111Horseshoes 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]Man this is d music is one of d best at in top 20

121All the Time Listen to sample

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.
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.

123Working Class Hero
This song was a cover of the John Lennon version, with a beautiful added touch. Basically, the song describes the problems ( such as discrimination and torture) workers endure in corrupted systems mostly seen in the third world. Except throughout Green Day's version, quotes from Sudanese ppeople are added to address the growing civil war and the poisnous working atmosphere that occurs un Darfur. Green Day not only tries to show people what's going on but sends a message that steps have to be taken, rendering this song a special masterpiece.
This list would be just about perfect if. This song were in the top ten. Honestly I think Green Day's cover was better than Lennon's original. Don't get me wrong, I love John Lennon, but the punkedness (not a word) of green days cover was an excellent touch. Reminded me a little of holiday, but catchier.

125Emenius Sleepus
Really underrated Dookie song. Got caught up in all the other hits.

126Private 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!
Listen to sample

127Fashion 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.

135One 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!

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

143Makeout 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.

164Platypus (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!

165Kill 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

166King 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!
