Best Green Day SongsRockerboy
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.
I am a 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
Its just amazing
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.
Although long, I love its lyrics and the sound in general
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
Such a great song, cannot wake up without listening to it!
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.
Beautiful emotional songs
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 is a legendary song by Green Day!
This song was Dedicated like Hope a Joyful those been Perspective to Hearing making Folks
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.
Happy (late) 10th birthday!
Yesterday (9th October) this song became 10 years old being released 9th October 2009. Wow! A decade ago. Billie Joe would have been 37!
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!
No one dislikes this song and if you do you need mental help
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
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
Glad it's in the top 10 - PatrickStar3
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!
Very catchy, fun to sing along to.
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.
WHAT THE HECK!? THIS IS THE GREATEST PUNK SONG OF ALL TIME! WHAT'S IT DOING IN 16TH!?
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.
Massively underrated - Ansawie
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!
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
Legitimately the best song green day has produced.
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.
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 like a lot of songs but this is my favourite one.
Brat geek stink breath dry ice fod
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 song was Consumable at Immediately like been Born at the Century at way of Perspective that Communicate by Billie that's been Advice
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
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!
It seems like forever ago
Awesome song man, get it in the top 15 guys please, this is pure punk!
I prefer the one that not the musical
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/
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 first seem like a chant song but now it's so powerful to me
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
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.
Meth. It is a reference to meth/speed. Kinda disgusting that the music video shows a rotten tooth being pulled out. With blood. But this song is pretty cool and fast-tempoed. - randomguy2005
Best Green Day song in my opinion, but then again it’s my opinion not the whole worlds. - March22KillsMeStill
"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!
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
"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 21 Guns above this? That's ridiculous.
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
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
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
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.
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
They're just straight up my favorite songs
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!
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
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..
Best Green Day song of all time
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
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
One of the best riffs I ever heard and the vocals are flawless.
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
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
To convey so much beauty and depth with such a simple straight forward melody is breathtaking.It gives me chills every time I hear it. This is my #1. It should have been at least in the top 3!
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
Great song! Doesn't belong all the way down here
I DEFINETLY AGREE WITH YOU MY FRIEND
THE GREATEST SONG OF GREEN DAY MUST HAVE A POSITION IN AT LEAST TOP 10
the great vocals by BJ the magik of drint and tre cool makes this song evergreen!
Absolute classic. True punk rock song of the mid 2000's, it deserves to be higher
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
One of there best songs should be top ten
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.
Best song from Warning!
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
Beautiful song, one of the best from 21st, deserves to be higher!
Should in top 3
Should be top 5
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
"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
Deserves to be higher
Love it, love the chorus
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?
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!?
My friend broke up with her boyfriend with this song...
Best lyrics and drop ever
Love this song so much. Should be ranked higher in my opinion. Great rhythm and chorus. AMAZING song.
Awesome song very underrated.
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!
I love this song, with all my heart
This song was actually good and had a vary different sound. I can really to this song a lot.
It might be a new song but it's better than other songs higher in this list.
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
Nice Guys Finish Last
But for me, Green Day finished first. - randomguy2005
A good song of nimrod
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!
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!
Really, guys? 50? Billie Joe said it himself that it is HIS favorite song in Kerplunk! That's one of the earliest albums, and he says it still holds up to today's standards. Turned off by how "old" the song is? Listen to the lyrics, and get amazed by this "Catcher in the Rye" inspired masterpiece.
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!
I like the title - MarioBros11
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
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.
I'm gonna play this if I destroyed my dreams, became fat, had a nagging wife, bratty kids, and lousy life. - randomguy2005
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 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.
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
Middle to end: (200 decibels) 'CAUSE I'M STILL BREATHING 'CAUSE I'M STILL BREATHING ON MY OWN!
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.
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.
THIS SONG IS AWESOME!
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.
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
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.
This at least deserves a spot in the top 20. It is one of Green Day's most thought-provoking songs that has many hidden lyrics in it. I love their music and this song is one of the best reflections on their music, their style, and their work. Shame to see it is not at least in the top 20.
"RUNAWAY! FROM THE RIVER TO THE STREAM! And find yourself with your face in the gutter. YOU'RE STRAY FROM THE SALVATION ARMY! THERE IS NO PLACE LIKE HOME... When you've got no place to go. "
This is the song I was able to listen to for 8 hour straight going to lake tahoe, of course it's the best song ever and deserves to be in the top 10 ;D
This is extremely underrated
