Green Day used to have better lyrics.

I don't even think this is all that relevant anymore

Green Day are much better songwriters. Or they were, circa 2003.

I can't decide if I agree, because I'm not even really a fan of Blink 182 for the most part. But you're right, Green Day jumped the shark fully at some point after American Idiot.

Both bands have shown from their recent output that they blow pretty awfully now, just to be clear.

I have pretty much zero desire to ever listen to blink-182 again apart from maybe a song or two at parties/social gatherings under very rare circumstances. However, I will revisit the Nimrod/Warning/American Idiot trilogy of my own free will occasionally, especially AI.

So, no.

Depends on the record for me. Blink def writes better pop songs. Green Day are the better musicians overall.

I listen to Green Day more these days than I do Blink though. But UNO was awful, and I didn't even bother with dos.

Green Day is better. I'm extremely doubtful I will ever enjoy a Blink song after the self-titled, yet I enjoyed many on Uno, Dos and Tre, and they've been going since '87.

Never was a fan of Green Day. So I would have to agree with this.

Oh, this thread again.

For me, Green Day is a hell of a lot better than Blink, Blink's self-titled is by far their best album and it's still not as good as anything Green Day released from Dookie to American Idiot.

Ehhhh to each his own :P. I love Green Day's old stuff, but S/T is just awesome

How is this "embarrassing"? About as embarrassing as a kid worshiping Have Heart 2 years ago to acting like you do now.

It's a thread to discuss 2 bands, don't see what is embarrassing about it or why you insist on trying so hard.
