American Idiot is great but everything since, I dig it for like a week and get totally sick of it. I didn't even feel like checking out the last two after Uno. I don't think they can make a record again that I'll truly love. Their sound is just very tired at this point. You HAVE to do more than just punk chords. Tre is pretty much the most boring drummer out there right now. Make some memorable bass lines again. I'd love for them to prove me wrong and make something great though. Definitely not rooting against them or anything.
I like what you said about Tre. The first songs I played on the drums were Green Day. That was 15 years ago. As an adept drummer, I can honestly tell you that most of his playing is almost embarrassingly easy. Tre is a good drummer, and he's probably not allowed to get too complex within the constraints of Green Day, but he makes Travis Barker look like a God behind the kit.
