This is boring. Half the time I'm hearing mediocre versions of their old songs, the other half they're trying too hard to find a new sound. They need to spend more time writing what they like and less time churning out triple albums that span 3 different genres.

And who are you to say that Uno isn't what Billie Joe wants to write? You're almost contradicting yourself, complaining about a band not writing songs that you like. Green Day's writing exactly what they want to.

I feel ya. I just won't dismiss an album because of a couple duds. I also won't call an album great.
I think green day could have made 1 album that woulda been killer with all these songs, but the concept it interesting...i guess.

Not bad. Def better then Uno!

Wow. I really like this and I hated Uno!.

This song is so good!

not sure I like this.

This may be the best song theyve released in 10 years.

plenty? maybe 2-3 off the last album... but I mean I don't think there's one bad (as in generally disliked) song on self titled, TOYPAJI, or enema.

So Green Day is irrelevant, and Blink never released a bad song? Get a CT scan.

This point is invalid. I doubt Green Day sees any of these comments on this site, so not everyone "losses their asses to criticize them" just because people don't like it on this site.

Thanks TDLyon.

Been a fan since 1994 so I have heard it all. Stray Heart sounds like a mainstream hit. I can picture it on the radio 20 years from now. I think the real issue is that 99% of people on the site love Blink-182 more. They would never dare say that Blink put out a bad song.

But blink are like the innovators of pop-punk, man! All my favorite bros in pop-punk bands wouldn't be around if it weren't for blink, dude! I couldn't imagine the world without The Wonder Years. And all the bands I go out and see at local shows always get smashed and play the obligatory cover of Dammit, so that's gotta mean something, right?

Green Day were totally lame when they put out those "rock opera" albums... eww man. Who wants to hear about politics in music? And worse yet, those sappy ballad songs. Lame. I want some heavy hitting pop-punk with some meaningful lyrics about how me and my friends go down together!
