Do you really think Green Day's new album is really as good as it seems?

Is Green Day's 'American Idiot' really as good as it seems?

Now it's been bothering me, everybody says it's a great album. However, I think it sucks. I want to know everybody's else opinion.

to answer the question, green day's american idiot can only sound as good as it seems.. so yes it does sound as good as it seems.. it's failing is that it seems shit, sounds shit and is shit. green day are punks in the 1940s meaning of the word.

didn't they call this album a punk opera, way to go with the witty ironic contrast concept boys.. what next, punk and irish folk music? oh, but the pogues did that already and drank and drugged and out-intellectualised your sorry asses into oblivioburbia while you were probably wearing baby gap.. well, i know AI isn't actually opera, but they had the nerve to use that as a reference and i have the nerve to call them cunts for it..

fuck a bunch of middle class punk.

Green Day's an older band?

I disagree though. Some bands get better with time, some don't. It just depends on how much potential a band's sound has.

Well, I guess "older" wasn't the correct word in this context.

Mid '90's.:confused:

Or almost all bands period, the first one or two albums a band records usually have more work and originality in put into them.
That and some artists only have so much they can come up with thats any good.

That's because they usually make one or two records just to become popular and well-known, by putting actual thought into what they write.

Then, once they're popular, they'll record pure, 100% shit. But, people will still buy that shit because they were "popular."

Fucking lemmings.:happysad:

Isn't as good as it SEEMS? It doesn't SEEM good at all, it sounds like complete crap. American Idiot is probably one of the worst ever.
Pop Punk = GAY!
