    I didn't say anything to the contrary. I'd play it too if given the chance. I'd also realize that I'm playing some corporate ****************fest where most of the performers are more interested in dancing and lip synching .

    Green Day isn't a punk band.

    • Anyone seen the Nov. GW? It has Billie on the cover, and the tagline: "Has Billie Joe Armstrong gone BONKERS?" How prophetic! I still like 'em, though it was a douchey move. They're kind of a pop punk zz top, they keep putting out decent albums (imho), and aren't doing commercials for pepsi or anything.... -Adam

          Now I follow. Same here.

              They started out as a punk band on Lookout records, a primarily punk-rock label, and their sound was unchanged for the first ten years of their career, even after leaving Lookout. Their current sound is barely a departure from the original, since they're still hammering out the same three-chord patterns to roughly the same rhythm. You're free to dislike their image, politics, or whatever else they've morphed into while under the spotlight, but they were punk in 1988, they were punk in 1994, and since their music hasn't really changed, they're still punk in 2012.



              Punk is a sub-genre of rock, and Green Day's music falls squarely into that sub-genre. The promoters of whoever just so happened to want a punk band at a pop festival, which is fine, because really, rock is just a sub-genre of pop[ular] music.

                • Genre's are lame. Criticizing something because it doesn't completely fit a genre is lamer.

                      Genres in of themselves aren't lame, They simply exist to make it easier to organize music and help people find more music they may like. What is lame is the grossly exaggerated importance many seem to attach to them.

                            • I would've been pissed off too. Like them or not, Green Day is/was a HUGE band. A punk rock band. Good for him.
