Most Underrated Green Day Songs

The Top TenXW

1Whatsername

This song is absolutely amazing; it's so homesickness and powerful at the same time. In my opinion one of the best song that Green Day ever write.

2Macy's Day Parade

This definitely takes the cake. It's a great song with acoustic elements and it's on the sad side, but it still is amazing. Tremendously underrated single.

My favourite Green Day song of all time. One of the first songs that ever made me cry.

3Redundant

Best song on Nimrod in my opinion, and is a beautiful telling of relationships nowadays, there sad downfalls, and how they're the same thing over and over again. For sure deserves more attention!

This is epic. The song is a 9 minute combination of wonderful chords and acts as the last part of the album (I feel Whatsername is the epilogue, and American Idiot is the prologue). It gives a Christmas night setting with violence, tragedy, comedy, hatred, jealousy, insanity, boredom and a sense of coming clean! (Violence/tragedy - Death of St Jimmy, Comedy - East 12th Street, Boredom/Hatred - Nobody Likes You, Jealousy - Rock And Roll Girlfriend, Insanity/Coming Clean - We're Coming Home Again in that order)
It's mind blowing that Billie Joe, as an underrated songwriter was able to incorporate main elements of punk into a pop/punk mainstream epic song!

Brilliant, absolutely brilliant stuff from Green Day. Its everything that they do best, in a brilliant, compressed package.

I love this song. So many changes

This song is so emotional and powerful, yet it is so overlooked by many people who don't realize that it is one of Green Day's greatest songs. The lyrics and message are so strong in this song. Personally, I think that this is also one of Green Day's saddest songs.

Great inro and meaningful lyrics!

17Panic Song

So underrated, yet I think it's one of their best songs. The instrumental intro can be boring, but once Billie starts singing, it's amazing.

In my opinion better than geek stink breath or jaded, the intro can be boring, but from the minute 1:58 it turns a master piece from insomniac

18She

Not many things bug me more than hearing Basket Case without being followed by She. Just a fast energetic song

Short, sweet, catchy chorus fast paced even Billie joe said this is his favorite some he wrote truly and underrated classic

Listen to Green Day right now and this is so sad this song was even released as a single or no video

19East Jesus Nowhere
20Stuck With Me

How was this NOT on the list already? This song is extremely underrated! It was WAY overshadowed by Dookie considering some of the singles came out late, but that is NO excuse for this masterpiece.
