Every other song I have heard for the past year is a Green Day song. Does it seem to anyone else that Green Day is being overplayed.

Theres no 'think' about it, saying "I think Greenday are overplayed" is like saying "Hi I have a radio and TV"

But you have a computer, which can be used for both.

I actually believe Green Day is underplayed, I have yet to hear a station devoted solely for their music. I want to listen to Wake Me up when September Ends 16 times in a row every day. They aren't catering to my needs as a listener.

Can I ask. Was that comment said as a parody, or are you actually serious?

Green Day is played on MTV and VH1 because they, get this everyone, are better than The Offspring! :eek: Aint that the darndest thing?

By the way, thread maker, buy some music and stop listening to the radio if you don't want to hear Green Day anymore.

Yes, and that's also why Fall Out Boy gets so much airplay, right?

EDIT: Just wanted to mention, I don't have a problem with people liking Green Day (usually), but don't equate that to radio or t.v. airtime.

You're mistaken. That's The Offspring.

[Serious now] Actually, it's both.

The fact that on The Offspring OWN messaging board, there are people who prefer Green day shows Offspring are in trouble. Go to any of the millions of Green day threads and none have debates like this, everyone loves Green day.

BTW, have you watched Woodstock 94 or Reading 2001? Cause both of them are live Green day gigs yet I didn't see ONE emo girl in the crowd. Yet at Offspring in 2001 I could have sworn I saw heaps of them.

Yes, and the same goes for bad Religion and Social Distortion. But with Green Day, their main fan-base is this group. Most of The Offspring's fans would have gotten into them during Smash or Americana, so they would be much older by now and probably have more mature taste in music, too.

Do you seriously think I'm the only one who thinks that? And those performances are old. I was talking about their current fan base. Besides, 2001 was right after Co1 was released, so a lot of the fans would be into their poppy stuff at that concert.

The older fanbase is dead. Haven't you noticed that yet?
And what the hell would you know about Green Day's fanbase, seeing as you aren't a fan of them?
Besides, who the hell cares about "talent" anyway? Whatever sounds good sounds good. That's all there is to music. Nothing else.

On these forums, yes, but not everywhere else. And seeing as how you don't care about talent in music, I don't know why I even bother arguing with you.

That's exactly why. People kept making threads about them (both negative and possotive) so JohnnyNemesis I believe made a Greenday Thread.

Nither one of these bands are that talented. There are so many much better bands out there.

It's a trend. Liking Greenday aswell as hating Greenday seems to be a trend. I couldn't care less I don't liek them a whole lot but I don't hate them either.

The only difference is that Green Day fans have been around longer, so they're older. When Dookie came out, that is exactly what Green Day fans were like.

PLease take the time to read some of this if you've been arguing in this thread. At least the conclusion.


And Offspring has one obsessed fan called Drummerguy123 who seems to be intent on making everyone believe that The Offspring is better than Green day. The fact that on The Offspring OWN messaging board, there are people who prefer Green day shows Offspring are in trouble. Go to any of the millions of Green day threads and none have debates like this, everyone loves Green day.

Your thought process is Messed up. Nothing You said proves anything. For the message board statement, it all depends on who signs up. I could sign up for a Green Day board right now and talk shit about them. There are plenty of people who could. There are also plenty of people who like Green Day and could come here to bash the Offspring. Some Of them do, but not all of them.


The only difference is that Green Day fans have been around longer, so they're older. When Dookie came out, that is exactly what Green Day fans were like.

First off, How the hell would you know?
Your birthday is June, 12 1991. Dookie was released February 1, 1994. That would have made you two years old. How many Green Day shows did you go to in that time period.
Secondly, not all Fall Out Boy fans look/act alike. My older brother loves Heavy Metal, and his guilty pleasure is Fall Out Boy. He sure as hell doesn't act like a whiny scenester.


POPULARITY HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH TALENT!!!!!!!!

Popularity has Heaps to do with Talent. Where you went wrong is that they both have more to do with opinion. In an average 12 year old girls opinion, Fall Out Boy would be extremely talented, and a person like Jimi Hendrix would be some stoner on an acoustic guitar. Maybe they don't know any better, or maybe you don't.

Not many people here even know what they're talking about. They just feel like arguing. Which is a very very dumb state of mind.

Here's my thoughts. If you like a band talk about them in their official thread. Have meaningful discussions about songs and albums and crap. If you Don't like a band. Don't be a dickhead and ruin it for everyone else. There's no point.

Ok, i'll give you that one. There I was just ranting.

Here, I disagree. Talent and preference are different. I prefer The Offspring over, say, Black Flag. I know that Black Flag is a more talented band, yet I prefer the Offspring, as do many people.

02-11-2006, 08:37 PM
The Offspring are better in some areas than Black Flag. Which would lead to the conclusion that they are more talented in that particular area. If all you cared about in music was that specific thing, then you would deem them more talented.

That's my reasoning anyway. You could be right... but this is how I think.

More or less what i was going to say. Someone could like the White Stripes more than, oh, let's say, Led Zeppelin or Rush. That doesn't meant that they are better, even if the masses prefer the White Stripes.

I was about to say Led Zeppelin, then I realized that more people like them than The Offspring, which would have killed my point.
