cool it man, if you're going to praise a band, expect people to disagree.

Personally, I don't like them. They had a fairly fresh sound in the early nineties, but as a band, they've evolved very little, unless you consider American Idiot to be a huge step foward.

I do like them better than most pop punk bands but, nevertheless, it is still pop punk.

fuck no dude who zzzzzzz was totally right....godamn poppy-punk lookin emo faggots. they're shit gets way over played and when i hear it, i change the radio station

As i said, their old shit is way better. Dookie and Nimrod were their best albums. Insomniac was also good, but they steered away from punk with american idiot, its more like pop/punk. they shoulda stayed punk

they were always pop punk, American Idiot is if anything, less poppy than a lot of their earlier albums.

they were not punk rock ever
bad brains, the clash, misfits, minor threat, germs, ramones, sex pistols are punk rock.
greenday was maybe alternative rock in the early days, being passed off as punk.
now they are poppy.
bullshit

they aren't insignificant, though. whether you like the genre or not, they are a main inspiration for countless pop punk and emo bands. everytime i see a punk band play, they do a greenday cover. that must count for something.

they are somewhat influential, there are definitely more influential bands in punk, and some bands within Green Day's pop punk subgenre can compare to them.

that sounds quite different. the only thing i can think that is similar is the intro/verse riff, and that's pushing it.

Being the inspiration for punk bands means nothing, seeing as 99% of punk reprises the exact same musical formula.

Yucccch Green Day have always sucked. I don't care what of theirs is "punk" or what isn't "punk". Whatever they are or were, it was always bad.
