    Basically people say bands are awesome until they go mainstream, then people say "OH THEY SUCK NOW". I don't care how popular American Idiot was, it was a great album. Like how Demon Days made Gorillaz relatively popular but it was still their best album to date.

    That being said I haven't bothered listening to Green Day's most recent album but I've still listened to most things from Kerplunk! to American Idiot.

    I think that they only sold out with 21st Century Breakdown. I hate pop-punk, and thats what that album was. It had no new ideas in it, the songs were generic. Should not have won the Grammy for Best Rock Album. Then again, the Grammy awards are always given to sucky bands
