Fuck you and your sellout machine
I seen your picture in a magazine
You're looking good for the fuck-up rich
Just to satisfy the piece of fucked up corporate shit
Look at you asswipes
I betcha you're proud
You called yourself punk
To please the yuppie crowd

Chorus
Who listens to Green Day?
Who can buy such junk?
Who can listen to Green Day?
If you do then admit you're not punk

Who the fuck do you think you are?
Phony punks don't get very far
Souped-up bubblegum punk rock
More accepted by me as bubblegum pop
You call yourself punk
To please the yuppie crowd

Who listens to Green Day?
Who can buy such junk?
Who can listen to Green Day?
If you do then admit you're NOT PUNK!

    General CommentSong is dissing Green Day. They are not punk. They are a corporate product like Britney Spears :)

    It was recorded back in like 1995, but of course it still has real meaning today!

    General CommentI haven't actually heard this song. I love Green Day and Im not punk.

    I think its cool that someone dissed them, cos really... WHO CARES?!? As long as they dont change and BECOME Britney Spears Ill love them.

    The only reason this guy would have made this song is because of all the poser who claim to love Green Day but actually just love the media.

    "Oh look at me! I know the coolest songs! Im like so totally cool! Im so great because I like Green Day! Theyre sooo- oh wait... OMG Green Day are like soooo yesterday! The Pussycat Dolls are sooo cool! Lets walk around in miniskirts so pathetic men can perve!"

    Phhhhhhht. I hear that too many times. They dont care about the song, or the band, just whats hot. I say, GET A LIFE.

    Peace out

    General CommentThey ARE Britney Spears. They ARE just a product. You miss the entire point of the song. They are a corporate product, just like Britney. You miss the point because you are their target demographic.

    To the guy who said this song is crap...You've never even heard the song. I'm sorry the lyrics hurt your widdle feewings. You're probably the douchebag who got my post deleted. Way to be a hypocrite. It's called free speech.

    It's okay though, this is a real punk song by a real punk band so I didn't expect any of you little emo kids to dig it anyway. Poseurs.

    And you know what? The point of the song is not "if you're not punk you suck" it's "if you make money and become a corporate shill by using a 'punk' IMAGE then you SUCK" This is why Green Day sucks.

    Damn, it's such a SIMPLE meaning I really didn't think I'd have to be explaining it to you tots. Oh well.

    General CommentI agree, Green Day's old stuff is WAY better.

    It's okay though, this is a real punk song by a real punk band so I didn't expect any of you little emo kids to dig it anyway. Poseurs.

    Yeh, this band is so good that 3 people, excluding me, have been arguing over it and they only have one song.... What a great punk band
