Most Underrated Green Day Songs

The Contenders: Page 2

21 Restless Heart Syndrome

Not very many of these songs are underrated. Redundant was a single, Macy's Day Parade is on Superhits. This is stuck in the middle of 21CB, but is a purely wonderful song. The only songs on the album that are better are Viva la Gloria and 21 Guns, one is only slightly underrated and the other is the most popular from the album. The silent piano beginning, and at the solo, the song explodes. Perfect.

This song is genius. It's almost like a complete mental breakdown. It seems like a sequel to Boulevard of Broken Dreams in a way. Which makes it even more brilliant!

This is my favorite song on 21st Century Breakdown. Next to another underrated song: Horseshoes and Handgrenades - Boi

22 When It's Time

Should have been in the American Idiot album :/

This is my all time favorite Green Day song💚

23 Horseshoes and Handgrenades

Such a fast pace, energetic song. Love this song.

24 East Jesus Nowhere
25 Stuck with Me

How was this NOT on the list already? This song is extremely underrated! It was WAY overshadowed by Dookie considering some of the singles came out late, but that is NO excuse for this masterpiece.

Insomniac didn't get any attention when it released, every song from Insomniac should be in this list.

26 She

Not many things bug me more than hearing Basket Case without being followed by She. Just a fast energetic song

Short, sweet, catchy chorus fast paced even Billie joe said this is his favorite some he wrote truly and underrated classic

Listen to Green Day right now and this is so sad this song was even released as a single or no video

27 Lady Cobra

Should be at least in the top ten - Boi

28 She's a Rebel
29 Last of the American Girls

I mean, it was a flop single, but there were better songs to close of the 21st Century Breakdown era. Still, underrated song. - ProPanda

30 Pulling Teeth

Not really that underrated, seeing as its on nearly every deep cut/ underrated list. A good song nonetheless

31 Are We the Waiting

My favorite song by them (barring Holiday and WMUWSE) - ProPanda

32 Misery

Listen to this damn song and tell me you don't love it like your own mother

Great one

33 Scattered

Top 5 Green Day song of all time for me... saw them perform this live and it is one of my favorites. Nimrod is my favorite album by Green Day because they created a sentimental version of punk that's still rock. Very cool what they did with this album

34 The Grouch

Best song on Nimrod, deserves more attention, incredibly catchy and all together a great song!

In my top 5 Green Day songs of all time. Hilarious.

35 Prosthetic Head

Great Song. Seems like almost every song from Nimrod and Warning could be on this list.

Definitely one of the best but criminally overlooked songs by Green Day

36 Armatage Shanks

Seems like this song never gets any love. One of the best opening tracks; up there with Burnout and Nice Guys Finish Last

My favorite song of this album. Absolutely love it

37 In the End

This, Holden, Having a Blast, FOD, and their cover of My Generation where my final choices, but this song is so overlooked it sickens me

38 Last Night On Earth

Yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes! So god yet so underrated

I looked for the name of this song for a long time. I'm so happy I found it. - shawnmccaul22

This song is heaven, I love it so much, it holds a lot of emotions...most beautiful love song ever...i mean
My beaten heart belongs to you...i walk for miles 'till I found you <3 can't dislike it

39 Disappearing Boy
40 Who Wrote Holden Caulfield?

Totally underrated and is the best on kerplunk
