Best Green Day Songs


The Contenders: Page 5

81 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

82 Castaway

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

83 See the Light

I really don't see how this is ranked so low, awesome guitar work, nice drum line, lyrics, tune EVERYTHING. Should be at LEAST number 50, such a great song

Best song ever let alone by Green Day

Lyrics are awesome, & meaning is so open and relative

84 Governator

Great song.

Epic tune, great singing. My no.4 pick - MaxAttack333

85 Murder City

Did everyone forget about Murder City? Every time I hear this song, it makes me want to sing along. I can't help it, it's that catchy.

With a chorus like Murder City, it should be at least in the top 30. Highly underrated!

This is a totally underrated and un-listened to song...I really enjoy it.

It's a good song defentily worthtop 30 - GD4ever

I thought that Green Day should have ended. And then this song came out. It just goes to show that this band never gets old

Renewed my faith in Green Day. I thought they should have stopped... And then I heard this song. It is absolutely brilliant!

Every time I listen to this song I feel like I wanna dance and sing and everything.. Just love it

Awesome song.. Best song off their new album... Tre rocks and so does Green Day...

88 Deadbeat Holiday

The only great classic from the album waiting. Full of punkiness

Celebrate your own decay!

This song is amazing! Should be ranked a little higher.

Deadbeat Holiday is number 84? Really?! It's one of the best songs off of Warning.

89 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.


A great cover, worthy of top 20 - _Jack_

90 In the End

What? Wait, what? This song is INSANE!

Underrated song

91 Westbound Sign

One of the most underrated songs of their most underrated albums. Come on guys, this song is perfect! I'm not saying that songs like 21 guns and stuff are bad, but this is simply one of the best pop-punk songs of all time! Get voting already

Criminally underrated song. Pure pop-punk. Will always be my favourite.

92 409 In Your Coffeemaker

My all time favourite Green Day song. In fact, it's Billie's favourite song off of "1,039", too.

93 When It's Time

This song is just beautiful. I rarely describe Green Day songs as beautiful, but this one really is. I love the fact that he wrote it for Adrienne when he was only 19, before they were even married, and he didn't record it for almost 20 years. It was just their song for 20 years, and that makes it even more beautiful.

A wonderful song.. Must listen. The time ticks around you- Full of orgasm. A must for lovers for this one really makes your heart move and fly.

What? One of the most soothing songs of Green Day and a 55th spot? People you GOT to vote for this one now!

Top 20 material - _Jack_

94 Last of the American Girls

This was like my anthem after the album came out. AWESOME SONG.

This song is so catchy and it's great. Just because Green Day has some great songs, you should still vote for the good ones! I don't understand why it's rank is so low, share the tunes

Not my favorite, but I'm voting for it because it deserves much higher than this.

Should be above Know Your Enemy - _Jack_

95 Too Much Too Soon

96 Nuclear Family

Awesome vocals and best ever lyrics. The guitar solo is simply great.

Ba ba baby baby it's a blowout! Wow yeah!

Great Song, This need to be in 20°

97 Drama Queen

Beautiful song, this is one example of why Green Day Still has it.

She's my drama queen,

This vote should be higher

98 Jackass

How is this song ranked so low?! One of best songs from Warning, but not even in top 100! - Smitty97000

This is a really underrated song; completely

To know you is to hate you so loving you must be like suicide... best song ever

99 Horseshoes and Handgrenades

There's tremendous energy in this song not present in most other post-2000 Green Day songs, and it doesn't feel contrived, like Jesus of Suburbia or East Jesus Nowhere. The musical context (comes right after Restless Heart Syndrome) gives it extra punch. A real head-banger... I usually prefer 90's Green Day, but this song really does it for me. - crimsonkipper

Browsing the below-100 songs, and I must say, I am surprised to see Horseshoes and Handgrenades this low. It's angry, it's loud, it's fast-paced, and it's all around epic. The track before it, Restless Heart Syndrome (one of my personal favourites), has all this energy locked up inside, and Horseshoes and Handgrenades takes all that energy and slaps you in the face with it. - RestlessHeartGrenade

This is number 6 on my personal list and I cannot believe it isn't at least in the top 20! Vote now, this song is insanely good!

So catchy! great riff, worthy of being in the 30s I mean come on
