The video wouldn't be THAT bad if it weren't for the talking at the start. (and in the middle too isn't it?) It just ruins the song, which is a shame cos its a pretty good song.

And I absolutely can't stand the way that girls crys. I can almost feel my ear drums weeping at the horror of that sound.

Actually, I don't have any ill feelings. I told you that a long time ago and thought we were past all that. You apparently are the one still thinking about it.

My feelings are for the attitude of the forum in general and how they think it is fun to degrade the musical preferences of others. But now that I think about it, you are consistently one of the worst offenders here, and I have even seen the mods point it out on more than one occasion.

Yes, I know grammar. I have an English Lit major in addition to Marketing. I was typing quickly and just missed it. I'm glad we have people like you here to point it out. Hope it makes you feel superior once again.

Meegannie, this is way off topic - but I was listening to Morris Day and the Time's "Jungle Love" and staring at your dancing penguins for like 5 minutes. It was most amusing.

I laugh when you make comments like this about Green Day but dislike it when others do the same thing about Coldplay.

You are on a U2 forum, right?

The Live in Chicago DVD is on its way.

Truer words were never spoken.

In TV terms (since TV had a lot to do with the song's rise to popularity) that is precisely when Green Day jumped the shark...they made a few attempts prior, but luckily Billie Joe fell off his waterskis, but this time they stuck the landing.

For me (the first album I bought myself) it was Hotel California. Even skipped at the beginning of "Life in the Fast Lane". Should still be in a box somewhere.

Woah ho hoooo! So just because they wrote an excellent song that's different to most of their other songs and that has been overplayed to Hell it sucks? Is that it, or just because it's played in more 'poignant' moments (note the air quotes) than a U2 song?

I'm always curious if the reason a lot of U2 fans seem to badmouth Coldplay, Green Day, The Killers, etc is because they're currently very popular and blatantly stealing U2's spotlight?



Wow, that came out a bit more inflamatory than I meant it to...

the video for wake me up... blows. it's stupid and pointless.

but i must say... i still listen to the american idiot album. it really is a brilliant piece of work... and i've yet to find an album in the past 5 years that comes close to it's originality and creativity.

if you can get over the over-played singles, mtv exposure and the fact that it got teeny boppers to think they were punks and actually listen to the album from start to finish... it really is something to behold.

green day are what they are... accesable pop/punk/rock. they've never tried to be anything else.
