Sure, I like other sorts of music combining many of the techniques tehy use. Metallica, Black Sabbath, Chilli Peps, Franz Ferdinand, Killers and practically any pre-nineties rock band (I'm such a sucker). Please, abuse as much as you want. Mwahahah.

Kerplunk's good too.
But I agree with you all, American Idiot does suck.
There's only really a few not good songs on it.

I'll agree with you. They don't. They DID at one point though.
So wrong :(

does that mean people who like U2 only do so because of bono's anti-war rantings?
out of interest, have you checked out the earlier green day material?
i ask because a lot of people moan about american idiot (the single) and i can see their point, it did seem a tad "well timed" perhaps.
either way, most people at least have an opinion on it one way or the other, so they've done their job. i know they're not really a pure punk sounding band but i can't help but feel that this is what most people have taken exception to. If "american idiot" had been released by Black Flag, there probably wouldn't be as much of a backlash.
