This is awesome. Any Green Day fans here?

That seems like overkill. I know they have worked hard in the past on their albums but I hope they don't try and breeze through these.

I will be looking forward to the first one and see how that goes.

Meh ,, Haven't been impressed with Green Day since Nimrod

Warning = Some decent songs but not that great of an album
American Idiot = Again some decent songs ,, Got too much airplay though on the hits
21st Century Breakdown = Total ####

"Older" Green Day fan here. Their pre-Dookie songs remain amongst my favorites. Grew up listening to the songs driven by teen angst, but not a big fan of the quasi-political stuff of late. But they still put on a heck of a live show.

It'll be interesting to see what kind of theme they'll have with the three albums. Whether or not each album might be a standalone or if they'll try to tie it together.

I still find it funny that they essentially scrapped an entire album (Cigarettes and Valentines) in 2003 because they realized it wasn't good.

MeowLeafs 04-11-2012 06:51 PM

I'd much rather have 1 good album then 3 mediocre ones. Hopefully they won't be mediocre.

ClicheGuevara 04-11-2012 07:04 PM

Sounds like it'll be Green Day's Sandinista!

JackFr 04-11-2012 07:08 PM

Whatever. I'm sure they'll have at least 12 total good songs so I'll just compile one great album.

re5piration 04-11-2012 07:13 PM

Hopefully it has quality songs like American Idiot. 2CB wasn't nearly as good as I anticipated it to be.

pretty much this

Well their last two albums were pure garbage. They simply are not a 'grandiose' band. Linkin Park can pull it off, Green Day cannot.

I read somewhere that their new stuff would be like their old stuff.

Dookie and Nimrod were two of my favorite albums as a kid. Hard bass line, and hard to understand vocals :yo:

Takeo 04-11-2012 09:25 PM

For all intents and purposes, Green Day ended after Nimrod.

DuckJet 04-11-2012 09:53 PM

Wow. I'll buy em for sure. Can't remember the last time a band I liked did this.

Could be interesting to see how a tour would play out and how many tracks would be on each record. Blink 182 only had 9 on Neighborhoods...doubt Green Day would do that though. Either way we can expect like 27-38 new GD songs.

I think all the older fans, the ones who grew up on Nimrod and Dookie would probably like these. They've stated numerous times that they're dropping the grandiose style from the last two and going back to the old punk sound. Don't know if it'll be exactly like the old days, might be closer to what they did with Foxboro Hot Tubs, but as long as they can mix the old with the new it should be interesting.

I agree. I think it was made with the best intentions and a complete effort, but it was an effort to build on something like American Idiot, whose success I thought was a bit of an accident.

I'd agree with you on 21stCB, but American Idiot was a pretty good album. Grandiose was semi-intentional with that one. They went for a more mature sound. 21stCB was practically operatic and they fell on their faces.

I hate when people compare Green Day and Linkin Park. They aren't alike.

Now this is a guy that understands them. New Video

I don't think any other bands have done this.

21st grew on me after a while. At least most of it did.



Mike singing a bit is just great.

Do not like that song. Probably my least favorite Green Day song. I can listen to some 21stCB songs when they come on (East Jesus, Murder City, Static Age, Enemy, Viva la Gloria 1 and 2) but this was terrible other Green Day songs y'know protested Republican politics on a subtle level...I'm independent so I don't care either way, I just can't stand it when politics gets nasty, and this song is pure unfiltered political spew. It doesn't have a place in this genre.

That said, despite 21cb being a disappointing album, they are REALLY good live these days. I see a lot of bands...and this isn't just a matter of talent. Lot's of bands go up, play their songs, maybe their frontman gives us something to look at, then they're gone...Green Day puts on a show. They do a great job of entertaining, and their performances have been almost flawless. And not much has changed since American Idiot (I only say that because in my opinion the live recording of Holiday on Bullet in a Bible was better than the studio version) but my first Green Day show was during the Dookie days, they've improved a LOT since then.

Saw them in Milton Keyes here in the UK and loved them

Indeed. I have zero faith that they can pull this off.

Oh you know it. They don't even exist to me anymore.

Can you say - pretentious.

SomeDude 04-12-2012 02:14 AM

Bush isn't in office anymore. How did they find material to write about?

They wrote about the aftermass of his presidency. Read it in MTV when the album came out.

agreed.

So I guess this means 1-2-3 should produce about 6-8 songs total that are decent, with the rest of it being political garbage or old filler songs that didn't make previous CDs?

Well...you can never take a band's word for it 100% but when they did the secret show where they played 15 songs they announced that they had written 50 songs and counting since 21stCB dropped.

I mean it's safe to assume that most of them will be garbage since we say what happened when GD loaded their last album with more songs than we needed (some of their b-sides were better than some of the songs on the album) but Billie Joe wrote 21stCB LONG after American Idiot was over.

It can only be assumed that most of these songs were written on tour. And again I can only assume, but while you're on tour it's probably a great time to draw inspiration for new stuff.

The best hope for older fans is that
1.) 21stCB was in my mind a desperate Grammy grab. Can't see how a best rock album can be awarded to a 3 part album.

2.) Uno!Dos!Tre in itself. 21stCB was a very serious attempt at maturity, the albums they plan on releasing are already denoted
with a air of immaturity.

3.) Green Day promised a return to the old sound while using what they learned from the new sound to make something potentially better. Could clash into something ugly, but it could hit too.

4.) Lately from what I've seen Green Day has been going back to how they used to be in the 90's. I went to an American Idiot show, and a 21stCB show. The difference is stark. AI, Billie had a ton of energy, but he was there to rock. 21stCB, despite a more bold and mature album they were all goofing off on a huge level + the entire set-list was only like 25% AI-21stCB songs.

Just a thought. Still gotta give props to Green Day as a band though, 21stCB+it's b-sides came out to 21 songs that they had to remember. And I read a report that when writing 21stCB they had written 32 songs. We can expect at least that on the next album set. Or we could believe what they're saying and believe that they wrote 50 songs. That's 82 songs for two studio efforts. As mediocre as some of them might have been, that's quite a feat.
