I think Green Day is not a real punk band but is a really good band....I think is simply a punk group against goverment and society and lifes' problems but not a real punk band as i said before.......

Their older stuff wuz punk(like Dookie,Kerplunk,1039,Smooth Slappy hours).

Their newer stuff,like American Idiot,wuz sumwhat punkish.

Billie said that their next album might b a 2 cd set.

I just hope they drop the "anti-government" thing.

it wuz cute when it first started,but now,it's getting old.

Green Day is a real punk band. They're punk as f***. They know what punks about. They can't call themselves a punk band but they are. Just because they got big and famous and actually did something awesome with their lives doesn't mean that they aren't punk rockers anymore. ANd I think the "anti-government" thing is awesome. Someone with that much success needs to carry the torch and curse out the government a little more. At least they contain that much of the punk rock value still. Green Day, I applaud you!

It really depends on how other people look at it. But I've been in the punk business since I was 9, and I'd say that Green Day's older stuff was a hell of a lot more of what you people call "punk"

Their American Idiot stuff is boring. I'm just anxious for their new album, and I've heard some of it will be on the piano...

MDS? I never knew that MDS could be an acronym for words that start with the letters M, S, and I. impressive. glad to see you made an intelligent point.

<quoted text>yeah not quite as intelligent as "MSI is punk" but what can i say, i try. i bet it makes you feel real special to point out typos eh?
It's not considered a typo when you're unintelligent. I just thought it quite ironic that you were saying that others were unintelligent, but couldn't even figure out the letters that mindless self indulgence started with. Hypocrisy amuses me.

<quoted text>the punk business? that's a new one... don't know if you've noticed, but not a whole lot of "people" know what the hell punk is. so, whatever a whole lot of people THINK something is, is irrelevant from what it ACTUALLY is. the majority of people in the whole united states THOUGHT George Bush was the best choice for president two times in a row, does that mean he was? fuck no.
Hey, I'm not saying he was the best president twice in a row, but I'm just done with "punks" saying that Bush sucks and all that. We know he sucks, so put away American Idiot and wait to unleash the anarchy until the opportune moment (actually, just stop it all). And yes, I have noticed. Why do you think there's a billion people who are trying to be punk, but their actions, words & other sh*t don't quite match up at all. I hate alot of mainstream music, but I listen to some of it. I like listening to the earlier punk bands (Sex Pistols, The Ramones, etc.) more than the stuff today.

And come to think of it, I don't really listen to Green Day that much anymore. But people do have their own versions of punk, and that's the way it'll be for as long as this "What is really punk?" debate goes on.

Why'd you post back? If you thought it was pointless, you didn't need to waste your time posting back.

<quoted text>lol i can't believe you're actually arguing over whether i made a typo or i actually can't spell MSI. i guess it's much more logical to assume i can spell all these other words yet have trouble with a three letter acronym. maybe you should stick to taking pictures of yourself naked in the mirror with cigarettes trying to look "super cool."
These people like to point out your spelling errors because they are intimidated by you and don't actually know anything about the subject they are trying to argue about
