Green Day

I'm a little ticked off that Green Day won for Record Of The Year. The damn album has been out for two years. They said it themselves in their acceptance speech. I realize it's one of their later singles...but in all fairness there should be a one year cut-off. I wish Gorillaz won in that category. Them being a virtual animated band, I think a lot of people would've been interested in seeing who's the brains behind the project. Also I'm a huge Blur fan. As for Green Day, I liked them much more when they were writing teen-age slacker anthems (Longview) rather than this political shit. I doubt they would've even been noticed for that album without playing the political angle.

They have made some catchy songs, but they definitely aren't an incredible band in my humble opinion. If someone disagrees, thats cool, I can see how they would appeal to people, they're very opinionated and rocking.

But yea doesn't that seem kinda strange that the whole "punk" thing was basically no government? I mean wasn't that Sex Pistols song about being an anarchist and anti-christ. Yet they love to promote an anti-bush, anti-republican government.

OMG THAT's SO PUNK!!!! :moshes:

I don't know what the hell i'm saying haha.

Asking the politics question, proves you have no clue what punk is.

It's what year the single was released. It was released during this grammy year.

Take it up with the acedemy.

the sheer stupidity of u2_love_adam's question aside, i find this thread amusing. where were you guys when the album actually did come out and i was getting flamed all over the place (my favorite was the guy who called me a republican) for saying this stuff back then?

The Green Day album came out two months before U2, but I don't hear you complaining about U2 winning. Seriously.

Oh, and politics and punks have gone together before. Ever hear of The Clash? They just did the politics better.

That was a good description of them in the 90's, but have you heard American Idiot (other than the title song?) It's a great album and really shows their improvement, maturity and increase in pure talent that has come over the years as a band who stayed together. I like them now, and Billie Joe is HOT since he gave up the silly punk look. The longer black hair and eye liner =

And speaking of milking an album for 2 years, U2 did the same, with Bomb and ATYCLB! Boulevard of Broken Dreams is an awesome song, and deserved the award more than anything it was up against.

Green Day's competition for Record of the Year:

Mariah Carey, "We Belong Together"

Gorillaz, "Feel Good Inc."

Gwen Stefani, "Hollaback Girl"

Kayne West, "Gold Digger"

Boulevard was by far the best and most deserving song. Consider the writing, the lyrics, the performance and the sound compared to those others.
