How in the world are GD sellouts? Aside from that, fantastic list. Probably the one that aligns the best with my favorites.

American Idiot, the Musical? Rock Band: Green Day? Rhapsody commercials?

Plus, the fact their music has lost any edge it once had.

Haha I love how Sleeping At Last eluded your favourite songs list. I feel the same. Storyboards as a whole is probably the greatest collection of songs I've heard in years. However, when it comes to picking one as a favourite, I'm left scratching my head...

I always seem to find a few gems in your list so will definitely have to give Cassino and The Damnwells a listen.
