Top 10 Reasons Why Green Day and Linkin Park are Better Then Papa Roach and Fall Out Boy

The Top Ten

1 Linkin Park and Green Day put a lot more effort into their songs

You know that this list is completely opinion-based? I love Linkin Park and Papa Roach both a lot, but seriously this list is just pathetic... - Tijsprimo

We don't know that, we're not there. - Fall_Out_Nikki

These lists need to die. - ProPanda

Whenever it's some of their older or newer work more effort is put into their songs.
Modern LP song: Guilty All The Same
Old LP Song: In The End
Modern Green Day song: Still Breathing
Old Green Day song: When I Come Around
Those four songs have more effort then anything by Sell-Out Boy and Papa Roach combined!

2 Green Day and Linkin Park write about issues and problems that need to be solved, Fall Out Boy and Papa Roach write about being the top 40
3 Linkin Park and Green Day sound better

Facts don’t care about your feelings

Their sound is a million times better!

That depends on the person - Fall_Out_Nikki

I agree but Fall Out Boy is also good but not as good as Linkin Park or Green Day.Don't know about Papa Roach though.-LitSavage

4 Fall Out Boy makes mediocre emo songs that are only popular for a few weeks, Linkin Park makes creative inspiring songs that are popular for months

Yeah self explanatory.

5 Linkin Park and Green Day write their own lyrics. Fall Out Boy doesn't and neither does Papa Roach.

Actually no, Pete Wentz writes FOB's lyrics - Fall_Out_Nikki

I know Pete Wentz of Fall Out Boy write their own lyrics. I don't know about Papa Roach, though.

6 Linkin Park and Green Day worked hard to get their fame. Fall Out Boy and Papa Roach didn't.

By that logic any band could have a bunch of hits purely by being sellouts. I am not a fan of the bands you are bashing but I don’t think it is true that they did not have to work hard for their success. Also I think you should make a distinction between Green Day in the hall of fame and Linkin Park not in the hall of fame but likely will be once they are eligible.

Linkin Park earned being in the Rock N' Roll Hall of Fame same with GD, Fob didn't have to work hard, they had to sell out hard to get their fame, Papa Roach sold out as well to get their fame.

7 Chester Bennington & Billie Joe Armstrong are better singers than Patrick Stump & Jacoby Shaddix

I personally like the way Patrick Stump sounds better - Fall_Out_Nikki

They aren't the best singers of all time but granted their still better singers in comparison.

8 Green Day and Linkin Park write better lyrics

Actually, there are some weird FOB lyrics but some really good as well like "Got a few more fake friends and it's getting hard to know what's real" - Fall_Out_Nikki

"Sometimes before it gets better, the darkness gets bigger. The person that you'd take a bullet for is behind the trigger" - Fall_Out_Nikki

LP Lyrics: "I've become so numb I can't feel you there. I've become so tired, so much aware. By becoming this all I want to do is be more like me and be less like you."
GD Lyrics: "I walk alone, I walk alone, I walk, I walk a-, My shadow's the only one that walks beside me. My shallow heart's the only thing that's beating. Sometimes I wish someone out there will find me. 'Til then I walk alone."
FOB lyrics: "You will remember me for centuries..."
Papa Roach lyrics: "THIS IS MY LAST RESORT! NO SUFFOCATION, NO BREATHING, DON'T GIVE A *Censored* if I cut my arm bleeding! "
You tell me which lyrics are better.

9 Green Day and Linkin Park have more successful songs

That doesn't make anyone better to be honest - Fall_Out_Nikki

Successful LP songs: Too many to count.
Successful GD songs: Too many to count.
Successful Papa Roach songs: Last Resort
Successful FOB songs: Centuries, Th4nks F0r the m3mor3ies.
