I think they deserve a bit of the hype around them, American Idiot was a very
good album.

I don't think they are over rated and I don't think they have sold out. However I personally don't like much of the more recent stuff they've done.

Yep,think they are a tad over rated......don't get me wrong.....I love their stuff and they are head and shoulders above most bands that are producing their type of music.

But I think they have become a bit of a populist icon.......I've met peeps who've claimed to love them.....but actually have never listened to anything they've done LOL

That's not necessarily the band's fault, though, Cherie.

It still makes me laugh how many people claim to have been at the first ever Sex Pistols gig in the 70s.  Many of them wouldn't have been old enough to get in, and of those that were old enough the venue would have needed to be the size of the Millenium Stadium to hold them all!

I much prefer the old albums like nimrod and dookie. american idiot is an awesome album, but i think its made green day too commercial which annoyed me a tad!
However i went to see them last june at the milton keynes bowl, i was front row and it was with out a doubt the best gig i have ever been too! definately legends in my eyes!

I don't think that they're overrated. They have some fantastic songs.
e.g American Idiot
"Well, there is always this"
"A sonic probe"
"Thats screwdriver"
"It is harmless"
"Ah, but it's very good at opening doors"

i like them alot, and dont think they are overated at all, lucky you lot who went to see them at Milton Keynes, my brother almost went but had a gcse exam love the dvd of it though, they look and sound amazing live, even if only on a dvd, and to me, one of the things that makes a band super is how well they perform live, they seem to be able to pull of energeitc and thrilling concerts, and have stood the test of time, so i will be a fan for a long time yet
