Green Day is surely the most excellent rock band ever. I really hate those people telling me that they're pop punk. Eh! they are punk rock and no one has ever done so much great effort on such single such as the boulevard of broken dreams. it could withstand overplaying than any other rock songs ive ever heard. from 15 years of my listening to rock music (ive been listening to rock music when i was introduced to it when i was 13), i guess i could say that american idiot, the album has SIGNIFICANT MEANING than any other rock album that ive got (count: nirvana, ramones, rancid, sex pistols, system of a down, the cure, the darkness, 9 inch nails.....). I give my utmost respec to these PUNK ROCKERS!!
