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?

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

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