I went to see Greenday and Blink 182 a couple years ago at the Pop Disaster Tour, that was a good concert. I personally like Blink 182 better though.

Blink sucks like no other. Green Day was at least decent in their early days.

Remember the south park episode where you had to pick between a giant dooch and a turd sandwich?

Dunno why that popped into my head but it did.

My straight, no bullshit opinion about what happened to Blink, based on musical quality and NOT on stupid petty bullshit like "how popular they are":

Blink 182 was an awesome band in their early days... Cheshire Cat and Dude Ranch were both very good. Then they went downhill for a few albums... they brought out more of the "we're stupid little boys who think it's funny to say fart" attitude to entice part of their audience further, and drove the other parts of their audience, who enjoyed their more serious side, (including myself) farther away.

Then they released their Self-titled.

Anyone who "used to like them" and hasn't heard their Self-titled in full NEEDS TO. It is a VERY good album. It's drastically more musically advanced than anything they ever made, and it takes itself about 100% more seriously than the band ever has as a whole.

"The boys grew up mentally" is a great way to describe what happened.

As for Green Day, I haven't been into Green Day since Dookie. That album was good.. but I just got sick of simplistic punk rock and moved on.. and it seems that they never did. So we parted ways.

Dammit was an awesome song, overall I enjoy Green Day better..but because of what Jacques said above, I might check out their self titled cd.

You won't regret it... their style gets more and more interesting with each song on it.. like they arranged it intentionally to gently lead those who liked their old style into the deeper depths of musical creation. :smile:

So don't jump to any conclusions after the first few songs.. you really have to listen to the whole thing through to "get it".. :smile:

green day.
you can compare blink to good charlotte or stuff like that. although earlier stuff was good, they have become too mtv based.

It's all about seeing past the ego games that everyone plays.

Don't hate a band because they got some MTV airplay once, that's fucking retarded. People who think this way need to grow up and learn to value music for THE MUSIC instead of what genre they fall into or whether or not they ever had an "MTV" album.

FALSE: Every band sells out sooner or later.

TRUE: Both Green Day and Blink 182 are  IMO bad music. SS7 is right, at least Green Day had Dookie. Blink had... running through the streets naked? uhhh

Sorry man, I can't even vote.

I mean, everyone has a right to their own tastes in music, but outta my mouth comes "ughhh" about Blink OR Green Day...

I agree with Blastid and everyone else who mentioned they bith are crappy music....

I will give green day this though. I saw green day and blink at the pop explosion tour a couple years ago in Minneapolis(I went w/ my gf and her little brother and some of his friends...I didn't pay for it...was basically babysitting even though we all were smoking dope the whole time...lol) Green day knows how to put on a good show. They handled the crowd as well as any concert I've ever seen and I've been to quite a few. Their music is simplistic non-art but they put on a show that made even me get into it. I was very very suprised
