The Top Ten

Boulevard of Broken Dreams
Great song simply love it I listen to it daily!
It is epic really... It is one of the best rock song I have heard in my life!
The soothing music. The thought-provoking lyrics. Billie's amazing voice. The enchanting video.
It's got everything ever needed for a perfect song!
I absolutely LOVE this song. It describes how I feel everyday! The song also proves that even famous musicians feel like they are lost in a different world wishing for someone to find them.

221 Guns
Awesome one.. Just Love it.. No-other song is as good as this one.. Green day Rocks... The more you listen.. The more you'll love
All in this song is awesome: the rhythm, the guitar, the lyrics...
Its very expressive!
Come on, this song deserves the 1st place!
Epic, simply epic, the seriousness of the song and then blasting out into ferocity to express the songs feelings, so punk.

3Holiday
Cannot stop listening to this song! Absolutely love the riff, playing on my own guitar is great fun. Enjoy every moment of it, from its Riffs, to its Solo, to its "rebelness" to its own Green Day Style. Love this one!
Way better than anything else by GD. This song is so punkish and awesome. I can listen to it over and over and not get tired of it
Holiday is more than a green day song, it could be an anthem for a 21st century rise generation because all of us can sing it loud at once, because is not anti American, it's anti-war

4Wake Me Up When September Ends
Billie joe dedicated this song to his dad who died during war... I'm sure this song means a lot to him.

It should be a toss-up between this and 21 Guns for the number 1 spot
Totally amazing :P the lyrics are significant, the guitar is amazing and the meaning of the song is simply very touching
It is really rare that an artist can communicate so much emotion through a song. The opening chords are enough to make me tear up a little.

5Basket Case
Green day started a revolution on 1994 with Dookie.. Their
Music had certainly had qualities similar to nirvana's (teenage angst).. They brought punk back into the mainstream.. They brought what the music industry needed at the time
Best Song by Green Day. Amazing yet funny lyrics and an explosive introduction! This song makes me think of the times that I've been Paranoid myself
Best song ever. It should be much higher on this chart. I also love this album dookie. It was the first green day album I ever had and I still listen to it 24/7. I think all green day fans should love this album;. Fl

6Jesus of Suburbia
Ok this song shows every members talents like when mike dirnt does the voice crescendos or when tre destroys the drums and of course billie just rocks it
Song that was on my head for whole of my college life... Awesome song!
I love this song so much. the lyrics are very touching to me. Green day is such an awesome band I love them so much. they really have helped me through everything.

7Good Riddance (Time of Your Life)
Although I love their faster songs (american idiot basket case etc) this is my favourite of them all. There are just no words to describe it. All I can say is Green Day are the best band of all time.
Inspiring. It really summarizes life, and can be applied to pretty much anyway anywhere. The acoustics are awesome, and it proves that Green day can do other types of music.
This is my favourite song, it's great because of acoustic guitar and its easy to play and sing
More comments about Good Riddance (Time of Your Life)Listen to sample

8American Idiot
Without a doubt the most well known Green day song, and according to many, it is the song that propelled Green Day to superstardom at the turn of the century. The song is essentially mocking American culture, its pig headedness, its ignorance and everything else. It has such a great rhythm created by grerat guitar playing. I guess the video is what will stay in our mindes the most though, that large American flag with green stripes melting!

The band's best album was named after the song. But despite its popularity, the song's magic I believe still cannot compare with the top five.
What the heck! This is Green Day's trademark, should be top 3 at least!

8gerrard8

there shouldn't have any bugging that amrican idiot is the best song of green day; 21 guns, holiday, Boulevard of Broken Dreams, novacaine, wake me up when sept. ends are among the bests after american idiot.

9Longview
One of the best punk songs ever. Its dynamics is awesome. The chorus is really heart grabbing. And the bridge! (I've got no motivation) is great. And just compare the lyrics with the name! Does it strike?
What the heck!? This is like Green Day's trademark and one of the best Punk songs of all time. Should be in the top 10 easily.

DalglishIsBack

I still do not understand how this is NOT in the top 5! This is one of their trademark songs and easily their most Punk song, ever. Listen to the chorus, it's the best chorus they've ever written along with 21 Guns. Vote!

10When I Come Around
Wow, nine really? This is one of green days best songs and it represents their best time and best music
It hurts to see that almost all of thw top ten songs are from American idiot or 21st century breakdown personally I believe dookie was way better than these two and when I come around is the best song EVER
Was at a Green Day concert with my sister, and this was one of the songs where most people just got the "what the f*** is this" face, while the rest screamed "when I come around"
One of the best concert moments apart from the "DIE DIE DIE" part of metallica's creeping DEATH!

The Contenders

11Welcome to Paradise
Catchy riff, great lyrics, Green Day at their best.
The best Green Day song on Dookie. Should most definitely be before Basket Case and maybe actually in the top 5. Great bass solo
Really really REALLY hard to choose, but I love the bass solo in this song Go Green Day!

12Whatsername
Remember whatever
It seems like forever ago
Awesome song man, get it in the top 15 guys please, this is pure punk!
Yess! I can listen to this on a loop and never get tired of it. A pity it's in 17th it's one of my favorite GD songs. I wish I could see them playing it live!
Not only my favorite Green Day song, but probably one of my favorite songs of all time! So emotional and a great conclusion to the album's story!

13Minority
This should be the best song ever written. They simply explain that they want no authority, and they're happy to be a minority.
I wanna be the minority!
I don't need your authority!
Down with the moral majority!
Cause I wanna be the minority!
I tend to CONNECT with this song the most.. Amazing lyrics
Awesome lyrics... Awesome music.. Nice aggression.. Fell for this song!

This song is awesome with a sexy riff.

WHAT THE HECK!? THIS IS THE GREATEST PUNK SONG OF ALL TIME! WHAT'S IT DOING IN 16TH!?
Definitely best song of all time by green day let's get this up there on top ten at least thought it should be number one!
More comments about Brain StewListen to sample

15Homecoming
This is easily the most underrated Green Day song ever! It is absolutely one of their best songs in terms of writing, vocals, and general theme. Billie's writing is phenomenal, but in this song, he completes the beautiful sad story of American Idiot. People vote this song up! "Home, we're coming home again" is one of the most powerful bits I've heard.
Amazing song! Way better than the much overrated Jesus of Suburbia.
This song is ok to say that this is the most underrated green day song OF ALL TIME, I don't know why people don't like this song and the lyrics really tell a story that's what I like about all of green day's songs

16Hitchin' a Ride
TOP 10 it's all American Idiot and 21st Century Breakdown. Don't get me wrong those 2 albums are GREAT, especially American Idiot, but you just can't put in the top 10 7 songs from American Idiot, you are leaving behind Minority, Hitchin' a Ride, Welcome to Paradise, Brain Stew, Longview.. Those are Green Day's classics..
The american idiot album was good, but the older Green Day music was amazing. Songs like hitchin' a ride along with welcome to paradise, long view, and brain stew are why we all love Green Day. The more punk stuff is their best stuff
This needs to be top ten... So does Longview... Brain Stew... Whatsername... Instead of the overrated jesus of suburbia, 21 guns, know your enemy and amercian idiot

17Know Your Enemy
I will be honest, when I first listened to this song I did not listen deeply enough to the lyrics and thus was surprised when I heard that it had won an award for deep and meaningful lyrics. But if you listen to it closely, it becomes so much easier to see how its great. Not only does it have a great rhythm but it sends a strong warning to people to avoid corruption and violence in the world as it labels it as the 'enemy'. Billie almost demands the question to the listener "Do you know the enemy? " indicating that it is extremely important to be aware of such evils I the world.
I have heard the best drums ever played in this song.. tre cool you rock... and what a superb screaming vocal... must be ahead... its smackdown theme song undoubtedly the song is due 2 its drums... thumps up...
This song made me rethink everything I thought about people and how to judge them so it should be a lot higher then number 10 like

18East Jesus Nowhere
This is such an AWESOME SONG, should be in TOP 10.

should be like no.5 or 4!
this song is DOWN RIGHT AWESOME! m/
this song really is one green day's masterpieces.
should be at least in top 5

1921st Century Breakdown
This song is awesome! This song will surely make up the whole album in its very few minutes. This song sums up the whole album. I can't stop hearing it. It reminds me of my old friends. We used to dance at the tune of this song this song is the trademark of our group and one of the Green Day's best song ever!
This is one of my favorite songs of all time. It's so sadly true, and more people need to hear it.
21st century is one of the best songs of green day, not the best (there are always better ones) but still it is very very very good! of course all green day songs are awesome

there is only one song I don't like. thats panic song (whats the deal with that) but every band has thier ups and downs

20She
"She" is pretty awesome. It seems to be over REALLY quickly, which is a shame. The chorus is really catchy and I just find it the most easy to listen to of theirs. Not necessarily their best but their most fun, and quick. Love it!
"She" is one of my favorite Green Day songs! I don't understand why it didn't get a higher ranking. The song is so underrated it sickens me.
One of the most energetic songs I ever heard. It is such a good song. It is very short but boh so powerful. The lyrics are great. By no means best but it is cerainly one of the best.

21Give 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

22Geek Stink Breath
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!?
More comments about Geek Stink BreathListen to sample

23Viva 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.
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.

cyclone1248

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.

24Warning
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

28Viva la Gloria? (Little Girl)
"RUNAWAY! FROM THE RIVER TO THE STREAM! And find yourself with your face in the gutter. YOU'RE STRAY FROM THE SALVATION ARMY! THERE IS NO PLACE LIKE HOME... When you've got no place to go. "
This at least deserves a spot in the top 20. It is one of Green Day's most thought-provoking songs that has many hidden lyrics in it. I love their music and this song is one of the best reflections on their music, their style, and their work. Shame to see it is not at least in the top 20.
This is the song I was able to listen to for 8 hour straight going to lake tahoe, of course its the best song ever and deserves to be in the top 10 ;D <3<3<3<3<3<3

29Redundant
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!

30Misery
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.

312000 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

32J.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.
Great song! Doesn't belong all the way down here

Great melody this song's got there. Just can't stop listening to it over and over again.

35Walking 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. "
Are you kidding me!? How is this at NUMBER 47!? This is one of the best songs from 90's Green Day and one of the best from Insomniac. This is so Punk, the beat, the lyrics, the vocals, everything:

"I have no belief, but I believe I'm a walking contradiction, and I ain't got no rights. "

Top 20 at least. Watch the video, it's awesome.

37Macy'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!

38Peacemaker
a great song by green day. what is it doing all the way down here? first listen to it and then you will see what I mean when I say it is good. its a terribly underrated song; deserves to be much higher up in the list, at least in the top 15.
I can't even begin do describe how I felt when 21st Century Breakdown came out. I never thought anything in the world would push Nimrod off my top stop, but the energy and sincerity that this album (and THIS SONG in particular) produced is going to be hard to top.

Green Day will always be important to those who see music for what it is, a fun and expressionistic way to get through tough times, rather than:
"BUT (X) CAN SHRED FASTER THAN (Y), DERP, IT'S SO OBVIOUS"

Green Day, please continue to destroy competition musicians.
This is just an awesome song. Especially the solo, I love the bridge too :D whenever I listen to this, I can't help just going to my Windows Media Player and turn it all up :D This is definitely the best song Green Day ever made, in my opinion.

I want this song up guys...! The lyrics, it's pure hatred! I just love this song. Please vote guys..!
Green Day are absolutely awesome - IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO CHOSE ONE SONG OVER ANOTHER - I'm voting for this one as it isn't as famous as some of the others.

It has a light tune - but if you go by the lyrics, you realize that it is actually full of hatred!
This song should be in top 5. Awesome lyrics, awesome tune... Everything for a good song!

44Christie Road
I freaking love this song. Why is this all the way down in the 30s and GD's newer stuff dominating the top? I love most, if not all, of their music but their older stuff is definitely the best. Kerplunk is an awesome album!
It should be ILLEGAL that this song isn't number one. How the hell is Boulevard Of Broken Dreams number one? I'll tell you how, because it is basically a pop song, and it had big mainstream success. Real Green Day fans will know that their best songs were their older ones. Okay, Jesus of Suburbia is the best of their new songs... Its just amazing, But Christie Road is the best of their songs full stop. Before you vote for American Idiot and 21 guns, listen to Christie Road; Its pure beauty. Well done Green Day for writing such an epic song. I never tire of hearing it.
Those who voted boulevard of broken dreams to Nr 1 probably never listened to kerplunk, right? This is is simply the best song aber made. This is one of the Songs, that made GD famous ; without it all those New Green Day Songs wouldn't exist at all.

48The Grouch
I LOVE this song, to me, it's one of the best songs on Nimrod, and maybe the best in general!
I had an young and optimistic point of view...
The beauty of this song is it's appeal to any generation. It immediately appeals to the younger kids with its punchy riff and in-your-face lyrics but you appreciate it more as you grow older. It's a self-reflective coming to grips with growing older song but with a punk rock attitude. "I was a young boy that had big plans, now I'm just another s***** old man" and "Wasted youth and a fistful of ideals, I had a young and optimistic point of view" sum up the son and pretty much every 20-something's life that is listening to it. One of Green Day's hidden treasures.
The best Green Day song by far. Love the guitar solo and the meaningful lyrics. I can't stop listening to this song. Love it.

50Restless Heart Syndrome
Powerful lyrics. Amazing tune. Beautiful guitar solo. This song is excellent. Who knew Billie Joe could hit such notes. When I first heard it, I spazzed out because I couldn't realize that such perfect music existed. LOVE IT! Another great job by Green Day, as always.
This isn't just Green Day's most under appreciated song but one of the most under appreciated epics in the history of rock music. This is one of Green Day's best ever songs. Years from now, generations of hardcore Green Day fanatics will look back and try to figure out why this Lennon-esque tune was never released as a single. I've never heard tell of a song this big being unreleased or unnoticed ever besides U2's Moment of Surrender.
Damn! Why is it in 25th place it should be higher than this this song really rocks, great intro and very very epic ending

This song from Green Day's latest album ¡Dos! And is a bonus track added otherwise to a 12 song collection and is dedicated to the late singer Amy Winehouse who died recently.
This has to be the best song from Green Day's recent trilogy of albums. Awesome tunes; brilliant, profound lyrics. More touching than any other Green Day song. And of course, reminiscent of the Beatles.

It's an awesome song with superb lyrics I am surprised to see it at 44 rank

But how is this 48? It is way better than 2000 light years away, or Burnout... And plus, It has its own story behind it.

I love the backup vocals! Mike Dirnt is a boss at bass and vocals. The drums are also epic!
Sure it's not the best green day song... BUT ITS WAY BETTER THAN BURNOUT or 2000 LIGHT YEARS AWAY! I mean come on! This song isn't the best song ever... BUT IT KICKS A**

65Stuart and the Ave.
Number 68? What the heck? This song is one of the best on insomniac. I'm sorry but the top ten are pretty much all American idiot hits. Don't get me wrong, I love that album but that's ridiculous.
Amazing bass riffs. This is my favorite green day song off of my favorite green day album. Should be number 1!
This song is catchy and real punk rock. At least this song is so meaningful for me.

66Last of the American Girls
This was like my anthem after the album came out. AWESOME SONG.
This song is so catchy and it's great. Just because green day has some great songs, you should still vote for the good ones! I don't understand why it's rank is so low, share the tunes

70Blood, Sex, and Booze
Awesome song but my favourite song is waiting from the album warning and its not even on this list
İ love the rhythm of this song and the lyrics too this song should be in top25 for sure if you haven't listened this song you should quick
One of the best songs of Green Day, it should be top 10 or near
Una de las mejores canciones de Green Day, tendría que estar en el top 10 o cerca

71Who Wrote Holden Caulfield?
WHY IS THIS SONG NOT EVEN ON THIS LIST? Yeah, almost ALL of Green Day's songs are amazing, but seriously, Who Wrote Holden Caulfield is bliss. It sums up teenage angst, alienation, rebellion, and everything else every teen has experienced before with catchy guitar riffs, a good bassline, and a nice drum pattern. This song is even better live on AAF. The lyrics are epic, the melody is great. This should at least be in the top 20's, if not on the top 10's. LISTEN TO IT AND FALL IN LOVE.

IdioticKilljoy

Laugh out loud, its in position 69... Wait a minute it should be number 1! Best song of the early years and has a super catchy chorus and killer guitar and bass riffs. Billie's vocals are spot on as always. The first time I heard this song was on Awesome As F*, but its still a really awesome song!
This song has such a catchy beat, and it sums up the struggles of teenage angst, alienation, and other problems that at some point any teenager can relate to. Why is it not even on the list? The melody and the lyrics are amazing... And I can't seem to get tired of listening to this song.

74Panic Song
This is a great song the intro reminds me of the who I think Green Day gets a lot of its inspiration from the who, then "the world is a sick machine breeding a massive s***" hahaa great stuff!
My favorite Green Day song. a long, epic, 2 minute intro-then all hell breaks loose.

Renewed my faith in Green Day. I thought they should have stopped... And then I heard this song. It is absolutely brilliant!
I thought that Green Day should have ended. And then this song came out. It just goes to show that this band never gets old
Awesome song.. Best song off their new album... Tre rocks and so does Green Day...

76Stay the Night
Best song from Uno! Why am I scrolling so far down the page to find it?!
Great song.. I know its new one but doesn't mean it can't be on top listen to it beautiful song
This is the best song of the UNO album. What is it doing at 77?

77We Are the Waiting
Best GD song ever! American Idiot completely changed my opinion about them and I just love them. I must confess that UNO was quite disapointing in my opinion.. One of GD's most beautiful live moments was during THIS song, when the thousands of people sang along, and Billie Joe just had this pure happiness smile on his face.. Touched me so much.. GREEN DAY forever! VOTE FOR THIS SONG!
One of the best songs by green day it's pure epicness from beginning to end, this song goes beyond punk rock and takes green day to higher levels. Very melodic and recommend it to you all
This is my most lovable ballady type song reminds me of my childhood days when we play this song and I think it's their best song in their album American idiot and also way better than Boulevard of broken dreams and Jesus of suburbia

The only great classic from the album waiting. Full of punkiness

79Platypus (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!

80Nuclear Family
Why is this 74... I know it's new but it should be higher! Come on people, you know this song is amazing!

81The Static Age
What the fck is wrong with you people? This song is brilliant! The energy it brings with it is amazing! One of the best off 21stCB... Definitely top20 at least!
once this song is near the end the energy from it is amazing not there best song of all time but in the top 10
This song is amazing, why it is not in top 20!?
Listen to sample

82Are We the Waiting
Definitely in the top ten green day songs! Each element of the song comes in at a different time, like Longview, but it is such a beautiful song about uncertainty, the perfect followup to BoBD. The lyrics are succinct, but each phrase has a strong meaning. Need I mention BJ's heartfelt performance on Bullet in a Bible?
Amazing song! And when it starts after Boulevard Of Broken Dreams, it feels soothing.

83American Eulogy
Now, wait a second. One of the classiest Green Day songs. Beggining has an epic pure punk beat. When I look up I see all this stuff I've never seen before. People, before you rate higher songs, listen to this and realize how great it is.
THIS SONG IS AWESOME!
The first part of the song sounds Like Deadbeat Holiday but 20 times better.
The Second Part is also epic and shows off Mike's vocal skills. And how it mysteriously fades off in the end is creepy but cool.
Simply putting it, easily one of the best Green Day songs they have ever written. The change in pace from the beginning, the pure punk rock sound coming out of the guitar. This should be so much higher than this. A truly amazing song. Love it.

84Before the Lobotomy
Come on...! This is an AWESOME song...! What the hell is it doing on the 57th place..?! It should be at least is the top 5...! Listen to it such a great song..! People whats wrong with y'all..? If you hate this song then you are 100% not a green day fan nor you have any clue what a real song is...!
I love this song. I can't believe its not in the top ten. It starts out soft like good riddance, then goes into the typical green day rock, then ends the way it began with a little more power behind it.
Underrated song, amazing lyrics.. Deserves to be in the top ten at least..!
come on vote it up..!

One of the most underrated songs of their most underrated albums. Come on guys, this song is perfect! I'm not saying that songs like 21 guns and stuff are bad, but this is simply one of the best pop-punk songs of all time! Get voting already

90No 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...

91Oh Love
The new tune is amazing. A totally fresh green day song
Listening to this song RIGHT NOW! Their new album is amazing and this is easily the best song in it along with carpe diem. Hope this song makes the top 10 its so good. Most people don't have the new album yet so I urge them to get it, I like the tune of this song. Its amazing.
Great song. Reaching at rank 1 billboard so quickly after its release.

95The Forgotten
I hate Twilight, but I love this song. It kind of reminds me of Last Night on Earth. Also it's a sad song.
"Where in the world did the time go?... " Makes me nostalgic. Green Day has the ability to touch the chords of your heart, in the most pure way. And this song does that very well.
Best slow song of the trio!
