Best Green Day Songs


The Contenders: Page 4

61 Jaded

WHAT! This song is the root to the punk rock world! (next to basket case) This is my favorite Green Day song, and favorite punk rock song, and my favorite song PERIOD. This song is even better than last night on earth.

Awesome song... Used to love the brain stew jaded video where this part kicked In was crazy loved the 90's and all the people are voting must be the kids or something where are the old Green Day songs that should be up there

Am I the only person that likes this song better than brain stew?

We all know brain stew was better, but come on! 71st? This was an influential song from insomniac.

62 Dry Ice

Just everything about this song shows how much better the first 2 albums really are, not that the new ones are bad or anything, the early stuffs just on another level, feel sorry for 90% of green day fans that haven't even heard the old songs, because I guarantee if they gave it a chance they would like it 5x more than songs like american idiot.

63 Paper Lanterns

Simply there best song... Simple as that!

This song should be in the top 10.

How is this not top 3?

Great song!

64 Haushinka

I love the whole Jinx/Haushinka mix, I love singing along and I hear this off the album Nimrod It deserves so much more votes since I really understand the meaning

Best Green Day song is Haushinka, hands down, tied with Letterbomb though.

65 Before the Lobotomy

I love this song. I can't believe its not in the top ten. It starts out soft like good riddance, then goes into the typical Green Day rock, then ends the way it began with a little more power behind it.

Come on...! This is an AWESOME song...! What the hell is it doing on the 57th place..?! It should be at least is the top 5...! Listen to it such a great song..! People whats wrong with y'all..? If you hate this song then you are 100% not a Green Day fan nor you have any clue what a real song is...!

This song is my anthem! AMAZING song and stunning lyrics. This is music. love love love

This song is a slower version of american idiot. a much better version of american idiot. one of my favourites - Th3Zm0nst3r

66 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.

Billie Joe is right I don't wanna live in the modern world where all millennials play Pokemon go and talk crap about each other on social media I was born in a weird generation

67 Restless Heart Syndrome

Powerful lyrics. Amazing tune. Beautiful guitar solo. This song is excellent. Who knew Billie Joe could hit such notes. When I first heard it, I spazzed out because I couldn't realize that such perfect music existed. LOVE IT! Another great job by Green Day, as always.

This isn't just Green Day's most under appreciated song but one of the most under appreciated epics in the history of rock music. This is one of Green Day's best ever songs. Years from now, generations of hardcore Green Day fanatics will look back and try to figure out why this Lennon-esque tune was never released as a single. I've never heard tell of a song this big being unreleased or unnoticed ever besides U2's Moment of Surrender.

This song is just amazing... I especially love that part where he goes like "know your enemy" and then BOOM epic guitar solo! This is my favourite song of all time out of any band... It should be higher than 65th place.

An extremely refreshing song... Crisp guitar, beautiful lyrics, simple tune and yet the energy that only Green Day songs can have!

Cool song with nice lyric and good music, I love it

What the hell? This is song is awesome! Just because it wasnt released on an official album it is a bonus song of international superhits along with maria, duhh! Its amazing!

Very surprised this song isn't any higher... Maybe top 30?. ?

69 Ha Ha You're Dead

I want this song up guys...! The lyrics, it's pure hatred! I just love this song. Please vote guys..!

Green Day are absolutely awesome - IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO CHOSE ONE SONG OVER ANOTHER - I'm voting for this one as it isn't as famous as some of the others.

It has a light tune - but if you go by the lyrics, you realize that it is actually full of hatred!

This song should be in top 5. Awesome lyrics, awesome tune... Everything for a good song!

Who DOESN'T want this played at their funeral?

70 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!

71 Missing You

My favorite Green Day song! The drums are so good in this

This song is loved with all of my heart. I even wrote a parody.

"Waking up, feeling naked in my clothes inside the room that vacant"

What The Hell it is'nt in the Top 5?

72 Walking Alone

Personally I've listened this song more than boulevard of broken dreams it attracts me it's my drug songs music make me feel better in sorrow different piece of music created by Green Day they should have released its official video so that it could come to public and I guarantee it will break through the charts... Love this song

Not on list? Great harmonica and beautiful chorus. Put it straight in top 20. No ones gonna vote for it if it's right down the bottom!

This is such an underrated song! It's a shame not many people know it.

What!? How is this 110? This is such an underrated song and it's my favorite from Insomniac.

73 Last Night on Earth

My favorite Green Day song, well one of them! I listen to it all the time! It's the perfect slow song. I also can't stop listening to: Boulevard of Broken Dreams, Wake Me Up When September Ends, Holiday, 21st Century Breakdown, Viva La Gloria, East Jesus Nowhere, and a bunch of others!

One of the best love songs of all time for me. It's just amazing. Just listen to the lyrics, you'll be blown away.

Last Night On Earth is one of the best love songs ever in my opinion. This song makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside when I listen to the lyrics. Its also me and my boyfriends song. This song explains that someone loves some one so much that they will do anything for them. Deserves better rating!

It surely desrves much better rating.
Awesome melody

76 The One I Want
77 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!?

78 Working Class Hero

This song was a cover of the John Lennon version, with a beautiful added touch. Basically, the song describes the problems ( such as discrimination and torture) workers endure in corrupted systems mostly seen in the third world. Except throughout Green Day's version, quotes from Sudanese ppeople are added to address the growing civil war and the poisnous working atmosphere that occurs un Darfur. Green Day not only tries to show people what's going on but sends a message that steps have to be taken, rendering this song a special masterpiece.

This list would be just about perfect if. This song were in the top ten. Honestly I think Green Day's cover was better than Lennon's original. Don't get me wrong, I love John Lennon, but the punkedness (not a word) of green days cover was an excellent touch. Reminded me a little of holiday, but catchier.


79 Scattered

A great song. My favourite on nimrod along with redundant and hitchin a ride. It should be in the top 20. The reason why this is overlooked is because Green Day didn't make it a single. It has a great riff, it's catchy and has some great lyrics. Everything you ask for in a song.

Scattered is so underrated. It's way better than warning or Restless Heart Syndrome.

#3 on my personal list, but I'm voting for it because IT NEEDS TO BE SO MUCH HIGHER! - RestlessHeartGrenade

This song is better than most of the songs rated above it, it feels good to listen its music and the lyrics are so touching how can scattered be 104! 104?!?!? ;?! kidding? listen it you'll vote for it

Just love this song! Why is this ranked at 51? Like jeez. Like I said, I love his song! My favorite on warning!

The beginning guitar rift is tracking amazing! It is impossible how this isn't within the top 25

This is a pretty underrated song. It deserves a way better place than 74.

Every single son on warning is criminally underrated especially this song
