Most Popular Punk Rock Bands
« see full list
Their music is so meaningful. Their music is all about government, politics, religion, and so on. Billie Joe Armstrong has a great voice and even now his voice never change. Of all the bassist I think Mike Dirnt is the Best bass player in the history of Punk Rock. And Tre Cool is the best drummer in the history of Punk Rock as Billie Joe stated in their Bullet in a Bible concert.
Billie Joe Armstrong is one the greatest person in his class, Amazing Singer and lead guitarist. Tre Cool is the best drummer alive and Mike Dirnt is the best time bassist.
To all skeptics, give a listen to the following Green Day songs and be open minded, give them a chance: 1. Reject 2. ) Take Back 3. ) Pulling Teeth 4. ) Geek Stink Breath 5. ) Letterbomb 6. ) St. Jimmy 7. ) Peacemaker 8. ) Haushinka 9. ) Paper Lanterns 10. ) Christie Road. Give any of these a listen, and I'm sure you'll find at least one song that you'll appreciate.
Green Day is easily the best punk band of all time. Jesus of Suburbia is the best song ever. American Idiot is the best album of all time. Milton Keynes was the biggest concert of all time. You have no taste in good music at all if you don't like this band. Forget Rise Against and Blink 182 this is the best band of all time
People who say green day isn't punk, if you were true and knew punk it's about trying new things out, whether it's an acoustic thrown into the album or going mad at politicans, it's saying what you think and creating your own sense of freedom which is exactly what green day have done over the past 20 years, yes there is a big change between them in the dookie era and 21st century breakdown but they still are punk and have changed peoples lives. I'm a billie joe armstrong fan, yes, I think he is an amazing man with a really good attitude and view on the political and religious side of today. I do agree with you guys that say girls maybe support green day because of billie's looks but the bottom line is they are a great band with amazing success and they still will be my favourite band when I'm about 80 so yeah, GREEN DAY!
Green Day is personally my favorite band. I have liked their music since I was fairly young, but I only became a huge fan as of three years ago. Green Day's music is inspiring as well as fun to listen to. They have incorporated everything from love and teenage angst, to politics and rage into their songs and I respect them as people. And I am not one of those girls that scream about how much I love Billie Joe either. He is an amazing singer and guitarist in my opinion, but I don't want to marry him. Mike and Tré are also great musicians and sometimes I think the fans don't give them enough credit. I also think it's really amazing how long they have stayed together as a band and how long Billie and Mike have been friends (since they were ten! ). Anyway, that's my opinion on why they're the best punk rock band of their (and my) generation.
GREEN DAY is the BEST! 21 guns is absoulutly the most meaningful song I have ever heard... all of GREEN DAYs songs are. BIllie Joe Armstrong has an AMAZING voice and they are all skilled musicians I couldn't listen to the all day everyday for the rest of my life and never NOT want to hear them over again! :) the have the absoulute best Punk rock/pop punk music I've ever heard! the lyrics are EXTREMLY meaningful and relateful to me I wish I could write songs that amazing. if you've never heard them try 21 guns, Holiday, wake me up when september ends, Good ridance (time of your life), boulevard of broken dreams, American idiot, Basket Case, King for a day, jesus of suburbia, ha ha your dead and every other green day song you can get your hands on :)GREEN DAY is AMAZINg love them
Green Day is definitely the best punk rock band around. Billie Joe has influenced lots of people in the ways that they write music, he has influenced other people to start playing guitar, and to top it all off, has a signature model with Gibson guitars.
Mike Dirnt is currently known for his bass guitar riffs, licks and techniques, no wonder he has be nominated for the worlds best bassist of all time. He even has a signature bass made by Fender.
Tre' Cool, Where do you start with this guy? He is incredibly funny and also really good on the drums. Who would have thought that a german kid raised in the land of the hippies would have grown up playing american punk rock drums?

I REALLY WISH TO MEET BILLY JOE SOMEDAY! GREENN DAY! 1
Green Day is an amazing band. They've been able to make the fans grow with them, which is very hard. Billie Joe's lyrics is actually the main reason why I'm still alive. Several years ago, I almost committed suicide. Then the song "Give me novacaine" came on the radio. I'm still here, and so is many others, others who also have found support in their songs and not committed suicide because of them. They also have a "f that s" - attitude, that makes teenagers able to relate to many of their songs. But still... Give me Novocaine is not my favorite.. You have songs like - going to pasalacqua, - platypus (i hate you), - st. Jimmy, - letterbomb, - burnout, - F.O.D. , - J.A.R. , - walking contradiction, - welcome to paradise, - who wrote holden caulfield? , and 409 in your coffee maker!
Green Day is the best punk rock band in the world because they have their own ways of doing things themselves. The writing of their songs is original and the results is something so special that my ears can not believe how much has it's good. This is thanks to Billie Joe Armstrong, Tré Cool and Mike Dirnt of Green Day is what it is. As Billie Joe said, Green Day, it's them. They have all of Green Day in them, because it's all because of their talent that the group is so fabulous. If there would not Tré Cool, no one as good as he did to succeed has grooves as he did. Mike Dirnt is a professional bass and most of all, Billie has a voice that is unique. It is thanks to them that many other groups is formed.
Green Day practically made me who I am today, without Green Day I never would have discovered all of these other amazing bands that I listen to today. I never would have heard of Fall Out Boy, or of My Chemical Romance and Pencey Prep. And I have to thank my dad for introducing me to them. Without my dad I never would have discovered punk in the first place. I was raised on punk. And I have to say, Green Day are the kings of it along with the Ramones, the Sex Pistols, The Clash, The Buzzcocks and many, many more.
Green day's music is so diffent and I love it! The are the best link band ever! Their music makes senei. And I can dealt to some of third songs like Jesus of suburbia! Billie Joe even said himself that it mean a lot to him when he sees he's fan not only facing but singing along then he nos that they are going to understand more. That J's why green day is my idol! They are turly dedicated to what they do! There not in the music busniess fir money they are In it to make pink rock fun again and to change people life! They changed mine complety rock on green day we love you!
I think that Green Day has the best music in history, no other band can beat it. I think that Green Day could beat any other band in the history of music if they had a battle of the bands competition. Another Reason is that Billie Joe Armstrong is proberbly the best guitarist in human history as well as Mike Dirnt (best bass) and Tre Cool (best drum). I recommend this music to anyone at any who really likes Punk Rock
If it weren't for Green Day, Punk Music wouldn't be so much so popular.
There are many good punk bands like Sum 41, Blink 182, Good Charlotte, Simple Plan, but all these bands were INSPIRED by none other than Green Day!
So, GREEN DAY is always #1! Enough Said!
Grenn day is the most popular punk rock band with the most pleasant music to listen to. I just can't put my earphones off. Listen to some songs like Wake Me Up When September Ends, Boulevard Of Broken Dreams and 21 Guns and you will realize the artists' talent and inventive mind of writing punk rock music and lyrics. It is also significant to say that green day's american idiot(album), which has a storyline, (repeat:storyline, have you ever seen an album with a storyline? )has appeared as a play on Broadway and it is now confirmed that it is going to be produced as a movie by Tom Hanks.
People say Green day ain't punk anymore. But they are. I'm not saying they're the best band ever. But they truly are people who influenced generations of musicians and young people. Classics like Dookie, Insomniac and American idiot are still in my heart. Even now when I'm 31. No, I'm not some kid who wants to be Billie Joe, I'm a person who grew up listening to them... The Clash certainly proved that if you still have that punk idea, you can take your music everywhere and it can still be punk. So, Cheers for Green Day!
I love green Day so much! I've seen them in concert twice in Paris and Mainz
And if someone tells me that Linkin Park beats green day, I get into a pretty intense fight with that person xD
Billy Joe Armstrong, Tre Cool, And Mike Dirnt just make the most perfect combination of musicians to make the perfect songs
Awesome As F*** is my favorite movie, and whoever thinks this Justin Bieber movie is in the top charts, are a bunch of dumboeheads, CUZ GREEN DAY KICKS BUTT AND SHOULD BE WINNING ALL THE AWARDS!
My point, Green Day is Amazing
Every Green Day album has something to do whith the world, war, politics, etc. You may even find songs that talk about you. A teenagers life is incomplete without Green Day. They just rock your brains out. They seriously are a legend, billie is an awesome singer, mike is awesome at playing the bass and tre... He ROCKS at the drums. Blink 182, sum 41, My Chemical Romance, etc. Are awesome bands but they don't compare to Green Day... Green Day deserves to be number 1. And it will be number one till the end.
Green Day is not the most punk band on this list, (Still more punk than Blink 182, My Chemical Romance, Simple Plan, Sum 41) But the list is not asking for the most punk. It's asking for the best punk band here. Sure, the Sex Pistols, Clash, and the Ramones created the genre of punk. I love all 3 of those bands. But I would choose Green Day's, "Insolmniac" over any one of the albums that those bands have put out, and I have them all. Sex Pistols, Ramones, and the Clash are all great bands, but none of them hold anything on Green Day's live show.
Seems to be the ultimate love them or hate them band. Love them because their music transcends the boundaries of genres, because they are highly talented, their songs carry great meaning (to me at least)and are most probably the best live band in the world. Hate them because you don't like boulevard of broken dreams or wake me up when September ends and they got played on the radio once too often so thus hate all post 20th century songs in the green day cannon or just hate them because all life has been sucked from your lifeless soul!
ALL OF THE BANDS ON THIS LIST MAKE ME WANT TO STAB SOMEBODY. I LOVE GREEN DAY AND BLINK AND THE MISFITS. THE CLASH ARE OKAY TOO. BUT JUST THE WAY THIS LIST IS SET UP MAKES ME WISH MOST OF YOU WOULD DIE IN A FIRE. THIS IS NOT A LIST OF THE BEST PUNK BANDS. IT'S A LIST OF THE BEST RADIO FRIENDLY MAJOR LABEL POP PUNK CULTURE GET A LUNCHBOX AND THERMOS OF MY FAVORITE BAND. REAL PUNK IS ABOUT THE MUSIC NOT THE DOLLARS, GREEN DAY, CLASH, MISFITS ARE, BUT JUST BARELY KEEP IN MIND, DESERVING OF BEING ON A PUNK LIST... AND P.S. F you C K SIMPLE PLAN
Of course Green Day is #1. From their first album, '1,039/Smoothed Out Slappy Hours', to their most recent, '21st Century Breakdown': Green Day rock all the way; they always have and they always will.
As the creators of epic songs such as 'Jesus of Suburbia', 'Going To Pasalacqua', 'Longview' and 'Stuck With Me', Green Day knock all pther punk rock bands out of the park. They are AWESOME, and mean the world to me. Thanks, Green Day... You rock.
No frontman of any band, gets any better than Billie Joe Armstrong, even in his 40's the man can make a performance like he did when he was in his 20's. His lyrics he writes for his songs, simply amazing. Mike, and Tre as well, are amazing musicians. The band was even able to stay the same since forever despite one drummer whom left for college. Green Day is the most epic band to ever step afoot on this planet. " The only way someone is leaving this band, is in a body casket"~BJA
A teenagers life is incomplete without Green Day. Their songs are simply awesome and are a treat to the ears. I've grown up listening to their songs.
Boulevard of Broken Dreams is their best song(personal opinion)
