Green Day is NOT Punk, and NEVER will be punk! They are a pop band, little girls like Green Day, little girls hate like Black Flag. Back Flag is real Punk. Green Day are pop, lame ass punk wannabees.

American Idiot was made in an era where protest music against the government werent played on the radio. They knew the risk they took by making something political. If they really were sellouts they would have made something less drastic than American Idiot.

21st century breakdown are not sold on wallmart because they denied to change their lyrics. sellouts? i think not.

But the question remains, is Green Day a punk band?
First, you have to define the word. if you define punk as the sound of the music, then their newer stuff are not punk. But if you think that punk is a state of mind, then Green Day is a punk band.

I don't care what anyone says, Green Day is not punk. I play music (mainly the bass) and I have listened to their music. They have a punk theme in their lyrics, but their music itself is not punk.

Please. Green Day is punk that has been watered down and made child-appropriate, then sold to thousands of obediant little "rebels" who thought listening to it would make them hardcore or some shit. They stripped the harsh teen angst and confusing emotions worded perfectly in good punk.

A note to any Green Day fans with some insane butthurt right now...
JUST BECAUSE YOU SOUND LIKE SOMETHING DOESN'T MEAN YOU ARE THAT THING.

If Beyonce came out with a hardcore, aggressive album, would she be punk? No.

It's a mind set. MIND SET.

Green Day are sell outs. No true punk would perform for the *muffles laugh* mtv music awards. No punk would wear clothing THAT IS SOLD AT HOT TOPIC. Because that's not punk. Punk is rebellion from the norm.

I see girls and boys at my school dressed as tame as Green Day... are they punk? No.

Think about it. Punk is like underground. Would hipsters sit by while a fake mainstream band copied the sound of the cool, indie bands? No.

Good day, kids.

OH YEAH. I don't even want to hear that the real punks only care about drugs, either. Because, kind civilian, one of the biggest punk songs ever was Straight Edge by Minor Threat, a score THAT INTRODUCED THE DRUG-FREE PUNK LIFESTYLE.

Go listen to some Black Flag, Sex Pistols, Minor Threat, Bratmobile and Dead Kennedy's, you poor, fake punks.

yeah like the ramones and the clash weren't mainstream. THEY WERE. EVERYONE LIKED THEM. Punk is thinking for yourself. not going against the mainstream for being mainstream, trying hard to be non conformist and anti-mainstream IS MAINSTREAM. they are punk in their old shit, listen to take back or kerplunk. and fashion doesn't matter. i thought punk meant thinking for yourself and not caring about what others will tell you to do. punks dress how they want. Ramones were big, sex pistols were big. punk has nothing to do with mainstream

"punk is resisting tyranny in any form" - henry rollins

punk is not a fashion
punk never died

if you want pop punk try sum 41 and good charlotte. green day played a few pop punk songs. they sound more like ramones and buzzcocks and nofx

they are a good band and do rock some. But, they aren't punk. Too popular and pop sounding by far.
