    Default Second Official Greenday Thread

    Talk about Greenday here.

    My god you guys can talk about Greenday...over 2500 replies?

    Anyways we had to close it because Greenday.com sent us a legal injunction forbidding us to use their trademark Greenday™. So we were forced to close the thread for fear of a lawsuit. (But we're tru-fuckin-punx so we're starting one again anyways!)









    ...Nah just joking, none of that's true. The thread size had grown too big for the server to handle easily so we're breaking down the largest threads into bite-sized server-chunks.

    So let's talk about that Youtube video from the original thread.

    I really like it. Although I wasn't thinking I'd be excited for a new Green Day album, I really liked the vibe of that song a lot.
    "I'll die before I surrender, Tim".

    LOL it's Green Day, not Greenday.

    As I said before, that riff he was playing reminded me so much of classic Green Day. I'm glad they're staying that way, because although American Idiot was good, I was worried that they'd change direction to the point where it just wasn't Green Day anymore. That, and those hippie covers they did kinda got me worried.

    But yea, this is gonna be the Green Day that Green Day fans all know and love, and knowing Green Day, it's probably gonna put a nice, surprising spin on things like American Idiot did!

    Also, I said "Green Day" like about 6 times in this post not including the last one!

    Well, I haven't listened to Green Day since "American Idiot" came out, because I absolutely despised that album, barring a few songs. But, if this new YouTube thing shows that they're going back to sound they originally became known for, I might be remotely interested again. Link please?

    As I mentioned in the other thread, I find that the stuff played in the clip has an almost Warning vibe about it. Now, Green Day is one of my favorite bands, but after listening to American Idiot literally everyday from Sept of 04 to Jan of 05, I got sick of them. Lately I’ve been breaking out their “middle albums”, ie Warning (their best work imo) and Nimrod, but I am now starting to get really excited for the new album. This video clip just adds to that anticipation, I hope they keep us updated.

    I’m really curious to see how big of an impact that Butch Vig has on their sound.

    I don't think that song sounds like "classic Green Day" the way everyone says it does. I think it sounds more like Warning than "classic Green Day". Which is ot a bad thing, as Warning is my favorite Green Day album, I just don't see where everyone is getting the "classic Green Day" vibe from it.

    The first song on that video feels like a more "classic GD" to me, while the second song seems like it could have been on Warning.

    Warning's pretty classic by my standards. I guess it would have been better to say pre-American Idiot.

    Does it really still need to be stickied?

    I second the motion for it to be un-stickied.
