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 Christie Road

It should be ILLEGAL that this song isn't number one. How the hell is Boulevard Of Broken Dreams number one? I'll tell you how, because it is basically a pop song, and it had big mainstream success. Real Green Day fans will know that their best songs were their older ones. Okay, Jesus of Suburbia is the best of their new songs... Its just amazing, But Christie Road is the best of their songs full stop. Before you vote for American Idiot and 21 guns, listen to Christie Road; Its pure beauty. Well done Green Day for writing such an epic song. I never tire of hearing it.

I love this song. Why is this all the way down in the 30s and GD's newer stuff dominating the top? I love most, if not all, of their music but their older stuff is definitely the best. Kerplunk is an awesome album!

Beauty of song that puts the era when this song was released into perspective

This song is ultimately based on a teen or childhood story...sounds awesome live.

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.

64 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!

65 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.

66 Before the Lobotomy

Okay, so it's not a fabulous single or anything. However, 65th place is an injustice to Billie Joe's prolific songwriting skills on the track. 21st century Breakdown was an excellent Rock Opera Album, and this song is one of its finest. Green Day fans will recognize this song in the coming years for its longevity, and consistently timeless feeling. I can't wait until it receives credit for the masterpiece it is...

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

67 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

68 Pulling Teeth

Just... Plain... AWESOMENESS!
But how is this 48? It is way better than 2000 light years away, or Burnout... And plus, It has its own story behind it.
One word; Awestastimisticated

I love the backup vocals! Mike Dirnt is a boss at bass and vocals. The drums are also epic!

You don't often hear songs about abusive relationships, and when you do they're usually about a guy abusing a girl and I don't mean to demean their situations, but it's good to know that some people will preach for the other side - cam1922

Though on the surface this song seems as if it is about an abusive relationship, it isn't, and actually has a pretty funny backstory. It's a hilarious song now that I know that it was written about Mike Dirnt having a pillow fight with his then-girlfriend, and him getting a broken arm from it.

69 Poprocks and Coke

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?. ?

70 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.

How is this so far behind its touching beutifal amzing and gets stuck in your in a nice way for most the day after you listen to it:-). - GD4ever

73 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?

74 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.

75 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!

Amazing, beautiful, heartfelt song. If you like boulevard, you will love this.

I sang this song to my girlfriend on our 1 week anniversary (lmao I'm in high school nothing lasts more than a month). She absolutely loved it and it got her into the music I listen to--Green Day, Van Halen, Guns N Roses, Blink...

Awesome song but my favourite song is waiting from the album warning and its not even on this list

77 Too Dumb to Die

It's beast

A combination of new and old green day,with persnal lyrics and awesome instrumentals? And have I mentioned the sick guitar riff? One of the best songs on RR

78 The One I Want
79 Still Breathing

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.

Best song on the revolution radio album. The most joyous green day song in a long time. Without a doubt, this is going to become regarded as one of their best songs ever

I absolutely adore this song.

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
