I gotta go with Green Day because I've never been a big fan of Pearl Jam, whereas I like a lot of Green day's music.

I never could be a fan on Pearl Jam. Sure they had a few good songs that I don't mind hearing on the radio from time to time, but in general they just sound dull and boring to me. I'm not to big on artists who record their politics in their songs either so Green Day it is.

Are you kidding? Green Day's entire last album was like one political soundtrack.

Again, two bands that I really like, but I went with trajectories. While Pearl Jam's early stuff has withstood the test of time, their trajectory has not been toward producing better albums in my humble opinion.

I know its cool to hate American Idiot because its been over-radio-played, but I love the album and I love the concept of a Punk Rock Opera. Love it or hate it, that album elevated Green Day from a 90s grunge/punk johnny-come-lately to a band that actually has staying power.

Dookie may even be my 3rd or 4th favorite Green Day album. I think Nimrod is their best effort, followed by AI, and I really dug the B-sides album (Shenanigans) they released in the 200-something. Warning was a nice change of pace and showed range, and their early stuff is a bit raw, but great. Insomniac is the only one that's really hit and miss for me, but it has my favorite Green Day of all time on it (Brain Stew).

And when you listen to a Green Day greatest hits album, its clear that are more than 20 great songs.

Plus, they're good live - their 2001 Warped Tour set was the highlight of the entire show for me.


Definitely agree here El Duderino (not into the whole brevity thing).

I personally didn't get off on AI because of its political agenda, but the quality of their music was definitely higher in AI. And I loved Warning ... it got a lot of flak because it was very unorthodox, but it did show a wide range, as you said.

Shenanigans was 2002, by the way. Probably my 3rd-favorite album by then. Not so much for its quality of music ... but listening to the whole album through is just a jolly good time. ;-D
