Never before in the history of modern music has there been a collection of hypocritical assholes quite so abrasively annoying, or utterly soul-raping as green day. When I hear Green Day's music, I'm truly flabbergasted by just how well their particular brand of Pussy-Punk is marketed to the nearly retarded. The most depressing part of it all is the fact that they're probably not even aware of what raging hypocrites they are.
They're even hypocritical in the sonic sense. Their musical style is mostly lifted from Bad Religion. Even if they could write music that was good, or even tolerable, there's still the issue of their whore-punk, do-anything-for-a-buck mentality. What makes Green Day so much more damaging than the typical sellout rock band, like U2 or Aerosmith, is the fact that they specifically attempt to sell this perverse form of well-confined rebellion while doing things like having their audience hold up their cell phone display screens, rather than lighters during a show.
Now maybe some of you bitch-made Gibroneys from this generation are okay with that, but I'm from the 90's and I'm here to tell you, that it's definitely not cool. I know that for quite some time now, it's been hip for bands to sellout but for Christ's sake, do you need to involve the audience in it? Do you need us to feel as degraded as you do? Seriously, fuck Green Day.
