Best Green Day Songs

The Top Ten Best Green Day Songs

1 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.

Amazing! This song will show raw beauty and talent, as well as relating to we have felt once before in our lives.

2 Basket 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

Although, I love the American Idiot album, especially the title track song and Jesus of Suburbia, I just can't forget the more punky edge that Dookie gave the world and this song is surely my favorite song from the album and also my favorite Green Day song. - Skuller

3 Jesus 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.

Truly a masterpiece, one of the best songs ever made hands down.

4 Holiday

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

Although people often describe Holiday as the 'party' (due to its upbeat tempo and delivery) and ' Boulevard of Broken Dreams' the 'hangover', Holiday has (in my opinion) a more sinister purpose than the latter. The songs cheer is meant to express how the band feels as they try to escape from the lies and corrupion of the first world, as they decide to avoid by going on a life-long holiday. However this is not bad, in fact init adds to the significance and wisdom of the song which includes direct mocking of the Nazi regime and the war in Iraq.

5 Wake 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

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.

Okay this song is amazing, it has so many feelings in it. We can feel it in Billie's voice. He even cried while performing this song and that shows how much this songs means to him. For everybody that doesn't know, this song is about his dad that died form cancer when Billie was 10. And the famous story they say but I don't know if it's true is that Billie, at his dad funeral, couldn't handle it and he ran back home crying. His mom came after him and he has locked the door and when his mom asked him to open it, he just said 'wake me up when September ends' (his dad died the 16th of September) but what I know for sure it's that this song is amazing and that it's about Billie's dad who died from cancer. Lots of support to Billie and people who makes jokes about this song, it isn't funny at all. Imagine if you had lost your parent at 10. It isn't funny now huh? STOP THE JOKES.

6 American 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.

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.

This song was Dedicated like Hope a Joyful those been Perspective to Hearing making Folks

It's political and really expresses what the band thinks of america and how they think the media runs the country (in a bad way). Billy also sings "we're not the ones who's meant to follow" and to me that's a way of saying "don't be like everyone else, be yourself".

7 21 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.

It was the first Green Day song I ever heard. It is not my favorite and you'll be surprised why I want it first but I don't know, every time I listen to it I just feel that feeling, this amazing feeling that I can't just describe. The first time I listened to it, I was so amazed by Billie, I fell "in love" with him but with Green Day too and I just started searching many informations about Green Day. I know everything about them now and I even have a fandom account. 21 guns it's a beautiful song and 5 of my friends even though they don't like Green Day a lot, they LOVE this song. Personally, my favorite song is 'Holiday' but this one deserves the first place cause I think it's a beautiful song, and the original version and the Broadway one. It's just so beautiful and this feeling I feel is beautiful too. It brings me back to 21/01/2014, the day I listened to this song and Green Day for the first time. I watched the whole video so amazed. I know I'm not a fan for a long time but you ...more

8 Longview

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!

You're not a bloody punker if you don't like this bloody song, mate

9 Good 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

People may argue that "American idiot" was more known, or "Boulevard of broken dreams" was more iconic or " Jesus of Surburbia" had a deeper message about society, but I believe this short but sweet ballad is the best greenday song. It is the only song of theirs to be listed in A triple J ( Australian radio) all-time best songs list. The pure message of the song describes how people end up facing decisions which are unforeseeable, and they naturally doubt them even though they are the right thing to do most of the time. The song's beauty lies in zBillie's advice- to see these decisions not as blind steps but as an opportunity to become a better person. And he hopes that people have enjoyed themselves in their lives before they are changed. Although this is primarily a neutral and insightful song, a negative heading was added as the song was written about Billie's gf who had to leave him due to unforseeable circumstances, and thus Billie was understandably ...more

10 When 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! - Psykosauron

Wow, there must be a lot of young people commenting and voting on these songs. When I Come Around was an epic 90's anthem. Green Day had a stellar career pre-American Idiot for all of you who don't know. Amazing song that deserves to be much higher!

The Contenders

11 Welcome to Paradise

Catchy riff, great lyrics, Green Day at their best.

Honestly this is their best song. The basic riff, the great bass solo and the pounding drums make this a quintessential green day song

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!

12 Brain Stew

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!

Simple yet bad-ass riff, great lyrics, and arguably one of the heaviest Green Day songs. Deserves to be way higher.


13 Homecoming

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.

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!

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

14 Hitchin' 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 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.

Thought it was about hitchhiking. Turns out it was about alcohol. But other than that, it's pretty cool! - randomguy2005

15 21st 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

THis song was Consumable at Immediately like been Born at the Century at way of Perspective that Communicate by Billie that's been Advice

16 Minority

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

Awesome lyrics... Awesome music.. Nice aggression.. Fell for this song! - ror":{ "message":"(#803)someof

17 Whatsername

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!

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!

Remember whatever
It seems like forever ago
Awesome song man, get it in the top 15 guys please, this is pure punk!

This is the most underrated song of all time. This has to be one of the best songs in the entire world. Why this isn't in the top 3 is beyond me.

18 East Jesus Nowhere

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/

This one is one of this best and it deserves a higher number. come on people, this is not a head of 21 guns. Just listen to the opening to the song and you will realized why it is so great, East Jesus Nowhere rocks!

19 Know 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 should really be higer this is my anthem great words to live by

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

20 Geek 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!?

This song is off the underrated insomniac, and of course a song of American idiot is number one. not that American idiot is a bad album, but geek stink breath and insomniac blow boulevard and American idiot away. My dreams were broken when I heard that song. but geek stink breath is amazing should be much higher

21 She

"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.

Why is this only on 21? This should be on the top 10. Songwriting is great. It's a fusion of confrontational punk writing and poetic style

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.

22 Letterbomb

This is a mind blowing and the most EPIC song off of American idiot. The line" where have all the bastards gone" literally gives me chills all the time. The last concluding lines always makes me cry.

How is this not with in the top 5! It's green day at it's best in my opinion! VOTE

Best song by Green Day in my opinion. Billy Joe also says its his favorite on the album in one of their videos in concert

Love the intro, with the guitar, then the drumming

23 Redundant

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

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.

Has beautiful message and meaning. For a band, it's cool that they make a song like this one. One of my favorite Nimrod songs. - randomguy2005

No I cannot speak I've lost my voice... Because I can't stop singing this song. Not only the best song of nimrod but also their best altogether - wolphert

24 Give Me Novacaine / She's a Rebel

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!

Give Me Novacaine for me is kinda like a metaphor. I mean it feels like he's trying to escape depression or something, you know. And novacaine is like happiness. And that he's suffering the pain of depression. - randomguy2005

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

25 No 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...

The only reason this song is so low is because most people have never listened to it.

I'm so glad to see this so high up! I thought I was a minority for liking it so much.

So Old but Very Beautiful

26 Stuck with Me

This song is awesome! It should be ranked way higher1

My favorite song. It's so underrated. By far one of Green Day's most underrated, if not, most underrated single.

It's just their most energetic, but melodic song. It comes in says what it needs to, and hits the cuts. It stays the same volume the entire song. It has the melancholy ending, which means that he's not alright but has to way to change that so he just lets himself go crazy! GD FOR LIFE!

Bloody hell... it should be higher..

27 St. Jimmy

Great riff, awesome vocals, amazing drum beat, and the bass. After Whatsername, the best deep cut on American Idiot.

the great vocals by BJ the magik of drint and tre cool makes this song evergreen!

Oh my Gods! Like, there must be only a few guys to vote for this? WHERE ARE THE DIE HARD GREEN DAY FANS?! THIS SONG SHOULD so BE IN THE TOP 10! :(... PLEASE VOTE

This song has some awesome drums. It shows how good of a drummer tre is. I also love the guitar. Its pretty fast too. Personally I think that this should be in the top 5

28 Armatage Shanks

Insomniac best album. Armatage Shanks best song. Period.

Come on guys are we really gonna put Green Day's best vocal melody this low on the list

Great song, pure punk

Best Green Day song of all time

29 Warning

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

"Question everything, or shut up and be a victim of authority." How can you NOT like this song? If you're reading this please please please listen to it.

30 Macy'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!

I don't get why Warning was a bust but for me, it is my favorite album. One of my favorite Warning songs is this. This song makes me sad (even cry) especially the lines:

When I was a kid I thought
I wanted all the things that I haven't got
Oh but I learned the hardest way

And this:

Cause I'm thinking about a brand new hope
The one I've ever known
Cause now I know it's all that I've wanted

That is why this song deserves recognition.. - randomguy2005

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!

31 J.A.R.

This song is very touching, and the bass of mike is the reason green day is the perfect trio

Great tribute to mike dirnt's friend jason who passed in a supposed suicide due to a car crash.

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.

This is just a great song in general. Always reminds me of great times and good memories even though the song is rather sad considering it's about there good friend who died in a car crash at the age of 19 or 18. Miss my childhood man

32 Misery

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.

This is one of THE best Green Day songs. Excluding Minority, all of the songs on Warning are criminally under rated.

33 Waiting

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

You gotta be kidding me! I understand not everyone thinking it's the best Green Day song, but 56 is pretty low for a song that's one of their greatest hits!

Listening to it right now. This song, unlike Macy's Day Parade (which makes me cry), makes me feel happy! - randomguy2005

Not their best song, but deserves higher position in the list surely!
Vote up guys! Thanks

34 Viva 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.

It's one of the first few I heard from them. Shame it got lower than before.

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.

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

35 Walking 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. "

What a joke! I would have picked it in my top 10... Best Green Day song... Please vote for it guys.. It deserves a much better position... Green Day rocks

Bloody hell, does NOBODY remember or appreciate "Insomniac? " I'm also shocked that "Bab's Uvula Who" is above this one... It's a great song, but this one, THIS song hooked me on Green Day for life, even through their 'weaker' times. I don't give two flying copulations about anyone who says the band members are like 40-plus burnouts trying to be teenagers, they had it then, and they still have it now. I DO have a belief! Here's to a classic!

One of my fave Insomniac songs, other than Brain Stew (without Jaded), and GSB. The music video is quite funny, especially the humor when the band keeps causing destruction and havoc. - randomguy2005

36 The Static Age

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

Think about these lyrics:
All I want to know what's the god**** pain,
not what's in the medicine
All I want to do is I want to breathe
Batteries not included
What's the latest way a man can die?
Screaming hallelujah!

If you listen to this song this part has so much energy it's insane

This song is amazing, why it is not in top 20!?

Love it, love the chorus

37 F.O.D.

Love this song so much. Should be ranked higher in my opinion. Great rhythm and chorus. AMAZING song.

Awesome song very underrated.

F.O. D if you didn't vote for this song

Great punk lyrics then an explosive power guitar ending. Classic Green Day.

38 Lazy Bones

I love this song, with all my heart

By far the best track off of Dos! And it deserves to be on this list, hopefully somewhat high because this is a kick ass song! Go Green Day! Don't ever stop making music!

Best song of the trilogy, it is so good!

This song was actually good and had a vary different sound. I can really to this song a lot.

39 Nice Guys Finish Last

Great tune, Great Lyrics, fast, should be at top 10

What a song should be number 10 or number 13 amazing guitar bass and drums really good in rock band Green Day get voting for this song peoplke it rocks it may not be the best song that Green Day made but it is still a good song to be up near the top not down at number 45 - mneilan

A good song of nimrod

Nice Guys Finish Last
But for me, Green Day finished first. - randomguy2005

40 Revolution Radio

Why the heck is this song not top ten? The high notes that make up a guitar melody, the chorus, and oh my god that solo! Really the best song in its own album, and still breathing should tremble under this!

Catchy beat, thought out lyrics, guitar riffs, and a political-based topic. Everything that Green Day needs to kick off a new album, and is even better than Bang Bang.

98 does not do this song justice! A place in top five does!

Simply can't stop singing this song, I LOVE IT

41 Bang Bang

A perfect mix of early their 90's punk sound with lyrics reminiscent of American Idiot and a clean 21st Century Breakdown recording, pure Green Day revival in and out!

This song just came out 30 minutes ago by the time I'm writing this, and it's AWESOME.

Vote this up guys this is green day's best comeback song!

Yes, Yes, Yes! Green Day regain mainstream relevancy through awesome, punky as heck track. Vote this up!

42 Who Wrote Holden Caulfield?

The lyrics if you have read the book are very meaningful and the vocal melody is nice.

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

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.

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!

43 X-Kid

Since I first heard this song its became my favourite one. The lyrics and meaning for this song are amazing as well.

Amazing song this needs to be way higher!

For me its their best song, the meaning of it and the lyrics, hooked from the very first moment I listened to it!

The trilogy proved that Green Day aren't gone - they just wanted to have a bit of fun. At the same time I find it difficult to listen to this song without crying - it should be up with WMUWSE and Whatsername!

44 Dirty Rotten Bastards

How can this song be so long it is amazing and should be in the top 10 at least. If this was on American idiot it would be in the position it deserves.

Laugh out loud! It wasn't even on the list. Blah blah blah. Check it out. It's pretty cool. - nikhilchoudhary

I just love the line where it says cut me a line of my best friends ashes

I like the title - MarioBros11

45 The Grouch

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.

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...

I'm gonna play this if I destroyed my dreams, became fat, had a nagging wife, bratty kids, and lousy life. - randomguy2005

46 Having a Blast

I love this song, it should definitely be higher than this! Also, 'Scattered' should be on this list too, and near the top! Awesome songs!

Man, I would walk into school listening to this song on my walkman... *tEARS*

Incredibly emotional song hidden under dark humor. Perhaps THE most underrated of Green Day's stuff.

Amazing song!

47 Blood, 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

This is one heck of a song! It's got so much energy in it. Not sure why it's this low and don't know why Panic Song is ahead of this.

Not my favorite song but deserves better place!

I love it beigining to end best song of warning

48 Still Breathing

Still breathing is SO under rated I can't believe it in my opinion it's the BEST ONE. I blame all the 9 year olds for making this so under rated all voting for jesus of suburbia. WORST RATINGS EVER

The beginning: (1 decibel) I'm like a child looking off in the horizon

This song is seriously underrated. One of the best records the group has put out in years. It is powerful, and hits hard, but has a hopeful aspect that is necessary in a bleak time such as many think we are in.

When I first heard this song, I was surprised to see it hadn't charted, as I had the impression that the song would be a bit. And sure enough, it's currently at number 7 on the alternative charts.

49 American Eulogy: Mass Hysteria / Modern World

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.

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.

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.

Don't think this is their best, but it needs to be higher than this

50 Stuart 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.

Great song, great bass, great drums, great guitar, singing, EVERYTHING! The best Green Day song off of the best Green Day album!

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.
