@pearson13: Funny how when a band grows up, people like you accuse them of doing "kiddie fare". Look, I like Green Day's old stuff as much as their newer material, but if your only barometer of "greatness" is how mainstream a band is, just get lost. If you want 40-year old dudes thrashing on Les Paul jr.'s, singing about throwing feces, then go listen to Blink. Green Day's no more whoring punk than Motorhead, Sex Pistols, or even Husker Du did.
this is the oldest Green day, hhehe they weren't even Green Day at that time, Sweet Children!!! so simple, so effective, so true. Then the innocence fades away, it's inevitable. Btw.....wtf is that video??
