iTunes Review

Bratty, snide, and brash but rarely sophomoric, Green Day's major label debut is an explosion of punk-pop pleasure. Three chords haven't sounded this good since the Ramones. Green Day's world is one of suburban revolution, where dad is covered in tats and mom burns the toast with a blowtorch. They've found the promise of the American Dream a joke, but don't know who's to blame. Songs like "Chump," "Long View," and "Emenius Sleeping" point the finger randomly, including back at themselves. Billie Joe Armstrong's adenoidal singing is ideally suited to these songs. With his faux British accent, he comes off as justifiably petulant. Dookie helped revived punk music, wrapping it in great pop songs like "Basket Case" and "When I Come Around," somehow making furious dissatisfaction fun again.

This Album Shouldn't Be Kept All By Itself!

Great CD. It takes the fusion of pop and punk and creates a great sound. Sure, I said "pop", but all you narrowminded people out there who say that punk ABSOLUTELY CANNOT mix with pop, it's time to broaden your horizon. Green Day is great, always has been, despite what you say. And for all of you who think that everyone who listens to these guys are girls who died their hair black, walk around in miniskirts and Green Day tees, and call themselves punk... when's the last time you had a reality check? Not everyone listens to a certain type of music just because they are "labeled" with a certain group. For instance: hello, me! I'm blonde, like talking on the phone, occasionally wear pink (PINK ISN'T JUST FOR GIRLY-GIRLS!), and still LOVE these guys. And I'm not just some pre-teen wannabe, either. Besides, it takes a poser to know one. To all you people who have something against Green Day now, just because some parents know who they are: shut the **** up! Honestly! All great bands have appealed to different eras! For instance: one of my favorite bands, Motley Crue. Uh-huh, you heard me, 80's music. And I wasn't even born back then! Yeah, I'm a 12 year old! So what!?!?! What are you gonna do, sue me? Motley Crue has appealed to not only punks back then, but to punks today. And they don't only appeal to punks, just like Green Day. Props to all the "preps" who broadened their minds and listened to something other than the Black Eyed Peas! Like I said, "labels" are fake, and whoever created them has a spot reserved for them in the deepest circle of... you know where. *cough* And Green Day did not sell out. Like I said, there is no problem with people from other generations enjoying their music. And I'm not a "poser" for liking AMERICAN IDIOT. I know that Tre Cool wasn't the original drummer and that they used to be called Sweet Children. I also know that Dirnt isn't Mike's last name. And it's pretty obvious that Tre Cool isn't Tre's real name (*cough* Frank Edwin Wright, III *cough*). So don't be so judgemental and don't just jump to conclusions. We aren't the ones with problems; you are. Are you like me, who not only listens to rock and alt., but also people like Kelly Clarkson, and (dare I say it) Eminem? I don't listen to music because of the way the band looks. I listen to it for the music. Isn't that what music's about? So all you out there who call us posers, go away and shut up. Don't jump down our throats because we like to be a part of the "Minorirty" and "don't need your authority"... Anyway, this is a great CD. From the extremely underrated opening song "Burnout", to the hilarious hidden track "All By Myself", and everything in between, Green Day has made an all-around great CD. And the fact that these guys aren't too hard on the eyes makes it even better (lol). They've done an outstanding job. All I can say is, great job guys! I'm"Having A Blast" listening to this! Buy this album, it shouldn't be kept all by itself! P.S. To all Green Day fans who don't know: Green Day is coming out with a new album this year! Whoopee!

Dookie vs. American Idiot

In regards to everyone as I took into account the majority opinion 1. Meaningful songs: winner = American Idiot 2. Easy-Listening songs: winner = Dookie 3. Hits: winner = American Idiot 4. Essence of Green Day: winner = Dookie 5. Overall: winner = Dookie There it is, so shut up and stop fighting. You all admit together that Dookie is a bit better, although they are both fantastic

Sort Of...

I am a GD fan, and I mean no harm. You see, there are some good songs on American Idiot, but I like Dookie as well. I hope I've made my point, because I have tons more to say. 1. I can not listen to crude language. GD is a great band, but I would like the new GD if they did not use crude language. 2.They just express feelings. Go look at some of the WMUWSE Live reviews and find what the point of thier songs are. If you think I've said anything mean about GD don't rate this review as "Helpful" I recommend "When I Come Around" "Longview" and "Basket Case"

Biography

Formed: 1988 in Berkeley, CA

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s

Out of all the post-Nirvana alternative bands to break into the pop mainstream, Green Day were second only to Pearl Jam in terms of influence. At their core, Green Day were simply punk revivalists who recharged the energy of speedy, catchy three-chord punk-pop songs. Though their music wasn't particularly innovative, they brought the sound of late-'70s punk to a new, younger generation with Dookie, their 1994 major-label debut. Dookie sold over ten million copies, paving the way for a string of multi-platinum...
