Worst Green Day Songs


The Top Ten

1 Nightlife Nightlife

What is this? the beat is catchy but billie with autotune? no thanks. It's a laughably bad song in my opinion

As a Green Day fan, what the actual hell is this. Rap, auto tune overdosage, Overall pop song? Green Day went way to out of style here. Dos was a bad album with a few gems, this song just sucked...

I love Green Day, but this song is probably their worst. The effect on Billie's voice is just weird and so are the lyrics. The bass is decent, but that's about it.

This song/rap/speech thing makes me want to barf. - PerpendicularSealeo6

2 Take Back Take Back

What this is my favorite Green Day song

This song is great. The rocking bass line, cool drums, fun lyrics and awesome guitar riffs make for a fantastic song; possibly the best of Nimrod. Oh wait, This isn't Hitchin' A Ride? Oh Take Back. Yeah, this song sucks. - Mr_Awesome

I bet this is 2 because all the fake Green Day fans don't understands TRUE punk rock. They only know poppy Green Day songs. - Gruunge

True - I never heard this song before, but it IS proper punk, so even if it wouldn't make my top 10, I appreciate your point - Kaypi

What people it's a punk song. It's something a bit different then the usual green day, which makes this song great!

3 Youngblood Youngblood

I like the song, but I started thinking about lyrics and realised that this makes no sense! Completely agree with most of the other comments, except one - sometimes, good music has simple guitar and drum parts; what about 21 Guns? That has one of the easiest drum parts in a song I've ever heard and it's still amazing! - Kaypi

I personally do like this song, but I will admit that it was the weakest of what was a fantastic album. The lyrics were a little sloppy at times and it takes a little too much from "She's a Rebel". Needless to say, that song was much better.

How do you shoot the moon into the sun?

Yeah I didn't really like this song, the lyrics aren't good and the gitaurs and drums are simple, plus this song has a horrible lyric "I want to hold you like a gun" I mean what, Who ever says that? Overall this song is just hard to listen to. Worst song from their latest album

4 F*** Time

Just what even is this

Oh baby baby this is the worst Green Day song

YOU can tell by the title its bad

God awful song. Also, why is Take Back at number 2. - AliciaMae

5 Warning

I love this song just like every other Green Day song that isn't on this list but I love this song all of you guys are crazy if you don't like this song. WOW

Highly underrated song not really terrible.

Crap! I voted for Warning on accident. I meant to cast one in for Youngblood. =(

Warning is an awesome song!

6 Kill the DJ

Literal dog sh

Why? This is my favourite Green Day song! - Kaypi

Decent song, poor lyrics, but catchy - Revrad

Worst lyrics ever writen by Billie...

7 Tight Wad Hill

This song is awesome so is the whole album - Sabbath

What is it second in this list? It's one of their best songs.

It's not one of their best songs but it is still a decent song, this Take Back and Platypus are over hated. Nightlife and Last Ride In are the worst


8 Dominated Love Slave

This song is for fun. Don't take it too seriously haha

It's a joke song it doesn't count

Warning is good, Maria is okay, Armatage is good, Little Boy Named Train is pretty good. This sucks though! Tre Cool is bad at singing! Don't let him sing again Green Day! PLEASE! He's good at drumming, so he should be drumming!

Sounds like a cowboy themed green day song. Its below average in my opinion.

9 Lady Cobra
10 All by Myself

I was obama's elf

This is why we made Tre a drummer

Tré's sex songs are lit! Don't diss them! - Kaypi

Funny but kinda sucks


The Newcomers

? Baby Eyes
? Fire, Ready, Aim

The Contenders

11 Do Da Da

This is great! Soulful and awesome!

A bunch of gibberish, terrible and just sucky.

12 Troublemaker

How on Earth are songs like Tightwad Hill in the top 10 worst songs and this isn’t. This is pretty much the only Green Day song that I actively dislike and that’s coming from a HUGE fan

How is nobody voting for this?!?!? WORST LYRICS I've EVER HEARD IN MY LIFE!

In single words is the biggest bull in all around the world, Green Day is awfull

A friend of mine likes this song his name is rigir he introduced me into this

13 Christian's Inferno

Woah ooh Chirstian's inferno. to be honest kinda band and repetitive. but it's relatively solid.

14 Maria

My 2nd favorite green day song is on here? I give up faith in humanity.

Maria is better than pretty much every song on this list, and I think it's actually a really good song. Strange to see it so high up.

This is awesome!

ARE YOU SERIOUS! Maria is a Great Song

15 Wow! That's Loud

Come on its not a bad song pretty good actually

This whole album for me was a flop. Uno was good, not brilliant but good, Tre was OK but there are very few songs on here I would consider listening too - Danielsun182

I actually like this song. Yes, I do. Sue me. - Tristan1975R5

16 Father of All...

I’m a huge fan of Green Day, but this song blows. Same thing without Fire, Ready, Aim. - RadioHead03

17 Lazy Bones

My only complaint with this song is how it has the same intro as 99 revolutions - Revrad

18 Ashley
19 21 Guns

Why is it on here? this is green day's best song!

This song sucks a lot more than Look What You Made Me Do.

I like this song but its just the most overrated green day song to be honest.

I hate this song. It's 3 minutes too long, it's repetitive, it's boring, it's a momentum killer, it DRAGS, and it sounds AWFUL. I love Green Day, but this is one of their lowest lows.

20 Armatage Shanks

Crap. I clicked vote by accident. This is in the top three for this album (the other two are Walking Contradiction and Panic Song)

How is this on the list? This song is badass! - FailedStunt78

This is really one of Green Day's purest songs from the 90s it shouldn't be here - Revrad

Okay, I actually jam out to this song lol

21 Amy
22 King for a Day

What?!?! this is arguably green day's most fun and entertaining songs to watch them preform live - Revrad

23 A Little Boy Named Train
24 Last Ride In

Yeah this is the kind of music Tom delonge would have in an elevator if he owned a hotel franchise - Revrad

Lol! He does like this kind of music, he always puts this type in his videos! This is funny!

More like an elevator song

Why is this song there? It's one of their best.

Good elevator music lol - ONHOLIDAY

25 Wake Me Up When September Ends

Why is this on the list? No, not today satan

This shouldn't be here. - Tristan1975R5

This song is about Billie Joe father's death.So please don't vote for this song - Kartman

If you hate this song than you are an evil person. its about billies dad death and hating a song about death is mean. - Th3Zm0nst3r

26 X-Kid

What's wrong with this song? Seriously? It's a great meaningful song with catchy riffs. My favourite from the trilogy. - Tristan1975R5

27 Jesus of Suburbia

Eh a lot of this list is rubbish, this song is good, despite it being number one on my top 10 Most Overplayed Green Day Songs list. A lot of these songs aren't really bad, just overplayed or underrated, some overrated.

A big " F.O.D" for those who voted this

I hate it because blashpemy

This guy must be on drugs because its amazing

28 Extraordinary Girl

I agree with the person that said this prevented letterbomb from getting heard - Revrad

The whole Arabic-something feel to me is quite annoying. EVERY OTHER SONG ON THE ALBUM IS TOP NOTCH but I can't bring myself to like this :/

So repetitive it hurts

I will forever hate this song because it’s sheets poor lyrical content and repetitive riffs overshadow what is in my opinion the 3rd greatest Green Day song in “Letterbomb”. Not to mention it is the worst song on American idiot and the thing that made American idiot fall short of perfection. Honestly I think I would have rather had “Too much too soon” as the song before letterbomb because that was the best hidden track by far. And finally, what is with that 35 second Arabian themed intro. The only good song with Arabian style guitars is “Come Out And Play” by the offspring

29 Know Your Enemy

This song is too repulsive and the lyrics are annoying

This song literally has no substance to it. All it is, is the same repetitive melody... Over and over and over again. I wouldn't mind it if it wasn't so boring. Green Day needs to learn: they are not the Ramones, who were actually good at making 2 minute repetitive punk songs.

Also, please do realize-Green Day are my favorite band of all-time, I just dislike this song... A lot... - seankraus99

Voters are the enemy
Against Bill, Mike and Tré
Well voters are the enemy

This song is so amazing
Why are you all hating
When this song is so amazing

I don't understand this list
It's just a pile of ****
If it thinks that this song is thirty-fifth - Kaypi

This list is my enemy..owe owe now REMOVE THIS SONG ON THE LIST owe owe now REMOVE THIS SONG ON THE LIST owe owe now REMOVE THIS SONG LIST.

30 American Idiot

Why? This was the song that got me hooked on Green Day! - Kaypi

31 Restless Heart Syndrome

HOW?!? How in the hell and why in the hell is this song on this list? - RestlessHeartGrenade

This song is a masterpiece I wish this was more popular

One of best for guitar riffs its good

Sounds like boulevard of broken dreams. - Th3Zm0nst3r

32 Platypus (I Hate You)

This is my wedding song.

I love this song its amazing

This song is my anger song

Fast and catchy. Why not?

33 Last of the American Girls
34 Fell for You

I very much disliked this song, it's the only Green Day song I really don't like. It's pandering garbage. Green Day is my favourite band, but this song is just awful.

35 Carpe Diem

Didn't like it

Not that good. Sounds a lot like Before the Lobotomy(which is better). Also sounds like any other ¡Uno! song. Never one of my favorites.

36 D.U.I.

This song needs to be wiped from green day's history, it's moral is terrible, and lyrics are dull!

Where is the link to this song I'm too drunk to find it.

Yes because every other Green Day song has an amazing message to it...
Controversy is their entire brand!
Geek Stink Breath, Brain Stew, Jaded, pretty much the entirety of Insomnia, while talking about how drugs are bad, still has morals that are pretty bad.

37 Dirty Rotten Bastards

Who idiot put this here? It's a masterpiece! @

38 F.O.D.

Dookie is THE most important album of the pop punk music. There are technically no flaws and the music is very good!

Why is this on the list? Its one of if not the best non-single green day songs from dookie.

Haters can F.O.D

39 Makeout Party
40 Like a Rat Does Cheese
41 Loss of Control - Uno

This song is the song from the trilogy that I genuinely hate. - Tristan1975R5

42 Drama Queen

This song is really bad it deserves to be higher on this list

It Green Day talking about a period WHY!?

43 Oh Love

One of there best! - SDGVsdfgvsdvgsdfgv

It's the best song of the whole trilogy - Th3Zm0nst3r

This was one of their better new songs

Billie's voice is annoying and disgusting in this song

44 Walk Away

Ok, who added this? - Tristan1975R5

45 Rest

What's so bad about this

How is this bad?

46 Good Riddance (Time of Your Life)


Another song that doesn't belong on here, I know it's overplayed but at least it wasn't as bad as the entirety of Dos. Dos in my opinion was their worst album. However this song isn't bad for this list in my eyes.

Their 3rd best song - AliciaMae

Yeah. Their second best song, listened to by 75 million people at once in America's biggest 90's T.V finale. What idiots vote here?

47 My Generation

What's wrong. It's just a punk version of The Who's; My Generation

48 Basket Case

Not bad, but highly overrated - AliciaMae

This list is such rubbish! You're putting BASKET CASE, LONGVIEW, and JESUS OF SUBURBIA here? What is wrong with you people?!?!?! - RestlessHeartGrenade

This is a good song - Rorywilbren

Your clearly drunk I love it
