Green Day blends unique sounds with high-octane guitar riffs and drum beats. Tre Cool and Mike Dirnt are two of the best at their instruments, and Billy Joe Armstrong lends his vocals in a fantastic blend. Their lyrics started simplistic, but over time grew to be the deepest and most though-provoking in the business. With songs like Jesus of Suburbia, Holiday, Boulevard of Broken Dreams, and Letterbomb, American Idiot proves to be their best album. The rock opera stands apart from even 21st Century Breakdown as the most relevant and patronizing albums of the day. Dookie has some amazing singles as well, from Basket Case and Longview to Welcome to Paradise and When I Come Around. The aforementioned 21st Century Breakdown has some great tracks as their third-best, notably 21 Guns and Peacemaker. Other albums have great songs as well, like Brain Stew and Jaded from Insomniac, Hitchin a Ride and Time of Your life from Nimrod, and Church on Sunday and Misery on Warning. Green Day stands ...more
Green day, what else is there to say? There have been around here for ever and they are still creating the best music out there to date, their old music is great, and so is the new album. They have been a favorite of mine for such a long time, And I'm sure it's the same way for many other people. Not to mention they can also pull off the slow-ish songs too. (Aka September ends, beginning to viva la gloria etc. )
COME ON! Punk's Not Dead because of this band! I can't decide if Green Day or Linkin Park is greater but I can tell that Green Day is certainly better than the ones on No. 2, 3 and 4. What the hell? Do you even think before you vote?
Just listen to boulevard of broken dreams, 21 Guns, Wake me up when September ends, American Idiot, Longview and Basket Case, and then dare tell me that all these bands are better than Green Day. Please, you are misleading the young listeners...
Well you guys are wrong to vote Green Day 5th. They should be 1st or second. Why is three days grace up so far? Remember guys the best bands are supposed to go on the top. The list should go as follows: Green Day, Linkin Park, Breaking Benjamin, Muse, My Chemical Romance, Avenged Sevenfold, System Of A Down, Three Days Grace, Rise Against, and Foo Fighters
First, I should say, they are not punk. But that's probably a good thing. Punk is so simple and more of a fashion statement than a genre, that for Green Day to be categorized as such, would be a crime. They are way too complex to be labeled as punk. Billie Joe's early guitar work was pure punk. He has evolved and they are even better now.
Jesus of Suburbia is such a good song. American Idiot is probably the best rock album ever so many good hits-wake me up when september ends, American idiot, boulevard of broken dreams, jesus of suburbia and 21st century breakdown is great too
Most talented band ever. Billie Joe's vocals are brilliant live and on the recordings. They all have amazing energy and are great musicians. They are incredible live performers and perform for hours. I never get tired of listening to them.
Green Day will never get old. They are my favorite band of all times. They will live on forever in the world. Their songs connect with all who listens to them. I hope that they never change their style.
green day number 1... how did avenged sevenfold get up there
it should be
my chemical romance
What is avenged sevenfold? Green Day came out with two of the best albums of the 21st century (American idiot and 21st century breakdown), and their punkier songs are very good too. Warning marks the most drastic musical transition in any bands career.
Come on. Green Day is the best band ever. The lyrics has meanings. There are just 4 people in this band and they even do not edit their voices. Long live Green Day.
Green Day is hands down the greatest modern band ever and will go down as legends, Foo Fighters comes at a close second though! Green Day FOREVER
Green Day is not only a awesome rock band, they're real and totally original. Listen to Dookie, Dos, and American idiot and tell me Linkin Park should be number one.
Out of the ones on this list, I prefer Green Day, although, had Nickelback been on here also I would have voted for them as they are my favorite band, either way, gotta love Boulevard of Broken Dreams.
All the above bands suck. However I'm not sure if you cam call Green Day modern because they started out in 1986 and others in thus list started like decades later. Green Day has also sold 80 million + album, which is many times more than any band on this list.
Green Day is amazing. Forever my favorite band, come on, they deserve the number one spot. Or at least top three. They are probably one of the most talented bands ever to come.
With raw power rock and roll, millions of fans, and a lot of singles, this band is sure to stay for decades.
Green Day is awesome. There songs have a meaning from the core and there tunes and sequence of the music and sounds are fabulous. Thumbs up for Green Day!
Green Day are an incredible band. They are perhaps comparable or even better than Linkin Park.
Green Day brought back punk in the 90s, and they're still here bringing great music in the 21st century. Modern rock wouldn't be the same without them
I must wonder why this band is not No. 1. The Top 3 should have Green Day, Deftones, and Weezer.
Easily the best Punk Rock band ever! I love this band especially for Billie Joe Armstrong's lyrics, his voice and the energy they conjure up with their majestic sound from the drums!
The absolute standout of this generation and very dominant in the 90s as well! Its honestly a competition for second...
Green Day is awesome! I have been listening to them for a year or two now and they are one of my favorite bands ever!
Better than Linkin Park of course, they have been around for long time, perfect voice, mellow but a pick me up theme that keeps you going and honestly no one can't beat Green Day
