The Top Ten
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.
My first English rock song... that I can sing... Never forget it.. Tooo touchyV 409 Comments
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
Best Green Day song ever written and also on the best Green Day album, don't FORGET IT!V 149 Comments
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.
Hands down, one of the best songs ever made. Punk Rock's "Bohemian Rhapsody" (To me at least), this is Green Day at its finest, displaying a concise storytelling with Billie's altering vocal change (Melodic in "City of the Damned" to near-hardcore in "I Don't Care") and great bass and drumming work from Dirnt and Tre respectively, together with superb guitar work, creating an epic Punk ballad that outshines so much more than you could imagine.
Personally my favourite song of the 2000s, I'm proud of these guys :)... - CrimsonShark
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
This song tells you what green day really is. If you hate this song...you hate green dayV 184 Comments
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
His dad did not die in the war... He died of cancer. I watched a documentary of his life.
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.
As a 40 year old who loves - almost exclusively - the era of classic rock that features such giants as Led Zeppelin, Lynrd Skynrd, and CSNY...I've come to discover there's some significant depth of meaning behind much of Green Day's song output. This is one of the very best songs I've heard this side of the new century. The lyrics and melody of the song are as touching as the story behind it...as perfect a synopsis as you will find about the experience of heartbreak and loss. It's as emotionally moving as any song I've heard.
I may have never discovered this song without my daughter, Alyssa. Thanks sweetheart. It's amazing the things we can learn and discover from our own children. - jfausti
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.
Their best song, but they ripped off telephone line by eloV 281 Comments
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
I listen to this song when I am feeling upset, and it never fails to cheer me up at least a littleV 107 Comments
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.
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.
I think it deserves more better place wow
this song rocks I love it by heart
sorry for extra things
Normally this song must be the number 1V 125 Comments
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?
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!
I urge all TRUE Green Day fans to vote for this and other such vintage songs... I mean you're either ignorant or pretty dumb if you are not voting for the old energetic songs!
Best song about whacking it ever createdV 69 Comments
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! - Psykosauron
Number 10?! I think this song is their best only behind American Idiot and Boulevard of Broken Dreams.This song is so simple but so awesome.I especially like the bass riff in the background.V 74 Comments
This song will take you back to the time of your life. One simple guitar and Billie voice that's enough.
Brilliant acoustic song full of emotionV 1 Comment
This song is awesome with a sexy riff. - InsertNameHere
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!
This song is kick ass with its sister song, jaded. The whole feeling of the song from start to finish gets you pumped and then jaded comes and just kicks you in the balls. I also find it quite funny that billy has a lisp in this song as some lyrics he says funny (e.G. : I'm having trouble trying to sthleep. )
"My eyes feel like their gonna bleed"
This is easily my most referenced Green Day lyric
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!
The punkiest green day song. Along with walking contradiction and jaded. - billielricV 42 Comments
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.
When I started listening to Green Day this song used to be my favorite one. I mean come on I can't understand why people just don't love it. I adore it more than anything. The lyrics, the rhythm, the fact that they're all singing (except from Jason but he wasn't an official member of the band back then), the passion, even the length of the song is just impressive and even though usually it's tiring to listen to a 10 minute song, this one is so incredible! It is literally done before you can even understand it began. I remember how I always like melted in the last part, where Billie sings "Here they come marching down the street" I don't even know what's so different about that part but I just love Billie's voice in it. Also this song LIVE is just incredible! It's so energetic and it's so unfair it's so underrated!
Amazing song! Way better than the much overrated Jesus of Suburbia.
This one is really close. It's another ballad, but where it really shines is that Mike and Tre actually get lead vocals in one of five sections of this song. This song does, however, have the best ending of a Green Day song ever made. Concluding a solo with a simple, yet memorable chant, it's a typical, but perfect way to go :). - CrimsonSharkV 34 Comments
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 is my favorite Green Day song in all of history. It has awesome guitar parts in it, pretty simple, but it is still really awesome.
One of my favorites, it's catchy, and has great lyrics and flow. - TheAwesomeBrosVotesV 12 Comments
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
I could NEVER choose a favorite song. Green Day doesn't have a "best song", all of their songs are simply amazing and so different you can't compare them and you can't pick a favorite.
It makes me laugh how most of the songs people vote for are from American Idiot or 21stCB. Because, even though I just said all their songs are amazing and stuff, I believe that neither American Idiot nor 21stCB are their best albums. I bet 80% of the people voting here only know Boulevard of broken dreams..
They only know that one song because they actually play it in the radio.
And basket case because it was so popular.
But does anyone here know songs by Green Day like "Road to Acceptance", "Only of you", "At the library", "Stuart and the ave", etc.?
I bet no one does.
Come on people, check out ALL of their songs before you start voting.
You're not a real fan if you don't know their older songs ...more
Very amazing song I could sing it all dayV 29 Comments
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
This song is also quite anti-America. It's got this opening that really draws you in. It really deserves to be the name of one of their albums. The fact that it's got like 5 verses makes it even better. The last three verses are just really heart pumping and loud. People need to hear more about this song and album.V 23 Comments
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!
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!
This song changed my life at least.V 41 Comments
This is such an AWESOME SONG, should be in TOP 10.
this song really is one green day's masterpieces.
should be at least in top 5
Come on this is so NOT happening...
one of the BEST Green Day songs @ no.11?!
should be like no.5 or 4!
this song is DOWN RIGHT AWESOME! m/
Glad this one is getting more attention it really is an awesome songV 38 Comments
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
This song should have higher positionV 34 Comments
"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.
As an adolescent growing up in the early 90's, Lord knows where I'd be without this song.V 21 Comments
