Most Underrated Green Day Songs

The Contenders: Page 2

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

22 Stuck With Me 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.

23 Horseshoes and Handgrenades Horseshoes and Handgrenades

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

27 Give Me Novacaine Give Me Novacaine

Although I agree with the majority of the votes what I don't understand is why this song isn't higher on the list. There's something so beautiful and soothing about this song; with the way billies vocals sound accompanied by a steady drumbeat and acoustic guitar, which eventually gives way to a build up. From the surface this song may seem to be about drugs but it think it actually represents intense emotional pain that's so overwhelming you just want it to go numb. Therefore the drugs are partly used as symbolism. This is one of my favorite songs off American Idiot and among the most underrated, despite being from the bands most ambitious album throughout their career.

Another pretty song I think is just under appreciated.

28 Misery Misery

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

29 Lady Cobra Lady Cobra

Should be at least in the top ten - Boi

30 Armatage Shanks 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

31 Pulling Teeth Pulling Teeth

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

32 Last Night On Earth 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

33 Last of the American Girls Last of the American Girls
34 She's a Rebel She's a Rebel
35 Prosthetic Head 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

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
