  1. GREEN DAY IS NOT PUNK, and no one into alternative music in the 80s that I ever met wanted anything like them to ever happen

  2. I think they mean the formula, @Matt
    I’m also pretty sure everyone you ever met would love the fact they are still being spoken for by you.

  3. yeah, ‘pop-punk’ not punk

  4. Green Day is way overrated.

    RIP Jeffrey Lee Pierce.
