    Tough look for NCTH. I like almost every song on it, and Cigarettes and Saints is their best song (probably a top 5-10 song of the decade for mine). The fact is is their worst-sounding and least-cohesive LP (apart from GSOI) seems to knock it down a peg for most. I'd probably rather listen to it than Sister Cities a lot of the time to be honest.

    Macy's Day Parade J.A.R. (Jason Andrew Relva) 2000 Light Years Away Jesus of Suburbia Stay the Night When I Come Around J.A.R. v Brain Stew was the toughest choice here for mine.

    As time passes I've gravitated toward Suburbia most. Weird comp but I think of Elliot Smith. His later works may have been more technically impressive/expansive etc. But either/or has his best songs so that one is my favourite. I think Suburbia has the best songs of any TWY record so I give my vote to Suburbia.

    Revolution Radio kinda reminds me of Anti-Flag, especially at the start. Still Breathing and Forever Now are great, the rest is just okay.

    When the American Idiot single dropped I was obsessed with International Superhits but my music knowledge was really limited, in fact my family had only just gotten the internet and I would never have thought to look up a band I like for more information. So I figured if the band had a greatest hits compilation, they must have been finished. I remember seeing that iconic video clip on the tiny TV in my room and I didn't even realise it was Green Day at first. I hadn't seen them a whole lot, apart from some Australian concert footage my friend had showed me from when Billie was blonde. But I knew it sounded like Green Day. The vocals had that effect on them so I just couldn't be certain it was Billie Joe singing. But the song was so freaking good and the film clip was too. And whatever TV program I was watching finally placed the band name and song title over the clip right near the end and it confirmed to me that indeed Green Day was still around, and just as good as ever. For a few weeks American Idiot became my favourite song and I just wanted all my friends to hear it. Then it launched this band that I loved but had little idea about from being essentially retired in my mind, to being the biggest band in the world. I still own like four or five copies of the album (apparently when you tell every person you know about how excited you are for it, they all buy you copies for your birthday or Christmas or whatever it was). It is still one of my favourite albums of all time. And soon after it came out a Green Day show was my first concert (Simple Plan opened and I was in the seats with my dad and brother because I didn't exactly know what a mosh pit was but however I tried to describe it to my mum must have made it sound too scary). There is no way I'd be so into music today if not for that song.

    I remember my first thought be "They're back." I hadn't followed them a ton since the 90s, so I wasn't that familiar with Warning. Just knew it hadn't been as successful as their earlier stuff. But yeah, I knew "American Idiot" was going to be something special.

    I remember when "American Idiot" dropped as a single and how fucking psyched I was for that record. Incredible lead single.

    Age wise: American Idiot came out when I was 14. It was the album that blew my mind and made me a music lover. 21st Century Breakdown came out when I was 19. I would drive around and sing along with every word. That explains why American Idiot is The One for me but looking at each objectively I just think I'd put seven or eight AI songs ahead of anything from 21CBD. Onto the next debate, I can't stand Know Your Enemy. Music videos were still a thing in Australia when Know Your Enemy debuted and I waited in front of the TV for ages until it came on. That song seemed so uninspired and forgettable it immediately tempered my expectations for the album, which is the exact opposite of what a lead single should do and is also exactly what Oh Love and Father of All have done for me too. Bang Bang less so but it didn't exactly get me excited. I consider the run from Dookie through AI absolutely perfect. International Superhits is probably my most played album of all time. Green Day is probably (still) the best live band on the planet, at least in the stadium division. I'm happy with that and anything else they do that I can find some enjoyment in will be a bonus.

    after a few listens I like Lover, I Am Not Afraid, Drink Too Much, Killing My Time, About You. The rest kinda drag for me

    All good none on par with their best 20-30 songs imo but glad you like it even more than I do

    My most recent relisten (first in a long while) revealed to me that Before the Lobotomy is one of the best tracks on there. Had never felt that way previously. It's great.

    I'd listen to every Green Day album from Dookie to American Idiot in full on a loop for a week. I might even through 21CBD into that as well, even though I feel like it has lots of good songs no great ones. My post-peak Green Day (trilogy and RR and this) playlist might be as small as: . Stay the Night . Stray Heart . Brutal Love . X-Kid . Still Breathing . Forever Now Pretty decent EP but not ideal given that is from four albums... I'll still check out this new one even though every aspect of this is VERY "we are 50 years old but we are still cool right?"

    Not a big fan of the album (agree the downtempo songs are not quite there for me yet, though I think she has some potential in that area). About You and Killing My Time are one of the best one-two punch debut singles in a long time though.

    Avoiding this tour but continuing to support the Menzingers provided they make better choices, as they always have throughout their entire career to my knowledge, seems like a sensible course of action. They seem like good people with their hearts in the right place which makes me think they either a) still don't know, or b) have their hands tied somewhat (not sure what the legal ramifications of kicking a band off a tour without concrete evidence to back up any claims about said band and/or members thereof would be, but there could certainly be some). I wouldn't attend this tour but I am still very excited for the new album and hope the band does its homework very thoroughly before booking support acts in the future. If they do, I would love to see them live one day.

    Of course they weren’t aware of them when they booked the tour. Nobody seriously thinks they were, there’s almost no way they could have been. The problem is it’s been eight weeks and I guarantee that the people in this thread aren’t the only ones who have tried to contact the band with these allegations. It gets to a point where unless they have someone just deleting all of their DMs on all of their accounts without looking at them, they’ve learned about it.

    Yeah if not for this thread I'd have no idea about any accusations and I'm pretty sure the band doesn't either. I just tried looking it up and Google came up completely empty -- just stories about Culture Abuse accusing From First to Last of stealing their cover art. The accusations never gained traction and that of course does not mean they are untrue, but it does mean I'm giving the Menzingers the benefit of the doubt. I don't believe they knew about any accusations before bringing Culture Abuse on tour (why would they then bring them in that case -- even a band full of assholes which the Menzingers are decidedly not would avoid that controversy). Worst-case scenario, the Menzingers have heard about the accusations by now. How can they really investigate them?

    Not a big fan of the new song at this stage, hopefully it grows on me. Just doesn't seem catchy enough. Different at least, and I look forward to seeing what else Butch brings out of them.

    Part of that is green day and Weezer have older fans that don't stream as much.
