Don't write their own music, have crass lyrics that wouldn't be too out of place in a bad Carry On film & their music is banal pop with no flavour. The worst group currently out there, simply because they are emblematic of everything wrong with pop music these days. - Mrveteran

I heard that one of the members was arrested for taking drugs. - Croy987

Come on. I admit they're overrated. But bad, no. Yes. they've ripped off some songs. But there are some songs which aren't ripped off. You can call them overrated but not bad. Their songs never bored you (if you liked them). And you suddenly become a hater of LZ when you heard they ripped off some songs. so the songs you used to listen weren't worthy? The time when you used to enjoy their songs are all in vain? - zxm

Green Day's a tad overrated but they aren't bad by any means. - BoredJeff02

Billie Joe Armstrong IS American Idiot. The irony of his own stupidity completely escapes him.

Honestly, I think Green Day's kinda underrate. At least albums like 21st Century Breakdown and Insomniac are - ProPanda

Really?! AC/DC?! I'm not into rock of any kind but my mum loves this band. She used to keep switching on songs from this band while driving (the car has a stereo) and I actually kind of enjoyed the music.
