For a band as huge as Green Day, they don't need to "rush out an album for a quick buck". That's such an uninformed and irrational way of thinking given how much of the music has been released.

I definitely won't argue about any of the songs sucking or not; with 3 discs it's bound to happen. But to make the ever-so-easy and oh-so-typical knee jerk comment like "they wanna make a quick buck" is silly.

You don't know the band. You don't know how financially set they are (neither do I). You don't know their integrity and pride they may or may not take in a given endeavor. It's just not that rational of a thing to say. It's a typical fan/message board comment, if you will.
Considering Dookie alone has probably sold more copies than all of Justin Bieber's albums combined (only mentioning this cause everyone is making a big deal about all the Lambos he's been buying) I'd say they're pretty loaded. Which at times is annoying, BJ always b****es about class warfare yet he's never seen wearing anything but designer outfits and ****.
