Everyone is entitled to their opinion, and saying that, I do feel like there is a hardcore negative bias towards Green Day on this site. I accepted a long time ago that Green Day would never release another Dookie or Kerplunk! or even Insomniac again, because they are a band that does what they want. If they want to make a fun pop-punk record, they will. If they want to make an epic conceptual rock album, they will. More importantly, if they want to make a trilogy of albums of varied genres, they will. Cuz they're fucking Green Day. Green Day can't just go back to sounding like snarly punks in their early '20s again because they are well past that in their career. This band gets so much shit, and I've never understood that. They always go above and beyond, and I respect them for that. I want to be as charismatic and energetic of a frontman as Billie Joe is someday, and they will always be one of my favorites. So I understand your opinions, but don't treat them as fact. That's just a douche move.
