Not really I said :if" because I don't believe in this shit but that's what you know, people who believe in punk cred say. It WAS pop punk for fuck sake. But somehow it seems to me that band like Green Day were still kinda just intelligent enough or maybe should I say not too stupid and also had some sort of spark there in their songwriting method despite it being very much the same and derivative.

Whereas when I hear bands like Blink 182 or Sum 41 I just hear dumb as a brick. Both lyrically and musically. It seems kinda hilarious to say but GD had some...nuances.

Green Day is an Alt. Rock band with punk influence.
And they're pretty decent.

I don't know what i'd pick as my favorite Green Day songs but something like She, Sassafras roots, 2000 light years away or Stuck with me.

And as dumb as most songs on 1039 are, at 16 (which they were when they wrote it and i was when i bought it) it's kinda talking a lot about your life. Like....hanging out at the library and checking out some girl (like at the library above)

Has Green Day's core fan base always been 16 year olds or was that only since American Idiot?

Nice choices man! I had forgot all about haha your dead. Watched that little video, makes it more powerful when you're reading along to the lyrics . Gonna download that shit again now.

At the Libary's cool too. Haushinka's the bomb. I think the bridge to that track might be my favorite moment of Nimrod.

Green Days just sorely underrated by a lot of the old grungetards

I think most new hardcore fans of any rock band are usually in that age bracket.

I'd say likely. I think it's hard for any man past 30 to listen to dookie, nevermind the earlier stuff, and relate to it. I really don't think you should be able to anyway. Even I in my arrested development state can't do it.

uhhh yeah... Most excitement and enthusiasm for music usually comes from the Teens... If you're a new hardcore fan of a band you're likely going to be a youngster.

We must have different definitions of the phrase "hardcore fan"

I think by hardcore fan I would mean people who hang out on official forums of any band..... Generally speaking those people are obsessive.

I know I'm way way over my hardcore fan of anything days. And I did do the hardcore fan thing pretty hardcorely in my teens.

Yeah I mean for most artists (of which there are few) that I am a "hardcore fan" of, I have never met very many other hardcore fans that were teenagers. SP is the only band that I am still a "hardcore fan" of since I was a teenager, other artists have fallen out of my fandom spotlight, and then bands that I was a "casual fan" of in my teenage years I've since become a "hardcore fan" of. Or only discovered since turning 20.

And another thing is that you can only discover so much music in your teenage years, it's not like you can only discover all that there in your teenage years.

What a depressing musical world that would be.
