If this is your first album i think you should get International Superhits and/or American Idiot and take it from there

1) Whenever a band produces something which gets lots of new people interested or writes about something they feel strongly about, they are considered sell outs.

Then, if they do deliberately produce material which is different and non-mainstream, no-one buys the albums (Pearl Jam, anyone?). Bands can't win.

The whole point is that you are pigeonholing the bands when they're just doing what they want to do, be it creating mainstream stuff or something different.

2) Kerplunk! was one of my favorite Green Day albums. The sound is a lot more raw than the later stuff and some of the lyrics are masterful.

They're not though. The only good song on AI is St Jimmi, which is the only 'punk' song on it.

Yeah, whatever, you got what I meant.

That was before they sold out, though, and still lived in a box and played gigs for free under secret trees in secret parks for true fans only who had Green Day tatooed on their face five times.

I don't care what the rest of your post said. It's "Good Riddance"

Changing genres isn't selling out, it's just making themselves crap

But they COMPLETELY went off the Punk genre. Shenanagins went a bit astray, but a bit of Punk was still there. Now it's just jumping onto the Bush hating bandwagon, with crap songs which still sell.
